While we were away we got to see a lot of playgrounds. I loved this brilliant construction toy in the playground in Orstedparken, Copenhagen. Different coloured slats that the children fitted together to make houses or towers. Apart from the brilliant concept, I love the colours and the shapes the buildings make from the different angles. I feel a pattern coming on.
I wonder what it is also about distressed wood that is so appealing. Irene reminded me about Piet Hein Eek this morning.
And in turn, it reminded me of Rosalie Gascoigne.
And in other general playground news, I had no idea that this ubiquitous object was nearly 40 years old! Called The Crazy Hen, it was designed in 1970 by Danish designer Tom Lindhardt. My son loves it.
