While many of us worry about our children and their future, most of us would agree that most kids have a much easier life than us time-poor and over-stressed parents.
Now, Danish company Monstrum has just giving us reason #5864 that kids have it waaaay better than us adults, with their fantastical collection of kids playgrounds.
From giant owls, magical towers, enormous whales and crazy, tilited houses, it may not surprise you to hear that the masterminds behind Monstrum, Ole Barslund Nielsen and Christian Jensen, used to be theatrical set designers before they turned their hands to designing kids playgrounds.
Monstrum was born when the kindergarten that Ole’s son attended needed a new playground installed. Ole rolled up his sleeves and got designing, and since then he hasn’t stopped.
Since 2003, Monstrum have been designing kids playgrounds with the aim to give children a ‘tickle in the stomach’ when they see their whimsical designs, and to use this to draw kids into challenging their motor skills no matter what their abilities or age.
While you originally you had to be lucky enough to be in Denmark to experience one of these magnificent creations, Monstrum has now set their sights on expanding the play across the world, with playgrounds recently been installed by them in London, New York, Singapore and Dubai.
Here’s hoping that the next Monstrum playground will be hitting Australian shores one day!
