Not Your Typical Playgrounds

Monstrum

Last month we featured an amazing playground made from used wind turbine parts. While that was inspiring in its creative use of materials, check out these playgrounds that are just plain creative.

These playgrounds by Monstrum, a Danish design firm, are nothing short of amazing. From sinking ships to blue whales to slightly creepy giant spiders, there is no concept they will shy away from. Beautiful bright colors and a sense of whimsy stuck in overdrive result in inspiring spaces where imaginations can run wild.

Each structure is carefully designed to have different zones of activity for different age groups, with a chance for kids of all ages to develop their motor skills. They also tend to look at home in their surroundings, no small feat for an active playspace. Our hats are off to you, Monstrum!
