This airport themed playground is eye catching and immediately inviting for imaginative play. There are lots of opportunities for swinging, spinning and bouncing as well. Older kids might not find that there is enough to challenge them, but younger kids will love flying the planes and soaring down the big slide. Really small kids will enjoy moving easily around the accessible flooring, bouncing in the airplane bouncers and swinging on the swings.
