Danish Company Creates World’s Most Creative Playgrounds That’ll Make You Want To Be A Kid Again
LEGO aren’t the only Danish engineers inviting kids to celebrate their imagination. One Danish company is building creative one-of-a-kind playgrounds, and they’re every kid’s dream.
MONSTRUM, founded by former theater set designers Ole Barslund Nielsen and Christian Jensen, has been making elaborate and whimsical playgrounds since 2003. From a giant electric eel swirling around a lighthouse to a princess’ tower and a rocket ship mashup – these imaginative playgrounds are inviting children to play in Denmark, Sweden, Egypt, and other countries.
Scroll down, and let us know in the comments which one of these thematic playgrounds you’d want in your back yard.
Welcome to our playground in Liseberg, Tivoli in Gothenburg! Swing in gigantic nets and climb as high as you dare (adults might be tempted too), and enjoy close encounters with solar reflections and giant birds.
2 The Crooked Houses
Back in the days in 1800-something, when Brumleby was located in the countryside there was a dairy and a slaughterhouse at Brumleby. The idea of the playground is to create a piece of this old Brumleby to remind us of its fantastic history.
3 Odense Zoo
The story takes place on the African savannah. The Lion Chunga lies comfortably, hiding from the small goats and dreaming of his next meal. Behind the grass, you will see a glimpse of the old hut in the trees with two giant slides.
4 The Blue Whale
Can you imagine anything better on a Sunday morning than to be swallowed by a blue whale? You can climb up onto the back of the whale by crawling through its mouth and into its stomach. You can also crawl through the hole in the side and into the basket, that sits on top of the whale. From here you can slide down.
5 The Dragon
A large dragon has settled in Mulighedernes Park in Aalborg, so children come play if you dare!
6 The Eel And The Lighthouse
Right next to the National Museum of Bermuda you will find a giant green murray eel wrapped around the a lighthouse.
Have you ever dreamed to be the size of the insects? The playground, Futuroscope frames that adventure with tall grass, large flowers and a giant ant.
8 The Sperm Whale
The Sperm Whale has been the focal point of many exciting stories through times. From story about Jonas and the Whale to the stories on Moby Dick and Pinocchio.
9 Kristineberg Slottspark
The creepy crawling is all over the large playground in Kristinebergs Slottspark. The two giant owls, both 5.5 meters tall, are the king and the queen of the playground. They are ruling over a large slide area, tempting curious boys and girls to enter both long and short slides.
