Another piece of playground equipment that we haven't seen in years, is the merry-go-round. I remember kids pushing people so fast and furiously that they would throw up. Other kids would try to jump off and I remember more than one broken arm or leg in elementary from this piece of equipment.
I had totally forgotten about the merry-go-round until we went to the park yesterday. Junior didn't know what it was.
I never liked the merry-go-round because I always felt sick after riding on it.
What other pieces of playground equipment do you remember as a kid, that they don't usually have now because they are deemed "unsafe"?
