Retro playgrounds

Plaid Stallions has a fantastic collection of scanned images from toy catalogs and fashion catalogs from the 1970s, including a series from a playground equipment catalog. How incredibly cool is this spaceship!

When I take my children to the park, I can’t get over how advanced some of the playground equipment has become but I also miss the charm of the 1970’s when a pile of concrete and galvanized pipe became a moon rocket or a giant octopus.
