A couple of Mondays per month, PlayGroundology screenshots a cyberspot that focuses on playgrounds, or play. I hope readers dive in and explore. Even if you’ve seen the selection before, take a moment and check to see what content has been added recently.
Think of this as a very slow stumble upon, an invitation to relish something new or to revisit an old friend. Some of the people and places may be household names in the world of play and playgrounds, others not so much. I hope all will pique your interest in what they have to offer and further your own possibilities for playfulness.

Thanks to the Polish blog Children’s Time for reviving my memory about this research. I was not able to locate IKEA’s original Facebook posting on the global study but found a downloadable copy of the playreport at Third Door Workhub and Nursery.
Disclosure – I live in what is quite likely the only city in the world that has a Facebook group dedicated to having an IKEA store reopen after the company moved on over 15 years ago. We do have IKEA furniture and toys in our home and enjoy taking in an occasional breakfast at their Boucherville location when visiting family in Quebec.
If you haven’t viewed the short animated film (above) or flipped through the study it’s worth a few moments of your time.
Happy ScreenShot Monday.
