Today in Play: Playgrounds bring "peace of mind, peace of heart"

"Today in Play" is a regular feature on the KaBOOM! blog, featuring the latest news on play and KaBOOM! media mentions.

Laughing swing
Who wouldn't want to play on a swing that laughs along with you? Sounds like fun! "When you sit on it, it chuckles. As you swing, it laughs, and the higher you go, the harder it laughs." Read more about the laughing swing here (Playscapes).

Recent and upcoming playground builds
A KOOL-AID grant recipient in Cleveland is putting out a call for donations (Cleveland.com).

A teen reflects on the recent playground build in West Seattle: "It wasn’t just a business that came together to build this playground, it was also a whole lot of volunteers. The collaboration with a big business like The Bank of America, a volunteer organization like KaBOOM!, and the community at large, achieved a great outcome." Read more teen reflections and check out some must-see photos (West Seattle Blog).

Someone talking about an upcoming build in Camden, N.J. says, "There aren't a lot of parks readily available in our area within walking distance...This will bring our parents a lot of peace of mind and peace of heart." (Courier Post (N.J.)).
