Re: Favourite Playground Ride?

I still like those little plastic motorbikes on springs.

I think I'm getting a tad too big & heavy for them now though

I've always wanted to get all my biking gear on (race leathers, lid etc) and have a play on one of them. I've not been quite drunk enough at the right time yet....

Re: Favourite Playground Ride?

I used to love the roundabout, but I get sick on them these days (mind you, it didn't help that I was sitting on one taking pictures of our friends kids opposite me to get a blury background - I was fine until I took the camera away from my eye )

Re: Favourite Playground Ride?

Outstanding!

It's a long time since I've heard of a girl being described as 'slack'.

I loved the roundabout at the Playground.

But the best playground style ride was the old tyre swing on a tree at home on the farm

Once again, the old memories are the best

I loved the "witches hat" - very dangerous. It was great fun until someone lost a finger.

Dont make them anymore/


Nostalgia aint what it used to be

Re: Favourite Playground Ride?

Took me ages to get the hang of swings: you know, to swing without assistance.

Hanging off the end of roundabouts & getting well dizzy was our innocent way of getting a buzz.

I liked them all. Take the Roundabout after a good Slide and a See Saw... and end in a Swing.
