Presidential Play Set

For those of us in the play business, a presidential swing set, while not earth shaking news, is an opportunity to remind folks that play "Is important!"

If we understand on the most basic level that play is essential to leading a happy and healthy life, it comes as no surprise that the President would give his children a swing-set. After all, he's Harvard educated.

These days parents are more likely to organized a "play date" where children are supervised by parents, or schedule their child into an organized team sport, rather than allow them to hang out in the back yard immersed in spontaneous activity to amuse and to occupy themselves.

Go Obama.
