Little Tikes Commercial is proud to partner with Unlimited Play to bring inclusive playgrounds to communities so that children of all abilities can experience the value of play side-by-side.
PlayPower, Inc., a global leader in the recreation industry, announced yesterday a partnership between Little Tikes Commercial, one of its leading commercial playground equipment brands, and Unlimited Play, a non-profit organization that builds universally accessible playgrounds.
“We are excited to develop an integrated partnership with a recognized leader and expert in inclusive play,” said Tracy Chamblee, Director of Marketing for Little Tikes Commercial. “The partnership with Unlimited Play will advance the efforts of Little Tikes Commercial to provide the magic of outdoor play to children of all abilities.”
Both partners understand that play is vital for optimal physical, emotional, mental, and social development for children. “Every child deserves the right to play!” said Natalie Mackay, Executive Director of Unlimited Play. “So many children with disabilities spend their days with doctors, therapists, and other adults. Often, when given the chance to visit a playground, these children are forced to watch as everyone else plays. Unlimited Play and Little Tikes Commercial will together give ALL kids the chance to play by building playgrounds where limitations are forgotten and differences are celebrated!”
Little Tikes Commercial and Unlimited Play will make their first appearance as partners in inclusive play at the NRPA 2016 Annual Conference in St. Louis, Missouri on October 6 and 7. The annual conference offers the opportunity for thousands of park and recreation industry professionals to gather for learning, networking, and experiencing the latest in products and services.
