Playground Nightmares

As if those clanking swing chains weren’t somehow spooky enough, and those boink-y critters that tended to throw you off when you least expected it, here we have, from Russia, some playground elements that are worthy of a horror film.

Do. Not. Go. To.

These playgrounds.

    One has to wonder: why did they do this? What were they thinking? How long were these aberrations allowed to stay there? Who did them, and who cleaned them up (let’s hope they cleaned them up!) These images lead me to think that the places where these images are taken are not safe places for children.


    You knew we would follow the trail to RANSOM RIGGS : his “spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.” Tricky! Its paperback comes out this week.
