Providing the Gift of Play
Positive impact of play on childhood
At Little Tikes Commercial, we believe in the magic of play. Research has proven that play helps children develop physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Play is the universal language of childhood, but not every child in the world has a safe environment to play in.
To help bring the magic of play to more children across the globe, we’ve partnered with Kids Around the World, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that builds playgrounds in war-torn and impoverished communities in over 70 countries for decades. Through this new partnership, we’re committed to donating 5% of sales from a variety of our commercial-grade playgrounds to Kids Around the World in support of their mission.
An inspiring mission
Kids Around the World’s mission is to help children in orphanages, refugee camps, and poverty-stricken communities experience hope through play. To do this, Kids Around the World identifies commercial playgrounds in the US that are scheduled to be replaced, then disassembles, refurbishes, and ships them overseas to communities in need. Trained installers or mission teams then reassemble these playgrounds in support of local partners that want to help kids flourish.
In most locations, this is the first time these children have ever seen a playground. The joy they experience when playing on a playground for their first time is nothing short of magical.
In the mountains of Ecuador, playgrounds have provided access to entire families through public parks where clubs can be held, and outreach can be offered.
In schools throughout Haiti, where education combats poverty, teachers are leveraging the proven relationship between play and academic success by unlocking creativity, imagination, problem solving, and critical thinking.
In the cities of Palestine, where trust between Muslims and Christians is rare, ministries are stepping into relationships with schools, local governments, and communities by creating places where children of any faith can play together.
In the refugee camps of Uganda, where countless children have been forced to flee, playgrounds have created a safe haven where children can experience joy and laughter and where trauma response ministries can mend broken hearts.
Little Tikes Commercial is committed to donating 5% of sales to Kids Around the World in support of their wonderful mission. The donation will apply to purchases on all the playgrounds appearing below. In addition, you will receive 25% off the list price!

“We’ve seen much fruit develop as we’ve co-labored with Kids Around the World. Their capacity to leverage playgrounds as a strategy to transform children and their communities, and their desire to see empowerment at the local level is exemplary.”
