Playground Kids were a collection of dolls who could play on their dedicated playground equipment thanks to their grasping hands. You could fix them to a climbing frame and they would hang with their hands. Playground Kids' bodies were soft and you could pose them so they looked as if they were actually playing on the playground. Each doll came with different outfits and a styling comb so you could tame their frizzy hair.
There are 15 regular Playground kids; 4 special occasion ones; 4 pre-schoolers; 5 playground kid playsets; 4 country farm kids; 5 coca cola kids and 6 dress-up playground kid outfits. Each was around 16cm tall and each had its name printed on its shoe. And unlike most dolls in the 80s or even today, the Playground Kids were boys and girls so you really could reconstruct your own playtime with them. My favourite was Ricky with his tricycle because there was a boy at school I fancied at the time also called Ricky.
