(1) Definition of kids slide

What is kids slide? Kids slides can be found in parks, schools, outdoor or indoor playgrounds and backyards.

This simple machine called an inclined plane, it makes moving objects up and down easier, or in this case more fun. Slides can be flat, semi-cylindrical or tubular to prevent falls. The slide is usually made of plastic or metal and has a smooth surface, which can be straight or wavy. The user, usually a child, climbs to the top of the slide via a ladder or stairs, sits on the top of the slide, and then slides down the chute.


(2) The History of Kids slides

The earliest known kids slide was erected on the playground of the Neighborhood House in Washington, DC sometime between the establishment of the Neighborhood House in early 1902 and the publication of the image in the Evening Star (Washington, DC) on August 1, 1903. (The first bamboo slide at Coney Island opened in May 1903, so it is unclear which slide was the earliest - the playground slide or the amusement park slide.

Early slides were often referred to as "Slide, Kelly, Slide" (after the song of the same name), "Helter Skelter" (after the Coney Island slide) or "Shoot the Chutes" (after the water slide became famous by "Captain" Paul Bolton).

The manufacturer, Wicksteed, made a big deal of claiming that the slide was invented by the founder, Charles Wicksteed, and was installed in Wicksteed Park in 1922, the discovery of Wicksteed's oldest slide was announced by the company in 2013.

In fact, Arthur Leyland's book "Playground Technique and Playcraft," Volume 1, originally published in 1909 and revised in 1913, provides complete instructions for the construction of metal playground slides.


(3) Safety of children slides

Slides on playgrounds have been associated with several types of injuries. Most notably, if a slide is not enclosed and raised above the playground surface, users can fall and cause bumps, bruises, sprains, fractures or head injuries. In warm, sunny weather, some materials (e.g., metal) can become very hot. Plastic slides are also susceptible to melting from arson.

Instead of allowing young children to play on the slide by themselves, some parents let them sit on an adult's lap and slide down the slide together. However, this arrangement often results in broken legs if the child's shoe gets caught on the edge of the slide. If children are allowed to use the slide independently, this injury will not occur because the child will stop sliding when the shoe is caught, rather than being pushed down the slide by the adult's weight.



Kids slide is an entertainment facility. Very suitable for lively occasions, the structure of the amusement facility is safe and durable, and its clever design, harmonious colors and the clever combination of various parts of plastic can bring safety, joy and lively feelings to children.

Children need a strong will and confidence to play with the slide, which can cultivate their brave spirit. If you are interested in children’s slides you can read more of our articles.
