In contrast to many other businesses, the playground equipment sell is booming after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Especially in the US market, the number of sales becomes double after the governmental decision of closing schools.

Parents are buying playground equipment to keep active and safe their children as well as themselves during this world crisis.

The entire consumption habit has been changed after the coronavirus outbreak.

Kids’ health is a great concern for parents. After closing schools due to Covid-19, the daily routine of a kid has been changed. They are being deprived of physical activity, which was ensured by playgrounds. Parents are now moving to the personal playground equipment to keep their kids physically active.

  • People Are Avoiding Public Places

    People of all ages are at risk of being infected by the coronavirus. Everyone is taking sufficient measures to keep themselves safe. It is advised to keep six feet distance from one person to another. Adult people can take their protection, but kids are not concern about this. They continuously move from here and there of the playground and are quite prone to touching their nose, face, eyes, etc., at intervals. So, parents and kids both are avoiding public places like parks, playgrounds, etc. Instead, they are buying playground equipment for themselves.

    Johns Hopkins expert Keshia Pollack Porter said in an interview that, ‘There’s evidence that the coronavirus can transmit through droplets on objects and surfaces so, for right now, we don’t want kids to touch each other or even to touch an object that another child has just touched, like a ball or playground equipment.’

    He is a professor of health policy and management and associate dean for faculty development at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He also suggested supplying enough potential materials for kids’ physical exercise and mental health.
