Mall play area brings happiness

It’s good to see that the new play area at the Logan Valley Mall is up and running.

There are lots of happy faces and plenty of room for the adults to sit and observe. The jungle gym is wonderful; climbing and sliding is always a favorite.

The shoe rack and nice carpeting with bright colors are quite an improvement.

One mother told me she is glad to see the ball pit is gone. I agreed — lots of germs there.

My eye caught the fact that there is no gate to keep the little ones in. There are molded structures to climb on that are approximately four feet high and should the toddlers get up there and take two steps back, they can fall.

There are no mats around these, either. Maybe I’m too old, but I’m all about safety.

A bathroom would be good to see as well. Children wait too long to tell you they have to go.

My great-grandson likes his trip so much that he had to go back the next day. My husband and I operated a daycare in our home for 12 years and have wonderful memories.

Thank you, Logan Valley Mall, for the play area.
