Life in plastic | Recycled bubble-wrap makes for the best indoor playground in Tokyo
Japan, Tokyo – A temporary indoor playground made entirely of recycled plastic, mainly bubble-wrap, opened for children 12 and up at the Play Museum in Tachikawam, Tokyo as seen in footage from Tuesday. Children were seen playing with an popping the bubble-wrap in the ethereal atmosphere of the bright hangar filled with semi-translucent swings and other installations of the playground known as Play Park. “Bubble-wrap is a very interesting material. People use bubble-wrap at home to wrap and protect our belongings, and most adults and children alike play with popping sound by crushing them,” said Rina Oguri, the curator of Play Park. “We chose bubble-wrap as a material because we wanted to use a lot more and play with it in a bigger more adventurous way,” she added. The installation will last until March 2022.
