Flashback to your childhood. Do you remember how you played? There were NO indoor play areas.
All you needed was a bit of space, maybe a ball and before you knew it, you and the kid next door became best friends. But, somewhere between work, traffic, malls and gadgets, children have forgotten the joy of playing.
