Yes, remove all danger. Kids should be raised in rubber rooms.

FWIW, I think they have that same thing in the 'little kid' portion of the reconstructed playground at Kilgour ES. So maybe you'll start seeing them around here as well.

Random playground 'safety' question: do kids ever get impaled when they fall by those woodchip things that playgrounds use now?
