A History Of The Ball Pit!

Over the past several years, ball pits have made a huge comeback. They were a huge part of any indoor children’s playground in the 1980s and ’90s, and you can now find adults taking selfies in vast pools of colourful plastic balls at Instagram-friendly pop-up museums and bars, on boats, and even in offices in New York, Philadelphia, London, Sydney, Mexico City, and beyond.
