TÜV SÜD will celebrate its 150th anniversary this year. To duly celebrate this, they invited in March parents, communities, day care centers and youth groups to take part in a competition which could bring them and the children a brand new playground. Together with the magazine ELTERN, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, eibe offered equipment for two playgrounds, including construction and approval by TÜV SÜD, with a total value of 25,000 euro as prizes.
Almost two-month term and over 200 candidates: the selection was not easy. Whether participating for the rehabilitation of an old playground or for the installation of a new one, the attendees competed with lovingly-made images and photos.
The community Neef won one of the prizes, designed for a space of 13x10 meters. On behalf for their small community in Rhineland-Pfalz, the parents of 50 children already organized at the beginning of the year the campaign "Save the playground". The former playground was very old and, after the clean-up there was not much of it left. eibe brought a happy ending by replacing them with the ecorino play equipment Beta, playo double swing Condor and playo Pony Spring Rocker.
