Kids' playgrounds are supposed to be a hub for a child's imagination, so the designs must yield to creativity. While Danish brands such as LEGO and MONSTRUM are superstars with innovative playset creations, some jungle gym designers just seem to miss the mark.

Below is a compilation of playground design fails that are far from friendly. Who knew that once wholesome characters like Frosty, the Snowman or Spiderman could become so inappropriate with just a few bad design placements. Yes, some of these backyard playgrounds are so disturbing you will wonder how the designer or parents missed it. Scroll down below to see photos of hilariously shady playground equipment that are definitely not age-appropriate, but are sure to give you a good laugh. Don't forget to upvote your favs!

The entrance had to be somewhere. Putting an entrance on the front seems reasonable. But the hands! Why? And the way he's leaning back while the hands hold the "entrance" open isn't helping! I think the designer knew exactly what they were doing.

You'd think designers would know by now that certain animals, cartoon characters and people do NOT make good playground rides/games/toys. Maybe it would be best to just put good quality equipment in a playground and give up on this kind of thing.
