McDonald's Playplace (or PlayPlace/Play Place) is an indoor or outdoor playground for children ages 3-9 and are located inside most McDonald's restaurants around the world.
The first PlayPlace with the familiar crawl-tube design with ball pits and slides was introduced in 1987 in the USA, with many more being constructed soon after. They are found in restaurants located in suburban areas or some big cities.
Most Playplaces feature McDonaldland characters, whom can be found inside some games in the tubes, as background characters in some areas, or on seats for a children's birthday party. In some Playplaces, a video game area can be found and may very from classic console systems such as Nintendo (Gamecube), Playstation, and Xbox. Ronald benches may also be found in select McDonald's Playplaces.
Also the indoor McDonald's PlayPlaces have new modern touch screen kids games but the new modern touch screen games are only for the indoor McDonald's PlayPlaces.
