New York offers ‘Jump In’ – a giant ball pit for adults

They are saying that it’s stress management, but a giant ball pit of plastic balls is designed for adults to unwind and have a laugh.

The New York ball pit, Jump In, has been built by Pearlfisher, jammed full of 81,000 white balls along Broadway. Monday thru Friday, until September 21, you can dive in for free, offering up a donation which goes to charity.

“When was the last time you played? Studies have shown that play can bring about extraordinary results for creative thinking which is why Pearlfisher partnered with charity Right To Play last Christmas to champion the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity,” Pearlfisher says of Jump In.

“Snow is renowned for encouraging play in us all and so, inspired by playful snowy scenes, the JUMP IN! art installation invited visitors to play in a pool of 81,000 white balls. The result was a highly immersive, creative experience that promoted a sense of togetherness and seasonal creative joy,” site says.

Pearlfisher says they “build the most desirable brands” on their About Us page. “Based in London and New York, we share a single philosophy and unique structure that enables us to most effectively bring our collective talent and expertise to every brand.
