HOW IT ALL STARTED
Aimee Knox started Kingdom Playground Products in 1988. She designed playgrounds for schools, churches, apartment buildings, and other small commercial businesses.
The business did very well, but after running it for a number of years, she decided to set the business aside and focus on other career goals.
Her son Sam decided to pick up the family company, but he wanted to shift from focusing on commercial products to instead offering residential backyard playgrounds directly to customers online. Learn why below!

Growing up, we were always outside. Playing on playgrounds, climbing trees, riding bikes—you name it! I loved being outside with my siblings and friends, and it saddens me to see that happening less and less these days.
With the growing trend of children remaining inside, often spending more time with screens than with God’s creation, I wanted to be a part of encouraging families to teach their children to enjoy outside play time.
