Live 5-2-1-0 Playboxes

Unlock the box. Unleash the fun

Richmond Playboxes are full of outdoor toys and games to play with for free! Boxes may include soccer balls, volleyballs, Frisbees, skipping ropes, badminton racquets, birdies, tennis racquets, tennis balls and games complete with a manual of active game ideas to help guide family play and interaction.

Live 5-2-1-0 Playboxes offer parents and caregivers new ideas on how to play with their kids by providing games and sports equipment with unlimited access and opportunity for families to get outdoors and engage with other families through active play. Playboxes help to enhance environments and remove some of the barriers to access for active outdoor play, as well as foster social connectedness.

The box is for everyone to share. Use the code to unlock the box, play with the toys and then return the toys when done. Don’t forget to lock the box after use!
