About Playground

The Story
A Better Way to Play
There is a better way to play, and at we believe our equipment is the pinnacle of play. Although, our product is often the most affordable in the industry, we maintain the highest quality, not just in product, but also in customer service. We’re obsessive about our brand and it shows. Our innovations set us apart from the crowd as we’re constantly setting out to create new types of play and provide children with meaningful playtime. We’re excited for every child and client that gets to experience our hard work firsthand.

Why Us Our first chapter

NVB Playgrounds, Inc. was founded by Nancy, Victor, and Nicolas Breedlove in 2006. At the time it was branded 19th State of Play, that started as a local online sales resource for Indiana playground equipment, Indiana being the 19th state in the Union. Quickly our vision changed to supply equipment nationwide, and 19th State of Play was not a viable option going forward. We launched a second website that same year of 2006 and our transformation was underway.

Why Us Another new leaf

With our visions of growth and industry dominance in full swing, by 2010 we began manufacturing our own line of playground equipment under the brand. In 2018, we had just under 50 employees working at our two warehouses and continue to grow in responsible ways. We have streamlined processes for our selling partners as well as offer a huge array of in-stock play systems and accessories available to ship within 24 hours of purchase.

Where does the name "" come from?, is a part of a larger organization, NVB Playgrounds, Inc. Our name comes directly from the website name, which is one-of-a-kind, something that no one can duplicate. Our roots are online since inception; thus it only makes sense we function on the most recognizable domain in existence.
