Thanks for the clarification. So the material used *really* makes the
 Ok. This will most definitely limit the number of use cases, at least here
in Germany.

I really don't get the concept. Why would you want to create a thing like
Why would you go there instead of a real playground?
I can imagine a thousand injuries that can happen even *if* everything
around you is padded.
Especially if two or more children are involved. There are always some hard
bits. They are called skull, bone and teeth.
And there are a lot of injuries that don't involve hard impacts at all,
like dislocations, strangulations etc..
So if there is risk anyway, why don't have some fun with it? Go out, climb
a try, fall from one, climb up again ..
