Where’s the Fun From? – Who Invented Slip ‘N’ Slide?

In this installment of my YouTube series, Where’s the Fun From?, I tell the story of a father who changed summers forever with the invention of a wet, yellow landing strip for airborne children, the Slip ’N’ Slide.

Author, documentary filmmaker, and toy industry veteran Tim Walsh recently founded a new game company called Roo Games. Additional Where’s the Fun From? episodes are available on his Seize the Play YouTube channel.
