This Dog Loves His Ball Pit—Here’s How You Can Too

Adult ball pits are popping up around the world. Here’s where to find them.

Yes, this is a dog. Yes, this is a dog in a ball-pit. And yes, this is what pure, unadulterated joy looks like.

If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking how can I experience this level of pure joy? Filling your own kiddie pool with plastic balls is costly and sort of lame, and visiting your local Chuck E. Cheese is absolutely out of the question for what should be obvious reasons. So what’s a dude to do? 

Luckily, adult ball pits are popping up around the world to help us get in touch with our inner child. JumpIn, billed as an “interactive art installation promoting the transformative power of play” and developed by creative agency Pearlfisher, is bringing its 81,000-ball playpen to New York City on August 21 after huge successes in Washington, D.C., and London.

If you can’t make it to New York, don’t fret: Chances are this ball-pit will show up in a city near you very, very soon.
