This Dad Just Turned A Small Spare Room Into His Kid’s Dream Space

Whenever I went to McDonald's as a little girl, I always ran straight to the play place.

My mom practically had to force me out of there when it was time to go home. I remember dreaming that I could have my own personal play area. Of course, it was just wishful thinking, but had I known that it actually was possible to have one, I would have mercilessly begged my parents to build it for me.

Redditor MadManAndrew must have been persuaded by his four-year-old son, because when his cousin moved out and he found himself with a spare room, he transformed it into a complete fantasy land for kids. If your little ones (or you) love slides, you have to check this out.

He wasn't sure what to do with this room, so he decided to turn in into something special for his son.
