With mounting student loan debt, stagnant wages and the possibility of Donald Trump becoming president, the adult world is pretty rough right now. Hollywood has taken notice, which why so many of our childhood faves are coming back. Just recently, it was announced that the All That cast, sans Amanda Bynes, is reuniting and Hey Arnold! is getting a brand new movie.
Now, the nonprofit Forward Motion is getting in on the action with a new bar concept that speaks to your inner child. According to Time, the organization hosted a funding party for the world's first "ball pit bar." Founder Ryan Lum explained what it took to get the project off the ground.
"It took a little over a year to actually make it happen as the biggest obstacle was trying to raise enough money to purchase 40,000 ball pit balls," he told Mashable. "After several failed crowdfunding attempts, I decided to just start selling tickets to [the] event that didn’t even exist. It took a long time trying to raise the money but it was all worth it in the end."
Lum says the reactions have been really positive, which is not surprising. Maybe Ben Affleck should give it a visit. We hear he’s been down in the dumps lately.
