A Missouri homeowners association is seeing red over a purple playground.

The Raintree Lake Neighborhood Homeowners Association has ordered the Stout family to remove the playground, arguing that it must be “subdued and within harmony with other colors of the community.”

The homeowners association has threatened fines, sanctions and jail time if the playground doesn't come down, the Stouts said.

Homeowner Marla Stout said that the playground has been in the yard for two years. She said they even spoke to neighbors about signing a petition in support of the playground, but that wasn’t enough for the association.

Stout has a message for the homeowners association.

“Just drop it, say you’re sorry and move on,” she said. “I mean, find better things to spend my money on.”
