Triboelectricity - Children playing on a Plastic slide

When two materials are rubbed a kind of effect appears, they become charged. The polarity (what material will become positive and what will become negative) is given by the triboelectric series.
Usually, physics teachers use a pipe and a cat or rabbit hide to demonstrate this effect. This video shows how a children playing on a plastic slide can generate static electricity.
Both, children and slide become charged and that can be noted because the children’s hairs stand on end.
