Presented by children’s TV presenter, Anna Williamson, the one-minute videos explain the physical, emotional, creative, social, behavioral and inquisitive benefits of play.
Aiming to inform parents and carers of the benefits their children receive when playing, the videos provide a snapshot of some of the best play activities to help nurture these specific benefits.

The value of play is an important message that the BTHA has been promoting through the Make Time 2 Play campaign since its establishment in 2010. The campaign also promotes the important role of toys as ‘the tools of play’ in encouraging healthy child development – an important and positive message for the toy industry.
The campaign currently has a strong following of more than 83,000 on Facebook and is aiming to reach 100,000 followers.
