The desire for playtime is universal.
Though play differs from culture to culture, generation to generation, it is clearly an instinctual, essential component of human development.
Recent scientific research suggests there is no better pastime for a child than playtime. Much more than simply entertainment, experts consider play to be a child’s work—the primary way in which children learn about themselves, others and their world.
Given the many benefits of play, parents and caregivers naturally want to make the most of it for their children—to choose appropriate toys, encourage positive play experiences and, above all, ensure safe play. The information presented by The Toy Industry Foundation will help you do all that, and more.
The Toy Industry Foundation’s videos about the powerful world of play teach parents, caregivers and children about the joy and countless benefits derived from toys and playtime.
