The Make Time 2 Play campaign was established in 2010 to highlight the importance of play in children’s lives. It is administered by the British Toy and Hobby Association whose members are committed to promoting the benefits of helping children to develop naturally through play. The campaign highlights the value that play has for people of all ages and information can be found throughout this website on why a healthy play diet is such a vital ingredient for child development.
