As parents, we all know how important play is as part of our children’s lives. However, our children change so quickly and what interests them one day will be different to the next, and the needs of play change as our children get older.

IKEA believes play is a basic human need, not just for kids, but for all of us. When children play, they learn, develop, experience and grow; when we play as adults, we expand our creativity, strengthen our bonds and de-stress.

In this Podcast we talk to leading child development expert, Dr Brendon Hyndman about the changing face of play as our children grow.
