“If we love our children and want them to thrive, we must allow them more time and opportunity to play, not less. Yet policymakers and powerful philanthropists are continuing to push us in the opposite direction — toward more schooling, more testing, more adult direction of children, and less opportunity for free play.”   ~ Dr. Peter Gray

Coming January 1, 2015:
A new addition to the Life Media family of digital magazines!

Child's Play Magazine

Child's Play Magazine will provide inspiration and research about the importance of play to children's development and learning, as well as a wealth of reviews of games and toys,  books and films about play. We will also explore how adults can learn from their children to become more spontaneously playful. So please join some of the world's experts on the benefits of play, as well as parents and educators, as we create the best play environments possible for our children (and ourselves!).

You can support the preparation and launch of this unique, advertising-free magazine by signing up as a Charter Subscriber ... the pre-launch price is just half the cost of a regular subscription. But hurry because this offer expires very soon!

After you become a Charter Subscriber, and while you're waiting for the first issue, we invite you to explore this website using the links in the navigation bar above, contact us if you want to contributre or advertise, and read some of the research, articles, and quotes we have collected.
