Play The Mumsnet Babies Podcast

    • Kids & Family

In this podcast we take a look at the psychology of play - and find out what’s really going on in babies and small children’s brains when they’re doing it. Does it matter what kind of play they (or you!) gravitate toward? Should you provide lots of stimulation - or is a bit of boredom a good thing? If, like lots of us, you find 20 minutes of pretend shops or playing ‘horsies’ somewhat wearing, Mumsnetters have cunning ways of keeping a child amused while you have a bit of a lie-down - plus brilliant thoughts on which toys really work for each stage of the game, and which aren’t worth shelling out for.
