The Play Pledge

Finding time to play is easier than you think. We’re helping families find moments of play in the everyday. Join in and make a play pledge!

84% of children wish they could play more with their parents*

Less time playing means less time imagining. It means less time solving problems, less time working together with friends – and less time developing all kinds of essential skills that help children grow up to flourish.

We’re calling on families to make a #PlayPledge and put more play into their day

No time? No problem

Bath time, dinner time and walking-to-school-time can all be playtime, too. In fact, you can find moments to play at the most unexpected moments.

To encourage you to stick to your pledge, you can colour in our #PlayPledge poster with your children!

Build a world of play with us!

When children play, it brings out their natural skills – setting them up for a lifetime of learning. Play also brings families and communities together, which can make whole countries healthier and wealthier. As the LEGO brand celebrates its 90th birthday, we’re doing more than lighting candles on a cake.
