The need for better recognition of the child's right to play brought the International Play Association (Scotland) and the Children's Parliament together with children across Scotland to talk about what play means to them and how their experience of play could be better.

They listened to children's voices on the meaning and importance of play and wish to share these voices. This report shares their views with local and national decision-makers in Scotland.

Children across Scotland of different ages and in different settings were consulted in the summer of 2010 - read about what they had to say about play in Scotland today.
