Wellbeing is a hot topic and Dr Gummer, CEO and Founder of The Good Toy Guide, is sharing her practical approach to ensuring that, especially at Christmas, everyone has a chance to thrive is just what we need to hear.
From choosing toys, managing expectations (and budgets) and looking after the grown ups in the home too - there’s something for families of all shapes and sizes. Need a little guidance? Check out the below video for more!

So to help you on your journey we have Dr Amanda Gummer, founder of the Good Play Guide - a place where you can find loads of free advice and toys. She has over 20 years experience working with children and families and is widely considered as the UK’s go-to expert on play, toys and child development. She combines her theoretical knowledge with a refreshingly pragmatic approach to family life, that resonates both with parents and professionals. Her book ‘Play’ was published in May 2015 with extracts being published in the USA’s Toy Industry Association’s Genius of Play initiative, for which she is an ‘expert ambassador’. 

Amanda continues to take an active role in research, and is often involved in government policy around children’s issues - currently as a member of two child-focussed All Party Parliamentary Groups, and speaking at the European Parliament in September 2019.
