Play Wales produces publications that raise awareness about children and young people's play and good practice guidelines in providing for it. We publish books, a magazine and information sheets on a wide range of topics.

We provide an enhanced publications service for members including previews of Play Wales information sheets, magazine articles and other publications; as well as access to our responses to consultations. 

The Play Wales Library is based in our office in Cardiff Bay. We also have a smaller collection of reference books and resources in the Glyndŵr University library in Wrexham. We believe it is the most comprehensive collection of books on children's play and play provision in Wales.

More information about all of our publications - toolkits, magazines, top tips, storybooks and more - can be found in the list in the blue column on the right.
