Tim Gill is a well known voice in the world of play. I only came across him in the last 6 months or so and he’s been very helpful to me on a couple of occasions providing insights and suggestions you can only acquire after years of immersion in a subject. Yes, it seems that Tim is immersed in play. What a fine place to be. I’m reblogging this particular post because of the all important fun element. Thanks Tim, thanks New South Wales lads.

  1. Thanks for reblogging this Alex, and for the warm words too. It’s a great video, no? And an apposite response to my recent post picking up Kidshealth’s advice to parents on swing safety.


    • Just checked your photos from Australia. Looks like a great trip. What is that wee animal on your shoulder? Also, are lizards the size of that one on the tree common sites on beaches? Have a great week, Alex.


  2. Just on a wee break from work and back at it in a few moments. You’re welcome. Yeah, it is a great piece. I need to find something like this closer to home in Atlantic Canada. New South Wales would be wonderful too though. Cheers
