  • Moosh-Moosh Celebrates The First Ever International Day of Play

    June 10, 2024 2 min read

    It's the FIRST EVER International Day of Play! You read it right – a whole day dedicated to fun, games, and all things playful. So, grab your favorite Moosh-Moosh plushie, and let’s dive into why play is the best thing ever!

    Why a Day Dedicated to Play?

    Did you know that 97% of kids think play is super important? That’s almost everyone! But, according to the International Day of Play Network, one in three kids don’t have enough time to play. That’s like a world without snuggles or ice cream! So, we're here to say it’s time to bring play back into our lives, loud and proud!

    To all the grown-ups and big decision-makers out there, listen up! 📢 We need you to:

    • INVEST in children’s well-being by protecting our right to play.
    • PROVIDE children with more time and opportunities to play, including in school.
    • PROTECT our right to play by creating safe and accessible places to play, including for those of us with special needs.
    • RESPECT our rights to be heard in decisions impacting our right to play.
    • SUPPORT us in developing social skills through play.

    The Magic of Play

    Happiness Boost: 71% of kids say play makes them happy. And who doesn’t want to be happy? Whether kids are building a pillow fort or having a tea party with their plushies, those smiles are priceless!

    Friendship Factory: 58% of kids say play helps them make friends. Playing together means sharing laughs, secrets, and adventures – it’s the perfect recipe for friendship!

    Brain Boost: Play helps with thinking, reading, and problem-solving. Whether kids play pretend with their plushie pals or team up to solve puzzles, their brain is getting a workout!

    Skill Builder: Active play helps with balance, coordination, and motor skills. So, encourage kids to jump, run, and twirl – it’s good for them!

    Chat Time: Play helps kids hone their communication skills. Whether whispering secrets to their Moosh-Moosh or explaining the rules of a game, kids are learning to express themselves.

    Creativity Unleashed: Imagination runs wild during play. Kids can create new worlds, dream up stories, and let their creativity shine!

    Moosh-Moosh Loves Play!
