3.0 out of 5 stars coffee table book 27 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase
Nice book to look at.
Lots of ideas & inspiration. Mostly colour photographs. Little info on each pic about designer/photo.
Very wide range of items connected to children eg: toys, furniture, decor & playgrounds...

As a result have made card board castles & and a sandpit from an old plank!

If honest, although nice for the shelf or coffee table, wish I have borrowed it from the library rather than bought it...

5.0 out of 5 stars two thumbs up! 23 July 2009
By Molly Elmer - Published on Amazon.com
I just received my copy of Play All Day : Design for Children and...
i LOVE it!
The book is full of fabulous designers with the most rockin' products, one of my very favorite being Dante Beatrix. Play All Day covers just about everything, with categories ranging from "home sweet home" to "express yourself". If you want to be up to date with current design for children or you are just looking for a fun coffee table book, be sure to pick up your own copy. You will not be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative, Imaginative and Inspiring! 30 Jan 2010
By w. cook - Published on Amazon.com
I sighed and swooned over this gorgeous tome of kidlicous design. Play All Day is a book that creative parents will want to keep permanently on their coffee table to be devoured by wee folk and big people alike. No stone is left unturned in this beautiful, ginormous exploration into the art of play - architecture, toys, playgrounds, decor, furniture, illustration and photography - made by creative parents and talented designers around the world. From the cardboard castles of Ann Wood, to the engaging kid-craft projects of Arounna Khounnoraj of BloesemKids. In three words...Innovative,Imaginative and Inspiring!
5.0 out of 5 stars A design book for the whole family 7 Oct 2009
By Bazyli Dudek - Published on Amazon.com
Many children's books these days that pretend to be for children actually are made for adults.. Luckily this one which is about design for children AND adults is an affair for the whole family. The range includes toys, objects and sustainable furniture but also more holistic approaches addressing food, playgrounds and architecture for children. Being not the usual looking-for-Christmas-gift publication Play All Day shows new ways in design for kids and their parents likewise.
