The Pressures of Play – the second part of the Ribena Plus Play report – has found that only 33 per cent of ‘children engage in non-competitive play that risks bumps and bruises, such as climbing a tree’ – whereas 91 per cent ‘watch tv, films or DVDs’.

The report also found that 28 per cent of parents feel under pressure from their child to purchase the latest toy.
