Claire Russell

Claire Russell is an author and the founder of PlayHOORAY, a website which provides parents with Educational play ideas for babies, toddlers and young children. She began sharing her play ideas online after the birth of her son in 2014 with the aim of helping other parents understand the psychology of child’s play and reap the benefits of it. Claire is available for speaking engagements, panel discussions and Q&As.


About Claire Russell

Claire Russell has had huge success in her field, having written over 30 different varieties of her popular ‘playPROMPTS’ activity cards and sold almost 25,000 packs. She speaks on topics such as Baby stimulation for brain development, the importance of play and how it can change a parent and finding creative play activities in your household.


Claire Russell is a firm believer that you do not need a houseful of expensive toys to get kids playing and is acutely aware that many parents don’t have the time to trawl the internet for inspiration either.

As such, in addition to her successful website, Claire has launched an app which has been downloaded 17,000 times in over 50 countries. She has also launched three online courses with 1,000 members signed up. She has worked with companies including the BBC and LEGO and built up a large and loyal following of over 280,000 parents, carers and educators.
