For a child, play is serious fun. This program will help parents, teachers, caregivers, and students understand the complex functions of play. The relationship to objects, whether toys or everyday things, is explored through dozens of scenes of children interacting in classic situations. Discussion by experts and parents and video footage of children at play offer insights into games of imitation, the development of the imagination, stimulation of the senses, and what makes a good toy.
