Conceived to explore the relationship between children's vernacular play cultures and their media-based play, this collection challenges two popular misconceptions: that children's play is dying out and that it is threatened by contemporary media such as television and computer games. The result is a wide-ranging and lively investigation of gender, power and social change in contemporary children's play cultures.
