Statement of responsibility: Julie Roberts
Synopsis: "Play, once considered a triviality, unworthy of serious study, is now recognised as the most important childhood activity, imperative for optimum physical, cognitive and emotional development. Although our society does give its children plenty of opportunity for play, the tools it deems necessary for that purpose often have deeply sinister aspects. The best sellers of the past few decades reflect our ever increasing dependence on a false glorification of material wealth, glamour, greed and power."
