Communalized Play

Hoping to stave off individualism, parents formalize interaction through toys

Implications - As technology infiltrates childhood more and more, the desire to push children in a more social-centric direction is taking precedent to help stave off the effects of a society heavily focused on individualism. Requiring multiple players, the toys identify a shift from natural socialization to a new reality where child interaction has evolved to require instigation by parents and playtime aids. This notion is actually dual purpose, as it foster relationships between parents that are craved, but rarely started because of a lack of time and purpose.
