Mundane Play

Children imitate the everyday tasks of adulthood during playtime

Implications - The independence that comes with growing up is appealing for obvious reasons; however, the responsibility that accompanies this independence is often pushed to the background. In an attempt to give children full understanding of what it means to be an adult, toys are now reflecting more realistic aspects of being a grown-up. This increases a child's chance of being a well-informed, critical-thinking adult in the future.
