Children and Toys: A Bibliography. Uppsala Reports on Education 27.
This bibliography of literature on children and toys covers the period of 1962-1987. About 600 titles, which were collected mainly by literature searches of 10 databases, are covered. The bibliography is divided into three parts. Part I provides an introduction, which includes discussions of technical, quantitative, and qualitative aspects. Part II presents the literature systematically according to specific research issues, citing literature, bibliographies, and reviews on children's development, handicapped children, toys, and puppets. Citations on children's development focus on social and cognitive development, gender socialization and toy preferences, toy structure and play behavior, and war toys and aggressive behavior. Citations on handicapped children concern toy play training and toy libraries. Citations on toys and puppets center on toys in general, toys as educational tools and cultural artifacts, toy trade reports, puppets as educational tools, puppets and puppetry for handicapped and emotionally disturbed children, and puppets in the puppet theatre. Part III presents citations in alphabetical order by author. Related tables on the characteristics of the corpus of studies are appended. (RH)
