Turner, Charles W.; Goldsmith, Diane
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 21, 2, 303-315, Apr 76
To assess the effects of toy guns and toy airplanes on children's antisocial behavior, 4- and 5-year-olds (ten in Study I and 13 in Study II) were observed during 15-16 free play sessions. During experimental sessions children played either with (novel, aggressive) toy guns or with (novel, nonaggressive) toy airplanes in addition to their usual toys. (JH)
