Abstract

Many children learn how to communicate by playing. The objective of this research is to identify a suitable method to improve children’s social interactions, by designing a toy, according to children’s needs. To achieve this objective, some necessary information about children’s play and social interaction environment, children’s favorite plays, and social skills which improve social interaction were obtained by literature review, interview and a questionnaire. Then a toy was designed, considering the research results and was evaluated by experts. The selected concept which is usable at park and school is a balance base type for maze and marble which is suitable for both solitary and social plays. It stimulates children to social interaction in a physical process and improves their social skills.
