Play and Folklore is a forum for discussion about childhood and children’s culture. It publishes articles, letters, memoirs and research studies that examine what children do when largely free of adult direction or control – their colloquial speech, songs, games, rhymes, riddles, jokes, insults and secret languages, their friendships and enmities, and their beliefs and hopes.
