Abstract [en]

With this study we intend to investigate and analyse three different preschool’s holdings of toys and discuss the result in relation to the creation of subject. The investigation in this study consists of an inventory of the holdings of toys at three different preschools. We have used an already existing system for classification which is composed by Nilsson and Nelson (2002). The results give a detailed survey of collected material in the form of tables in which we indicate the comparisons which are relevant to our purpose. In the analysis we have compared the preschool’s holdings of toys and, among other findings, concluded that the class of Household appliance/food is dominating at all the preschools we have visited. Furthermore we have found that the different preschools create a limited conception of the world through their toys. In the study we can confirm that toys give children a perception of what the world looks like and, in that way, contribute to the children’s subject creation. The different toys at the preschools convey a message which not always is in line with the society in general and its views on what values should be embraced by its citizens.
