The game is a vital and necessary element in the development of both the individual and society as a whole. By the complexity of the nature of the games, one can judge the way of life, mores and skills of this society. The game is closely connected with the development of personality, and it is during the period of its particularly intensive development – in childhood – that it acquires special significance.

Play is the first activity that plays a particularly significant role in the development of personality, in the formation of its properties and the enrichment of its inner content.
