REIS, Daniela Castro dos et al. A descriptive study of child's play in an Amazonian Riverside community. Temas psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.4, pp. 745-758. ISSN 1413-389X.

Play is a universal phenomenon which has peculiar aspects which are influenced by elements of the physical, social, and cultural environments by the characteristics of children. These aspects allow us to understand the joke as a product and producer of human development, because it is through it that the individual experiences in a safe way, behaviors that, in normal situations, ie, outside the play context, could have aversive social consequences. The objective of this study was to describe the Amazonian riverine games. Participated in the study 66 children and adolescents living in the community Araraiana river, whose age is between 0 and 18 years, including 32 boys and 34 girls. We used the sociodemographic schedule (ISD) and the Inventory of Spontaneous Play (IEB). The data revealed a diversity of games: a symbolic play, turbulent/agonistic play, games with rules, locomotor play, play with objects and animals and joke construction. The results demonstrate that the jokes express, mostly day to day community as building toys boat and shotgun situations with domestic issues (kitchen, doll) and linked to livelihood such as fishing, canoeing lead, build cage. Therefore, the games generally portray specific aspects of the physical, social and cultural environment of childhood in the riverside community studied.
