Play is an essential right to child's physical and emotional health. In coping with hospitalization, the toy is presented as a resource to minimize its effects.

The information collected was systematized through Content Analysis. The results, in different numbers of samples, pointed to the acceptance of the necessary procedures for the child's rehabilitation.
