Neophilic Modification: an experiment in novelty

This report by Bob Hughes presents the findings from a three year study investigating what, if any, is the relationship between play environment modification and children’s locomotor play levels. In addition to assessing play’s contribution to children’s physical health and the obesity agenda, the experiment also provides valuable qualitative and quantitative data on the different manifestations of novelty and their various impacts.
