Toys, games, and media by Jeffrey H Goldstein( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a glance at where toys have come from and where they are likely to go in the years ahead. The focus is on the interplay between traditional toys and play, and toys and play that are mediated by, or combined with, digital technology. As well as covering the technical aspects of computer-mediated play activities, the authors consider how technologically enhanced toys are currently used in traditional play and how they are woven into children's lives. The authors contrast their findings about technologically enhanced toys with knowledge of traditional toys and play. They link their studies of toys to goals in education and to entertainment and information transfer." "This book will appeal to students, researchers, teachers, child-care workers, and more broadly, the entertainment "industry." This volume may be appropriate for courses that deal with the specialized subject of toys and games. However, many courses in Media Studies, Education and Teacher Training, and Child Development will also inevitable have a component to cover this topic."--Jacket
The psychology of humor; theoretical perspectives and empirical issues by Jeffrey H Goldstein( Book )

22 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Psychology of Humor: Theoretical Perspectives and Empirical Issues examines theoretical perspectives and empirical issues concerning the psychology of humor. Theoretical views of humor range from the physiological to the sociological and anthropological. The relations between humor, laughter, and smiling are considered, along with the connection between collative variables and arousal.Comprised of 13 chapters, this book begins with an introduction to the history of thought and major theoretical issues on humor, followed by a description of models of different aspects of humor. The next section deals with empirical issues in which selected research areas are given detailed attention. The relations between humor, laughter, and smiling, on the one hand, and collative variables and arousal, on the other, are analyzed. Subsequent chapters explore the cognitive origins of incongruity humor by comparing fantasy assimilation and reality assimilation; a two-stage model for the appreciation of jokes and cartoons; and the social functions and physiological correlates of humor. The relationship between arousal potential and funniness of jokes is also explored, together with humor judgments as a function of reference groups and identification classes. The final chapter presents an annotated bibliography of published papers on humor in the research literature and an analysis of trends between 1900 and 1971. This monograph will be of interest to psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, and behavioral scientists

Toys, play, and child development by Jeffrey H Goldstein( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anything to do with children's entertainment is a source of controversy: children's television programmes, musical preferences, and leisure activities are frequent sources of debate. Toys and play are often singled out for attention, particularly war toys, sex-typed toys, and video games with aggressive themes. Are these harmful to children? Are they addictive? Alternatively, can parents facilitate children's learning with educational toys? Toys, Play, and Child Development explores these and other questions. Parental attitudes and reactions towards war toys are described, as are the children's views themselves. Toys and play are shown to contribute to the development of language, imagination, and intellectual achievement and to be effective in child psychotherapy

Toys and communication by Luísa Magalhães( )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are few scholarly books about toys, and even fewer that consider toys within the context of culture and communication. Toys and Communication is an innovative collection that effectively showcases work by specialists who have sought to examine toys throughout history and in many cultures, including 1930's Europe, Morocco, India, Spanish art of the 16th-19th centuries. Psychologists stress the importance of the role of toys and play in children's language development and intellectual skills, and this book demonstrates the recurrent theme of the transmission of cultural norms through the portrayal, presentation and use of toys. The text establishes the role of toy and play park design in eliciting particular forms of play, as well as stressing the child's use of toys to 'become' more adult. It will be beneficial for courses in education, developmental psychology, communications, media studies, and toy design."
