Toys and Games in African Societies. Creation and Sharing of Communication Codes

The creation of communication codes in complex stratified companies is a highly complicated process which never ends in a human lifetime. In the contemporary globalised world man is constantly exposed to situations that do not emerge from his cultural environment. An error may occur in these situations such as only due to confusion in the interpretation of certain gestures. The authors of the publication focused on two basic factors which play an irreplaceable role in the process of creating social skills. The first factor was child play as a means of developing social skills. The second selected factor was the process of emulation and creating model situations through puppet theatre.
