Children of all ages play alone or with other children or adults. They like to engage in role play and often mimic grown-ups. Their toys can be expensive or they can improvise and make simple ones. Children are often in a world of their own, a fantasy world. When playing, children learn social skills and problem solving. Playing helps a child grow from having an egocentric view of the world to becoming a social human being. In play, kids develop their creativity and they learn patience.
