Summary/Abstract: This article presents some of the results of a three-year research project on the "Traditional and Contemporary Children's Games". Through the prism of the biographical method and through an interdisciplinary approach, the author shows the changes in the child's play brought by changes in the cultural environment and lifestyle. Childhood is extremely sensitive to changes in both the micro-environment (family and peer group), as well as in the macro-environment (economy, culture) in which society exists. While studying childhood and its components, such as children's play, it is necessary to clarify the changes in society as a whole.
