This chapter introduces an edited edition of essays which emerge from the project Children's Playground Games and Songs in the New Media Age. It describes the project, and presents key findings and concepts. These consist of 'cultural rehearsal' (iterative performance of games and songs using new media); 'ludic bricolage' (children's adaptation and transformation of game structures); and 'heterotopian games' (games which migrate between virtual worlds, in particular the imaginary worlds of computer games and the playground).
