One playschool, for instance, had a range of Playmobil toys, but only provided selective access to it. During specific one-hour periods children were placed, in groups of five, at “activity tables”, one of which was devoted to Playmobil.

We can analyse the set of Playmobil toys acquired by the school, and the multimodal texts formed by our video recordings of the children’s play activities.
