Resumé

Based on a field study in a kindergarten among children in Denmark, this paper explores playing activities on a digital swing called SON-X Octavia. SON-X Octavia is an interactive sound unit, which can be attached to any swing chain, containing different types of playing activity. The paper explores the relationship between SON-X, the playing activities, and risky play. The aim is to show that the SON-X Octavia offers the children play possibilities that allow them to explore different types of play practices.
