Most of the children loved to play in groups and only very few children preferred to play alone and quietly. However, children seem to be getting fewer opportunities to play. This study looks into the satisfaction, enthusiasm and effect of play in children. The time durations of play have changed. Children are still enthusiastic to play in spite of the restrictions given to them to play. The objective of the study was to compare the attitude of parents towards child’s play in rural and urban areas. The study was conducted in the Municipality of Angamaly and the Panchayat of Nedumbassery in Ernakulam district, Kerala. The study was conducted among the mothers of children between the age group of 3-6 years old with the questionnaire as a tool. Children were satisfied in their play and also for a greater part of them, their play influenced in their character formation. The parents took initiative in playing with the child and helped them with the creative activities. They also took the child to play with other children. The study identified the relevance of play in children both in urban area and rural area.
