A form of entertainment that uses social interaction, such as playing a game or watching a show, to entertain a group. It may also involve activities that stimulate the brain and release seratonin, dopamine, and other chemicals. In addition, it can promote physical activity or prepare individuals for more advanced activities.
Children’s entertainment often mimics adult activities, such as watching performances; it develops skills, such as motor skills needed for sports and music; and it provides an escape from daily routines. It can also provide a source of enjoyment and pleasure for those who are socially isolated, such as the elderly.
