The Role of Toys and Games in an Ecological Approach to Motive Development
Once upon a time, Professor Heckhausen said to me, “We are always claiming that the toys a child has at his/her disposal have an effect on the development of the achievement motive and its interindividual differences (Heck-hausen, 1963 a, 1966, 1972; McClelland, Atkinson, Clark, & Lowell, 1953). Up until now though, there is very little empirical evidence to support this claim. Examine the relationship between the type and amount of toys and other learning materials in the home environment and the form of the achievement motive in children.”
