Sex differences in the play equipment available at Australian children’s homes


Different combinations of play equipment are associated with children's physical activity levels. While there is evidence that girls and boys have different activity preferences and choice in games, no studies have investigated whether sex differences exist in the play equipment that children have at home. The aim of this study is to investigate differences between the play equipment that boys and girls have at home. This could be useful for future interventions aimed at increasing children's physical activity levels.
