Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement: a play, concert, or party.
In children, entertainment often takes the form of playing games and social interaction with other people (through dolls, pets, group activities or sports). It may also involve mimicking adult behaviour, such as watching performances and watching television; or it may help them to develop skills, such as motor skills needed for music, dance and sport. Historically, entertainment has taken the form of storytelling and improvisational comedy. The story of Scheherazade, for example, has inspired several orchestral works by composers, a film and innovative video games. It is also used as a tool for attaining perception and highbrow growth.
