I have to respond to this question in 200 words or more.
What might happen when a boy plays with action figure dolls? How does this behavior fit into theories of development?
I am studying Jean Piaget's theory of development so I am assuming I am supposed to answer this question based on his theory.

    Here are a number of sites on Piaget's theories of play and the use of action figures.
