A technology–augmented toy or a working laptop or computer application that signs the child’s development or good fortune by way of triggering the toy’s activities additionally might have transparency. Conversely, a toy or different play item that calls for broad assistance or education that allows you to play with it properly could have much less transparency. in fact, transparency additionally differs when it comes to the age and adventure of the participant in view that older or more matured gamers could realize transparency in additional tricky puzzles or games. Papert (1980) has indicated that perceiving the actual affordances of gadgets can result in the construction of psychological schemes or versions that elevate the transparency and expand it to different domain names of figuring out. that's, extra complicated gadgets can develop into obvious if the participant already has psychological schemes that may be regarding that item. Carr’s moment criterion, problem, comprises having affordances that raise the variety of chances for motion instead of narrowing the choices to simply a number of activities. a few play fabrics, reminiscent of blocks and sand, have huge percentages for activities in order that they are excessive in problem. A technology-augmented toy that calls for just one form of response or interplay might have little problem, yet one who invitations many interplay percentages may have larger problem. for instance, a toy that makes a similar sound at any time when one function is pressed and that has no different manipulative units could have low problem, but when it makes a couple of sounds that require assorted responses via the kid, it's going to have better problem, particularly if diverse activities have been required to supply every one sound.
