We explore the possibility of creating an interactive system which can foster fantasy play in preschool children in a tabletop environment. This paper reports our experiences designing and testing two prototypes with young children aged 3-4 years old. In the first study, we focused on understanding the similarities and differences between the type of play afforded by real objects and virtual objects. In the second study, we focused on testing solutions for the interaction difficulties evinced in the first study to see how to provide an engaging experience for children. Data were collected by observing children while they played with the study materials. Both quantitative and qualitative methods were used for data collection and analysis.
