This study is the result of an investigation of how ludic aspects are shown in the everyday context of a child and caretakers/family members from low income classes. The purpose of the study was to investigate children's favorite toys and games, the time, spaces and favorite companions, as well as their family members view, through structured interviews. Forty children from 7 to 10 years of age were chosen at random at two public schools in the city of Caxias do Sul. The results indicate the protective and risky aspects. The conclusions point to a need for new observation researches of the interaction among children and their families in loc, and the possibility of offering structured programs in public schools in order to add benefits to these interactions with ludic approaches.
