Solitary play, where the child is alone and maintains this status by being focused on his or her activity.
Onlooker play, when the child watches others at play but does not engage in it. The child may engage in forms of social interaction, such as conversation about the play, without actually joining in the activity.
Parallel play, when the child plays separately from others but close to them and mimicking their actions. This type of play is seen as a transitory stage moving towards a more socially mature associative and cooperative type of play.
