The data comprise transcribed interviews of seven pre-school aged children and their drawings. The interviews were conducted in a day nursery located in the Pirkanmaa region. The interviews charted what the children liked and disliked about their day nursery, what kind of games they played and with whom, why they played with certain children, and whether bullying occurred in the day nursery. The participants were also requested to draw a picture of a game they played with other children, and they were asked which game it was and who they played it with.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
