In children’s games, every child wants to have an active role in the games which he or she is included in. However, most of the time it is not enough to have a desire for taking an active role, and the roles are given out by means of a process of selection. As the nearly unchanging basic player of traditional Turkish Children’s games “it” is the player who has sometimes an active role and sometimes passive, it is the role sometimes wanted to be taken; but sometimes it turns out to be the unwanted one. In this study, it has been tried to explain through examples what kind of a player “IT” is.
