The Loose Parts concept in children's play has long been acknowledged as a versatile and potent framework for nurturing creativity, problem-solving abilities, and comprehensive development. In today's educational settings, this approach has evolved to encompass digital play, reflecting the integration of technology into children's everyday lives. In this literature review, we delve into the multifaceted aspects of Loose Parts in children's play, which now includes digital play, examining the evolving landscape of play materials, tools, and technologies available to young learners. Additionally, it can facilitate inventive learning experiences and assist educators in establishing vibrant and engaging learning environments in digital play. This review adds to the ongoing discourse regarding the convergence of technology, play, and childhood development, offering valuable insights to educators and researchers aiming to harness the full potential of digital play within the framework of loose parts.
