In a domestic garden, a boy plays ball with his mother. Two boys play with a toy car. On a visit to Brighton beach, they eat ice cream on the beach. At Peter Pan's playground in Brighton they play on the merry-go-round and toy train ride. They then go paddling in the sea. At a birthday party, four year old Steven has a birthday cake in the shape of a train. The day includes a tea party in the garden. The boys play with toys, and the children play on the swings; with a toy wheelbarrow; a train; a toy crane, and blow bubbles.
