This form has been designed to gage interest and solicit input for a bit of formal research about the benefits of begleri play. Over the past couple of years I have heard anecdotally from many begleri players who have told me about how begleri has helped them cope/ recover from things like addictions, anxiety, stress, PTSD, ADHD, and so on, in addition to just regular old fun and entertainment. I figured it's round about time that somebody do some organized research on this, so I'm working on designing a small study to systematically collect a bit of actual data on the matter. For those who don't know, in addition to my work with toys, I also do serious consulting work and I have a background in legitimate academic research, so I'm planning to do this right.
The study I am planning will involve a survey to collect some numerical data, as well as some interviews with individuals that have had relatively impactful experiences with begleri. The form below is NOT a formal sign up, but I'm hoping to get a sense of people's interest levels, and any input that y'all might have (especially around the kinds of benefits and positive experiences you have had with begleri). Participation will be completely confidential.
Thanks for your time,
