Tested and supported the hypotheses that there is "no difference between a seen-and-handled condition and a seen-only condition when the visual objects are attention getting in themselves" by asking 20 preschoolers to remember objects: (a) seen only, and (b) seen and handled. It is concluded that the advantages for b are "important only for stimuli that are not very interesting visually." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
