Taking a broad literature review approach, this chapter explores young children’s creativity in digital contexts, making a connection between Craft’s (2001) notion of little c creativity and young children’s possibility thinking enacted in a digital (and postdigital) world. It suggests what the concept of the posthuman possibility space may entail, and how young children’s posthuman digital play may be envisioned. Research about very young children’s play in the digital contexts of apps, the Internet of Toys, and makerspaces is briefly investigated to reveal the digital child research field as poised for the application of a posthuman lens.
