Entertaiment is the act of entertaining. It also refers to something that affords pleasure, diversion, or amusement, such as a play or the daily crossword puzzle. Children’s entertainment often mimics adult activities, such as watching performances or rearing dolls; prepares them for adult responsibilities such as child rearing and social interaction (through group games and play); or develops skills like motor skills needed for sports and music.
Entertaiment is abbreviated to entmt. on fliers and in industry news publications where space is limited. It is also commonly used in short hand note taking. Entertainment hits on the deep points of the human brain, wich are evolved to react to in a very personal way.
