What happens when a bunch of precocious kids get their hands on an atomic chemistry set? They learn how to make atomic sweeties, of course! Mischief soon follows when their little enterprise goes global, despite the interference of a suspicious local detective.

Child’s Play was the only children's film to be produced by the short-lived production company Group 3, run by documentary-giant John Grierson and director John Baxter. Digitisation supported by The Mohamed S. Farsi Foundation
