Abstract: An attempt is made in this review to sketch a possible integration of Vygotsky’s ideas about play and imagination on the one hand and his ontogenetic framework on the other. He was not able to realize the goal of developing a theory of play together with D. B. El’konin, but his lecture plan and lecture notes include several hints about the potential of play and imagination in human ontogenesis. Among these are play’s role in the development of self-regulation and consciousness. The concept of the zone of proximal development in play has a special value. Vygotsky aimed to develop a comprehensive concept and elaborated it in two contexts. The play context has more potential in attaining this goal. Elaborating a comprehensive theory of play based on Vygotsky’s methodological principles still represents great challenges for researchers. Play is an important activity type in which essential qualitative changes (metamorphoses) in ontogenesis take place. Some of these are explained in the review
