Objective: to identify the knowledge and use of the technique by nurses in the care of a child with chronic illness. Methodology: this is an exploratory and descriptive study whose participants were seven nurses of the pediatric clinic of a public hospital in João Pessoa, Paraiba, Brazil, who answered a semi-structured interview. The data analyses were carried out in three stages: ordination, classification, and analysis, where four thematic nucleuses were identified: 1) knowledge of the therapeutic toy technique; 2) use of therapeutic toy; 3) evaluation of the technique put into practice; and 4) pointing out the local work process and changes in clinical practice. Results: it was found that the technique is not systematically used in the care of hospitalized children, yet, although it is known among nursing professionals. Conclusion: it was concluded that there is a need for changes, firstly in professional training, and, subsequently, in the institution's organizational structure, in search of a better care of the child patients.
