Sažetak
This study examined the differences in current and ideal body size among 108 Japanese and 129 Croatian preschool children (M = 4.9 yr). Boys and girls in both samples showed similarities by selecting the figure representing their current body size. Significant sex differences were found in selection of an ideal figure in the Japanese sample, but not in the Croatian. Japanese girls showed greater preference for a thinner figure than boys. In selection of an ideal body size significant cultural differences were found only for boys: Japanese boys preferred thinner figures. Results relating to body discrepancy (Current minus Ideal figures) indicated that there were less satisfied Japanese girls then Croatian whereas for the boys, a significantly frequency of Japanese than Croatian wished to be heavier.
