web site is about children's play and folklore. It
has rhymes, riddles, jokes, sayings and games which are played
by children all over the world.
information on this website has been learned from reading, watching,
listening, talking and, of course, playing. Some of the
information has come from Museum Victoria's Australian
Children's Folklore Collection and from two previous exhibitions
about children's games: 'You're IT!' in the Children's Museum
and 'Tops, Tales and Granny's False Teeth' at the Royal Children's
Hospital, Melbourne. Much of the information comes from the children
who play the games they are the experts.
