Thanks for all the info on rope jumping. I remember as a child of late 40’s St. Louis, Missouri, jumping rope for hours on the school playground. My families move to Los Angeles in 1951 ended my jumproping days. The kids in LA were too sophisticated, I guess. It was great seeing the rhymes again. I know there were many more and so much fun! There has been a book printed about the subject. Guess I’ll have to look for it now, for my 1/2 Chinese grandaughter. She’ll love learning the rhymes as I did.
