I am from Flushing Queens, where we would usually buy Pensie Pinkies and Spaldeens from Joe’s, which was the nearest candy store. Sometimes when I had no money, I ‘d swipe a Pensie from my sister, who, along with her friends, used them mostly in an activity that involved keeping the ball in bounce while reciting different rhymes that were punctuated by passing their legs over the ball before it would bounce back up. I lived on a hill where many of these balls ended up in the sewer at the end of the block. You could retrieve them using a garden rake, but if they remained in the water too long, they almost certainly went dead. We used to play stick ball, box ball, Chinese handball, catch a fly and you’re up, and many, many more games using them. As I recall, the favored brand for stickball at least, was Spalding, but I never observed too much difference between the two.

Looking at the spanish list and the first game is exactly the same as a english traditional game called oranges and lemons, with the rhyme being all about the bells around london and the capture including a threat to chop of your head, you the choose secretly betwen oranges and lemon, join the appropriate line and end with a tug of war exactly the same as on your site. I wonder which country first played this and if they use the same tune?
Does anyone remember the little back rhymes that some people used to do? My girls are learning “Criss Cross” (draw “X” on partner’s back) Apple Sauce (rub hands down back, palms open) Spiders crawling up your back (Crawl fingers up) Don’t sneeze (finger under partner’s nose) Cold knees (tickle partner’s knees) Now you got the shiver-ies! (tickle partner’s neck) Anyone know any others?
