    You forgot “Crocodile, Crocodile”! Lol..
    (the game where 3-infinity people lay hands on top of the neighbor’s, palms up and then pass around a slap.)

    Hmm.. and how about “Killer Killer” and “This is a What”?
    Killer Killer: You rip pieces of paper and write roles in it: killer, judge, police, victim, spy etc. Then you roll the pices of paper and shake em up and ask the players to take one and you assume the role you get. The Killer winks to “kill” and whoever he winks at can say “I’m dead.” But Policemen when winked can arrest the Killer.. Victims just die when winked at. The Spy can announce if he/she sees who winked.. etc. LOL

    This is a What:
    You pass around things in a circle and you go like this-
    Person A: This is a pen.
    Person B: A what?
    A: A pen.
    B: A what?
    A: A pen.
    B: Oh a pen.
    B: This is a pen. A: This is a ball.
    C: A what? B: A what?
    B: A pen. A: A ball.

    …… but said really fast. Get it? XD

    Oo nga pala! Sorry. I used to play Crocodile, crocodile (so that’s what it’s called) it’s just now that I know what title it has! Thanks for the reminder, Crisel. 😀

  • 3. Caruray  |  February 28, 2007 at 12:57 am

    You forgot: Spider and the Web
    Pepsi Cola 7up
    Mother May I cross the river

  • 4. Tina  |  February 28, 2007 at 10:11 am

    Ten twenty? Haha I loved that game. 🙂 Chinese Garter too.

  • 5. Tina  |  February 28, 2007 at 10:12 am

    Ay sorry I forgot pa pala! Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar! 😀 We used to play this game with “sanglaan” pa, where whoever makes a mistake has to give up something he has with him/her.

  • 6. kidswereus  |  February 28, 2007 at 12:52 pm

    Wow…we played a lot! I’m not very familiar with Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar. Was fascinated with 10-20, Chinese jackstones & garter, and catterpillar (although that’s more of a rowdy group game)

  • 7. kristy creme and frances  |  February 28, 2007 at 1:36 pm

    what in the world is sweet violet and charge??? bakit walang “Bang!”?

  • 8. Irma  |  February 28, 2007 at 4:11 pm

    Killer killer, walang kapagod pagod. Alam nyo din ba ang “Mother Baby”? Para din shang piko, pero dalawa ang titira ng sabay. Magka partner sila. Kaung mag partner ang magdi decide kung sino ang “mother” at kung sino ang “baby”. Pag nagkamali ang baby, isi save sha ng mother, pero pag ang mother ang nagkamali, di sha pwedeng isave ng baby.

    Pepsi Cola 7 up (pepsi mirinda team ata din yan eh. Baka iisa lang sha) 😀 10-20, high jump……

  • 9. Justine  |  February 28, 2007 at 6:49 pm

    Kick-open (you know.. I wanna kick, open, side by side…)
    Sasara ang Bulaklak
    Princess Sunny Water? (did I get that right?)
    Chippy-chippy-gum (is a bubblegum, masarap ito at malinamnam…)
    Jack & Jill
    London Bridge
    Ring Around the Rosie
    Shagity-shagity (correct me if I’m wrong)
    I Wanna be a Tutubi
    Dr. Quack Quack
    Pick n’ Split
    and many more.. hahaha!

  • 10. kidswereus  |  February 28, 2007 at 6:50 pm

    Who me?
    Yes you.
    Not me.
    Then who?

    Lol.. these games I used to play more often during the school bus ride home.. hehe. Specially Killer Killer.

    BTW guys I think we’re only talking about non-running games? Like.. games we normally play just sitting or standing.. I mean as opposed to street games..

  • 16. Justine  |  February 28, 2007 at 8:20 pm

    how about down down baby??? (or is it dum dum baby??)

    It goes something like: Down down baby, dowdown the rollercoaster, sweet sweet lady, Aurora… something like that. My girl classmates used to chant that all the time

  • 20. Crisel  |  March 2, 2007 at 8:37 pm

    @ Marti: rollercoaster?? I always thought it went: “Down down baby, down down Veronica. Sweet sweet baby, wweet sweet a-lollipop…” Hahaha

  • 21. Crisel  |  March 2, 2007 at 8:38 pm

    Opps, I meant Martin, not Marti.

  • 22. kidswereus  |  March 2, 2007 at 10:35 pm

    To Crisel and Martin–yeah! that’s the game i’m thinking about…the “down down baby”! I remember seeing that one in Sesame Street. 😀

  • 23. Miko  |  March 4, 2007 at 5:49 am


    And OMG Sagidi Sagidi! Hahaha we used to play this in SENIOR YEAR.

  • 24. kidswereus  |  March 4, 2007 at 10:11 am

    Oh…and let’s add the Potato game. One potato, two potato, three potato four–five potato, six potato, seven potato…MORE!

    Mixz–oo nga, naaaalala ko ang class-wide Sagidi game natin sa covered courts! LOL. At tama… concentration is the rhythm, concentration navigation, let us begin!

  • 25. Me  |  March 5, 2007 at 5:19 pm

    Another one of them childhood games: my mother went to the eye, eye, eye; to see what to see in the eye eye eye. My mother went to the love, love, love, to see what to see in the love love love. My mother went to the you you you….and then it all ends with Eye. Love. You!

    Kumusta naman jan. LOL.

  • 26. Sam  |  March 11, 2007 at 10:02 pm

    my friends and I loved cross merry shake. Funny coincidence, a few weeks ago, we played bahay kubo (4 players) just for the heck of it. ahaha

  • 27. kidswereus  |  March 12, 2007 at 11:36 pm

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

Tia and Tamara Mowry (Sister, Sister) 6. Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone) 7. Daniella Fischer (Boy Meets World) 8. Larissa Oleynik (Alex Mack) 9. Rachel Leigh Cook […]
  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
