 Study Finds Traditional School Playground Games Still Popular Among Current Generation Kids

Some of the traditional games, such as hopscotch and skipping, played by school children more than 30 years ago are still popular among the current generation of kids.

Just like the generation 30 years before, 21st century kids like trading football stickers and playing 'What's The Time Mr Wolf,' according to the poll of 2,000 British parents.

The study by collectors' card group Topps Match Attax found that many traditions have enduring appeal, the Daily express reported.

Those out of favour - such as conkers or British Bulldog - have not been helped by school rule changes banning more robust games.

Seven out of ten parents said their child looked forward to play times at school.

"Parents will love the fact that their children are playing the same games, as it will remind them of the fun they had when they were at school and they can show an active interest in what their children are doing," Sponsors' spokesman Rod Pearson said.
