    Playground Equipment

    My understanding is that:
    качели - covers swings, seesaws, and teeter-totters
    оборудование для лазания or перекладинам - monkey bars
    горка - slide
    карусель - merry-go-round
    свинг - swing
    детская игра 'классики' - hopscotch

    догонялки or салочки - both mean tag

    Are these correct and are their any other terms associated with playground equipment or games?
    Would follow-the-leader be
    следуйте за лидером
    I'm guessing that there are some games and equipment common to both the USA and Russia, but there are probably some unique to each country.
    Help!!! Thanks!!!

    Горки were forgotten!

    Never heard of swing thing.
    Свинг, лидер - were impossible words in my childhood, but much time has passed so who knows...
    Looks like 100% of children study English nowadays.

    Games should be mostly the same, I think. Can you recognize these ones:
    Цепи - Игра "Цепи-цепи кованые" | УМНЫЙ
    Кашевары -
    Съедобное-несъедобное -
    Колечко-колечко - Дворовые Энциклопедия нашего детства

    "свинг - swing"

    This word then sounds the same as the English word. I never heard it used in Russian, though.
