Do you remember Footsie?   You put the yellow ring around your ankle and made it go in circles, jumping over the rope and bell.  It was a simple toy but fun!

"Ring a Ring o' Roses" or "Ring Around the Rosie" is a nursery rhyme or folksong and playground singing game. It first appeared in print in 1881, but it is reported that a version was already being sung to the current tune in the 1790s and similar rhymes are known from across Europe. Urban legend says the song originally described the plague, specifically the Great Plague of London, but folklorists reject this idea.
