German to English translations [PRO]
Games / Video Games / Gaming / Casino / children's playgrounds
German term or phrase: Spielgeräte
The term comes up in a text about children's playgrounds. It refers to such things as swings, roundabouts, slides, etc. I just can't think of the appropriate collective term for such things - probably because my childhood is too far back in nthe dim and distant past. I thought of *playground furniture* but I have nagging incling that there is another, better expresion. Any kindergarten translator out there?
