French term or phrase: jeu de foulards
Hello

I am currently translating a brochure for a company who selll educational toys/equipment, and also motor skills toys/equipment.

So far, 500,000 words in, everything has been fine and made sense, until I come across this sentence: Livré démonté avec des tapis et un jeu de foulards.

The latter term has me confused as I know that this game is basically a playground strangling game, and it doesn't fit with the context of the remainder of the text.

Can anyone shed any light please?

I did consider dress up material, but it's not right either as preceding sentences in the ST are similar to this one: Tout en s'amusant, les enfants vont développer leurs aptitudes physiques en grimpant, rampant, glissant, sautant...et leur coordination.

The game they are describing is a climbing game for young children.

Many thanks in advance
