Art/Literary - Folklore / Austrian fairy tales
German term or phrase: Kinderspruch
This is from the bibliographical information for the collection of Austrian fairy tales. I gather from the web that it means something like "the things kids say" but is there a more technical term for that in English?

Seine Heimatstadt Ödenburg war noch zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts ein wichtiges nördliches Siedlungsgebiet der sogenannten "Heanzen" und wies bis zur Aussiedlung der Deutschen aus Westungarn enge kulturelle Verbindungen (besonders in Volksbrauch, Mundart, Lied und **Kinderspruch**) zum heutigen Burgenland auf."
