A Russian adaptation of a hugely popular game show Child’s Play. In the show adult contestants try to guess words based on definitions given by children. Which can be a daunting task when a child says something like “It’s when you run around and wave your arms back and forth" to describe "arms race".

The show first aired in Russia in 1992. It won a Golden Ostap as The Best Entertainment TV show and has numerous TEFI nominations.
