Child's Play was a game show airing daytime on CBS.

Two contestants competed to identify words being defined on tape by children aged five to nine. Three children give their definition, and contestants ring in to answer. Round two, "Fast Play," had contestants trying to identify as many defined words as possible before time gave out.

The top scorer played "Triple Play" for $5000. In 45 seconds, the contestant had to identify three words from written definitions. Later, the bonus game became "Turnabout," with the contestant defining words for a dias of five children to identify.
