    Yeah, looks like you figured it out already. Postman sounds right, if it fits the context you saw it in. I can't think of any other alternatives. When I type just the first five kana "ゆうびんや" in Google Japanese Input, the top auto-complete suggestion is 郵便やさん.

    Not sure it fits the context but I can't see anything else. I read it on that page http://amamori.exblog.jp/5658930/

    Ok it makes sense, I'm not familiar with jump-rope LOL OTL

    It was really easy after all, I embarrassed myself *crawls under a rock*

    Oh! That's pretty interesting. Watching that video makes me wish I could remember what we used to sing here in England when we did long rope during breaktime in primary school. I think it was something in a similar to that song, at least the style of it.

    By the way, do you guys call it a "jump rope" in Canada? I vaguely think I've heard that term used in American speech before (probably from cartoons I guess). Here we call it a "skipping rope".

    Oh wait, I think I remember that what kids sang here was just something along the lines of "{something something something..} how many friends does X have.. 1.. 2.. 3.." and other made-up-on-the-spot stuff like that. Not any kind of organised song.

    I guess it could never have been the same song anyway, as we didn't have to touch the ground with our hands after each jump unlike the Japanese song requires.

    Well I'm a French speaker so I don't really know how they call it in English, there is very little English speakers around :/ Hm... according to the English version of one of our online store, we say jump rope. I think we had the same song, with how many friends someone had, I was more playing with marbles at the time so I didn't pay attention, we had one talking about ice cream, limonade and betrothed.
