German term or phrase: Spieler
Descriptions for a clothing seller's website. Specifically baby clothes:

Er begleitet Dich auf soften Babyshirts und Jäckchen, tollt über kuschelige Strampelhosen und Spieler und ist auch auf Baby Mützchen und Halstuch dabei, um Dich zu behüten.

The 'Er' refers to a playful raccoon embroidered on the clothing which will discover the world along with the newborn baby.

Does 'Spieler' simply mean 'play clothes'? As in clothes specifically for playing in? I'm not sure what else it could refer to, but I'd appreciate a second opinion!

(Meanwhile your strampelhose are *just* the trousers, so hopefully shouldn't pose a problem)
