Tracey Lee Smythe,
Play School is an Australian Gold Logie award-winning educational television show for children produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It is the longest-running children's show in Australia, and the second-longest-running children's show in the world. An estimated 80% of pre-school children under six watch the programme at least once a week.
There's a bear in there, and a chair as well. There are people with games! And stories to tell! Open wide! Come inside! It's Play School!
Ah, yes, "Play School". I had long forgotten this excellent children's show until I recently read Merridy Eastman's book (who was a "Play School" presenter in the '80's) "There's a Bear in There (And he wants Swedish)", and it all came flooding back to me.
Anyhoo, "Play School" is definitely one of the more better children's shows in terms of its educational value, sense of fun and memorable theme songs. Unlike many other educational children's television shows, "Play School" is bearable for older people (That is, parents and older siblings) to watch with youngsters. Granted that "Play School" could be just another hyperactive, over-the-top and God awful children's show (That is, "Barney"), "Play School is simple, good, clean fun and it isn't migraine inducing.
I'd also like to note that I'm pretty amazed that "Play School" has been still going for almost a century now, but still manages to stay fresh. Well done to "Play School".
So, to conclude, "Play School" is a great, clean and fun show that I'd highly recommend for parents to let their youngsters watch.
