Excellent Viewing for the Kids
15 November 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Play School, an Australian institution, is a great way for children to sit and watch Australian based learning. Each episode follows a time-tested formula, that, even the old episodes are as watchable now as they were 50 years ago.

Play School has had many famous Australian faces present it over the years, as well as many well-loved Play School presenters that children remember into their adulthood, who become almost an institution themselves.

Each episode has songs, dancing, a story, the name of the day, and usually feature a short video clip through the window. Those who grew up with Play School will have their favourite window (arch, circle, square, diamond), and the children will always want their favourite one to be used as Play School presents clip from outside.

The presenters are entirely real, and their enthusiasm is clearly shown through in each episode. Children respond well, as the presenters talk straight down the camera, and lead the kids through crafts, songs, and dance, and using their imagination.

My children still play games they learned from Play School, and I've taught them songs I learned from my time watching Play School growing up. This is Australian talent at it's absolute finest. Each episode is raw, and presented as real. Indeed, the filming for each episode is done in pretty much one take, which just adds to the overall ambiance of the episode.

Play School is the most Australian show. Perfect for the kids to watch, anytime!
