A time tested classic
2 February 1999 | by Pierre-24See all my reviews

This is basically the low budget, Australian version of Sesame Street, less the furry animals - instructional, educational entertainment for younger children - a latter day haven for parents.

Play School first appeared on our TV sets in 1967. I remember watching it as a child myself (some 30 odd years ago). Today, in 1999, my children sit and enjoy the daily reruns. Well done Play School and ABC TV, 32 years later and still being shown every day at 3:30 pm.
