A Concert Not To Be Missed
Why on earth did the window of the day ever captivate us? Who knows why, but it did and has done so in so many families for decades. In our house we used to have a competition about weather it'd be the square or round window today. This simple little segment was all part of the writer's tricks to teach children some basics while enjoying good old fashioned preschooler entertainment.
At the time I never really thought about all the educational advantages but now I appreciate the effort put into teaching colours, vocab, shapes etc. Despite the Apps now available for these there's something about the timelessness of this favourite children's television show that endears audiences far and wide.
Play School is the longest-running children's show in Australia, and the second longest running children's show in the big wide world and it's about to come to Brisbane.
The show is hosted by Play School presenters and the real stars of the show - the toys. Your children will no doubt be thrilled to see Big Ted, Little Ted, Jemima, and Humpty. Forget Katy Perry, the fans at the Playschool concert make more noise than any at a big people's concert.
The show is only 40 minutes, which is about perfect for the age of the audience. Nevertheless it can hype up any restless preschooler so don't take lollies.
If you have been to a Play school concert before don't reject it. Ask the little audience members if they'd like to go again. They are great value and this is a brand new live concert full of songs, stories and games. There's sure to be some favourites as well.
