    This classic show’s a favourite in our home,
    We’d love to make memories of our own.

    Awestruck is what my daughter would be.
    Thank you Mum Central for the chance to win,
    To let our Playschool adventure begin.

  29. A great combination of play, interaction and education needed for youngsters from a very early age. It is the first TV program I allowed any of my babies watch. Initially they were just attracted to the music and colours. I have never used it as a baby sitting tool.

  30. Kids would lover to sing along and dance , great fun and entertainment.

    It’s wonderful to see my favourite childhood show transcending generations to teach and entertain my own children. I would love to take my toddlers to see playschool live: we would all relate to it’s unique Australian style and heritage, not to mention have a fantastic educational time!

  51. Kellie King Reply

    I remember going to a playschool concert when I was younger… from memory I think I was a little too old for the concert, but probs secretly enjoyed it. My favorite playschool memory is arguing with my siblings over which window it was going to be on that day, and then getting to do a victory dance when you picked right.. I have kept this tradition alive with my children, and when they win, its equally as annoying as it was when my younger siblings won!! aahhhh the memories.

  52. Shaleah Campbell Reply

    I always wanted to go to a Playschool concert as a child! Now I have that chance and to give my boys the experience I never had and always dreamed of <3
