Those who grew up in Australia in the recent past will no doubt be familiar with the first line of this song. The song is the opening tune for Playschool shown on ABC television.
The programme is still showing today all be it with different presenters. I have many happy memories of watching Playschool with my kids.
This year is the 50th anniversary of Playschool and there was an exhibition at the National Museum. It was lovely to see some of the memorabilia from the show and to relive some of the moments.
The rocket clock shown before the story telling.
The flower clock, I can’t remember if it was before or after the rocket clock came into being.
Here are just some of the presenters, my favourites were John Hamblin and Noni Hazelhurst. It is great to see that this show still has a loyal following today.
Jemimah is the rag doll in Playschool and she has had clothing for all occasions.
I made each of my children a doll like Jemimah. The first one was Jemimah and the other two were Josephine and Jeremy. My latest granddaughter’s doll is called Jasmine.
My granddaughter knew what to do with this part of the exhibition.
No Playschool would be complete without Bananas in Pyjamas.
Are you someone who has watched Playschool either as a parent, grandparent or child?
