Recycle, reuse Bananas in Pyjamas


Bananas in Pyjamas have been a feature of Australian television for many, many years. I think the song was first heard around 1972.  If you haven’t heard of them, here is the original stair descent on Play School on ABC television.

Since that time the bananas have had a series of their own and a stage show as well.

Bananas in pyjamas.  Her delight at having these pyjamas is obvious.  The photo reminded me of Christmas when her elder sisters wore the same pyjamas several years ago.  Apparently the pyjamas have been passed on to the cousins and then they came back again when our granddaughter was the size for wearing them.

There was B1 and B2 .

      I think Playschool formed such a part of most Australian families.

      I think it is lovely how something my children loved to watch can still be watched by my grandchildren.

    Such a great song, thank you. 🙂 I’d be chuffed with pyjamas like that, too.
