About Play School:
Play School began production on 18 July 1966 and is the longest running children's show in Australia, and the second longest running children's show worldwide. An estimated 80% of pre-school children under six watch the programme at least once a week. The program celebrated 50 years of broadcasting in 2016. Many of the presenters have remained (or remain) with the series for lengthy periods, including musician Don Spencer (31 years), Benita Collings (30 years), John Hamblin (29 years), Alister Smart, (25 years), Noni Hazlehurst (23 years), Simon Burke (21 years) and more recently Karen Pang (21 years), Rhys Muldoon (20 years) and Justine Clarke (20 years). While the show is written by preschool education experts, the presenters are all trained actors or musicians who can connect well with the target audience. Some of the most recognisable Toys from Play School are Jemima, Big Ted, Little Ted and Humpty. Recent additions to Play Schools regular toys include Joey, a toy kangaroo introduced during the 50th anniversary and Kiya, an Aboriginal doll was introduced in 2019.
