ABC2 4kids is first choice programming on our TV, any time of day. It goes on when the kids are eating their breakfast of a morning, and at the end, the girls always watch Shaun the sheep with their dad.
Our telly has been on this channel, everyday for the last five years. I don't see anything wrong with that. In fact, I think the kids have learnt and benefitted from it, helping their speech and imagination.
They have always loved watching Play school, and I loved it too when I was a kid. I can't remember a time when it wasn't on the telly.
I am not ashamed to say, I may have developed a crush on Alex Papps, and several other male hosts of playschool over the years. I remember, back in the day, he had a show with Andrew Daddo, called The Factory. I guess I never got over my teenage crush from back then.
The Factory filled the void after Countdown ceased. All I can remember from that show is that Andrew Daddo had two dogs called Fug and Benji, and that I was totes crushing on him and Alex.
Did you know Andrew Daddo went on to write children's books? A lot of children's books!
I digress....Back to playschool. Starting today, Eddie Perfect is joining the cast. I can see another mummy crush sweeping the screens tomorrow. I know I will be watching to see how he goes.
Did you ever have a kids tv host crush?
