Time to rock the Play School

There's a bear in there...

Even those like me, who did not grow up in Australia, relate to that song and the wonderful TV program that is Play School.

The program tells my kids it's OK to grab a cardboard box and turn it into a spaceship just using their imagination, or some paint.

It also helps me to get in a playful mood to spend some quality time with them.

Play School is one of the few TV programs that offers some quality education and entertainment while not asking me to buy the latest toys for my children.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic children's television show, Triple J Unearthed are offering the public the chance to remix the Play School theme song, There's a Bear in There.
