Format: VHS Tape
Playdays broadends the minds of children as it introduces all of the colours of the world, and the animals personified such as "Why Bird". The use of a rhetorical question "Where will is stop?" leaves the viewer in suspense and anticipation, of where in the fabricated world, they will explore today. The way in which the enthnical diverse character of the puppet doll, is given authority (through the way in which she sings) acts as a beautiful celebration of all different races of the world, instilling in young viewers a tolerant and well-rounded view of the world. The different seetings and locations not only maintain viewer's interst (because not every show is the same)illustrates the class diversities present in modern society e.g. Why Bird on her computer - middle class, compared to Peggy Patch - lower class, who has merely has a few pegs to keep her occupied. The theme tune and the animation of the opening sequence are highly entertaining, and signal to the impressionabal child audience that the show is about to start. This video is a good one - to a point- watch it!

"Days by the Sea" is the video companion to "Days on the Move" and deserves the same credit. Why Bird yet again is the joyful puppet parrot who explains about the seaside and the sea. Lizzie sings songs like "Lazy Bones" and the video shows the everyday life of lighthouse men. This is a certainly great companion to the other Playdays classic "Days on the move."

I remember, not so long ago, watching this as a child every day... why they ever discontinued it is a mystery to me, it is much better than the tweeties/tellietubbies ever could be!!
The graphics and puppets, watching back, are not very realistic, but as a child i truly never noticed it. I once even saw it being filmed, and it didn't spoil it for me.
Playdays is pure gold which every generation should enjoy.

This excellent sing-a-long children's video cassette bring magic and excitement to its junior viewers, educating them on how perform everyday tasks as such as brushing their teeth where Lizzie uses the lively, Toothbrush Shuffle. Lizzie's unobvious puppet strings enchant young children bringing them into the make-believe however realistic world of Lizzie, the all-singing, all-dancing puppet!!!

Playdays has moved on since the days when this children's learning video came out and for those who still love the old Playdays and would like your child to learn about numbers at an early age, this is the video for you. Dot tells different stories about numbers, along with games and songs. Various things to make such as the "three little pigs" masks are also great to watch. Dot and her partner (Mr.Domino) make learning so much fun for the younger generation as you expierience the great way for toddlers to learn the numbers from 1 - 10. The only down side to this video is that some of the classic characters such as Peggy Patch, Why Bird and Poppy the Cat aren't featured. Overall, a great children's video.
