JEMIMA, Big Ted, Humpty, Little Ted and Meeka are making their way to Kingaroy.

Play School's favourites have a brand new show called Humpty's Showtime and they want to share it with South Burnett kids in 2013.

The concert will have the show's fans singing, dancing and jumping for joy as they see Humpty putting on his very own show.

Little Peanuts Early Learning Centre manager Sue Miron said she would definitely try and get a group together to see the performance.

"I highly recommend parents to take their children because it's very worthwhile," she said.

"I would love to take some of the kids along if it's affordable and we get enough parents to support we will definitely go.

"Or I might even just take myself."

The 40-minute show has been specially designed to delight pre-schoolers and parents.

As with the television program, there are songs to move to, as well as quiet times to just watch and listen.

The concert features song and stories and is hosted by two Play School presenters, along with the Play School toys.

Play School is the second longest running children's television program in the English speaking world still in production.

Play School concerts began in the mid 1970s and since then the concert tours have travelled across Australia entertaining more than 100,000 people annually.

Join Humpty and his friends on May 3 at The Market Place, on the cnr Bunya Hwy and Ivins St, Kingaroy.
