Show Summary

At the top of a ten-storey tower block, presenters Chris and Pui await in a beautiful, bright playroom. All children need to do for a magical play date is enter the lift, press the button, count the floors and begin a musical journey to the top floor.

There they’ll find a place alive with vibrant colours and amazing decor, twinkling fairy lights, mysterious tunnels, a gigantic tea cup and a magical green tree. It’s a very special place for stories, adventures and discovering the world – and who knows who will be the next arrival in the lift!

But what sort of playroom would it be without any toys? Chris and Pui’s pals include Mo Mo Bot the robot, Stuffy the squishy cube, Toddler Tom the felt doll, little knitted Miss Mouse and Teddington the teddy bear – all waiting to play with viewers in the playroom and go out to explore the real world in a series of gentle adventures. Viewers at home can bring along their favourite toys as they watch and discover with Chris and Pui.

In each episode, Chris and Pui explore two different themes, using everyday objects and ideas to go on an adventure. There is also an animated story in each episode about Penelope, a blue koala, following her as she goes to school and does everyday things at home.
