Puzzle Play was an Australian pre-school themed TV show for young kids. It aired Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 9:00 am on Network Ten. The program premiered on 21 December 2006 replacing the program In the Box. The hosts were Kellyn Morris, Liam Nunan and Patrick MacDonald. There was also Cassie (voiced by Kristen Souvlis) which was a computer with a female voice and Penny, a cartoon bus-like vehicle that took the hosts to various locations. Penny makes a beeping sound. The plot involved Cassie presenting a 4-piece puzzle with a shape on each piece. As the show continued, a clue was shown for each piece. Each clue was usually a video with a host narrating about the shape with information about it. The hosts visited schools, preschools, kindergartens and parks. As the pieces were being removed, a picture was revealed in the background and in the end the 3 hosts guessed what the picture was about. All the pieces were related to final picture.

Famous quotes containing the words play and/or puzzle:
“It is among the ranks of school-age children, those six- to twelve-year-olds who once avidly filled their free moments with childhood play, that the greatest change is evident. In the place of traditional, sometimes ancient childhood games that were still popular a generation ago, in the place of fantasy and make- believe play . . . todays children have substituted television viewing and, most recently, video games.”
—Marie Winn (20th century)
“What are you now? If we could touch one another,
if these our separate entities could come to grips,
clenched like a Chinese puzzle . . . yesterday
I stood in a crowded street that was live with people,
and no one spoke a word, and the morning shone.
Everyone silent, moving. . . . Take my hand. Speak to me.”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
