Changing the catcode of digits is a bad idea because you are likely
to run into problems elsewhere (like in section headings etc.). The
cleanest solution is to use a small dedicated macro to call the
abbreviated version with:

  \logo [PS/2] [Play School Halved]



That takes a bit more typing, but is much safer and will work regardless
of the current catcode values.
