"Anything can happen in a special world...in the Wiggles world."

The Wiggles, a group from Australia, are charming preschoolers everywhere. This boy band for the preschool crowd wiggle and dance their way into children's hearts on their new video, Wiggly, Wiggly World!

Greg, Murray, Jeff, and Anthony each wear a different color shirt and put on a dance show like no other. This 46-minute video features more than a dozen song-videos featuring the group as well as children and characters in costume--Wags the Dog, Dorothy Dinosaur, the Captain (who tickles everyone with his colorful feather), and Henry the Octopus. Children help demonstrate the actions that accompany the songs, and inspire viewers to do them too!

A special "mate", Slim Dusty, guest stars with a country ditty called "I Love to Dance With Dorothy"; Christine Anu also makes an appearance with a special song, "Taba Naba"; and Atsuko Arai, from Japan, sings "Haru Ga Kita". The special guests help add an international flavor to the video. 

The Wiggles take a ride in a "big, red car" through the countryside, where they meet up with a scarecrow, cow, and kangaroo (all people in costume). They do a wonderful rendition (Wiggles-style) of "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" along with Tim Finn, and explore animal sounds in "One Little Coyote".

Pros:
  • Infectious fun and dance.
  • Engaging video that inspires children to sing, act, and dance along.

 

Cons:
  • Fun, but not as educational as many videos designed for preschoolers.
