The Wiggles: Wiggle Time
Hey kids, what time is for? It's WIGGLE TIME! From way "down under" comes the #1 children's entertainment name in Australia - THE WIGGLES! Murray, Jeff, Anthony and Greg are ready to teach your kids how to "Rock-A-Buy Your Bear" and "Love It When it Rains." Children will also laugh at Dorothy, henry and Captain Feathersword as they sing and swing in their own groovy music videos. With millions of videos and audio cassettes sold in Australia, now is the time to introduce your children to this hilariously happy "down under" world of musical enchantment. Join the worldwide celebration - get ready to WIGGLE!
The Wiggles are Australia's hottest children's entertainment and it's easy to see why. This 40-minute video is packed with 16 fun songs that make children want to dance and, yes, wiggle. Greg Page, the main vocalist, has a pleasing, folksy voice reminiscent of Canada's Raffi. Murray Cook and Anthony Field accompany on guitar, Jeff Fatt accompanies on accordion and keyboard, and all three dance, wiggle, and teach kids song-specific movements and lyrics. The songs themselves have imaginative lyrics and catchy melodies, a fact that hints at Anthony, Murray, and Greg's backgrounds in early childhood education. Costarring with this foursome are four lovable, costumed characters: Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Henry the Octopus, and Wags the Dog. The majority of the video features Greg, Murray, Anthony, and Jeff on uncluttered sets with simple background props that set the mood without distracting viewers from the musical experience. The latter portion of the video features several live performances ("Wags the Dog," "Five Little Ducks," "Wiggly Medley") from The Wiggles Big Show. The tour brought the foursome to America in 1999. This award-winning group from Australia provides a fun, interactive musical experience for kids ages 1 to 6. --Tami HoriuchiSee all Product Description

Singing and dancing is the name of the game here. The dancing is sometimes clumsy but the steps are easy enough for young kids to follow along. Some of the singing is atrocious. But this is not aimed at me. The songs are short, fun, and infuriatingly catchy. I keep singing them at home!
I have watched it several times through and even got my daughter to reconsider (even though she is a bigger fan of Andre Rieu, The Royal Ballet, and Angelina Ballerina).
I have to say that while the studio performances could be better, the end segment from their live stage show exhibits greater talent (shouldn't it be the other way around).
My personal favorite on the show is Dorothy the Dinosaur (she is also the best dancer) and I do find Jeff to be rather odd looking (sometimes creepy). But all in all, the show captivates my children and the music is catchy. What more could a parent want?
She adores their music (kids always seem to love anything that's a little bit rock n' roll!), but it's not enough to just sit there and watch it--she MAKES us get up and dance! If you're not standing, she's in front of you, tugging on your clothes until you join in. Other kids shows say "Hey kids, let's get up and move!" with very little effect on my daughter (who enjoys watching them, but isn't moved to stand up and imitate them most of the time). I can't really describe what it is about these four guys and their silly songs that makes it so addictive, but as my husband said, it's hard to say no to them! Subliminal messages? Maybe!
I HIGHLY recommend the Wiggles in this video (or any of the others) to parents like me who may want to get into shape, but don't have time for the gym or money for a lot of exercise equipment. What we have here is almost an aerobics class, which everyone can enjoy. Forget "Sweatin' to the Oldies"! Try some of the simple Wiggle movements! The jumps, hand claps, "hot potato" movement, etc. may look simple, but try doing what Murray, Greg, Jeff, and Anthony do for ONE minute and you'll see--it really takes your breath away! I became convinced after imitating them for a few minutes that these guys are in terrific shape. I also became determined that if they can do it, I can do it--so our family (well, at least my oldest daughter and I) works out with the Wiggles two or three times a day! P>Warning: If you're addicted to the Wiggles--a true Wigglemaniac, you may start wondering why EVERYONE isn't wearing a Wiggles Star-Trek-esque outfit and going around with "Fruit Salad, Yummy, Yummy" in their heads.
