If you're looking to expand the age limit for your Wiggles fan, this one is a definite keeper. Filled with songs from their Disney show, "Lights, Camera, Action!", this DVD has the added addition of the gremlins running around causing havoc on the show. I didn't find them annoying at all, but just rather cute. It's fun for older toddlers to pick out the gremlins, where they are, and what they're doing besides just sitting there and absorbing whatever is going on. I think the Wiggles are trying to reach an older audience as well, which this DVD does quite effectively. I don't think it was meant for the younger set, ages below 4, because it does involve more interaction than just music, and the kids are asked quite frequently by the Wiggles where the gremins are and what they're doing. They're first asked what is going on and if the kids actually see something. It's an on-screen game of hide-n-seek for the viewer which makes it much more interactive than regular videos.
Captain Feathersword is back and takes over a good portion of the video in the beginning while we are all waiting for the Wiggles to come in. He's up to his usual antics, but they are magnified because of a gremlin causing problems with everything he tries to do. He's pretty funny but very engaging which makes the kids watch and try to figure out what he's doing.
When the Wiggles finally do arrive, they sing many of the songs on their regular TV show, which are very good, in our opinion. In "Gulp, Gulp. Drink Some Water," the cinematography needs improving - Anthony's left side of his head is cut off in many places and when they're singing another song, the Wiggles' eyes are not on the camera but they are looking up at something. It just makes you think the camera was supposed to be upward or something. Plus, Greg's vocals were not plugged in at the final production properly on some songs, which makes his mouth move at the wrong time in some places. Not much to worry about unless you're in the music biz like we are, but it is there nonetheless.
One highlight of this video is that the Wiggles are doing more dancing as in their previous years. Greg's adaptability as a musician comes out here as you see him cover up the others' mistakes at times in his dancing. Ever seen the video of "We're Dancing with Wags the Dog?" He covers up a huge mistake Anthony and Wags made in that one. I'm not sure why another reviewer didn't think Greg can dance - he is the best of all of them and covers up so many other mistakes all the time. When you know music, however, you see those things more than just if you watch it briefly. There's just more ability there than what we get to see on a normal basis with the Wiggles.
All-in-all, I really recommend this one. It's just a different format and more engaging for the older ones. As musicians, these guys are really something and I wonder what they would be doing if they weren't doing this. We sincerely appreciate them in our house - my little one is glued to the TV when this one comes on. It's a great find and a neat keepsake too. We plan on keeping all of our Wiggles items. They've made such a huge difference in our little one's life education-wise.
