It finally happened, both my children are head over heels for The Wiggles! My daughter Melody discovered The Wiggles when she was two years old and has been enjoying all of their shows both new and old up to her current age of 4 1/2! And my son Owen, whom just turned 22 months old today has set another favorite show behind him for awhile (Yo Gabba Gabba) and has taken a real liking to The Wiggles. He loves watching, singing, and dancing along and would watch them all day long if I let him!
I’d been adding Wiggles DVD’s to my collection and must talk about one of our favorites called Hot Potatoes! The Best of The Wiggles. This particular DVD features a collection of their 35 favorite songs including “Wake Up Jeff!”, “Get Ready To Wiggle”, “The Monkey Dance” and “Rock-A-Bye Your Bear.” Each song is instantly memorable and will have children wiggling and singing in seconds…I know we were!
