Amazing Interactive Fun

My 4 year old absolutely loves this app. It's so good to have a kids app focused on interactive play - the AR Masks and interactive songs are an absolute smash hit.

Fun time with the kids

Had a great time at my nephew's birthday party with the songs and masks, the kids couldn't put it down! Really fun.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

Kids are inspired to sing, dance, and get silly with this lighthearted collection of music and stories. The options for play with The Wiggles app are simple, but they utilize the augmented reality technology in a fun way. Kids will likely delight in seeing themselves as part of a music video or story. It's a disappointment that the stories option isn't available for older iPhone models, especially given that it and the songs option are the two major interactive attractions of the app. The Wiggles musical group may not be as popular in the United States as they are in Australia or Great Britain, but their music is accessible and very kid-friendly. In fact, it's so catchy that there's a word of caution for parents: Though kids will likely love the music, you may have the Wiggles repertoire stuck in your head for days after every use of the app.
