What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is an energetic CD that really encourages kids to get up and move. There's a song about Noah's Ark that mentions "The Lord" a few times, and one song with a giggle-inducing, drawn out burp sound.

What's the story?

The fabulous foursome from Down Under has jumped into the jungle on their latest adventure, THE WIGGLES GO BANANAS! This 26-track CD features guest appearances from fellow Aussies Kylie Minogue ("Monkey Man") and John Waters ("Rusty the Cowboy"), and Irishman Morgan Crawley. Go Bananas! gives your kids a chance to take a tour through the jungle with The Wiggles and act like a bunch of silly monkeys too.

Is it any good?

It's no secret these colorful guys know how to entertain preschoolers and toddlers, and this jungle jive doesn't disappoint. Kids can squeal like monkeys, jump like kangaroos, growl like bears, and even sing "Uh-huh, huh" like Elvis on "The Lion is King." The songs are upbeat, catchy, and incredibly contagious, with funny lyrics and music that jumps from calypso and rock-n-roll to country and blues. "The Unicorn" gives a humorous solution to the whereabouts of unicorns with the help of the story of Noah's Ark, and "Dingle Puck Goat" will satisfy ye lil' pirates who fancy rogue behavior now and then. As always, The Wiggles captivate young listeners to dance, count, rhyme, and, yes -- go bananas -- acting like little animals and learning something new about them too.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • The Wiggles are part of a popular TV show in addition to being successful musicians. How can you manage the media that your young ones are exposed to?

  • There have been different members of The Wiggles over the years: how do you think kids are affected when their beloved characters change or go away?

  • Even though shows like The Wiggles are intended to be educational and entertaining, can too much TV be detrimental to younger kids?
