Restful tunes from around the world.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

The Wiggles model nothing but good behavior in this soothing album.

Violence & scariness

The album contains no violent images.

Sexy stuff

There are no references to sex.

Language

All of the language is child-friendly.

Consumerism

Although there's a fleeting reference to other Wiggles albums, it's meant to assure listeners that this album of lullabies does not contain pirate jigs, invitations to jump up and dance, and other energetic features of their usual wide-awake CDs.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

There are no references to drugs or alcohol.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Wiggles' friendly banter between songs can be fun listening for young ones. But parents putting a colicky baby to bed can skip ahead to the last 20 minutes of the album, where the most soothing lullabies are repeated without dialogue.

What's the story?

We expect The Wiggles to please their legions of fans with good-natured silliness, catchy melodies, and lots of jumping around. But did you know they could tone down their infectious high spirits and sing sleepy time tunes virtually guaranteed to put your little ones in a state of blissful calm? On GO TO SLEEP JEFF! they manage to do just that (despite the exclamation mark), by singing lullabies of their own composition, traditional favorites, and gentle tunes from around the world. Especially restful are the Greek lullaby \"Aspri,\" \"Polish Lullaby,\" and The Wiggles' own \"Take a Trip Out on the Sea.\"

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

It's hard to do better than this creative collection of restful tunes from around the world. And with a generous 76 minutes of music and trademark Wiggles chit-chat, you're bound to find favorites of your own. Just make sure you don't operate complicated machinery while listening to this one -- there's too great a risk of dozing off!

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how music (and life) have similarities all around the world. Lullabies seem to have a universal appeal.

The mother of all lullaby albums

We refer to this bedtime album as "The Big Guns." As in, she's not going to sleep, so we're rolling out The Big Guns. It's guaranteed to send our preschooler off into dreamland, and it's worked for almost three years now. The only problem is, sometimes my husband and I fall asleep to it, too. It's more soothing than anything I've heard in a spa!

My daughter falls asleep to this CD every afternoon

If your like me, The Wiggles have become the biggest stars in my young daughters life.I for one am glad to see shows like The Wiggles, that have more substance than others out there, ie Barney and the Teletubbies. "Wake up Jeff" is one of the better sleep CD's that my daughter will listen to. Although they do talk in between the songs, they do so in very soft tones as not to startle the drowsy toddler. I highly recomend anything by The Wiggles and so would my daughter. A must have for the family's little one!!!
