What's the story?

The Wiggles can do no wrong it seems, and they continue to create infectious, preschooler-friendly tunes and characters. ITS A WIGGLY WIGGLY WORLD features 16 wigglicious songs from the show (including "Here Come The Wiggles," "In the Wiggles' World," and "In the Big Red Car We Like to Ride.") Australian singers Jimmy Little and Christine Anu join the wiggly party, and Tim Finn from Crowded House sings on "Six Months on a Leaky Boat."

Is it any good?

If your Wiggles fans can't get enough of Anthony, Murray, Jeff, and Greg,  then they'll love hearing their favorite guys -- and a pirate or two -- singing about Dorothy the Dinosaur, riding in the Big Red Car, and being joined by friends from around the world. The music is classic Wiggles style: catchy, upbeat, and full of fun lyrics and imagery designed to get little bodies and minds moving. "I Love to Have a Dance with Dorothy" and "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport" will keep kids singing all day, and "Blow Me Down" is a fun, free game of lung power.

Fun, Educational, Quality, Multilingual, Cultural Music - Excellent Collection!

This is my personal favorite collection of Wiggles music. It introduces children to traditional music styles from all over the world, in a fun, bright and delightful way. There are many very catchy songs. My personal favorite is Taba Naba. There is something for every musical taste. My children are now familiar with Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport, singing in Japanese and an old favorite of mine, Six Months in a Leaky Boat gets a slight makeover so it appeals more to children. The Wiggles are very dedicated to educating young children, getting them to participate, and are excellent role models. I have met them on three separate occasions and they are the most sincere, and humble of men, Add in their honest intent and real talent, and you have a recipe for something that can be a real benefit to your children. One of my daughters had speech delays associated with autism. The Wiggles were therapy for her from age three. At 15, she is now a fully functioning high school student, who is not ashamed of her status as a Wiggles fan. They are very deserving of the praise they receive. This CD and video are excellent examples of some of their very best work.
