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.
