What's the story?

The Wiggles are the most popular children's entertainers in Australia. Their live concerts are routinely sold out, and many of their albums have gone platinum. The dynamic four (Jeff, Anthony, Murray, and Greg) and the characters they have created (Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog, and Captain Feathersword the friendly Pirate) are household names among Australian preschoolers (and many American ones, as well).

Is it any good?

In LET'S WIGGLE, the energetic quartet offers an upbeat combination of traditional music and original creations. In "Dorothy the Dinosaur," kids are introduced to the green dinosaur as they "romp-bomp-a-chomp" to their hearts' content. In "We're All Friends," "Dorothy's Birthday Party," and "Henry the Octopus," young listeners meet the rest of the colorful ensemble. Other tracks encourage dancing, walking, running, jumping, stomping, nodding, and -- of course -- wiggling.

"Bound for South Australia" introduces a little geography, and "The Dreaming Song" treats listeners to the mythical sound of the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo. Extremely easy-to-remember lyrics, repetitive verses, very short tunes, and a kids' chorus all encourage children to sing along and dance to this album.
