Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Best preschool show ever!

The Wiggles are fun, energetic, and entertaining. Their music is insanely catchy and will be lodged in your head for years. Every now and then I still break out into "fruit salad yummy yummy" and "hot potato hot potato"! Some preschool programs now have weird agendas or are just extremely annoying. Not so with The Wiggles, with their colorful world of good friends, silly songs and simple pleasures. I highly recommend this.

My son loves the wiggles! He dances and sings, and usually won't sit down while its playing, so parents worried about their kids being couch potatoes, this is not that kind of video. It is full of music, dancing, singing and positive messages. Compared to some of the crap that is out there for kids these days, the wiggles are a welcome difference.

Educational value
