  • You know the video is in trouble when your toddler DOESN'T want to watch it again.

    4.5
    Storyline – lots of interviews with career folks such as a firefighter, a doctor, a grocer, and an Olympic Swimmer. Unless your pups are thinking what to do as a career, this will hardly hold their interest. The Wiggles DO visit the Great Wall of China though but their videos don’t take advantage of this fact at all. Not even a panning of them walking on the Great Wall or talking with little kids there. Too bad, that was a fabulous opportunity.



    Songs – The songs are brand new, at least when they were released before The Wiggles Show season made it to Disney. They mix in the career folks as well. This is the last video besides the Live Hot Potatoes video that has live-action videos, so no animated pieces of whatever. With the lack of classic songs, it may completely bore your pup out of the lack of familiarity.



    Dances – The Wiggly Dancers are mentioned by name! That's fun, although none of them speak yet. Hardly any kids dancing in the videos. If the little kids aren't dancing, why would yours?



    Mascots – rarely used. Dorothy interviews the dentist. The others introduce segments but hardly particpate in anything.



    Characters and guests – well there are no skits, so it's all guests. Kieran Perkins got a great opportunity to show off his medals. The firefighter showed his equipment. Everything else came out flat except for Murray's interacting with one of the kids during the credits.



    Rent at the library but watch whether your kid will take it. My pup didn't so it's going back.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Greg and the kids wear watches for "Tick Tock (All Night Long)." but the other Wiggles and dancers do not. Greg normally does not wear a watch, although he did once for the Wiggly Wiggly Christmas video cover and some of the videos within.

    • A longer scene where Seamus tells Murray about bread is played during the end credits.

    • Lucy's Hair
      Lucy is a redhead in the Tots videos.

    • Wiggly Console Games
      In the Fly through the Sky video, the Wiggles hold Sony PS2 controllers as they pretend to fly a plane.

    • Matching Dancers with Names:
      This is one of the few times the dancers are introduced by name. The five dancers in this video are Larissa, Ryan, Tamara, Franco, and Lucy.

      The other three dancers (Kristy, Caterina, and Katherine) double as Mascots and Wiggly Dancers.

      During the rolling of the credits, all the dancers and mascots are presented again by name with two juxtaposed video images. The left one is in street clothes and the right one is in their Wiggly Dancer outfit.
