Hot Potatoes: The Best of the Wiggles DVD Review

Hot Potatoes: The Best of the Wiggles DVD Review

Synopsis: The most successful children’s entertainment group in the world has finally released a collection of their most loved songs, Hot Potatoes! The Best of The Wiggles. The Wiggles’ songs have drawn millions of people over the years to see their live concerts. The New York Times called The Wiggles, “the band that rocks the cradle” and this is certainly true. They have set records for their sold out performances everywhere from Madison Square Garden in New York to the Hammersmith Apollo in London to their home town of Sydney, Australia. Their songs are instantly memorable and get you wiggling in seconds! Those same songs have seen music royalty line up to record music with the fab four of fun! We’ve picked the best for you to listen to, but snap it up as this DVD will go like....hot potatoes!

Review: I'm a parent to three wonderful kids and I love the Wiggles.  If I weren't a parent, I'd probably make fun of them and really not 'get it', but being a parent I've had the chance to not only struggle to find decent programming for my little ones, but to appreciate what good children's programming can bring.  Everything Sesame Street does is gold and the Wiggles are also on that level.

This DVD is a 'greatest hits' of sorts, giving some of the best clips from the various Wiggles specials/movies.  Its a great watch and definately fun for everyone.

The DVD extras include Interviews with the Wiggles' mums, Original film clips from 1991: Rock-A-Bye Your Bear and Here Comes a Bear, The Woman Who Signed the Wiggles!, International film clips: Can You (Point Your Fingers and Do the Twist) (Latin America) and The Monkey Dance (Taiwan), Growing Up with the Wiggles (Fairy Clare and Fairy Larissa), Competition winners' drawings, Wiggletime.com info clip and a Photo gallery

Interest Range: The Wiggles, Kids programming, Pre-K Programming, Singing
