Learn a new dance with "Sporting Salsa", play a version of musical cushions with "When the Music Stops", smell, see, touch, taste and hear with "The Five Senses", explore language with "A Frog Went A Walking", examine comparative use of language with "The Biggest Smile of All", and compare letters and sounds of other languages with "Yiasou Everybody!"

I bought Getting Strong for my 2 year old son who is a huge Wiggles Fan. We have all of the DVDs that are out. I was afraid that Getting Strong was going to tank with him because this is the first DVD with Sam as the yellow Wiggle. To my surprise it is a big hit. Not only with my 2 year old but with my 4 year old. Finally a DVD that they both agree on.
Getting Strong is not like any other Wiggle DVD. Each Wiggle has an equal part in the singing and dancing. You actually hear Jeff sing!!!! It is colorful and has very catchy songs. This DVD also is very educational. The Wiggles teach colors, letters, shapes and letter sounds. The seem to have focused on education then song this go around. Not to say the songs are not cute as always.
For those who attended Wiggle World at Six Flags, these are the songs that were playing on all of the rides.
Very cute! Way to go!

We were so excited to see the first DVD with Sam featured. It is educational but too boring for younger viewers. My son is 2 and loved Wiggling around the Clock, Sailing, and Toot Toot probably because they have so much singing. Getting Strong is a lot of talking. It reminds me of Sesame Street and would probably be most appropriate for 4 yrs. and older. The DVD is well done- nice costumes and backgrounds. Has some favorite Wiggly Dancers and many new dancers, band players, and children.

Sure,this video is more educational then all the past ones. But what none of these reviewers realise is,this video is actually 2 episodes of the Wiggles new television series, Wiggle and Learn,to be airing next year.The highlight of this, for me, was getting to know Sam a little better. His voice is just beautiful (he is clasically trained,after all)and his personality is sweet and goofy. The songs are catchy and fun,and there's plenty of humor too. I agree,it's more for the preschool set and up,not so much for babies.My children,ages 4 and 8 enjoy it,and so do I. Well done Wiggles!

Greg Page was always going to be hard to replace -- his voice is remarkably pleasant and he had a winning way about him -- but Sam Moran surprises in his first video outing. His voice is different from Greg's, but very fine -- in some ways, more polished. He also has an amiable manner, and immediately won over my two-year-old daughter. Judging by her chatter, Sam rivals Murray for the title of her favorite Wiggle character. I agree with the comment that the digital backgrounds are a drawback, but as the digital work goes in these kinds of videos, what we see here isn't bad.

I was so sad that Greg wasn't going to be part of the Wiggles I wasn't even sure I wanted to buy the new DVD. Our granddaughter who is 26 months old has been watching the WIGGLES with us since she was six months old, so we were concerned this would bother her. She seemed to accept SAM and there was new and old music in the DVD. The best part is that it was much more educational combining phonetics with the usual songs and skits. Really I don't understand most of the cricism of the silliness, etc. This is meant for preschoolers,it is meant to be basic, simple and understandable for children with limited vocabulary and motor skills not for their parents. I love the reinforcement of manners and nutrition and cultural diversity of songs and dances. YEAH WIGGLES!!!

My kids and I do miss Greg, but Sam's debut was greatly received by our family.

This is an awesome DVD. My 3 year old daughter keeps showing her muscles and telling me she is getting strong and my 19 month old loves the music.

I miss Greg's voice but Sam has his own unique sound as well. The songs are catchy and sweet and the fact that this is more of an educational DVD makes this mommy very happy. :-)

Bought this DVD for my 2yr old son's birthday. He LOVES it! If you watch the Wiggles on weekday mornings on Sprout, you will recognize the content of this DVD. I love it for taking with us when we travel. My son still gets his Wiggles just like we were at home. Overall, a great DVD.

We were very excited to get this new Wiggles. The best way to describe is...different. It definitely has a more educational feel to it. I can't believe I watched Murray and Jeff fold origami!
Sam is wonderful. My 2 1/2 year old really seems to enjoy this movie, even if it is much slower paced than previous movies. He is watching it for the first time as I type and I can hear him answering the questions the Wiggles ask. I think he loves them so much, it doesn't matter what they do.
If you are expecting this to have the same feel as every other movie/tv show you've seen, you may be disappointed. I know I can't sit through this one more than once or twice. Though, I have watched the tv shows and other movies dozens of times each! I also expected a movie called "Getting Strong" to have more upbeat songs to dance to, but that isn't the case. I can't believe I miss "Choo,Choo Chugga Chugga Big Red Car".
Overall, the Wiggles can do no wrong in this house, but be prepared to watch a "different kind of Wiggles". I hope they go back to the old format for future videos.
