Editorial Reviews

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!

I almost didn't buy this dvd because of the reviews saying it's boring. My kids and I love Sam's voice and this does showcase his voice well, especially in Henry's spinning song. One of our favorite numbers has to be Hula Hula Baby. It was great to hear the dancers sing for a change, and they are really talented singers, and all the while they sing they are doing hoola hooping. Very impressive. One of the best instrumentals was O Mio Babbino Caro and the musicians were wonderful. It was a little disappointing that Dorothy the Dinosaur couldn't sing the melody but the musicians made up for it. The songs are catchy and who can ever get tired of Sam's lovely voice?

My two and a half year old daughter absolutely ADORES the Wiggles. She has all the singing dolls, tons of their CDs & DVDs, won't go to sleep without Henry the Octopus, and had a blast at their concert this summer. I pre-ordered this new release and got it about a week ago. We have tried to watch it several times, but it does not hold her attention at all! Actually, she practically falls asleep. The only "catchy tune" on this one is "Hula, Hula Baby".

The Wiggles should be commended for their attempt to introduce children to various instruments from around the world including the Ukele and the Greek Bouzouki as well as the music of Puccini, however, this one fell flat for our Wiggle's Loving Tot. The songs do not relate to things in a toddlers world. If they wanted to go with a beach theme they would have been better off with simple ideas such as waves and sand while sticking to their signature repetitive tunes that toddlers love so much.

Sorry, but this one is not a winner.

I usually don't write reviews unless the products are absolutely worthwhile to write about and so good, I can't contain myself. This is one of those. I've purchased many of The Wiggles DVDs after discovering them from a loan at the local library when my grandson was still an infant. He loved it so much, so I started buying one at a time and I just purchased this one recently. The music is so wonderful from the beginning, the choreography in each song is absolutely fabulous with new characters and dancers. Al Roker is a nice addition to this DVD. I love the music so much, I am thinking about putting the DVD in so I can listen to the music even when my grandson is not around.

Not one of the great Wiggles productions. Has a studio feel to it. Hard for the kids to dance to. Lots of the same characters. A familiarity with the other Wiggles offerings is a big plus. Interesting to see a few more of the Field family members onscreen.

Ukulele Baby is another great Wiggles addition. It includes one of the new Wiggles members, Simon Pryce as "Ringo the Ringmaster", and while his part is small, I thought he was great, and I'm looking forward to the new group lineup.

The songs on this DVD are mellow (given the prominence of the ukulele instrument), but up-tempo enough to keep my 1-year old watching. I don't mind having a few of these songs stuck in my head the next day...they're definitely not annoying, as some children's music tends to be. This DVD had to grow on me over time, but it has become one of my favorites.

5 stars for Ukulele Baby!

Ukulele Baby is a cute and adorable movie even though this title role hardly appears during the title credits. I really love the paradise of Hawaii, and one of my favorite songs is "When I Strum My Ukulele" sung by Murray, my second favorite wiggle... and "The Good Ship Fabulous Flea" featuring Rolf Harris from Wiggly, Wiggly World.

I'm glad about Al Roker the Guest Starring Orange Wiggle playing the part of a weather man and Ringo the Ringmaster along with Captain Feathersword joining in with the Wiggles and some kids for a song, "I'm Waving to You" My favorite part is when Anthony, his wife and daughters dance the ballet.

We've listened to a lot of Wiggles around our house for 6 years now. This is their best album yet. The songs are catchy and fun. The sound of Sam and Ringo make it wonderful. The Wiggles have made a big mistake getting rid of Sam. He added a lot of musical talent to the group. We won't be buying anything new from the Wiggles.

My toddler would watch this over and over and over and over. . . again. He was a die hard Wiggles fan at one point. Ukulele Baby was very enjoyable to him. We have the DVD and CD.
