A lot different

"My toddler son is a big Wiggles fan, as am I. I was so sad to see Greg leave but determined to give the new guy (Sam) a chance. Greg was such a presence and has such a pleasant, gentle-seeming way about him, combined with that amazing voice, I figured it must be a really tough role to fill for Sam. Sat down and watched this video through. Well, I did anyhow. My 2 year old was bored and gone from the tv after about 10 minutes.
This video is a LOT different than earlier ones. It's a lot slower overall and has almost a sleepy feel to it in parts. My son likes the songs that have dances he can learn and do the motions to (like Hot Potato, Rock-a-bye your bear, Can you point your fingers and do the twist, etc). There aren't any of those on this. I realize it's nursery rhymes etc and not their own stuff, but still, there is nothing to draw him in and involve him.
Sam has a good voice - but if you're a big fan of Greg's voice, you'll find it a whole lot different. Greg's voice is smooth as silk, low, relaxing (almost hypnotic sometimes - wish he'd do a lullaby cd!), while Sam's is more a tenor and very musical theater sounding. Sam seemed to me to be ill-at-ease and not at all comfortable with being silly and goofy - his attempts at it seemed put on and, in places, like he was trying way too hard and coming off like he was overacting. I hope that as he gets used to his role that some chemistry shows between the other 3 guys and him - there didn't seem to be any. Perhaps it's just growing pains and getting used to trying to fill some very big shoes.
Overall, this is not a DVD we'll watch very much at all. However, there is one fantastic thing on it. One of the bonus features is the ability to watch it with an interpreter doing American Sign Language in the bottom right corner. No one in my house is deaf, but I used to teach sign language so after my son was through watching, I wanted to see the interpreter. He is AMAZING - not only signs beautifully (of course!), but is super expressive, has just the right amount of Wiggle-silliness/goofiness, and seems like he's having a great time. He's a real joy to watch! Wish Sam came off a bit more like that - this DVD would've been far better, in my opinion.
Here's hoping that they go back to the catchy tunes and simple repetitive "dances" that the little ones can learn and join in. (But please keep the interpreter - he's great!)"
New Wiggly fun

"Pop Goes the Wiggle Nursery Rhymes
The first new Dvd in some time form the Wiggles, the first song filled show with Sam Moran as Sam the Yellow Wiggle. Getting Strong in our opinion was more a skit filled then song filled (still good!). It's nice to see them rolling out the Dvd's again after a bit of a Wiggly lull. This new Dvd, is a bunch of Nursery Rhymes from all over the world. My son is 3 and still loves the Wiggles, we have all the Dvd and go to the shows when the are in the area. I would recommend the Dvd if your kiddos enjoy the Fab 4 of Australia. It is all songs/rhymes and not many skits. I have already recommended this one to friends after just one viewing."

"This DVD is phenomenal!! Parents, as I mentioned with the other Wiggles nursery rhyme DVD entitled Sing a Song of Wiggles, if you and your child are fans of the Wiggles, then this is another one to add to the collection. The Wiggles sing, dance and perform over 20 great nursery rhymes in the usual Wiggles fashion that will keep your little one entertained and even if necessary soothe him/her to sleep. Songs include..
The Farmer in the Dell
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Hey Diddle Diddle
English Country Garden (sung beautifully by Dorothy and yes surprisingly the Captain..lol)
There was a Princess (nicely sung and acted out by Sam and his wife Lynn Moran and the other Wiggles)
Three Little Kittens (also nicely acted out by the Wiggles)
Itsty Bitsy Spider
Skip to My Lou
Jack & Jill.. and many more..
