"My two year old loves this video! The songs and dances are great, and I am so pleased to see the REAL Wiggles again (their last video Space Dancing was animated). Two wiggly thumbs up!"
Introduction to the Working World and Tribute to New York

"My 3 year old daughter, a huge Wiggles fan, loves this video. We purchased it less than a week ago, and she has asked to watch it nearly every day. The songs are catchy, and after just the first viewing, she was already starting to sing along. One of the best parts of this video was that The Wiggles explored several avenues of the work force. There were interviews with a doctor, a dentist, and a swimmer, and a NY firefighter talked about the gear that he wears and his job, which was one of my daughter's favorite parts. There was also a performance by an airline pilot and his passengers and crew.While there are dances, many of them are performed by The Wiggly dancers, instead of just The Wiggles themselves, but the dances are all great and have the potential of getting your child involved. This video also incorporates more scenic views, and footage of the outside world, rather than focusing primarily on dancing. I felt like this was more of an educational video almost (which is not really a bad thing), but it was also packed with a whole lot of fun. If you're new to The Wiggles, I would suggest perhaps viewing one or several of their earlier tapes first. If you're looking for a video about the working world, this is a great choice."
A very good Wiggles choice.

"I think this Wiggles video is good because it offers a nice selection of teaching with the usual Wiggles song and dance format. I like the character career profiles and their simplistic job descriptions. I'm not particularly put off about the predominence of "professional dancers" over the original Wiggles. I think this format is a refreshing change, but retains enough of the familiarity of the more traditional Wiggles releases. The DVD offers an extensive (about 20 minutes) "making of" preview of a yet to be released Cold Spaghetti Western. There is a significant amount of behind the scenes footage as well as outtakes and documentary interview-type profiles of actors and characters. The DVD has a Jukebox song selection where you may chose to watch//listen to individual songs. There is also a photo gallery which I believe is not narrated. The songs are new and refreshing- not dull and drippy like I thought they were in Wiggle Bay. At least one of the songs I have previously seen on the TV series (i.e. Central Park New York). I think this DVD is worth buying, especially for any Wiggles fan (we have at least 10). If you are new to the Wiggles, this would make a fine start. You might be interested in knowing however, that earlier releases (before their rocket to fame) generally are much simpler, less flashy productions, and focused more on just upbeat singing and dancing of the Wiggles themselves and little kids."
WIGGLES on TOP with Top of the Tots

"Their songs keep on getting better and better... These are some of the best tunes they've ever written. I find myself singing them all day. My nearly 2-year-old LOVES THIS DVD! She loves the dogs and the airplanes and the firetrucks and the cows... I like the educational material incorporated into the songs/skits. I think the interesting and neat thing about The Wiggles is their ability to write songs that both kids and parents like. Some of my child's "music" for children is barely tolerable whereas I never get sick of anything by The Wiggles, especially their more recent releases. The only drawback to this DVD is there is very little "solo" Dorothy, Wags, Henry or Captain Feathersord scenes but for some reason the whole big group ensemble along with the dancers and children really works. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. IT'S WONDERFUL."
