I have seen the future of Wiggles Videos and it is this...

"First Wiggly Safari came out and it was a little shift of formula: a Wiggles video with a theme and the setting was outdoors (instead of their filming studio with blue screens and cheesey special effects). Now the latest Wiggles project does much the same: outdoor theme (hence the title) no cheesy effects and thank goodness Greg's 5 minute magical act has been removed too. The Wiggles are still lovable and yes your children will still love the songs. Let's face it we buy the videos for the songs and this video has 10 1/2 catchy songs (I'm sorry but Rolliing Down the Sandhill and Running Up the Sandhill are the same song just with different words). The one thing that this video does not have are the children dancers. The dancing is still there but with adults (I guess it is harder to work with children). If you and your kids loved Wiggly Safari then this will be enjoyed by all again. It is a good video but not their best that honor still goes out to either Toot Toot, Yummy Yummy or Wiggle Time. Apparently the theme videos from the Wiggles will continue in the future; the next one will be in outer space."
The "Saving Private Ryan" of Wigglean Cinema

"The parallels are uncanny. From the action-packed onslaught on a beach that begins the film to the bittersweet return home at the finale, "Wiggle Bay" is a touching homage to Speilberg's masterpiece. From the presence of a tall, dark hero (Greg Wiggle = Tom Hanks) to his motley support crew (Anthony = Tom Sizemore, Murray = Vin Diesel, useless "Wake Up, Jeff!" = useless "I won't carry a gun" writer guy) to the storyline of a small, close-knit team stranded in a foreign land, searching for the elusive treasure (Matt Damon vs. a golden key) that will enable them to return home, through their unexpected encounters with other visitors (mermaids = German soldiers) and the ultimate knowledge of our heroes' helplessness in the face of unseen, distant powerbrokers (King Neptune = Eisenhower)... "Wiggle Bay" serves as a bold and touching reinterpretation of the Best Picture winner through the lens of Australian children's cinema.
(Spielberg didn't include quite as many songs about drinking rosy tea, rolling down the sandhills or swimming like a fish, but I can only presume that oversight will be rectified in a future director's cut of Private Ryan.)
Five stars hardly seems like enough praise. Buy it now, and be touched in a way you've never been touched by Wiggles before."
My daughter's new favorite Wiggles DVD!

"We preordered this on DVD last month, for my daughter's 2nd birthday, and from the second we turned it on she sat as if in a trance! Once again, the Wiggles have figured out what kids like, and they deliver.This DVD follows their success with "Wiggly Safari", and once again uses the outdoor format. It has more of a story/plot than their past videos, requiring more dialogue in between songs, which I was afraid would bore or distract my toddler, but she never even blinked once the entire time they were talking-The Wiggles can do no wrong! The story follows The Wiggles, Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog, and Henry the Octopus, as they visit a deserted island for the afternoon, only to become stranded when Captain Feathersword forgets to tie up the boat. Of course, they manage to get the boat back before long, but not before finding a magic seashell, meeting a mermaid, and lots of singing and dancing. They're joined by 4 adult dancers, who spice things up with their antics. Two of the dancers are from "Wiggly Safari", as is Naomi Wallace, who trades in her dancing shoes for fins to play Magdalena the Mermaid.The songs are charming, catchy, and original, as always. Every time I hear a new Wiggles song, I think "Hmm, not the greatest", but after hearing it two or three more times I always find that I know all of the words, and catch myself humming it in the shower or the car! Several have a sort of retro/beach music sound to them, such as the 60's surf rock and Beach Boys tunes.I absolutely recommend this DVD to all Wiggles fans. Although the look and feel are much different from the TV show, which uses interior sets and digital backgrounds, your little ones will fall in love with this from the moment you turn it on. And mom and dad might find themselves watching and singing along as well!"
What no children in this one?!

"We have all The Wiggles videos. I find it very nice that they are now coming out on DVD so we bought this one too. I had no idea The Wiggles, a mermaid and 4 adult dancers would be the only people on this DVD though. The landscape is very pretty and the songs are good, so I am still giving it a high rating, besides my 3-year-old seems to love it as much as all the others. There is a story to this video. The Wiggles find a sea shell and give it to Dorothy and it directs Dorothy to find the golden key. They do a search on the island and find it and give it to the mermaid and Captain Feathersword who take it out to see to find King Neptune. Mostly there is the songs and dancing, but in-between there are a few story lines of this nature making the video more interesting to watch then the standard format. But without any children in it, I find it not up to their normal standard. Fill the beach with kids who swim and dance and it would be a much better film!All in all there is high energy dancing and singing and playing on the beach, so I recommend it and so does my daughter."
