"I was afraid to buy this album after having seen "Wiggly Safari", the latest effort from the Wiggles.I'm so glad I went ahead and got this one. It's absolutely wonderful, with songs and dances you enjoy as soon as you hear and see them.My son loves this one."
A 2001 release- Very good!

"This one is truly a new release, unlike some of their other "new" releases from 1995. In fact Yule Be Wiggling was released on the same date in Australia, so it is fresh out of the press. I own all The Wiggles videos, including their other Christmas one, and this one is exceptionally good! It includes a 3D graphic world as in Toot Toot and Wiggly Playtime. The songs are all very good, all new, and well choreographed. The dances are really fun and festive, perfect for Christmas time or anytime really. My only complaint is in their more professional polished look, they left out most of the familiar smaller children we have seen in all their other videos, in favor of older dancers. It would be nice to see those kids years later and growing up. My baby is 14-month's-old now and has adored anything by The Wiggles since she was 2-month's-old. She took to this new one right off the bat. Of all The Wiggles videos the other Christmas one and Wake-up Jeff are my babies favorites, now we add Yule Be Wiggling to the list. A terrific magical holiday experience for the entire family! Fun, cute, catchy songs, wonderful dancing, and a 3D modeled environment that is very eye chatchy to watch! They just keep getting better all the time."
Absolutely one of their Best!

"You can't go wrong with this video/dvd. The song "Caroo, Caroo" is worth the price of the dvd by itself. Hearing Morgan Crowley sing that is just incredible. It's just so very beautiful - so much so that my husband will be teaching it to his high school choir kids! I love the song "And the World is One." It teaches all about Christmas over the world and the fact that it's hot in Australia during Christmas. Who knew? I sure didn't. You know, if it wasn't for the Wiggles, there would be so much more I wouldn't know. Honestly, I'm not an idiot but there's so much I never learned in school and college and I just can't believe some of the things they've introduced to very young children through their songs and videos. My child will be so much more educated that I was just from watching these guys. They are so good at what they do and really don't get on a parent's nerves. Plus, during vacation Bible school this year, my child was one of the few who knew how to get up and do the movements to the songs since he does so much with the Wiggles. He certainly wasn't shy like the rest of the children.
If you're wondering what these guys are all about, this video is a great one to get. Your children will learn so many great things (nothing nasty here that you have to censor and believe me, I RESEARCH!), including self confidence, that you'll wonder what you did without them. They're comparing the Wiggles to Mr. Rogers and how much he did for kids. They're the only ones out there that are filling in the gap Mr. Rogers left according to me and Time Magazine. The original Christmas songs on this album are just beautiful and point to the real meaning of Christmas. They have fun, but they also teach the right lessons and I appreciate that. My child has been enthralled with these guys for the past year-and-a-half and there's no signs of stopping.
One of the highlights of this album is "the First Noel." Each Wiggle takes a verse and speaks it and it just really does something to you to hear. Kids may miss this part but wow, when Murray says his verse, he says it with such intent that it gives you goosebumps and makes you feel as if you were there at the Nativity. They use choir vocals for the chorus in between the spoken verses and that gal's voice is just amazingly beautiful! This is definitely a family favorite album and dvd - the cd is in the car most of the season! The first Christmas dvd is great too - I love that song "Go, Santa Go!" You know, you'll have folks wondering who's the kid in your house too once you bring these dvds into your home! They're just great!"
Yule be watching this a lot

"We found the VHS version at the local library and checked it out for our 20 month old son to watch. We watched it every day for a week. His 6 year old brother really enjoyed it too, with "Jimmy the Elf" and "Caroo Caroo" being his favorite songs. I also enjoyed "Caroo Caroo" which features the Irish tenor from "Riverdance", Morgan Crowley. I knew this was a keeper so we bought the DVD version which also has karaoke style sing-a-longs for all the songs, or you can turn on subtitles which has the same effect throughout the whole video.
This has become one of our most repeatedly viewed DVDs."
