The Wiggles 3.0


So today we had the opportunity to take Mini Miss to see the New Wiggles, or Wiggles 3.0 as my lovely husband has named them! 

We were lucky enough to win tickets on our local radio station, which worked out to be a great thing, seeing as Molly loves them and we wanted to take her!!

It was only a couple of months ago that I was in the same auditorium with Miss Teen watching Reece Mastin. The atmosphere was filled with the same level of excitement, but minus, thankfully, the hordes of screaming teenage girls!! 

Lots of little ones from babies to school age had arrived to see the New Wiggles in action! They did not disappoint!! They started on time (a big PLUS in my books, with an already overtired toddler to entertain!), they were full of energy & they were obviously having fun! That all lead to an audience who also enjoyed the show. Yes, they made some mistakes, and laughed at themselves, a lot. But that just made the show more enjoyable! 

The old favourites were still there. Mini Miss's favourites, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and Captain Feathersword as well as Henry. 

Mini Miss attempted to storm the stage when Dorothy appeared, attempting to push past the kindly security lady, who gently guided her away! She then attempted to climb up the stage before settling for dancing right in front of Dorothy and her friends! They had a couple of new characters including Zammel the Camel and Teddy Bear. To be honest, I hope they are only temporary characters as the old ones are a lot better!



They did a fun mix of old and new songs, encouraging the kids to join in. The new dynamic, as far as I can tell, sees the yellow wiggle no longer being the main singer. It seems now they all share that role, which, surprisingly works well. 

Of course, there was a lot of merchandise to buy, but it was all reasonably priced, not cheap, but reasonable. Sadly though, there was still not a lot of "new" Wiggles stuff, but I'm sure they are working on that! Mini Miss was lucky enough to get a Wiggles 3.0 balloon and later, a flashy Dorothy!

All in all, we had a great day out! Mini Miss has spent the evening (after a very long and late afternoon nap!) teaching her Minnie Mouse how to dance like The Wiggles, and playing with her Wags and Dorothy cuddlies and singing various songs.

A special thanks goes to the radio station where we won the tickets, Star FM Coffs Harbour! Without them, we could not have afforded to go!!
