The Wiggles Live! - Review & Giveaway****Updated with Winner



***********Congrats to commenter number 1, Annie!

One of my favorite memories is of driving home after work with my not quite 2 year old twins watching the Wiggles DVD on the portable player. Although they had a rather limited vocabulary at the time, they would sing their little hearts out chanting "Go,Go,Go,Go,Go" and bobbing their little heads.

I got such enjoyment from seeing their delighted little expressions in the rearview mirror. And so began our love affair with the Wiggles. We had to start our weekend days after the Wiggles came on in the morning. Our DVD collection grew exponentially as did the Wiggles themed toys and gear.

On more than one occasion, I caught myself singing "Fruit salad, yummy yummy" or "Where's Jeff ?" at work. Truthfully, I think I got as much of a kick out of them as the kids did. They were songs we could all sing along to. It was good clean, wholesome family fun. Months later when I discovered the Wiggles were coming to the Tacoma Dome I was overjoyed and quickly purchased tickets for our family.

The day of the show, hubby and I were like teenagers about to attend their first rock concert. Seriously, we were so jazzed to be able to experience the Wiggles live with our little fans.

The stage was set amazingly,resembling the tv show to a tee. I was suprised at how excited I got when Greg, Murray, Anthony and Jeff (I know there is a new Wiggle now...forgive me) arrived on stage in The Big Red Car. We danced , we sang, we wore out our throats hoping Dorothy would come to us and get roses. It was great fun spending that family time being silly and enjoying the show.

Remember that episode of "Yes, Dear" where Greg is in the Big Red Car? That's what I always think about...

Favorite thing about The Wiggles? My daughter's happy face when I surprise her with their music in the car - she goes nuts and despite the fact that I will be singing "Fruit Salad" for days, it is well worth it!

We often have a Wiggles CD playing in our car. About a month ago my husband and I went on a date and realized we had unintentionally listened to The Wiggles the entire way to the restaurant and back! We love their catchy tunes!

I love the wide grin my 20-month-old son gets on his face when we start playing a Wiggles DVD. Also the way he will move his arms or bob up and down to the songs. Another favorite thing about the Wiggles? Guaranteed distraction while waiting at the doctor's office or enduring a long plane flight!
