Overview

It's another lighthearted collection of well-made children's music from the Wiggles. The Australian combo is quite skilled at writing songs simplistic enough for kids to follow, but with enough depth that they don't dull the brains of adults. Top of the Tots features the usual spoken song introductions, and Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt, Anthony Field, and Greg Page are in a rambunctious mood, calling to each other midsong. Musically, Tots is a rousing set of breezy piano-led, harmony-drenched pop
ock. "Central Park New York" has a sort of South Pacific lilt, and contains the classic line "G'day squirrels!"; "Fly Through the Sky" and "Feeling Chirpy" channel the bold bubblegum of Ohio Express or Starland Vocal Band; and "New York Firefighter" could be indie darlings the Lucksmiths. This is what makes the Wiggles and Top of the Tots so enjoyable. Sure, the songs are goofy ("We love to work all day/Laying bricks the brickie way," from "The Bricklayers Song"). But the songwriting is strong, varied, and relatively adventurous for children's music. Other topics covered on Top of the Tots include gardening, cowboys, going to the doctor, kneading dough, and walking on the moon; a full lyric sheet is included.
