Wiggly Safari

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Amy Barkat
Crocs, koalas, and camels, oh my! Those dancing denizens from Down Under go wild at the Australia Zoo with a little help from their friend Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter himself, who takes Greg, Murray, Anthony, and Jeff on a Wiggly safari to meet the animals of the Australian Outback. Young listeners will get a familiar spirited boost from those silly Wiggles as they sing and dance with Steve and his wife, Terri -- not to mention Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, and Henry the Octopus. Song subjects include the history of the dingo on "Dingo Tango," with its maracas-powered beat, and the hidden talents of "Old Man Emu" (hint: "If you take a look and he'll ...

Crocs, koalas, and camels, oh my! Those dancing denizens from Down Under go wild at the Australia Zoo with a little help from their friend Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter himself, who takes Greg, Murray, Anthony, and Jeff on a Wiggly safari to meet the animals of the Australian Outback. Young listeners will get a familiar spirited boost from those silly Wiggles as they sing and dance with Steve and his wife, Terri -- not to mention Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, and Henry the Octopus. Song subjects include the history of the dingo on "Dingo Tango," with its maracas-powered beat, and the hidden talents of "Old Man Emu" (hint: "If you take a look and he'll prove to you/He can run the pants off a kangaroo"). When kids aren't clapping their hands to the country twang of "Dorothy Queen of the Roses," they'll be twirling on tiptoe to the classical piano and keyboard on "The Butterflies Flit" or taking a breather on the sweet lullaby "Koala La La," about a napping koala in a eucalyptus tree. But the brightest highlight is the body-moving "Do the Owl," with its disco beat, jumping bass line, and energetic hoots and hollers. The safari comes to a conclusion on "Wiggly Owl Medley," which weaves the Wiggles' greatest hits into one infectious song. Animals -- and preschoolers -- of all stripes will have a ball dancing and laughing with these goofy guys, who are up to their usual hilarious hijinx.
All Music Guide - Aaron Badgley
On this release, the Wiggles joined forces with The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, which makes sense since they are all from Australia. For the most part the music is pure Wiggles with added comments from Irwin and his wife, Terri Irwin. The Wiggles are smart enough to not stray away from their popular formula, but by adding Steve Irwin they are able to keep their music and CDs interesting. The Wiggles write perfect children's music. The songs are short, bright, and peppy with strong beats and repeated lyrics. Children will love this, as will adults. They are sort of the Beatles for kids with a great deal of humor. The melodies are strong and the songs are about animals -- great music for the family. All of the regulars are here: Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, and Henry the Octopus. And the standard Wiggles fare is here. Jeff Fatt even manages to fall asleep and needs to be woken, as usual. The CD closes with a wonderful medley of their hits, which makes a great way to conclude this fun CD.
