My 5 yr old and 2 yr old daughters both love the Wiggles. The catchy songs and creative skits have them requesting the DVD often. I bought this to leave at Grandma's house and they can't wait to watch it when they visit. My 2 yr old, who has a speech delay, loves to sing along with the Wiggles and has learned songs from this video that I had never heard of. It's a great video with Sam, whom we love for his beautiful voice. I highly recommend.
My toddler son is a big Wiggles fan, as am I. I was so sad to see Greg leave but determined to give the new guy (Sam) a chance. Greg was such a presence and has such a pleasant, gentle-seeming way about him, combined with that amazing voice, I figured it must be a really tough role to fill for Sam. Sat down and watched this video through. Well, I did anyhow. My 2 year old was bored and gone from the tv after about 10 minutes. This video is a LOT different than earlier ones. It's a lot slower overall and has almost a sleepy feel to it in parts. My son likes the songs that have dances he can learn and do the motions to (like Hot Potato, Rock-a-bye your bear, Can you point your fingers and do the twist, etc). There aren't any of those on this. I realize it's nursery rhymes etc and not their own stuff, but still, there is nothing to draw him in and involve him. Sam has a good voice - but if you're a big fan of Greg's voice, you'll find it a whole lot different. Greg's voice is smooth as silk, low, relaxing (almost hypnotic sometimes - wish he'd do a lullaby cd!), while Sam's is more a tenor and very musical theater sounding. Sam seemed to me to be ill-at-ease and not at all comfortable with being silly and goofy - his attempts at it seemed put on and, in places, like he was trying way too hard and coming off like he was overacting. I hope that as he gets used to his role that some chemistry shows between the other 3 guys and him - there didn't seem to be any. Perhaps it's just growing pains and getting used to trying to fill some very big shoes. Overall, this is not a DVD we'll watch very much at all. However, there is one fantastic thing on it. One of the bonus features is the ability to watch it with an interpreter doing American Sign Language in the bottom right corner. No one in my house is deaf, but I used to teach sign language so after my son was through watching, I wanted to see the interpreter. He is AMAZING - not only signs beautifully (of course!), but is super expressive, has just the right amount of Wiggle-silliness/goofiness, and seems like he's having a great time. He's a real joy to watch! Wish Sam came off a bit more like that - this DVD would've been far better, in my opinion. Here's hoping that they go back to the catchy tunes and simple repetitive "dances" that the little ones can learn and join in. (But please keep the interpreter - he's great!)
My 2 1/2-year-old-twins absolutely love this video. They're huge Wiggles fans, but aren't old enough to notice Greg's absence; while I certainly liked Greg very much, I think Sam is a wonderful addition to the group. His voice is smooth, he has a good range, and he is very expressive--the girls love to watch him. Probably the best thing about this DVD is its variety: there are few skits, and the DVD moves along at a good pace. This holds the girls' attention, and makes it less tiresome when hearing it for the umpteenth time. I also like that all of the Wiggles and Captain Feathersword seem to do a bit more soloing on this DVD--it adds to the fun. Plus it has replenished my repertoire of nursery rhymes: my kids haven't yet tired of "Sing a Song of Sixpence" or "Mairzy Doats," but I was getting a little tired of singing them all the time!
First, I just want to say that I was nervous about Greg being replaced by Sam, but have long since decided that I love them both. (Yes, I do love The Wiggles!)This DVD is fabulous. I love "This Old Man" and Captain Feathersword as a jack-in-the-box for "Pop Goes the Weasel." I probably love the whole DVD. But I wanted to give The Wiggles kudos for the option of watching the video with an ASL interpreter. For young deaf children who are too young to read, or for parents who want their children exposed to ASL for whatever reason, this is a fantastic option. (If you want exposure, "Signing Time" is an excellent option). My children are not deaf, though I am. We have watched the ASL track several times, and the interpreter did a FABULOUS job of interpreting these songs, some of which I consider to be difficult to translate properly in ASL. The only sign I didn't recognize was "skip" but I'm wondering if it could be an Australian sign. What a joy! We have and have watched many Wiggles DVD's. The only one I don't really love is Space Dancing, but then, it is the favorite of my older kids. If you're afraid of joining the Wiggles bandwagon, please don't be. My three-year-old rarely wants to watch anything else, and they really are a gem. All five of them, counting Greg!
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) My 15 month old loves the wiggles! anything wiggles. when he received this DVD he saw the pic and was super excited. But when i started the DVD it was a whole different story. The picture was very faded and he just didn't care much for it. We took it out and haven't gone back to it since.
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) We bought this DVD after listening to the audio CD of "Pop Go The Wiggles." I like that it has many classic nursery rhymes and songs that have been around for ages. We own two other Wiggles DVDs (Big Red Car and Yummy Yummy), which are both fine, but none of the songs from those two DVDs are going to be found in other music collections. I'd like my children to be familiar with the older nursery rhymes and songs, even though they seem to be fading out of today's society. The Wiggles act out each song with fun characters and costumes. I like how enthusiastic they are when singing, while seeming sincere- not overly dramatic. I wouldn't consider their portrayal to be "cheesy," but more like they are encouraging their audience to have fun and dance along. After listening to the CD so many times in the car, my kids got a real kick out of seeing the songs acted on on the TV. My one-year-old and three-year-old enjoy this DVD very much!
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) This DVD is phenomenal!! Parents, as I mentioned with the other Wiggles nursery rhyme DVD entitled Sing a Song of Wiggles, if you and your child are fans of the Wiggles, then this is another one to add to the collection. The Wiggles sing, dance and perform over 20 great nursery rhymes in the usual Wiggles fashion that will keep your little one entertained and even if necessary soothe him/her to sleep. Songs include..The Farmer in the DellTeddy Bear, Teddy BearTwinkle, Twinkle Little StarHey Diddle DiddleEnglish Country Garden (sung beautifully by Dorothy and yes surprisingly the Captain..lol)There was a Princess (nicely sung and acted out by Sam and his wife Lynn Moran and the other Wiggles)Three Little Kittens (also nicely acted out by the Wiggles)Itsty Bitsy SpiderSkip to My LouJack & Jill.. and many more..
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) Good old-fashion fun and rhymes, great for kids AND adults! Colorful costumes and great dancing, loved it! So glad to see a group resort back to the children classics of nursery rhymes.
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) A change of pace for the wiggles. Lots more singing from members other than Sam. Kids still love it though.
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) My daughter love these guys! So I think that it depends on what your kid like, it's a very good video.
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) My 2 year old and 5 month old love this DVD. We put it in the DVD player in the car for long trips and they clap and my wife and I sing along.
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) We love the new school Wiggles, and this video is full of costumes and computer animated backgrounds that add to the ambiance of the nursery rhymes. I would recommend Sing a Sing of Wiggles as the best nursery rhymes to get if you want only one, and if your child really likes nursery rhymes like mine this is a good followup DVD.

This review is from: Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) DVD is wonderfully done. Nursery rhymes and more that engage the kids to participate. Beautiful music, lots of dancing and fun. My Kids are 3.5 and 1.5 and they are engaged without just having a TV lobotomy.
My daughter is one year old and she loves this Dvd. She watches it almost everyday and for her it is really entertaining, everytime is like the first time and she dances with the songs. The nursery rhymes are well presented, with colouful yet simple and realistic images. I realy like the fact that it is not cartoonish, on the contrary, the songs are accompanied by personswho are dressed up and carry out the coreography.
This review is from: Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) My three year old son loves it. He was a little bit of a Wiggles fan but now we watch it almost everyday. Lots of songs that keep him dancing along with them. Perfect for kids. Nursery rhymes and Wiggles = win win.
This review is from: The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) My little one absolutely loves this nursery DVD we have to watch it everyday . Terrific buy for your little one and a bit of down time for you
We got this dvd last year from Australia. This is one of our favorite wiggles dvd's. I highly recommend it, Sam is really a pleasure to watch and listen to, his voice is beautiful.
My 2 yr old granddaughter loves this DVD as well as her others. I highly recommend this one especially because of the Nursery rhymes and a very lovely lullabye by Sam called"Chi-Baba ChiBaba." Sam has the perfect voice for this song. Never heard it before and now Ican't get enough of that one song alone. I am so glad Sam was picked to join this group. He is a welcome addition. We are looking forward to adding to our Wiggles Collection. This will not be our last.
This review is from: Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles (DVD) Pop Go the Wiggles, is not as good as "Wiggly Safari" or "Big Red Boat". But it is a good addition to your Wiggles library. It is a conglomeration of many of the Wiggle hits.
