The Wiggles: Ready, Steady, Wiggle!
A BRAND NEW SEASON OF THE WIGGLES' MOST SUCCESSFUL & POPULAR SHOW
Ready, Steady, Wiggle! Series 3
Ready, Steady, Wiggle! Series 3 is a brand new story based musical series from the early childhood entertainment specialists, The Wiggles.
As in the earlier seasons of this hugely successful and beloved series, the program presents bright and engaging entertainment for pre-school aged children, with many opportunities for play and learning in every episode. With a beautiful range of never-before-seen locations, and new friends to meet such as hand puppet BOK, kids will experience an even broader educational, musical, cultural, and thematic based Wiggly world than ever before.
Each episode of the series begins outside the Wiggle House with a welcome to the child at home, and set ups of the story or challenge of the day. The Wiggles’ stories always take them around the purpose-built Wiggle Town where they invariably need help from one or all of the community living there.
Characters include Officer Beaples (a dancing policewoman who makes sure everyone crosses the road safely and lends a helping hand whenever needed), Wags the Dog, Shirley Shawn the Unicorn, Henry the Octopus, Captain Feathersword the friendly pirate, and Dorothy the Dinosaur. Together they make up the community and all join together to help the Wiggles problem solve, celebrate happy occasions and empathise when things don’t always go as planned.
New character BOK displays all sorts of emotions which are recognised and worked through with the help of the child at home. Segments are designed to encourage the development of empathy with some simple problem solving, to keep the kids engaged. Themes include, ‘all about me’, ‘happy/sad’, ‘transportation’, ‘warm/cold’ and ‘caring for pets’. BOK is sure to become a favourite character amongst families!
At the end of every story, there is a song and a dance to encourage the viewer to get their body moving through movement to the music.
Ready, Steady, Wiggle! Series 3 is a fantastic new addition to the catalogue of quality children’s entertainment that The Wiggles have become renowned for worldwide.
Ready, Steady, Wiggle! Series 1 & 2
Ready, Steady, Wiggle! is the premier series from The Wiggles featuring brand new songs, along with fresh interpretations of favourites. Anthony, Lachy, Simon and Emma engage, entertain and inform children with their catchy tunes and delightful friends.
Over 120 songs are featured across the two series, building upon the unique talent of each Wiggle. There are songs performed live and acoustically during the ‘Live at Wiggle House’ segments, along with new segments such as ‘Emma’s Dance Lessons’, ‘Dressing Up’ and ‘Professor Simon’s Alphabet’. In the Wiggle House there are new locations such as Lachy’s invention room, Simon’s library, and Emma’s music and dance room.
Joining the Wiggles are special guests from around the world, including Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba), as well as familiar friends Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and Captain Feathersword, the friendly pirate!
All the material is guided by the Wiggles’ early childhood educational background, and the program provides a wide range of experiences designed to enhance children’s learning and development. Children are given opportunities to become connected with their environment when they have the chance to broaden their understanding of the world in which they live. The Ready, Steady, Wiggle! programs recognise that children learn best through play and this playful approach is taken in each episode to encourage children to actively engage with ideas.
Children love the Wiggles’ songs and stories as Anthony, Emma, Lachy and Simon sing, dance and play their way through the day!
The core of The Wiggles for me is their humanity; the human scale of what they offer. They’re not puppets, they’re not cartoons - they’re real people. There’s something kind of life-enhancing about The Wiggles, there’s a spirit, a good nature that runs through them.
