The Wiggles Wiggly Circus Live! Review...



On Thursday I took my 4 year old and 18 month old to see The Wiggles Wiggly Circus Live at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale. We brought along my Mom and my Sister and her 23 month old also. I am a huge fan of the Wiggles so I was really looking forward to this show. My kids are fans too of course:)

Before going to the show I made sure to research what goes on at a Wiggles Concert. At a previous show we went to with Laurie Berkner, all the kids seemed to know to bring Birthday Hats and stuffed animals to put on their heads so I did not want us to get left out this time. I went onto a Wiggles Forum and found out a few things that are done at this concert.

1. Bring Silk Roses for Dorothy. (not real ones! they were all taken away by security)
2. Make a big sign with the kids names on it. (they go around at one point of the show reading all the signs)
3. Make bones for Wags the dog. A lot of people handmade either signs for Wags or stuffed bones for him and they came around and collected them.
4. Bring a camera! You are allowed to take pictures at the show! YAY Pictures!! :)

We found our seats and were thrilled to see we were in the "Hot Potato" seats. These seats have a Wiggles Activity Sheet and a cardboard Guitar on them. Any seat would have been a good seat though. They used half of the Coliseum so it wasn't too overwhelming for the kids.

This show was action packed. They did all sorts of circus performances. A lot of acrobatics. These awesome feats were even done by The Wiggles themselves. Impressive! It really kept you entertained the entire show.

I love how interactive they are with the kids in the audience. They read every sign, took every rose, and every bone from the kids. They even went all the way up into the top row of the Coliseum just so they could read a sign or grab a rose. My son was thrilled when the one to get his rose for Dorothy was Captain Feathersword. He is my son's favorite as you will see in the pictures below.

They sounded great, kept you moving, and really put on a fantastic show. The only downside was that they only played 2 shows in our area. I wish they played 1 more day here on Long Island because I know so many other people that would have loved to go after they heard about it but there is always next time.

Definitely go check them out when they come into your town! Great Family Show!!











**I was given a 4 pack of tickets to the Wiggles Wiggly Circus from usfamilyguide.com to give my honest review**

Did all ages get a kick out of the show? My son was 2 in July, and I'm wondering if he'd like it?

Yes!! My niece who will be 2 in October was dancing all over the place and she really doesn't even watch the Wiggles:) My daughter wanted to get up on stage with them and she is 18 months. I had to keep holding her back from attacking them;) lol Def go and check it out! It was great:)

did they sing "shimmie shake" mu daughter is absolutely obsessed with the song and wants nothing more than to hear it live!

LongIslandMomx2 said...

My son said he doesn't think they did that song. I know they change it all the time. Last year I heard they didn't even do Big Red Car at some of the shows. I guess they like to keep it fresh for the kids that go all the time:) Now that song will be in my head all day! lol

Hi! Did you see any t-shirts that were worth purchasing? I was thinking of bringing my daughters in Wiggles shirts, but now I might wait and buy them there. I bet you get the "concert only" circus shirts which are not available on their website.

LongIslandMomx2 said...

I did! I loved the t-shirts they had. They were expensive but a very nice quality and I loved the purple colored one they had for my daughter!

Can you give me an idea of the length of the show? I'm going next month with my daughter (4 years old).

It was about 90 mins long. Just long enough:)

Thanks for all the great info! I was really curious how long the show was and couldn't seem to find the info anywhere else. Do they have an intermission? My son is still at the "I gotta go right NOW" stage of potty training.

LongIslandMomx2 said...

There was no intermission. It goes very quick. I got there early and made my son go potty right away so we didn't have to get up:) We have the same problem with my son. Have fun!

Did they have fog machines going at the show you went to? I was wondering if this is part of the Wiggles show or just the venue we saw them at. The show itself was great. I couldn't believe their energy!!
