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!!
