The Wiggles Themed Party Ideas

Children can be so finicky. What they like today, they won’t have anything to do with it tomorrow. One thing that I think all parents can agree on is the staying power of The Wiggles. I remember when they first started twenty years ago. I was 10 years old and my baby brother was infatuated with this new children’s show on the ABC. Four men in coloured skivvies danced about with a dinosaur that ate roses, a cheeky dog that barked a lot and a feather sword wielding pirate who would stumble and bumble his way around the set. Kids were hooked and parents were ever so grateful to have a group who not only kept the children happy, but their music was actually fun to listen too. I remember with Chris, the whole family would be up and dancing to Hot Potato and Dorothy the Dinosaur. What is really freaky – my dad looks like Anthony, aka The Blue Wiggle. Whenever we were out and about little kids would peer at him and then smile and mums would do a double take. I think Dad was not fussed by the attention, and we kids thought it was funny to watch people’s faces. Even our own kids are now convinced their Poppy is the Blue Wiggle!

So, The Wiggles were a family favourite as our youngest sibling grew. He never missed an episode, and would walk around signing the songs. Despite us all being adults now, we still have a soft spot for the gang. When I became a mum, one of the first things I went out and bought was The Wiggles Big Red Car DVD. With Tilly as a newborn bub, I would play the DVD and lie with her on the play mat to play. She could see the screen and would occasionally stop tugging at her gym and stare at the screen. I was surprised that I knew all the songs still after it being 9 years since I had seen an episode or heard a Wiggles song. Just goes to show how brilliant these performers are at what they do. To get Tilly to sleep I would sing Rock-a-bye Your Bear. As she grew, so did our collection of The Wiggles DVDs and music CDs. When Hamish came along, he too was captivated by them. With both children I found dancing along to the songs was a great way to drop the pregnancy weight gain!

The group have gone from strength to strength over the twenty years. Concerts book out fast, new mums who loved them when they were little are introducing their babies to them. I guess they are The Beatles for Babies and Toddlers. A new album was released of Australian musicians each performing their own version of a Wiggles classic. I have this CD and it is great! For your little one’s first birthday why not throw them a die-hard Wiggle-mania party? So simple to organise and so much fun to have! Australia’s #1 Party Shop are also fans of The Wiggles and have a great range of products to ensure you throw the best Wiggly, Wiggly party in your suburb! Toddlers at playgroups will talk of this legendary party for years to come.

Of course you can use The Wiggles merchandise, but also mix it up with items in the colours such as red drinking cups, yellow table cloth, purple napkins and blue cutlery and green plates and bowls. Use the dog bone and car cookie cutters and have a big picnic basket brimming with Big Red Car and Wags Bones cookies. Hang streamers and balloons in red, blue, purple, yellow. Use a white pail and Styrofoam ball to create a lollipop bouquet. Scatter some rose petals around the table so it looks like Dorothy the Dinosaur has popped in for a pre-party snack. Also have a little bowl filled with gold chocolate coins – Captain Feathersword’s loot! Have the little party guests dress as their favourite Wiggle and set up the DVD and CD player with all The Wiggles shows and songs. It will keep the kids happy and bopping away for the whole party. You won’t have to do a thing! Just sit back and sing along.

Make a number one birthday cake and decorate it with edible red, purple, blue glitter and yellow gold stars. For food, serve up cups of wiggly cold spaghetti bolognaise, stuffed mini potatoes, mashed banana smooties, home-made sausage rolls, vegemite pinwheels and fruit salad (yummy yummy!).

Australia’s #1 Party Shop know how to have a wiggly, wiggly great time so see how the pros do it and hold yourself a bright, noisy wiggly party with your children’s (and mine!) favourite group The Wiggles!
