    Just explaining.....

    Wiggles are a 4 man Aussie music band aiming at the preschool children market. Very popular here and they are branching out with their first overseas tour.

    Has anyone noticed that the band's name and logo look oddly similar to the Telletubbies?

    Thank you Aus nurse - good explaination
    However in a way the responses so far answers the question
    Who are they ?

    They are popular here and according to what l have been reading they are taking off over there - Have been around for a lot longer than the tele tubbies (I think)

    Anyway please respond if you know them or you dont.

    If you are a parent and you haven't heard of the wiggles than thank your lucky stars. I don't have kids, but work in PICU/PHDU where the Wiggles would have to be the number one video choice of the kids. We had one LONG term patient who would watch nothing but the Wiggles, we are talking 7+ months of Wiggles videos day after day...I think most of us would be happy never to hear them ever again!!!!

    My daughter loves the Wiggles!! They were in Madison, WI but I had an exam and couldn't take her. I don't mind them. They are a heck of a lot better than Sponge Bob or others for a four-year-old. And definitely better than Tubbies or BARNEY (he should be shot).

    My 2 year old nephew is addicted.

    My sister and brother-in-law took him to see them a few months ago----he loved it.

    I think they are a little odd---especially Captain Feathersword---but, I'm not 2. So.......

    I will admit, that I can stand to sit through one of those videos better than I can sit through Barney.
