She can dance, sing, play the drums, sign, drive the Big Red Car and is, as far as this family is concerned, the star of every episode of The Wiggles.
Honestly, is there anything Emma Wiggle can’t do?!
With Disney Princess paraphernalia at every turn, Emma Wiggle is a refreshing change and positive role model for my two young girls. They just can’t get enough of her.
Miss Almost Four’s obsession with Emma Wiggle is particularly strong. She watches Emma on ABC iView every chance she can get. She has even requested an Emma Wiggle doll almost the same size as her for her birthday – yes, they do exist.
Meanwhile, I may have a teeny Emma Wiggle girl-crush myself. Her epic jazz moves take me back to my childhood dancing days. I spent a good couple of hours recently attempting to learn the dance in the clip below. If it wasn’t for the chicken wings move, I would have nailed it.
The girls and I were thrilled to get our hands on Emma’s latest DVD, Dial E for Emma, released today (5 October).
The three of us sat down to enjoy Emma’s latest offering and were captivated by a gentle and beautifully elegant mix of ballet, sign language and song.
Dance and sign language play a big part in Dial E for Emma. It drew my two girls in straight away. They were thrilled to learn how to sign E – M – M – A and within minutes Miss Six taught herself how to sign her own name.
The thing that struck me early on about Dial E for Emma, was the softer and gentler tone of music. I love the upbeat tunes of The Wiggles, don’t get me wrong, but Dial E for Emma has a beautifully delicate and even relaxing feel to it.
Throughout the DVD, Emma receives calls on her yellow bow-tastic phone to meet up with interesting characters, including pig tail polka dancers, Lachie posing as a king, and Anthony dressed up as a giant fish.
Dial E for Emma is jam-packed with everything my girls like – skipping, hula hooping and even skipping with a hula hoop! I think Miss Almost Four fell in love with Emma even more when she sang about bicycle bells and ballet.
It of course wouldn’t be an Emma DVD without her showing off her mad drumming skills. The girls were seriously impressed with Emma’s drum solo, while I eagerly eyed off her royal blue sequined jacket and knee high socks.
There is also dancing galore in Dial E for Emma with everything from jazz and ballet, to line dancing, highland dancing and fusion.
If you have an Emma fan in your house, you need to get your hands on Dial E for Emma.
