The Wiggles are heading out on tour to introduce their new cast, which includes the first-ever female Wiggle.
In addition to the live tour, the popular kids’ brand is releasing a new CD and a range of new licensed product.
"With major new licensing partners including Wicked Cool Toys, who will launch our master toy line this fall, our amazing video and music partners, NCircle Entertainment and Razor & Tie, and of course our entertainment partners, Sprout, Sirius and Corus Entertainment in Canada, we are poised for some exciting growth in 2013 and beyond," says Ashley Mady, president, Brandberry, licensing agent for The Wiggles.
The worldwide “Taking Off” tour kicks off in North America this August and will run through October.
“The new cast will truly connect with today’s generation,” says Anthony Field, the creator of the band, who continues as the Blue Wiggle. “There’s a new energy within the group and we’ve got a lot of new songs as well as your Wiggly favorites. Audiences will get their first opportunity to hear some new Wiggles material from the CD titled ‘Taking Off!,’ releasing in North America in late spring, and the ‘Taking Off!’ DVD later this summer."
The new CD plays like a full Wiggles concert and includes songs from the new television show “Ready, Steady, Wiggle!” set to air on Sprout and Treehouse TV this fall.
