The Wiggles Are So Nice, Only Bad Parents Hate Them

wiggles_graceland.jpgHere's a quick recap of the NY Times Magazine's love letter to The Wiggles:

The Wiggles is like one big family--did you know they carry their own luggage?--who really do it all for the kids, who love them. Which means they feel really sheepish about making $48 million last year on licensed merchandise and touring and TV shows and DVD's and theme parks and multinational franchises and food tie-ins and corporate sponsorships. Did you know they meet handicapped children before each performance?

PS. Can't stand the "comfy-couch" lady, either.
