UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ, April 24, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The World's Premiere Children's Entertainment Group The Wiggles are proud to announce the launch of their very first interactive online world http://www.WiggleTime.com. Created specifically for preschoolers and their parents, the website will go live nationwide on Friday, April 24th.
WiggleTime.com is designed to be a virtual world that provides young children with a safe online environment to learn and play. It creates the opportunity for today's parent to introduce their child to the Internet without the risk of them communicating with strangers and is also completely free of advertisements.
"We wanted to take our Wiggles Fan Club to another level. We just needed to make sure we were going to be able to provide children with an environment that was exciting, fun, educational and safe. WiggleTime.com certainly has all of the right ingredients to provide children with a fantastic Wiggles experience" - Anthony Field (BlueWiggle).
Staying true to The Wiggles philosophy of "education through entertainment", WiggleTime.com acts as an early childhood developmental tool for both toddlers and their parents. Each game played on WiggleTime.com contains cognitive, physical and social elements to help benefit the pre-schooler. It also doubles as an educational resource center for parents to monitor their child's development and be kept up to date with the most recent parenting news.
WiggleTime.com offers an interactive environment enabling preschool children to explore, play and learn with the use of familiar Wiggles themes, destinations and characters. Enjoying Wiggle Time is as simple as jumping into the Big Red Car, buckling your seat belt, and toot-toot chugga chugging down the road to visit some of your favorite Wiggle destinations including Wigglehouse, Dorothy's House, Wag's Kennel, Captain Feathersword's SS Feathersword, or Henry's Underwater World.
The Wiggles' Early Childhood Consultant, Dr. Kathleen Warren contributed to the site's development as the educational advisor to ensure that WiggleTime.com provides pre-schoolers with legitimate and high quality learning materials. Warren's expertise helped structure and guide the educational principles embedded within WiggleTime.com.
"I was delighted to have worked with The Wiggles on this site," said Dr. Warren. The Wiggles are aware that children learn best through play and always approach their work from the perspectives of children. Wiggle Time is an excellent example of this."
The majority of the games found on WiggleTime.com have been designed to be played in stages that progressively get more challenging as the child learns. Each time they complete a game they are rewarded with virtual toys that they not only get to keep but play with as well! In addition to games and activities, WiggleTime.com will also offer preschoolers with a series of video clips on a month-to-month basis.
WiggleTime.com is also parent-friendly. Parents will receive a monthly report that informs them of how well their son or daughter has progressed on the site. They will also have access to message boards where they may socialize with other parents and exchange child rearing advice. In addition, parents will also have access to premium promotional offers, competitions, merchandise discounts and presale Wiggles tickets! The parent's section of the website will be protected by password to prevent children gaining easy access.
Wiggles fans will be happy to know that they can register and experience WiggleTime.com absolutely free. In order to maximize the full potential of WiggleTime.com, costs only a small subscription fee per month - under USD$6 - for premium access to Wiggletime.com for up to four children on the one account!
Registration for WiggleTime.com is quick and easy. There are a range of subscription options, including a special UNICEF subscription plan that teaches children social responsibility, and unlocks a new destination and game, from which USD$1.50 per month (during the term of the subscription) will be donated to a UNICEF project to help the world's most vulnerable children.
