When the nice folks at Scotiabank Place contacted me and asked if I would like to host a Wiggle ticket giveaway, I smiled. We are old-skool Wiggles fans around here. I had no idea how much the Fab Four in multicoloured jerseys had infiltrated the blog, though, until I searched for a few favourite posts and came up with FOUR PAGES (!) of search returns mentioning the Wiggles.

A few highlights:

  • Our first Wiggles concert review, where Anthony Wiggle gave the stink-eye to one of my boys.
  • Since I wrote it in late 2006, this post about CBS producing Rockstar: Wiggles has consistently gotten a dozen or more monthly visits.
  • Simon’s second birthday cake was a Wiggles cake, and since 2006 has been one of my most viewed pictures on Flickr.

And then there’s this classic piece of quality footage, one of my earliest YouTube uploads from April 2006 of Simon accompanying the Wiggles to “Do the Owl”:

All that to say, apparently we have a bit of a Wiggles fixation that has crossed into all my favourite social media platforms, and I’m more than happy to share the love with you in the form of a family four pack (4 tickets*) in the 100 level to see The Wiggles Wiggly Circus Live! at Scotiabank Place on October 27 at 2:30pm. You’ll also receive a copy of The Wiggles DVD β€œHot Potatoes – The Best of The Wiggles”.

Want to win? Simply leave me a comment telling me why you’d like to win in the comment section below. Please make sure you can attend the concert if you enter — it’s a Wednesday afternoon.

Here’s the fine print:

  1. The contest runs from October 11 to 15, 2010.
  2. The approximate value of the prize is $140.
  3. A winner will be selected from all entries using Random.org around noon on October 16, 2010.
  4. To enter, you must leave a comment with a valid e-mail address.
  5. I will provide your contact information to a representative from Scotiabank Place, who will arrange the delivery of the prize package directly with you.

Thanks to Scotiabank Place and the Wiggles for a fun giveaway opportunity!

Good luck!!

(*I know, not all families consist of four people. It irks me a bit, too!)

Edited to add: Congratulations to Karen of Virtually There, the very excited winner of the Wiggly Circus tickets and DVD. πŸ™‚

My daughter and nephew love the wiggles. It would blow there little 2 year old minds to see them live! And it would torment my brother with ear worms for days. A win-win!

We need to win! Not only is my son Max obsessed with the Wiggles but both my husband and I know every song and after watching every episode I don’t know who would be more excited at the concert – us or Max!!!

We are Wiggles fanatics in this house too. I am finally coming to terms that Sam has replaced my beloved Greg. We usually go to their concerts each year at Scotiabank Place but haven’t purchased our tickets yet for this tour. Winning tickets would be wonderful!!

This is a fab giveaway! My son (19 months old) is IN-LOVE with the Wiggles. He also stands in front of the TV and sings and dances along; and has since he was 5 months old. It is our Mom and Son time to dance and sing with the Wiggles and it’s one of my most cherished moments of every day.

18 Lisa G October 11, 2010 at 10:20 pm

What a WONDERFUL contest! My boys would be over the moon if we won!

19 Natalie October 12, 2010 at 5:41 am

The Wiggles have been a godsend over the last few years with my four year old triplets! This outing would be a total treat for them πŸ™‚

20 Julie October 12, 2010 at 7:54 am

I would be the “best aunt ever” if I could come up with Wiggles tix!!!!!

21 Karen at virtually there October 12, 2010 at 9:19 am

Oh man, I would love to win these. My girls are diehard Wiggles fans and have been since the oldest was two. The unfortunate reality is that we don’t have it in the budget to see them live as a one-salary family so winning would be such a wonderful gift for the girls.

22 Lida October 12, 2010 at 10:58 am

I’d love to win these to take three of my grandsons to it. I know they’d be thrilled!

23 Anonymous October 12, 2010 at 5:37 pm

My son is a huge Wiggles fan! We would LOVE to go to the concert and bring some flowers for Dorothy the Dinosaur. Would be thrilled to win!

24 Jill October 12, 2010 at 11:27 pm

My sweet 3 year old girl loves the Wiggles to death. We sing “Toot-Toot Chugga-Chugga Big Red Car” around the neighbourhood in her Walmart (bought) red car all the time. My sister and nieces live in Cairns, Australia and they send my 3 year old all kinds of Wiggles goodies.

Yes indeed, we’d love love love to see them live.

25 Shannon October 13, 2010 at 9:51 pm

Would love to win! Can’t afford to spend the money on the tickets so a free show would be right up our alley! Thanks for the chance!

26 Angela October 14, 2010 at 12:09 pm

We love the wiggles in our house – there songs are so catchy, even for mom and dad! Would love to see my kids faces at the concert!

27 Sarah October 15, 2010 at 11:51 am

What a treat to take the boys!

28 Chantal October 15, 2010 at 2:02 pm

Hope I am not to late to enter. My 5yo still loves the Wiggles and he would be tickled to be able to go. Also since I am on mat leave the mid afternoon show is a breeze for me! πŸ™‚
