TakingOff!(Album)

Taking Off! is a Wiggles album released on February 1st, 2013. It nominated the 2013 ARIA Music Awards for Best Children's Album.

Production

It took about 8 days for the current Wiggles, Anthony Field, Lachlan Gillespie, Simon Pryce, Emma Watkins, to record 21 songs such as Do the Propeller! and Peanut Butter for this album. A Behind the Scenes clip shows The Wiggles recording their song Emma (With The Bow In Her Hair) while another shows Simon, Emma, and Lachy recording their vocals on Get Ready to Wiggle. 3 months later, they recorded 7 more songs such as I've Got My Glasses On! and Baby Keep Smiling, which makes 29 altogether. Unfortunately, when Watkins changed her hair to pigtails instead of a bun, the Wiggles had to release 20 songs instead. This caused the 6 songs not to be released for another year, due to overreaching early childhood education, although one, I Stamp, ended up on Pumpkin Face while another, Roll the Acrobats, ended up on Wiggle House.
