Fresh from dropping their latest banger "Social Distancing," The Wiggles have teamed up with Big W to release a brand new podcast for youngsters in iso.

Titled "Here to Help," and hosted by members of The Wiggles, the eight-part series has been designed to keep toddlers and pre-schoolers entertained and engaged - and help parents retain what's left of their sanity. 

Meredith Drake, BIG W's Category Manager for Books, said: "We've chosen now to launch the podcast as more Australian parents need new ways to keep the children entertained and what better way to do that than enabling children to discover the joy of audio storytelling."

The new podcast covers a range of topics from safety in and around the home, understanding feelings and being kind, the importance of maintaining a healthy diet, washing your hands - and having fun. 

"The Wiggles are proud to partner with Australia's most loved and trusted family store, BIG W, on the podcast edition of The Wiggles, Here to Help book series," says Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins. "The series provides children with access to an engaging new audio experience of eight exclusive educational books which provide families with important information toddlers need to know as they grow." 

For research purposes, I pressed play on Emma's reading of "How are you feeling, Wiggles?" and I'm not going to lie, I felt an emotion.

"Listen to your feelings, what are they trying to tell you?" Emma says. "However you are feeling, talk to someone who cares for you. They will know how to help."

That's a lesson we can all learn right now.
