Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment that adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smart device.

You can dance with The Wiggles using Safari on an Apple device (iPhone 8 or iPad 4 or newer), or Chrome on an Android device (Samsung S9 or newer).

We tried to cater for as many devices as possible but older devices weren’t built for this technology. You will have to let the browser access your camera, so make sure you accept that when it prompts you.

With all new and emerging technology, there’s sometimes some bugs. Here are some tips:

  • Try refreshing or restarting the browser – that often does the trick!
  • Make sure you’re using Safari on Apple devices (iPhone 8 or iPad 4 or newer), or Chrome on Android devices (Samsung S9 or newer)
  • When prompted, let the browser access your camera
  • Turn off screen lock
  • Make sure the mute button isn’t on
  • Check your internet connection – internet speed will affect your experience and download capacity so make sure you have a decent connection or use Wi-Fi. 
  • Check out the ‘How To’ videos.

This augmented reality experience isn’t available on a desktop computer, only smart phones and tablets, iPhone 8 or iPad 4 or newer and Samsung S9 or newer.

This augmented reality experience won’t work with the front facing camera on your device, it only works only the external camera.

Make sure your phone isn’t on silent mode – this is an easy mistake to make! If that doesn’t work we recommend to change the song or refresh the browser.
