Celebrating all things fun and festive, Hi-5’s brand new ‘Happy Holidays’ DVD has been released just in time for Christmas.
Join Stevie, Ainsley, Dayen, Mary and newest Hi-5 member, Tanika, as they party and play in the true Hi-5 way. The Christmas DVD features everything from Christmas elves and Santa workshops to wacky weddings and even a tropical pool party.
The DVD features Songs of the Week, It’s a Party, It’s Our Planet, Playtime and a Dance Lesson with Hi-5 plus highlights of Hi-5’s educational trip to Myanmar to visit the local kids with World Vision.
Hi-5 is one of world’s most loved and successful preschool children’s entertainment groups and has won three Logie Awards for Most Outstanding Children’s Program, five ARIA Awards for Best Children’s Album, five Australian DVD and Video Industry Awards, an APRA Award, an AMIA Award and a Helpmann Award. They have two Apollo Award Nominations for Best Music Composition for Hi-5 House Series 1 and 2.
We were lucky enough to get five minutes with Hi-5 so we asked them our five burning questions:
What has been your favourite fan moment?
Mary: We were doing a TV interview in the Philippines where the fans got to ask us any question they wanted. One little girl asked us to come to her house for dinner! It was so sweet!
What is your all-time favourite Hi-5 song to perform?
Ainsley: I love ‘Making Music’! It’s a really fun to rock out to and do your best air guitar!
How has being part of Hi-5 changed your life?
Stevie: It’s hard to put into words how much Hi-5 has changed my life but it really has. It’s been part of my life for nine years and it always will be even after I leave the group. I have met the most wonderful people, travelled the world, I’ve been on three trips with World Vision and experienced things I never would have if I didn’t join. It’s the best job in the world!
What’s the most difficult thing about being in Hi-5?
Dayen: I’d say being away from home for around nine months months of the year can be pretty hard. Even though I miss my dogs a lot, I wouldn’t change it for the world!
And what’s the best thing about being part of it?
Tanika: We get to sing, dance and play all day everyday and we’re all so close that it’s like travelling around with my brothers and sisters! The food is definitely the best part of travelling but the other cast members are the best things about being part of it all.
The new Hi-5 DVD is a great Christmas present for preschoolers and can be downloaded via Google Play for AUD$12.99 HD or AUD$9.99 SD. It is also available at all good retailers for $14.95 RRP.
