Starting at 7 p.m. Friday in the Children's Resource Center on the grounds of the Buffalo Zoo. Presented by Joshua Ginsberg of the Wildlife Conservation Society for $12. Students $8.
2. Start with four awesome Aussies in red, blue, yellow and purple. Add a green dinosaur who loves roses, a friendly pirate, a happy dog and a musical octopus.
Mix well with music and movement -- not to mention an educational twist -- and the result is The Wiggles, the hot children's entertainment group.
