IT'S the toot toot chugga chugga Big Red Car that made them famous and it could soon be parked in your driveway.

The Wiggles - three-quarters of whom are due to retire next month - have decided to sell their prized "skivvy red" Volkswagen Beetle cabriolet used for promotional appearances on eBay to raise money for the SIDS and Kids charity.

Blue Wiggle Anthony Field, who is staying on in the four-piece, said the charity was very special to the group.
