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.

"Sudden infant death syndrome is a cause that's extremely close to our hearts," he said.

"My niece Bernadette Field died from SIDS at the age of eight months in 1988 so SIDS and Kids is a charity we've supported since we started out 21 years ago."
