Australian children’s group The Wiggles has been scrutinized for not including “boys’ skirts” in their latest costume package.
The band announced their new Emma Costumes for Everyone series on Wednesday. The packaging shows girls wearing skirts and trousers while boys only wear trousers.
Some parents have criticized the group for this, arguing that the product should include a skirt made specifically for boys.

Others said the packaging should have had at least one boy wearing a skirt to show it was okay for boys to do so.
“It would have been nice to show boys in skirts too,” wrote one parent on Instagram.
Another commented: ‘So excited! Even though my son asked for a rock, I think he comes to the concert in a rock, I don’t mind. ‚
“It would have been nice to show boys in skirts too,” added a third, while another replied, “My grandson still loves wearing the Emma dress.”

The wiggles are known to be inclusive and progressive when it comes to children wanting to wear clothes that are not normally associated with their gender.
In July 2019, Emma said it was “wonderful to see” boys dressing up as their characters in the audience at the band’s concerts.
“The boys wear bow ties and very interesting outfits, bow to shirts, bow in their shoes and in their hair. It’s crazy! , She said.

Two months earlier, Lachlan had posted a photo of himself on Instagram with a sign that said “Boys can be Emma”.
The positive message for transgender youth was widely praised by parents and members of the public at the time.
Last month, Lachlan announced that he and his fiancée, ballet dancer Dana Stephensen, had welcomed twin daughters.
Neither Lachlan nor Dana had given a hint they were expecting, which meant fans were completely taken by surprise with the announcement.
