KNOWN to parents and children as the ex-Yellow Wiggle and Nick Jr's Play Along With Sam, Sam Moran is a true star of live children's entertainment.

In 2013, Sam premiered his solo television series, Play Along with Sam on Nick Jr.

This series sees Sam lead his young viewers on a playful journey through movement, music, letters, wordplay, imaginative games and problem solving.

With a young family of his own, and an adult-contemporary album available worldwide through Sony Music, Sam has entered a new chapter of his professional and personal life.

Three years on and Play Along With Sam is still one of Nick Jr's top rating programs, with the series' albums receiving two ARIA nominations and an ARIA for Best Children's Album.

In June 2013, Sam released a 20-track compilation of original songs and educational tunes from the new series of the same title, which debuted at number 1 on the Australian iTunes chart, and top 10 internationally.

The release earned Sam his first solo nomination at the ARIA awards in the Best Children's Album category. The award nomination added a gusto to Sam's earlier accolades, and was a celebration of Sam's 15-year career as a children's entertainer.

Bring the kids and join Sam for the second leg of his Play Along With Sam: Boo! Dress Up Party.
