Hi-5 is an Australian television show for children that started in 1999. The members of Hi-5 are Nathan, Kellie, Charli, Tim and Kathleen. Hi-5 can also be known as a pop music group for young children. They sing songs, dance and act. Hi-5 have recently released an album called Boom Boom beat! The album has 20 tracks. Hi-5 is very popular with children but also with many other age groups.

Overall, the show has been designed to have a very bright and happy feel to it. The show is aired once a week on Australian television. All the members of Hi-5 had been involved in television before the show had started. They had done commercials and small roles in other television shows. But Hi-5 has definitely been their most successful venture. They have won two Logie Awards (Awards that are voted by the Australian public) for Most Outstanding Children’s Program.

Some of Hi-5’s songs:

  • "Friends"
  • "Rain Rain"
  • "Three Wishes"
  • "Celebrate"
  • "Robot One"
  • "Hi-5 theme song"
