Page retired in 2006 due to ill health and was replaced by understudy Sam Moran, but returned in 2012, replacing Moran.
At the end of 2012, Page, Cook, and Fatt retired, and were replaced by Gillespie, Pryce, and Watkins.
Cook and Fatt retained their shareholding in the group and all three continued to have input into its creative and production aspects.
In 1991, Field was inspired to create an album of children's music based upon concepts of early childhood education, and enlisted Cook, Page, and Fatt to assist him.
They began touring to promote the album, and became so successful, they quit their teaching jobs to perform full-time.
The group augmented their act with animal characters Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, and Wags the Dog, as well as the character Captain Feathersword, played by Paul Paddick since 1993.
They travelled with a small group of dancers, which later grew into a larger troupe.
The group's DVDs, CDs, and television programs have been produced independently since their inception.
