The Wiggles are selling their Big Red Car to raise money for research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

The red Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet, immortalised in the song Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga Big Red Car, will be up for grabs on eBay for 10 days from December 7, with the new owner to be announced ahead of The Wiggles' final Sydney shows on their Celebration Tour.

Blue Wiggle Anthony Field, whose niece died from SIDS at the age of eight months in 1988, said the Wiggles has supported the charity SIDS and Kids since the group began 21 years ago.

"It's great that ... we have the opportunity to give our biggest fans the chance to own something that's so special to us," he said in a statement.

"It's only fitting that the money raised from this auction go directly to SIDS and Kids."
