Explanation: Rugrats is an American animated television series, produced by Klasky-Csupo, Inc. for Nickelodeon. The series ran from 1991 to 1994, and again from 1997 to 2004. The show is about how babies and young children view life and perceive the events happening around them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugrat
Rugrats in this context is a way of refering to the children, who probably watched a lot of Rugrats on TV.
I guess you should choose a term depending on the country your translation if for.
I sometimes refer to my children as my "hungry caterpillars" (always asking for food!!)
