Lovely, Love Some Yo Gabba Gabba

July 8, 2011

Those crazy kids behind Yo Gabba Gabba had me when I first saw a “ska-toon” with music from GOGO13 and Alex Desert of Hepcat.  My girl wasn’t even a year-old yet but we watched the show a lot.  


Granted, some episodes are harder to tolerate than others – especially if you’ve seen them over and over (read: Halloween! dvd).  But, you can’t deny that they sometimes feature some really great music (and musicians…more on that in a minute).


A full blown Gabba obsession broke out amongst our toddler friends.  Forget Barney, we were attending extravagant and fabulous YGG themed parties!


A special party guest: PLEX!

Another friend brainstormed for months for her daughter’s 4th Gabba themed party.  She had ideas for miles.  We (or, the kids) played “There’s a Party in my Tummy” beanbag toss, they crafted “I Like Bugs” bug houses, did a photo shoot with a life-sized Foofa, and got to pretend to be DJ Lance Rock.  Check out the yummy goodies from this party.  All made by my friend’s mom.  And insanely delicious.

Bats AKA PB&J sandwiches

Brobee veggie platter

Ants made from Nutter Butters and black licorice

No Gabba detailed spared.
I mean, the freaking font is identical!

Brobee Watermelon centerpiece.
My friend probably still has this somewhere because she has a thing about throwing things away that have a face.

Muno and DJ Lance pretzel sticks
Look at the detail on this cake!
Not to mention, there were at least seven rainbow layers inside.
Notice the character cupcakes too?
How could you eat this?
DJ Lance cupcakes!







Last November, I took our girl to see the Yo Gabba Gabba Live in Your City tour.  A total blast – for me too – to dance around to The Aquabats and meet Leslie Hall.  But the biggest thrill – and I mean THRILL – was to see my future second husband, Dave Grohl doing the Dancey-Dance.

I love all of these! I’ve been searching the web trying to find ideas for my son’s first birthday party in June. I was just wondering what you used to make the bat sandwiches. They are so adorable! Thanks! :)
