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!

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.

I mean, the freaking font is identical!

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

Not to mention, there were at least seven rainbow layers inside.
Notice the character cupcakes too?
