The Yo Gabba Gabba Generation
I remember the first morning my husband walked in the room and Addison and I were fixated on the TV. He came over to see what we were watching so intently. He said, "you guys aren’t really watching this; are you? What the hell is it?" I remember thinking the same thing as I stare intently at the TV.
I had just stumbled on the show. Addison was nine months at the time. She loved it. From that moment Gabba became a favorite. In fact, it was the only show that would keep her attention for the full half hour. So Yo Gabba Gabba became my favorite.
While at Target one day we discovered the Gabba Friend plushies. She was in love. We had to collect them all. Including their larger speaking counter parts. Then the silly balls. The boom box learning laptop. The books and DVD’s. The Plex train and Plex car with all the friends to travel along. Now that she is potty trained; the undies- which are so stinkin’ cute on her- just love them.
Never did I imagine that she would be hooked.
Yo Gabba has been a part of your daily schedule. Seriously, outings are scheduled around the show. We look forward to new episodes and dancey dance time (we includes mommy). Now Jackson is hooked. He has been watching since five days old. When I need a mommy moment, to make dinner or run the trash out, I know if Yo Gabba Gabba is on they will be entertained for the half hour.
Because my daughter is so in love with Yo Gabba it seemed appropriate to plan a Gabba themed party for her third birthday and the gifts to go along. They have some pretty awesome toys. Gabba LIVE here we come! And Foofa bounce-on; well I am just going to be the best mommy ever… beat that Santa Claus!
I stumbled across the ultimate fan-site call Gabba Friends; www.gabbafriends.com
There are so many amazing ideas. If your children are into it as much as mine, you should have a look at the site.
Repeat after me: Yo Gabba Gabba Yo!
