You’ve heard me mention the Yo Gabba Gabba Live! Tour a few times this summer and fall, and our family is gearing up to go to to finale in Dallas in December (in 3 weeks and 5 days, but who’s counting?). Our preschool-aged son is so excited, as he simply adores the characters. Even our 10 month old daughter can’t get enough of Yo Gabba Gabba. It’s funny to listen to our son trying to explain to the baby that we are going to see DJ Lance and the Gabba gang live tomorrow. I repeatedly tell him it is still a month away, but he doesn’t get the concept.
In case you didn’t know…
Yo Gabba Gabba is a sensation among kids and adults of all ages. The goal of the producers was to create a show in which parents could connect with their kids. It’s vibrant and fun with simple, practical life lessons (on topics such as sharing, trying new foods, cleanliness, greetings, making friends, germs, weather, and more) all set to cool, hip music. With unexpected popular celebrity guest appearances and some old school regulars (like hip-hop legend Biz Markie and Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh), YGG exposes kids to different generes of music from ska to indie rock.
My son loves music (that’s the understatement of the century). Most of the time, the usual kids songs don’t engage him. With the groovin’ vibe offered by Yo Gabba Gabba, he can really get movin’! It’s not your average (annyoing) Barney – it’s different than any kids show I’ve seen. I’ve watched every aired episode a multitude of times and still love it. I find myself singing some of the songs daily – as bedtime songs (“Little Baby”), fun songs to sing in the car (like “Pool Party”), or songs that teach a particular lesson we’re trying to reinforce (like “Don’t bite your friends”).
So don’t miss out on seeing this live tour!
