Yo Gabba Gabba Came to Pittsburgh!

Sometimes things are even cooler than you imagined.  Tonight we went to see the “Yo Gabba Gabba!, Get the Sillies Out”.  Yo Gabba Gabba! is a children’s show that airs on Nick Jr. To say that my toddler likes “Yo Gabba Gabba!” would be a major understatement. She loves it in a major way. Like we used to say on the playground, she loves is so much that “she wants to MARRY it!”

Yo Gabba Gabba! Got the Party Started!

I didn’t really understand the appeal until tonight.
I work Full-Time. So, I miss a lot of TV time with my daughter. I think that I had only seen the show a few times. I didn’t understand how the combination of music, colors and energy are absolutely infectious! 
However, tonight, I became a believer.  Unlike Barney, Yo Gabba Gabba! is cool!

DJ Lance and The “Yo Gabba Gabba!” people came up with the perfect mix of kid-friendly fun that works for adults. The show was fast paced. The music was bumping. They even tour with Biz Markie who rapped and did the beat box! I don’t know if this is what he envisioned when he was rocking the house circa 1995.  All I know is that having quality rap music at a kids' show was genius! Parents and kids were dancing in the aisles!

Awhile ago, a friend with older children said, I can't wait until your daughter gets into "Yo Gabba Gabba!". I didn't understand what she meant then, but now I know. And the truth is, I'm kind of into it to. Don't judge me! :-)
 My new mantra: Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle!

Bright Colors + Cool Music = A Great Evening! 


Seeing how much the toddler loved the show made it all worth it!
