Ashley created this Plex costume for her five-year-old son for Halloween. We love the creative use of materials used for even the tiniest detail as we note the black screen with white eyes painted on, the yellow Crocs, the painted styrofoam and yellow rubber gloves!
Though we are featuring this as a Halloween costume, this great entry from Jody came to us just in the nick of time for Christmas! We loved the advice Jody shares with us, as parents have been writing in to tell us that they would like to make a DJ Lance Rock costume for their children for the holidays. On her blog, Jody gives important and helpful sewing advice for those who would like to take on this project for an inexpensive, yet cherished gift that your children will love throughout the year!

We spotted this awesome sock monkey created by Etsy user "mostlymonkeys", perfect for the collector of all things Brobee!
Wouldn't you love to WIN this Brobee Monkey? Yes? Then head on over to Lisa's (aka mostlymonkeys) blog, Two Lovelies, and enter for your chance to win!
Laura sent in this great photo of this Brobee birthday cake she made for her grandson, Allen!
Laura tells us that she used store-bought lettering, which works really well as it matches the fonts used on Yo Gabba Gabba (ie the kids who like to dance!). All of Allen's guests loved the cake and knew exactly who Brobee is!
Mary Pat's mother, Charlotte, sent us these incredible party ideas from Mary Pat's 2nd birthday! We were stoked to see that awesome hand-knitted Brobee sweater the birthday girl got to wear on her special day. In fact, the entire party was incredibly clever and unique! Oh, and check out that huge smile in the first picture; little children are so honest!
We Celebrated Mary Pat's 2nd birthday YO GABBA GABBA STYLE!
We invited everyone to her "Yo Party Party" with homemade personalized invitations.
Brobees-Big-Sister is a whiz at making cute stuffed plush dolls. She handmade this sweet Gooble doll using heavy-duty vinyl fabric with felt features.
In this second picture, we see her daughter, Brianna, holding Gooble.
You may remember seeing Jonah's awesome birthday invitation his mother, gratefulmama3, made for him. We were excited to finally receive photos and the story filling us in on how amazing Jonah's party turned out to be!
Gabba Friend, Wendy, made this great doll-sized replica of Gooble, the crying ghost on Yo Gabba Gabba. She has shared with us easy instructions on how we can make our own!
I decided to make my own Gooble doll after seeing the Gooble doll on Yo Blogga Blogga.
I used a onesie that my daughter doesn't fit in anymore. I sketched out a quick Muno figure and cut out the fabric. Then I just hand stitched it all around except by the legs, I filled it up with cotton and stitched it shut. Then I just grabbed a black sharpie for the eyes and a red one for the mouth... and razzle dazzle! Ta! Da!
You may have heard this sweet ditty titled "Come and Play", performed by The Clientele, aired as an animated jingle/"Jingalong" during an episode of the new second season of Yo Gabba Gabba. We received a tip that if you register for The Clientele's official forums, you can download a copy of your own MP3!
Alasdair MacLean, lead singer of The Clientele, posted in the forums about his experience working with Yo Gabba Gabba:
Wendy made this great DJ Lance Cake over the weekend. We especially appreciate the huge grin that DJ Lance Rock is famous for!
Wendy tells us that upon seeing the cake, her two-year old son, Teddy said, "Wow DJ Lance!" Now that's adorable!
Jonah's parents sent in this incredible Plex costume along with this fantastic story about how it came to be!
Our family loves Yo Gabba Gabba! This year, since Jonah was having a Halloween parade at school, Mom and Dad made several trips to Ikea and a few craft stores to put together this cool Plex costume. Using a laundry hamper, a hat box, some yellow foam sheets and a couple of other things around the house, I think we pulled it off pretty well. Extra credit to Dad who was insistent on getting the helmet to look close to the real thing.
Our 4 year old was able to get some mileage out of the costume as we celebrated Halloween for a few weeks at local events around town. We were happy to see that many were able to identify his costume. A fellow Yo Gabba Gabba fan told us about the show on Nov.1st at Amoeba Records. We had a blast!!!! Mom and Dad had just as much fun as the kids. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take photos with the cast, but it was by far, the best way to end the Halloween season. Hope to see you again soon!!
Austin recently had his Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party, and his parents made for him this darling Brobee cake! We love the use of the ruffly frosting tip they used to get the added dimension in the cake. According to Austin's mom, Pam, even the inside of the cake was green!

Ellie's mom, Amanda sent in this sweet Foofa costume she had made using the great community on Etsy! She says that in their home, they are such dedicated fans, they watch Yo Gabba Gabba several times a day!
So I was watching Noggin with Teddy and the video came up! I recorded it on my camera... not awesome quality, but I wanted to share it with all you in case you hadn't seen it.
