Austin's Birthday Party

Laurie's picture

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!

Freddy and Pearl's Birthday Cakes

When I saw the Halloween costumes Samara made for her children, Freddy and Pearl, I peeked at their blog to find beautiful Yo Gabba Gabba birthday cakes! When I asked her about them, Samara shared this cool tip with us: She made the pictures on photoshop and took them in to BJ's (a store on the east coast) to have their bakery create the images onto these perfect cakes!

We bet her daughter was really excited and surprised to see Dad dressed as DJ Lance Rock to accompany her for a night of trick or treating! Notice the super sweet flower bag!

gratefulmama3's Birthday Party Invitation

Laurie's picture

We received the nicest email from Gabba Friend, gratefulmama3! She shares with us the party invitation she made for her son, Jonah, as well as some incredibly kind words regarding the content shared among our Gabbafriends community!

gratefulmama3 writes:

"First, I'd like to say how much I love and appreciate your site! I love all the things you post on there! It's so neat to see the different types of creative things people come up with and share! I also love the fact that now I know which stores to shop at in order to find Yo Gabba Gabba gear! Just today, we bought my two sons (Jonah 3yrs and Ethan 1 1/2) some sweatshirts and long sleeve tees at Walmart, in preparation for Jonah's 3rd birthday coming up this weekend.

"After reading Izze's mom's post about where to download Yo Gabba Gabba clipart, I got the creative inspiration to try and make a digi scrap birthday invite myself. I had been collecting different types of digi scrap backgrounds and such for quite some time now, but never did a single thing with them. But now I had the perfect opportunity to see what I could come up with. This is the final result of the email invite I sent out to our family members. I am so thankful for people like Izze's mom who are kind enough to take the time to share information that will help other parents make their child's birthday a special Yo Gabba Gabba birthday. Thanks again!"

Laurie's picture

Earlier today published this interview with members of the band Taking Back Sunday. Here we see lead singer Adam Lazzara, and new guitarist Matt Fazzi, talk about projects in the works, including a possible appearance on Yo Gabba Gabba! At the very least, it's a very nice shout out to Yo Gabba Gabba!

We wrote up a transcript of what was said, but you can click on the image to watch the video for yourself:

Samara sent us these great photos of her kids, Freddy and Pearl, dressed as their favorite Yo Gabba Gabba characters!

Samara also sent us this picture of her and Freddy meeting DJ Lance Rock and Brobee at the NY Times Children's concert at Columbia University a couple weeks ago. She tells, "Freddy was a little shy but gave DJ Lance a book of his drawings, who was really cool."

Javier's Plex Costume

Laurie's picture

We always love hearing about how much your kids love Yo Gabba Gabba and the lengths you've gone through to create their dream costumes and birthday party!

This Plex costume was the brilliant creation of Christina, after her son Javier wanted to be Plex for Halloween! We especially like the idea of using gray sweats underneath the yellow vest!

Christina writes:

"My son Javier wanted to be Plex for Halloween sooo bad but I discovered that there weren't any Yo Gabba Gabba costumes available for sale anywhere, not even on the internet. So the only choice I had was to make his costume. The costume was a hit, we received a great deal of compliments from adults and children alike. It was a lot of fun making his costume and he loved it... next is his birthday and guess what the theme will be...Yo Gabba Gabba."

Yay! We can't wait to see your birthday photos, Christina!

Kali's Foofa Costume

Laurie's picture

We're still receiving lots of pictures and stories about your Yo Gabba Gabba Halloween costumes! It's amazing how popular the theme was this year considering there were no official costumes available for retail sale!

This darling Foofa costume was sent in by Alesia when her daughter, Kali, had her heart absolutely set on being Foofa for Halloween!

Alesia writes:

My four year old daughter Kali about a year ago started watching Yo Gabba Gabba, and immediately knew she wanted to be Foofa for Halloween the next year! So never giving up on that fact, I went ahead and tried to put something together for her and these pictures are what I came up with. She absolutely LOVED it the first time she put it on, and thought she looked exactly like Foofa!
