Candy buffets serve multiple purposes at your birthday party!
- You can use a candy buffet as your party favor, and a way of saying thank you to your guests.
- Add an extra pop to your decor when created to match your theme.
- Your Yo Gabba Gabba birthday cake and cupcakes looks great as the centerpiece to a candy buffet.
- Or they can just be considered an added treat for your guests!

Cute party favors and goodie bags to send home with guests from your Yo Gabba Gabba party!
A NEW, popular idea is to set out tiny gumball machines! We found these ones available at Celebrate Express. One reviewer named "Jeannious" said, "I ordered these for my son's Yo Gabba Gabba party. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! These are a chunky plastic and not poorly made at all. It's a nice size and an impressive little something extra for favors or just as party game prizes."
Here is an example of a how Rebecca set out her gumball machines:

Frequently Asked Questions:
We receive emails daily asking for advice on decorating and planning for a Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party.
Where can I find Yo Gabba Gabba decorations?
Yo Gabba Gabba decorations are now available! Check out our Merchandise Page or click on this graphic to start shopping!
Want to make your own decorations?
We recommend as your first step checking out the section on this page titled "Stories of Your Yo Gabba Gabba Parties". There you will find many real examples submitted by parents like you with their tips and tricks!
Or you can flip through our Party Decorations Gallery!
I want to hire someone to wear a Brobee/Foofa costume to my child's party. Where do I find a company that does that?
At this time, no one is licensed to appear at parties in a Yo Gabba Gabba costume. (Though we have suggested it to Yo Gabba Gabba since people ask this question so often!) We recommend purchasing an adult DJ Lance Rock costume and inviting a family member or friend to wear it to your party.
I don't have the time to make a Yo Gabba Gabba cake. Please help!
Please feel free to browse our cake gallery to get inspiration for your cake! If you feel like you don't have time or the skills to make a Yo Gabba Gabba cake, we suggest printing out pictures of the ones you like and taking them to a bakery. Discuss with a baker one-on-one what you envision for your cake. Be sure to print out pictures of Yo Gabba Gabba characters just in case they have never heard of the show and need a point of reference! Using a baker should not be very expensive, so call around and do a little price comparison!
My bakery says I need written permission in order for them to make a Yo Gabba Gabba cake. Why are some people able to get bakeries to do it for them, but not mine?
Some bakeries will do it, many will not. While it is a matter of copyright infringement, we have some excellent suggestions for you. First, consider getting a colorful cake and adding Yo Gabba Gabba characters onto it yourself. Second, at Celebrate Express they carry cute rings that you can place onto cupcakes. You can also have a bakery make you a red cake and add the details of Muno's face on your own, or get creative with store bought fondant! Don't despair... it just takes a little time and creativity!
We had a birthday party just recently and we want to share our photos! Where can we send them?
We are always thrilled to receive pictures of your Yo Gabba Gabba parties! And we know other parents appreciate the help they provide in giving them ideas for their child's birthday party.
To submit your photos and story, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you still have questions?
We encourage you to post any questions in our friendly Gabba Friends forums where many others are always willing to lend you their ideas! For example, if you're looking for advice on how to make something specific, or maybe you're in search of used party decorations, our forums are a great place to bounce ideas off of other parents who are all too happy to help out!
