I am kind of a party planning fanatic. Yes, in my spare time when I’m not, you know blogging or being a Mom, I like to pretend I’m an expert party planner.
Well, planning 2 parties a year probably doesn’t make me an expert, but I sure do enjoy doing it! And this year, for my little girl’s 2nd Birthday, I planned her a Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party!
I know what you’re thinking…
Is Yo Gabba Gabba still on TV?
Turns out, it is! You can find reruns of this vintage show from time to time. You can also find plenty of Youtube videos for your kiddos to enjoy.
Back when we threw this party in 2014, the theme went from strictly Yo Gabba Gabba to incorporating lots of colors, since the show itself is so colorful.
Expert Party Planning Tip: If you’re on a budget, incorporating colors and not just themed items is a great way to save money.
I had such a fun time putting my take on the characters and making party foods and games to celebrate my daughter’s favorite colorful television show, Yo Gabba Gabba from Nick Jr!
Let’s start with the Birthday Girl herself, shall we?
Yo Gabba Gabba is colorful and over the top, so to make her feel super special on her big day, she wore a rainbow tutu. It matched her Yo Gabba Gabba shirt perfectly!
The next best thing to the Birthday Girl is the Party Food, right!?
I planned to have a food representing each of the 5 Yo Gabba Gabba main characters. So, who are the Yo Gabba Gabba characters?
Muno is the tall red character with one eye. I prefer to think of Muno as the leader of Yo Gabba Gabba.
These chocolate dipped pretzels were a perfect match for Muno! I simply dipped them in red chocolate melts and added a candy eyeball.
Foofa was always my girls’ favorite Yo Gabba Gabba character. She’s bubbly, pink, and looks like a flower!
These Foofa’s Fluff Flowers were made from marshmallows dipped in pink candy melts and topped with a yellow jelly bean!
Plex Mix, instead of Chex Mix, was a total hit!
Plex is the yellow robot characters that always has the cool moves.
I have to admit that Toodee was always my favorite Yo Gabba Gabba character.
They were all happy, but Toodee seemed especially joyful, which is why I thought Toodee’s Fruity Kabobs were the perfect idea!
Last but not least, Brobee is the green, fuzzy Yo Gabba Gabba character that is probably most famous for having a party in his tummy.
So we partied Yo Gabba Gabba style with Brobee’s Cookies – which were simply nutter butter cookies with smiley faces painted on with icing.
While the Etsy shopped I ordered from is no longer around, I found these adorable Yo Gabba Gabba printable party decorations that would fit the theme great.
I always use the printables for even more items – like the cupcake toppers, water bottle labels, and I put them on inexpensive bottles of bubbles for party favors!
Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party Games
We played 2 games with party guests – Pin the Eye on Muno, which was actually just tape since most party guests were under 3!
My husband drew Muno on a posterboard and we colored him red. The eyeballs were just made out of cardstock. It was a simple game that the kids loved.
We also did a Bean Bag Toss into a Brobee decorated bucket with Yo Gabba Gabba Bean Bags that I made with iron-on transfers!
When it was time for our guests to go home, they each picked a Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party Favor Bag and filled it with fun party favors, including…
Small bags of homemade play dough that were topped with a treat bag topper from my Yo Gabba Gabba party printables. I love this homemade easy play dough recipe – it’s so soft and easy to make!
They also each took a bottle of bubbles, decorated with Moreaya’s Party Stickers and an Animal Crackers box that’s made to look like the Yo Gabba Gabba Boom Box!
Seriously, this was my favorite DIY from this birthday party and I’m sharing the Yo Gabba Gabba Boombox Printable with you!
Just click the image above for a printable version! You may have to adjust sizing a bit to make them fit your boxes perfectly.
It took some researching, but I finally found those small Animal Cracker boxes on Amazon.
While I can’t seem to find anywhere to stream Yo Gabba Gabba right now, I’m always hoping it comes back because it’s such a fun and positive show for kids to enjoy.
