Discloser. My family and I have been provided with access to Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! All opinions are my own.
I’m pretty sure that Yo Gabba Gabba is the very first show that Mike and Malone watched together. I mildly remember us arguing about screen time and toddlers. Eventually, I realized how awesome Yo Gabba Gabba was and got on board with it.
Yo Gabba Gabba has been in our house for quite awhile. We’ve gone through seasons where it is all we watch and seasons where we let it go for a bit.
Here are 10 reasons why we love Yo Gabba Gabba.
1. It is developmentally appropriate. The scenes in the show don’t scroll and cut a thousand times a minute. The language they use is crafted perfectly for their target audience.
2. It strays a way from traditional gender stereotypes.
3. It encourages movement and dance in every episode.
4. It is written for kids, but the writers keep the grown ups in mind too.
5. Yo Gabba Gabba tackles universal topics such as inclusion, bullying, and friendship with grace and ease.
6. The characters are flawed and held accountable for their actions by their friends.
7. The world the characters live in is rich and full of diveristy.
8. The music is fantastic.
9. There is nothing morally explicit spoken about or suggested. It is good clean wholesome fun!
10. The show welcomes a variety of guests from different backgrounds and is diverse.
I have heard amazing things about the live touring show, but we’ve never had a chance to attend. We are so excited that they are coming to Boston later on this month and even more excited to bring you a discount on tickets!
