Ever since we discovered Yo Gabba Gabba! over a year ago they have been shown in our house at least once a day. Bro Bro monkey is even starting to watch the show. At first, Dadda monkey and I found the show fairly bizarre, but we soon learned how addicting the songs were and noticed the really great messages the show conveys to their pint size audience. My daughter is often caught singing songs like 'There's a Party in my Tummy', 'Keep Trying', or 'Try it, You'll Like It'. For those who know about my daughter's speech problems, the fact that she's singing these songs is great for more than one reason. I even did a post about Yo Gabba Gabba's influence in our lives back in March.
Last year I didn't know about Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! until they had already come through our area so this year I made sure to buy our tickets as soon as I heard they'd be in San Antonio. December 9th, the Monkey family will be going to see Yo Gabba Gabba! Live and I can't wait to see the kids reactions when they realize what we're going to see. You can visit www.yogabbagabbalive.com for more information on the show including when and where their performances will be. The show is supposed to be about an hour long and, unlike most live shows, will be careful about hurting your little one's ears. There will even be surprise special guests at the live show. We honestly can't wait until we go and as an added bonus, by December I think even Bro Bro will be aware of what he'll be watching. There's going to be a party in our city and we've made sure we're going to be there.
Yo Gabba Gabba! has also been generous enough to provide one Mommy 2 Monkey's reader with a prize pack. This includes the Yo Gabba Gabba! Clubhouse DVD - released on June 15 and features performances by musical guests Erykah Badu, The Killers, Jimmy Eat World and more AND Yo Gabba Gabba!: Music is Awesome Volume 2, which is a compilation of songs from Season I, II, and III. The CD was released August 31, timed with the launch of the live tour, KIA Motors Presents YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE! THERE'S A PARTY IN MY CITY.

I have to confess I'm jealous of the winner. While I'm typing this post, my daughter is peering over my shoulder with a big smile on her face, looking at the pictures, and saying 'Yo Gabba'. Sorry YGG, we've dropped the last part of your name.
