"Don't bite your friends"

I seem to spend so much of my day watching Yo Gabba Gabba with my 9 month old that I thought it was about time I wrote a post all about it. Take this morning for example, Ive been up with him since 4:30 and I think we have got through about 6 episodes so far while we've been playing. It was so difficult to find something colourful for backing noise that didn't involve characters making stupid noises like the Teletubbies.

I  think its a really great show for kids but there's bits in there for the adults too. Some of my favorite bands have been on there, Jimmy Eat World, Weezer, Band of Horses, Taking Back sunday and many more. Plus some of my new music to listen to is because of bands I've heard on the show.

The Aquabats are featured a few times throughout the show with paintings of the band members on the wall in other sketches but there's no surprise there seeing as the lead singer is the co-creator of the show.

The most watched episode in the house is "New Friends" but this is because everyone loves Jack Black, he's really rocking that orange jumpsuit.

My little one always looks most interested when Biz Markie does his 'beat of the day' i think he likes the crazy noises. (haha he just came on the telly and my son stopped what he was doing to look), Apart from the bands ive been quite impressed by some of the quests that have been on there, i was quite shocked to see Tony Hawk Skating and Mos Def as Super Mr Superhero.

The toys are a bit of a pain to get hold of as there's not much choice of things that have been released in this country but luckily were off to florida in a few months so ill be taking full advantage for toys for the boys (and myself of course). Being a huge fan of lego in the house i think my first YGG purchases will be the Mega Bloks sets for when the little one is a tad older.

Any way i will leave you with this very important message "Don't bite your friends"!!!
