If you’re a parent to a child in the under 4 years set then chances are, you know of that which is the Yo Gabba Gabba phenomenon. We’re huge fans of it in our household. Our daughter’s face lights up every time she hears the first notes of the theme song as does my husbands when DEVO’s Mark Mothersbaugh comes on to give on-screen art lessons. Me? I’m a sucker for the Dancey-Dance feature and guest appearance by bands like The Ting Tings and Weezer. Our boys pretend they’re too old for the show, but we’ve caught them secretly watching Tony Hawk showing how to oli on his skateboard. Shhhh, don’t tell.
