Last year the kids and I were fortunate enough to go see Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! for Emma’s 4th birthday. We had a good time and they talked about it for days afterward. So when we were given the opportunity to go see them again this year for Emma’s 5th birthday we eagerly said YES!.
This year the show as being held at the Kansas City Music Hall. The minute we walked in and sat down we knew this was a much better venue. Last year the seats were small and close together (our knees were crammed in). The seats at the Kansas City Music Hall were ample with plenty of leg room.
We excitedly waited for the show, posed for pictures and played with our light sticks.
The kids were super excited when the show began. It opened in a very similar fashion to last years show… DJ Lance showed up on the tv screen… talked a little and then phased onto the stage to appear in real life. I was happy to see Emma and Ethan so involved and when it came time to shout Yo Gabba Gabba! to bring them to life they were all set to YELL!
Make sure you take a peek at the video below… you will see the surprise the kids got when they yelled Yo Gabba Gabba! loud enough!
The first half of the show included several skits that included our involvement. Emma and Ethan got their sillies out, did the wiggle wiggle wiggle stop and a couple of others. There was plenty of out of seat enjoyment… then it was intermission. Just like last year, we could text a message in and it scrolled across the screen. Emma was thrilled to see her birthday message!
I wasn’t sure how Emma and Ethan would react to the rappers skits. Last year it was a little long and lost their attention. This year was much cuter and the audience was asked to participate. Although they didn’t know who those gentlemen were, the kids had a good time with it.
Some of our favorite parts were filled with confetti. I think I counted 4 times we were showered with confetti… once we were covered in it (check out the video). Because our seats were on the floor in row M, we had some great exposure to that excitement.
The last part of the show was exciting and fun. The kids danced, sang and played in the snow (yep… check out the video). Then it was time for it to end…
You know they enjoyed themselves and had a great time when… well… Emma cried her heart out because the show was over. Yes, seriously. She was a huge teary mess. She wasn’t the only one either. I saw at least two other children leaving down our aisle that were in tears also. Ethan was handling the disappointment a little better, but they were both sad that it had to end. (check out the photo with Muno… see Emma’s red face? poor baby…)
We were one of the last out of our section, so we let the kids gather some of the longer confetti to distract themselves from the fact the show was over. On the way back to the car Ethan decided to use it as a leash. So cute…
