Planning a Yo Gabba Gabba Toddler Birthday Party? You Totally Need These Balloons

Updated on July 1, 2014

I could tell you that my toddler is majorly obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba, but I'm not sure that "obsessed" is a strong enough word.  My son falls asleep wrapped up in a Gabba blanket, holding his stuffed Muno and Plex. When he wakes up, he quickly crams his breakfast into his mouth so that he can watch DJ Lance and all of his brightly colored friends dance across the TV screen. 

My son celebrated his 2nd birthday party earlier this month, and I'm pretty sure you can guess what his party's theme was.  Yep, that's right: He had a Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party.  I thought he'd get super excited about his cake, but he could care less about that.  The thing that made his day?  These balloons.

When I saw these balloons on Amazon, my first thought was, "Seriously, $6 for some balloons?!"  My second thought was, "OMG, my son would freaking LOVE these".  Obviously, thought #2 won, and we are now the proud owners of several half-deflated balloons left over from last week's toddler celebration. 

I have a medical condition that causes me to get dizzy easily, so I had my 11 year old blow up the balloons.  She was able to fill them with air in just a few minutes, and once full, the balloons did not pop easily.

One thing that impressed me: The pictures on the balloons did not smudge or fade, even after they were gently caressed (okay, grabbed roughly) by numerous kids under the age of 4.  They still look great today, and it's been a week.  I'm also impressed that my kids only popped 2 of them.

I'm not going to lie to you.  There are cheaper party supplies you can buy, but why bother?  Nothing beats the joy of tossing colorful pieces of latex adorned with Brobee and Muno's faces around the living room.

To save money, I mixed some regular balloons from the dollar store with the Yo Gabba Gabba balloons.  My son loved them all!

My toddlers love this Yo Gabba Gabba birthday song by the Ting Tings. I have to admit that I even think it's kinda catchy myself, although I always think of that "That's not my name! That's not my name!" song when I hear anything else by them.
