My granddaughter is infatuated with Yo Gabba Gabba! For those of you without little ones in your life, you may not even know what this is. Yo Gabba Gabba is a children’s TV show that stars D.J. Lance and his magical boombox. The Yo Gabba Gabba figures emerge from his boombox and entertain with song and dance. Each character has their own background, songs, etc. When I saw the book being made by fellow blogger, Project Four 14 here I knew I had to make one for my little Granddaughter.
I wanted the book to be some what educational, as well as entertaining, so I incorporated some well placed learning tools along the way.
Here is the cover: DJ Lance’s shoe with laces that can be tied and untied to practice the art of tying your own shoes.
The next page is the boombox. Closed you can see the boombox – open the flaps and there is a pocket for the Yo Gabba Gabba finger puppets.
The next page is for Foofa. She is my granddaughters favorite. Foofa loves flowers. On Foofa’s page the flowers are buttoned on. This will help my granddaughter learn to use buttons. I placed the Foofa finger puppet on the page so you can see which one she is.
The next page is dedicated to Toodee. He has ice type structures surrounding him. I placed his finger puppet under the ice arch.
The next page belongs to Muno. He is a cyclops character and it looks as though he hangs out among the rocks and mountains. To me the arch on this page looks like rainbow bridge out in the desert. Can you see him on this page?
Next we have Brobee. He is sometimes shown with a sad face. I decided to make him happy to live in the forest surrounded by majestic trees. I even designed a tree stump for him just like on the TV show. Can you spot Brobee?
Last but not least, my favorite character – Plex the robot. His page is the rocket ride page. I sewed the rocket to a ribbon so it can actually move around between the pages.
I had such a great time with this project and I thank the blog Project Four 14 for the inspiration behind this book. I hope you will visit her site and check out her book and let her know I sent you.
Working with felt is so easy and designing each of these pages was so much fun. If you decide to make a book like this, please share your photos. I welcome comments and questions so let me know about those as well.
