Hello everyone! You know that I love designing baby stuff, but I am trying really hard to branch out (although I have THREE cute baby shoe patterns coming out soon, stay tuned!). The Boy loves Yo Gabba Gabba, so I thought I would try this simple guy as my first amigurumi pattern. Thankfully, this pattern was pretty simple to design and pretty easy to work up. Do you have a Yo Gabba Gabba fan in your house? It has catchy songs, fun, whimsical characters and actual scenes that a toddler can relate to (interestingly enough). This is Muno (“He’s tall and happy”). He is courteous of others, loves eating noodles, is near-sited [although he gets glasses (or a glass?) AND a contact lens all in one episode] and lives in a pink and purple desert. He is The Boy’s favorite character, so I knew he would love him.
For this next installment page for our Gabbaland quiet book, I did the next easiest one: Toodeeland! Just three colors and lots of nice straight edges to cut.
In case you missed it, my first page was Brobeeland, and The Boy is wondering when the next pages will be done, so I really need to get this finished for him.
You can find a printable template HERE.

1 Light Gray
1 Light Blue
This is how the pieces should be placed on your blue felt page.
Make sure to sew the back ones in place first.
And don’t forget to grab the template for all five characters HERE.
Maybe some of you remember my Yo Gabba Gabba Felt Magnets from a while back. Well, my son still loves playing with them; not so much on the fridge, but along with his other toys on the floor. So I thought it would be fun to make a Gabbaland quiet book to go with the characters. I figured I would publish each one as I finish it. I am starting with Brobeeland.
Keep in mind, this is an “artistic interpretation” of the scenery from the show. It doesn’t look exactly the same, but I showed it to The Boy this morning, and he knew exactly what it was!
I made a printable template of this page for you! You can find it here: Brobeeland Template
Felt sheets you will need:
3 sheets, each a different shade of brown
The orange is the background and the foundation for the whole page. I took the gold sheet and cut it in half for the foreground, and I just eyeballed a strip of dark brown for the middle piece. It overlaps where the gold lays on the orange. Sew the brown strip in place first. After that, line up each tree piece with its secondary piece and sew them onto the page. I just laid the top piece in place and sewed them both at the same time. Then, finish with the last couple wood pieces.
Don’t forget to go and get all five characters HERE (you can just leave off the magnetic strips).
Since the Boy has just loved his Transportation Magnets, I decided to make him another set. He loves the TV show Yo Gabba Gabba(I have posted about it earlier), so I made him a magnet of each character from the show.
I took the liberty of posting my patterns. Keep in mind, these are hand-drawn so they aren’t perfect (observe Foofa’s ginormous swollen right leg and skinny left leg, oops!)

Honestly, you could probably just hot glue these together if you are aversive to hand-sewing (it’s not difficult, but can be a bit time-consuming).
Happy sewing :)
