Nostril Recorder Adventures

Dear Yo Gabba Gabba,

Okay, you’ve had some bizarre moments on the show. You sing about a party in a tummy for craps sake. But this time you’ve outdone yourself.

With this:



I mean....is that little girl actually playing a recorder....WITH HER NOSE? Don’t you realize that by showing this it’ll make children run for their recorders so they can stuff it up their nostril?

I’m not kidding.

Watch my kid contemplate doing this.



He’s both disgusted and intrigued. Should I....shouldn’t I.....

And then, finally....



You teach a variety of lessons....from liking bugs, to trying new foods, to not biting your friends...and now I guess you can add playing a recorder with your nose to that list.

So thank you, Yo Gabba Gabba, for putting strange ideas in my son’s head.



It really is SUCH A JOY to see him walk across the room with a recorder up his nose.

(Let's hope he doesn't do this in music class though. I do not want a phone call from his teacher saying something like, "Erm, you have to come down, we have a nose situation going on....")

Signed,
A Baffled You Stuck It Up WHERE?!
Mother

PS. Remind me to buy a lot of sanitizer.

  3. This post reminds me of the scene in Home Alone where Kevin rides his sled down the stairs but because its a movie he is smooth sailing & then goes right out the door. When i tried it I fell half way out of it, stumbled down the stairs, & there will always be a section of the wall at the base of grandma's stairs that is a different color cuz they had to paint over the HUGE hole I made. lol.

    Whoever posted that video obviously didn't have kids or was born an adult. =)

  5. YIKES-- they've totally gone too far and crossed a very wide line... Kids stick too much stuff up there to begin with-- they didn't need this kind of encouragement!

  6. Don't bite your friends was a much better lesson than playing a recorder with your nose. That is the wackiest show, but kids just LOVE it!

  7. I saw that and thought the exact same thing: WTF?! Why on earth would they even put that on there - aren't there more "cool tricks" that don't involve shoving things into orifices?

    ReplyDelete
  8. see I find yo gabba gabba very useful in that the songs stick in my head and I can pull them out when they will most annoy my children or drive home a lesson. When a child of mine was not telling the truth the other day I started singing DOnt lie dont lie! dont you blame it on the other guy! he melted down and admitted. I sing to my kids all the time. they hate it. especially the puberty song for the teenager.

  9. We've never watched YGG. I'm glad now. I'm still not convinced Spiderman was good either. My son seems to think practicing his fighting moves on me is a good idea. I'm going to take the little punk out.

  10. that's awesome! i love yo gabba gabba. why wasn't this around when i was a kid?!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Was that one of the "cool tricks, cool tricks"?

    LMAO

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ha! Tell me about it! My daughter thinks that the 'cool trick' about balancing a spoon on the end of her nose is the coolest thing ever - 'cept when she tries it, her spoon is encrusted with mac n' cheese leftovers from the lunch that she is SUPPOSED to be eating!!

  13. So, this is why my kiddos have never seen Yo Gabba Gaba.

    Sponge Bob does it too, right? - In public, blame it on your husband ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ew!! See, now I'm really glad that I don't have cable or rent the Yo Gabba Gabba(my girls don't even know what that is, thankyouverymuch) videos. I had to take my daughter in to the OR for an extraction(they had to put her under for it) because she had stuffed a piece of sponge(didn't know what it was at the time) up her nose and NOONE could get it out. ugh. On the way to pick up her sister after the "surgery" she stuck two, yes, two pretzel sticks up her nose! AHH!

  15. Oh Good Lord I am so glad we missed this episode!! I will not be sharing your post with any of my children!!

  16. Anna loves YO Gabba Gabba but I try to limit it. That is just strange for the little girl to be playing with her nose.

    Tommy is looking so grown up in these pics! I remember when he was just a baby!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, that's interesting..yeah, that's the word I was looking for. Interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's disgusting.
    Every kid will LOVE it.

  19. There could be worse things up his nose.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hate Yo Gabba. It scares the crap out of me. Unfortunately noggin rearragned their program so ds occassionally convinces me to let him watch. We saw this one. It freaked us both out. (He's 3)

  21. What happened to children's television these days?

    Where's Mr. Rogers when you need him?

  22. Yo Gabby Gabby totally freaks me out - so glad we don't have that channel.
    However, when I was little my neighbor and I had "nose whistles" and we would sit at our windows and 'whistle talk' to each other...it was awesome.
    Weird but awesome.

  26. This Yo Gabba Gabba thing is sounding more and more like The Worst Show My Kids Never Watched. I still live with scars from Whiny Spoiled Brat Caillou and the crappy attitude he encouraged my son to emulate. I'd take a flute up the nose over that little butthead, I think.

  27. They need to do some serious drug testing on the writers of that show!

    ReplyDelete
  28. before I even started to read I knew it....i just knew it. My kids would so be looking to try it too.

    ReplyDelete
  29. See? Creepy. And now encouraging the improper use of nose recorders! Total weirdness, that show is...

    But I guess the same can be said for just about any kids show.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Isn't that the show with the phallic character? Let's hope he doesn't say what to do with his action figure..

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeah, we need Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers back, STAT!! Although your son still looks adorable, even with a recorder up his nose!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sticking it up the nose isn't the bad part, it's putting it back in his mouth that gags me! Yuck! And you're right, what the heck were they thinking showing this on tv? They know how easily kids are influenced!

    ReplyDelete
  33. i personally have never seen yo gabba gabba, but my baby cousin LOVES it and she's always doing this weird little dance that they apparently do on the show... from what my cousin (her daddy) tells me, she's OBSESSED with the show and they do some weird stuff but it's a good show. hand sanitizer is in order, i'd agree. and these pics are sooo cute. show them to him again when he's 17. lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh my. I already thought my kids wouldn't be watching Yo Gabba Gabba because I saw Jack Black on a commercial once for the show and I had a bad experience with him back at a concert in 2002 that kind of put me off him for life. But after the nose recorder thing, there is no way we're watching that. Kids get the idea to stick enough stuff up their noses without any help.

    ReplyDelete
  35. its as if they are asking kids to pick their noses.
    SERIOUSLY. something that goes in your mouth is now in your nose and then back again...

    ReplyDelete
  36. and after I sent that... I heard your husband say "Thats what she said"

    ReplyDelete
  37. What is the draw to that show? I am so glad my kids are older so that I don't have to watch it. It's probably like Barney but at least Barney was cute in his own kind of way. Now the teletubbies...hated them!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Until you can play the recorder with your nose you can not truly be said to have mastered the instrument.

    You have a beautiful son.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Im so glad my 8 yr old didnt see that. Cause he would so love to play the recorder with his nose!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Look on the bright side-

    All the other kids will be playing their recorders with their noses too!...
    Ahh CRAP! That reminds me my SIL called and wanted to borrow one of ours...
    Note to self: make sure EM WILL NOT be playing it with his nose!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yo Gabba Gabba makes me thankful for my kid's Scy Fy and Discovery Channel obsessions. His shows may freak me out and/or be too much for my mommy brain to process but they don't teach him to stick things up his nose.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ugh. I don't know why kids like that bizzare show. Creepy is the prefect word to describe it! lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm gonna be honest here. I'm not showing it to my Grandkids. Not only would they do it but my kids would have and (I might have had to try it...just once...)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks for visiting my blog! To answer your question, the Jack Black experience happened when I went to a concert and his band, Tenacious D, was the opening act. We were sitting in the 4th row and no one in front of us was there yet (they were smarter than me, I guess) Anyway, Mr. Black decides that I'm his mark for the evening and starts telling me to go home, quit my job and let the f-ing music out. I didn't think he would ever stop talking to me. Then he told me I was a backstage Betty. I don't even want to know what that might have meant. I haven't been able to watch any of his movies since 2002.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Can you believe they won an Emmy?? It IS scary! Unless your watching on hallucinogens.

    ReplyDelete
  46. At least he's not playing it with his butt... Which is something my children think is hilarious. They call it the fartcorder. Do you have any extra santizer?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've never even seen that show and it creeps me the hell out. I'm seriously considering getting rid of cable before I have kids. Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers are both on DVD. Works for me!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's crazy. Think of what else they'll want to put up their noses because they saw it on the show!

    ReplyDelete
  49. EEEK! That is just a bad idea! I hadn't seen that episode!

    ReplyDelete
  50. There are "worse" holes to stick it in...

    Ugh...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Totally did it when I was his age.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm not sure about this whole Yo Gabba Gabba thing. My kids are too old to watch it so I'm going to have to do some Googling. I've been noticing more toys from this show and the nephew is asking for them. Nose flutes are somewhat discusting but like Intense Guy said...there are worse holes...
