A trip to the Bubble Guppies Live.

We were given the opportunity to go see the Bubble Guppies Live: Ready to Rock in February. A family member had the tickets and, unfortunately, were able to use them. So, they were offered to us. Hunter is often watching Bubble guppies, and Blayne was from work, so I jumped at the chance.

For those of you that don’t know; Bubble Guppies is a preschooler show, where the main characters are mermaids who attend a school where they learn about things through song. In this particular show, they lose their pet dog and have to find them before their concert starts. Based on the description, I was confident that even Levi would love this show.

The show itself was in Edmonton at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. This is an incredible building where they hold all sorts of shows, from concerts to ballets, to operas. The building is located near the university, so public transit is readily available and there is a large amount o public parking. However, the parkade height restriction is not posted and we nearly ended up in a predicament because of this. We made it in and out but had to find parking elsewhere due to the minimal outside parking being occupied by small vehicles.

When we made it into the building we quickly and easily found our seats on the second level. Even though the show had already started (whoops) everything was well organised and lit enough that there were no issues. One of the things I like most about the jubilee is that regardless of where you sit – in my experience – you can hear and see everything clearly. Somebody did a good job when designing this building.

From the moment we sat down we had two entranced little boys. Levi, from the get-go, was singing and dancing in his seat, and Hunter, while he took a bit to warm up to it, was soon following suit.  The show was full of dancing and singing, and jokes. It kept the kids involved and far from bored. Even the adults in the audience were singing along. From start to finish the show was about 90 minutes, including the intermission, which gave the younger audience members a chance to get out of their chairs, and probably take a much-needed potty break. In my opinion, it was the perfect length to keep the target audience happy, and not bored. You can only expect young kids to watch something for so long.
The kids had a wonderful time, and I would consider taking them to a similar show in the future. Maybe one geared for kids who are a bit older. Even though Levi was “too old” he still had a great time.

  1. I’ve never heard of Bubble Guppies before, but it sounds like you had a great time 🙂
    It’s great that you could see no matter where you sat and that the boys were entertained for the whole 90 minutes. It takes a lot to keep little ones completely entertained for that length of time!!

  2. My daughter used to love the Bubble Guppies! So glad a good time was had by all. I’ve never taken my kids to anything like this because I assume they’ll behave terribly but I’d really love to take them to more interesting places!

    #RV&HT Thanks for linking up! x

    1. Honestly, I have always been afraid of the same thing. We took Hunter to a PawPatrol concert last year that he loved, but that was outdoors. Being that this was indoors and more formal so to speak it wad a little daunting at first, but the tickets were free and I am glad we took the chance as we will look into more things like this in the future!


  3. Peachy likes the bubble guppies too. She loves music and the show always has some great songs. I’m sure she would have enjoyed this. But she’s only 15 months old so I’m not sure how long she could sit still for a live show. #Blogstravaganza

  4. My children don’t watch bubble guppies as they’re firmly paw patrol fans but seeing them live sounded really fun 🙂 after I few character meet & greets we’ve taken my daughter to I’m pretty sure she would have a total meltdown!
    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

    1. Paw patrol is huge in our house as well. We took Hunter to see them love last summer and he loved it. He also met Sky and Chase last week and that of course went over fantastically.
