Parents Need to Know

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

With only two mini-games, TEAM UMIZOOMI doesn't have a great deal of depth. However, the vibe is positive and friendly, and kids will see different sets of shapes and objects each time they play, so there's some replay value. Fans of the TV show will enjoy seeing realistic likenesses of Geo and Milli and hearing the characters voiced by the same actors from the TV show.

Boring for anyone older than 6

This game is great for ages 1-5, but once you get 7+ you'll start thinking it's boring. I'm older than 7, and it's pretty boring for me. But it teaches kids about math and gives them a positive attitude about it. I gave this game 3 stars because I'm 10 now so it's boring for me. But for 2 year olds, I'll give it 10 stars!
