A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn preschool number concepts including counting, number order, addition, and subtraction. As they enjoy time with Team Umizoomi, they'll practice all these by playing charming games. With plenty of hints to help them along, kids can learn instead of just reinforcing what they already know. A section for parents to track how their children are doing would add to the app, but this also is a good age for kids to explore side-by-side with their parents. Team Umizoomi Math: Zoom into Numbers HD helps preschoolers learn math foundations in a tactile way while playing cute games and earning rewards.

Ease of Play

The game controls will be familiar to most kids. The math skills ramp up slightly over the course of play. Kids will need to recognize actual numbers but also groups of dots (as in dice). There is a fairly significant range in math skills, however, from counting to three or four to doing addition and subtraction.

The game is based on a popular kids' television franchise.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Team Umizoomi Math: Zoom into Numbers HD is an educational math game aimed at toddlers and preschoolers starring characters from Nick Jr.'s Team Umizoomi TV show. The app contains five mini-games: "Toy Store Counting," "Number Bubbles" (number recognition), "Rolling Toy Parade" (number sequencing), "Race Around Umi City" (number comparisons), and "Up! Up! and Balloons" (addition/subtraction). It's cute, and beginning learners will enjoy learning numbers with this fun app, but kids who already are pretty familiar with counting concepts may lose interest quickly.

What's it about?

TEAM UMIZOOMI MATH: ZOOM INTO NUMBERS HD​ is a math game aimed at toddlers and preschoolers that has five mini-games: "Toy Store Counting," "Number Bubbles" (number recognition), "Rolling Toy Parade" (number sequencing), "Race Around Umi City" (number comparisons), and "Up! Up! and Balloons" (addition/subtraction). Kids must unlock the last four games by completing at least one round of the game before it. When a round of a game is complete, kids earn a reward. After eight rewards in one game, they can earn a trophy. Earning trophies on all five games unlocks the "Key to the City." The city itself also has objects to interact with. The Number Bubbles game has characters chewing bubble gum and blowing bubbles.

Is it any good?

Team Umizoomi Math: Zoom into Numbers HD  has some great features, including the ability to have four player profiles, plenty of enthusiastic (if repetitive) feedback, and game objects young kids will relate to (toys, balloons, cars). It may try to pack a bit too much range into the app, however, as a child who needs to learn basic counting probably will not be ready for subtraction. The app also doesn't require any mastery or progress in one game before a child can move along to another one, which may result in kids playing a game that's too difficult. Negative feedback is gentle and, in most games, involves a prompt to choose the right answer, which helps keep kids from being frustrated. This is likely to be a hit with the preschool crowd.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about awareness of numbers in everyday life. You can point out prices at the grocery store, speed limits on the freeway, and lots more. 

  • Play along with your kids and help them out with any concepts they may have a hard time with (sequencing, subtraction).
