Fun, Simple, & Educational

Cute show with fun songs, basic math reasoning, and simple problem solving. Heck, my kids love making patterns because of Milli! It’s one that I can turn on and not worry at all about what my kids are watching. Even the occasional “bad guys” are relatively benign and make amends/learn something at the end of the episodes. It’s colorful, fun, and engaging without being super overstimulating. And as a perk, since the “bad guys” aren’t that bad and none of the characters are annoying, my kids haven’t picked up annoying behaviors or phrases from this show. :) Also I friggin love Donovan Patton (voices Bot on Umizoomi and plays Joe on Blues Clues + the reboot ) Anyway, UmiZoomi has been in our show rotation for 2 years (since we had a 2.5 year old, 1 year old, and newborn! Screen time limits go out the window during the winter in the middle of a pandemic haha). It’s a fun show. Your kids won’t become mathematicians but they will learn some shapes, numbers, and patterns!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (51):
Kids say (45):

Created by the braintrust that forever changed kids' programming with Blue's Clues, TEAM UMIZOOMI entices kids with its vibrant visual appeal and colorful characters who embody the energy and spirit of preschoolers. The show's now-familiar interactive format encourages kids to puzzle through questions themselves and take pride in themselves when they answer correctly.

Beyond offering exceptional educational content for youngsters, the show also is unique in its deliberate focus on a math curriculum. Many shows reinforce basic counting and number recognition skills, but Team Umizoomi takes the content to another level by introducing more complex concepts like spatial relation, measurement, and geometry -- and all at a level that preschoolers will have little trouble grasping.
