To my surprise my four year old was excited to receive this new DVD.  I was completely unfamiliar with the show, but he immediately screeched, “Team Umizoomi!”.  Its at moments like this, I wonder how I can be so clueless.  How had I not heard about this show?   After a little probing it turns out my son had seen the show at our hotel stay a couple of months prior.  Since we don’t have cable television this is the only opportunity my son’s have to “live the good life”:)  Obviously that brief single episode months ago made an impression on him as he was very excited.

The basic gist of the show and therefore DVD is this- teach children basic math skills such as numbers, shapes, counting, patterns through fun athletic characters and in this instance through their experience defeating the robots in the Umi Games (similar to the Olympic Games).  As a mother, I love this!  My four year old is at such an impressionable age.  He is a sponge soaking up all the information around him.  Television shows like Team Umizoomi show my boys that learning can be fun.  Sometimes TV can be completely mindless, but in this instance there is substance and learning along with fun.  Love it!  I feel that best age for this DVD is age 4 or 5.

Team Umizoomi: Umigames is available for purchase from Amazon for $11.93 and ships for free with Super Saver Shipping.
