Set to a soundtrack of preschool-friendly pop songs, the series is designed to hep build preschoolers’ conceptual understanding of math. Kids are exposed to math concepts like numbers, counting, computations, measurement, patter

After the premiere on Jan. 25th, Nickelodeon will air two weeks of brand-new episodes from Tuesday, Jan. 26 through Thursday, Jan. 28; and Monday Feb. 1 through Thursday Feb. 4 at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT). Two back-to-back episodes will also encore on Nick Jr., on Sunday, Jan. 31, and Sunday, Feb. 7, at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

Team Umizoomi features the voice of Donovan Patton (Joe from Blue’s Clues), and mixes 2D and 3D animation with live action to create Umi City, a uniquely patterned urban environment. Look for more information at Nick.com.

    My 3-year-old daughter loves team umi zoomi. I wanted to buy her an umi zoomi toy for Valentine’s Day but I don’t think they are selling any yet. ;( She would have completely flipped out. Can’t wait till I can surprise her with one!

  • Evelyn

    I watched this show with our Grandchild, who usually is not easily entertained.
    She liked it and was envolved in the searches.

    I think you may have a real good show here.

  • Nikki

    My 3 year old absolutely loves the show! I can’t wait until they come out with clothing or toys that I can buy for him!

  • Toni

    My son’s 4th. birthday is March 31. He tells me all the time that he wants a Team Umi Zoomi party. I sure hope you come out with party supplies before then. He truley loves tha show.

    • MIchelle

      My daughter has her 4th b-day in Aug and she is asking for the same thing. Not having much luck finding birthday party supplies in that theme yet, just edible cake topper. Starting to worry!

    I think this show is so wonderful. My 6yr. old can sit there without moving because it teaches all about the shapes and colors. Whoever directed that two thumbs up for you……..

  • Autumn

    My almost 3 year old son absolutely loves this show. He has me on the Nick Jr. website daily printing out stickers and printables. He carries them around everywhere, even to bed. He loves participating with the shows and loves playing the games on the website. I hope they come out with products soon because my son keeps asking for a Geo toy!!!!!!!

  • dawn

    My almost 3 year old son would not even look at the television… absolutley no interest in it… until we found Umi!!! We now have 16 episodes DVR’d and have to watch them 27 times a day it seems! He sings along with each song and now requests certain episodes… the playground is his current favorite… He has learned his shapes, counting and measuring and is beginning to solve the patterns on his own! This show is AMAZING!!! He will definitley have a head start when he begins school thanks to Umi!! Can’t wait to find toys on the market!!

  • Sally

    My daughter LOVES this show and is dying for a Milli doll for Christmas. I can’t find any toys out there for Team Umizoomi yet. :( Shoot!

  • Connie

    My 2 year old loves this show. she interacts and responds to the show. Its Great!
    I hope that they come out with some toys and clothes soon. she would love that!!!

  • Denise

    My 2 year old loves this show! It’s his favorite! Even if I just sing part of the intro, he gets excited. I’m looking for some toys for him for x-mas, but can’t find any. Nickelodeon needs better marketing people, because they could have made a lot of money off of a lot of people shopping for x-mas gifts this year!

  • Samantha

    My 3 year old son LOVES umizoomi he interacts with them and dances.. the best part is this show doesnt grate on my nerves. Thank goodness for a DVR. I am so dissapointed there arent toys for Christmas!! They could have made a boatload of money..what were they thinking?? Hop to it Nick JR

    • tara

  • tara

    i havent been able to find any either..no dvds or toys..if you happen to find some please post!

  • Tracy

    I found some t-shirts on eBay, but no luck finding toys or DVDs. :( I can’t believe Nick Jr isn’t trying to cash in on this! It is the only show my daughter will stop playtime to watch. With catchy tunes & fun plots, Nick Jr could make a fortune off Umizoomi if they marketed this show have as much as Spongebob & Dora.

  • Irene

    I’m shocked I can’t find anything Umizoomi for Christmas……It’s been out for almost a year……come on Nick Jr……..get with it!!! So frustrating not being able to get something your child really wants for Christmas!! Grrrr…….

  • Tasha

    I agree, its an adorable show. Very few shows make it past the mom and dad test, and since we only watch one show per day or less, you know it has to be good! I too was looking for Umizoomi toys for xmas. I have decided to ask my friend who makes felted wool dolls to make a set of the characters. She can make anything and I love that they aren’t cheap plastic stuff that I want to chuck as soon as it comes in the door. I think Millie, Geo and Bot will look adorable! I just wish I had thought of it sooner. I guess I thought umizoomi stuff would be easy to get. :( If you want some for yourself, she is on etsy… I think under Bori Dolls.

  • Bernadette

    My boy/girl twins LOVE this show! They think they are Geo & Milly, lol. I am planning (as of 10 minutes ago) on doing an Umizoomi birthday party for them in March and desperately searching for ideas. If anyone finds any, could they please email me at lacostamom at gmail dot com? THANKS!

  • debbie a.
