In this special DVD, the Umi Team must identify shapes, build a super flashlight to find a Brachiosaurus, figure out missing numbers in a sequence and complete other math missions.

Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, the Team Umizoomi: Journey to Numberland DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $16.99.
Team Umizoomi features a tiny team of superheroes, Milli, Geo and Bot, who use their mighty math powers to help little kids solve big problems. The series combines action-adventure missions with an interactive math curriculum designed to help kids develop self-confidence in their math abilities and appreciate the many ways in which math shapes their world. The Umi Team is not complete without their Umi Friends (home viewers), who help the team along the way while practicing various math skills. Set to a soundtrack of preschool-friendly pop songs, the series is designed to build upon preschoolers’ conceptual understanding of math as they are exposed to core mathematical concepts like numbers, counting, computations, measurement, patterns and shapes.
Team Umizoomi: Journey to Numberland Episode Synopses King of Numbers (Double Length Episode)
The Umi Team goes to visit the King of Numbers in his magical Number Kingdom, but the anti-math wizard, Zilch, locks the king in his tower. All the numbers start to disappear and it’s up to Team Umizoomi to save the king and his kingdom.
The Great Lunchbox Chase
The team is packing snacks for a rooftop picnic lunch with their friend Anna when Sarah calls in an Umi Alarm. Sarah left her lunchbox on the school bus and all the picnic sandwiches are inside. The team saves the day by building a super helicopter, chasing down the bus and retrieving the sandwiches.
It’s Baby Dinosaur Day at the museum and the team is getting ready to go when Mouse sounds the Umi Alarm. Thunder scares all the dinosaurs out of the museum and they scatter all over Umi City. It’s up to Team Umizoomi to locate and rescue each frightened dinosaur before the museum reopens.
We love Team Umizoomi and this DVD full of great episodes was a fun addition to our video collection. My daughter really gets into the songs they sing and follows right along with their adventures. She's in kindergarten this year, but she still loved this DVD of new episodes. Plus as a parent you can appreciate that it includes a 1-year free subscription to Parents magazine in the DVD for a limited time only.
Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this DVD for review from Nickelodeon in return for my honest opinions.
