Team Umizoomi has gathered a loyal fan following very quickly and the reason for this can be solely attributed to its innovative format. The series focuses on making math fun for preschoolers. Its delightful concept ensures that kids in the said age group learn real life applications of math through measuring, spatial relations and of course, counting. This practical attribute of the show is what most excites the parents.

Because of the age group at which the show is targeted, an interactive format was a must. And the show managed to deliver that in a fine manner. Team Umizoomi keeps kids engaged brilliantly as they help solve the problems that are encountered by the characters of the series. Along the way, the kids also get to fine-tune their color identification and shape recognition skills.

Although there are quite a few shows that enhance the counting and measuring skills of kids, Team Umizoomi is unique in the sense that comparatively complex mathematics concepts like geometry and spatial relations are introduced to them in an easy manner.
