Now available on DVD, released on September 9, 2014

On September 9th, Nickelodeon extended their line of "Let's Learn" DVDs with a great release about Patterns and Shapes. Preschoolers will be able to learn and play along with their favorite Nickelodeon characters, including Team Umizoomi, Dora, Kai-Lan, and Blue as they study patterns and shapes in a 5 episode DVD. This fun filled, 138 minute DVD will explore circles, squares, triangles, and more, and also includes a shapes worksheet.
 
Let's Learn Patterns and Shapes Episode Synopsis:

Team Umizoomi: Team Umizoomi vs. The Shape Bandit

It's up to Team Umizoomi and UmiFriend to save Umi City from a shape-snatching super villain, the Shape Bandit. The Shape Bandit is creating chaos wherever he goes, taking rectangle windows, triangle roofs, circle traffic lights, and more. But when he steals Geo's Shape Belt, he really crosses the line. With the help of UmiFriend, Team Umizoomi must square off against this furry enemy to save their city and get Geo's Shape Belt back!
 

Dora the Explorer: Catch the Shape Train!
Another Dora and Boots adventure when they are making a Shape Train in his Boots' sticker book, but the train goes rolling down the track without anyone at the steering wheel, and need your help to catch it before it gets to Big Turn.
 
Ni Hao Kai-lan: The Dinosaur Balloon
There is a balloon festival and everyone is excited. The group teams up to create a neat balloon, but Kai-lan breaks the dinosaur balloon, Stompy doesn't want to help her because it wasn't his fault that the balloon broke.
 
Blue's Clues: Shape Searchers
Blue creates a fun game, Shape Searchers, to play with Joe. She uses a bag to hide the shapes and we try to find them and match to things around the room. We also meet some shapes and how they can combine with other shapes to make new things.
 
Blue's Room: Shape Detectives
Detectives are needed when shapes are missing. Blue and Joe, with their friends, try to find and solve the mystery.
 
DVD Runtime: 138 Minutes
 
Our Thoughts
Our package from Nickelodeon is here!
"I wonder what is inside?"
A Nickelodeon Let's Learn Patterns and Shapes DVD
 
This is a great variety of some very popular characters. S is a fan of Umizoomi, especially Bot, and Dora, while knows a little less about Kai-Lan and Blue. I was excited to see such a great, educational theme, perfect for preschoolers who are getting ready to head off to school. The focus of all the episodes is really on the topic of patterns and shapes, which S is pretty confident with. These episodes give her a little more concrete practice in a fun and silly way. I think this will also be a good fit for C when she gets a bit older, with the characters and format, she will be learning in no time. I am interested in checking out the other Let's Learn DVDs now that we have seen this one.

  2. I need to pick up a copy of this DVD. I'm really impressed that Blues Clues was included....it was an absolute favorite of my sons years ago, and I'd really love for my baby girl to enjoy it too. She is already a fan of Dora and Team Umizoomi...
