    • Answer Team Umizoomi, which debuted in 2010 and airs on both Nickelodeon and Nick Jr., is a computer animated series that focuses on preschool mathematical concepts. The main characters, sibling superheroes Milli and Geo, work with a friendly robot named Bot to help people in need of assistance around Umi City. Milli's special superhero powers include using her ponytails to measure objects and changing her trademark pink dress to any pattern. Geo wears a shape belt and often creates blueprints for items the team needs to complete a task. Milli and Geo work together with the child viewer to solve problems by using colors, shapes, sorting, measuring, and other preschool mathematical skills.

      As the Christmas season approaches, preschool aged children everywhere are likely to add Umizoomi toys to their wish lists. After all, because they're invited to work with their Umi friends throughout each episode of the show, children likely feel that they know the characters personally. Lucky for them, there are plenty of Umizoomi toys available for purchase, both online and in retail stores. The first Umizoomi toys released included plush character dolls and bath toys for children to enjoy. Now, there are also cars featured on Team Umizoomi and an Umicity treehouse. There are also plenty of educational options to choose from, including preschool Umizoomi math kits. Many books are also available, including picture books, board books, and coloring and activity books.

      Parents can feel good about purchasing Umizoomi toys for their children because each of the toys promotes an educational concept. For example, the Umicar teaches young children numbers and counting. The Umicity treehouse allows children to match numbers and shapes while playing. Children will think they're just playing with their Umi friends from TV; parents will know their children are, in fact, learning through play.

    • Answer In the early 1940's husband and wife team Hans Augusto and Margaret Rey created the playful, mischievous monkey Curious George. He has since his first appearance in book form achieved iconic status through all manner of media. Many generations have gone on many adventures and misadventures with the little guy and his constant caretaker and friend, "The Man in the Yellow Hat." Originating in France, the Curious George stories have been translated into many, many different languages throughout the years which has resulted in a worldwide popularity. The rascally primate has captured the heart of millions--maybe billions--in a multiplicity of forms ranging from books to movies to toys. This last includes a wide range of purchasable merchandise and paraphernalia. One thing is for sure, if its Curious George related, kids are sure to love it.

      Christmas is coming just around the bend. Not quite sure what to give that special little someone? What better surefire gift than a toy form of this time-honored classic. The little guy comes in a huge array of toy forms: games, kids furniture, action figures, movie memorabilia, and the list goes on. One of the most beloved of the Curious George-themed toys is the plush toy. This is a particularly great gift for very young children. Even if they are not yet a fan of the famous monkey, they are sure to love him with all of their heart almost immediately. Just image: The night of Christmas, the presents have all been opened, the food eaten, the festivities had--and there your young ones lies, nestled under the covers with his or her arm wrapped around a warm, soft Curious George plush toy. What a finale to an amazing holiday!
