Devonny LOVES Umizoomi. I was skeptical the very first few times I saw it on last year, and thought I wouldn't like it, but I gotta admit, it's growing on me. Especially since she begs to watch it, I am constantly hoping it will come on. We don't have a DVR, but now- we have the disc, so I fear it will be played endlessly ... :)
Anyway- if you haven't seen it, use the links in this post to check it out!
