Now, I have to admit that when this was first introduced on TV, I was scared- as if it was another one of those Kids Incorporated type shows.

I have to say, their songs are kind of addictive.. Or do I just stay home too much? :/

I find the Fresh Beat Band annoying but catchy. Their acting is TERRIBLE. It wsa better when they were called the Jumparounds and they were only a music act in between the actual shows. There isn't enough substance to make a full show out of them.

I LOVE Team Umizoomi. It's one of the few Nick Jr shows that is educational AND fun.

I've only seen that one a couple of times. My son is hooked on Imagination Movers, which I have to admit, I even find kind of enjoyable. We "turn around, turn around, turn around..." a lot at random times during the day. :)

Nahh - those songs do stick in your head, and Molly loves to dance to them. My personal favorite is the Backyardigans!

LOL. I put the first episode on accident and my daughter has been hooked ever since. I actually like this show. It teaches them about music and working together. Plus like you said their songs are addictive.

I know I am home too much because I know all the theme songs on NickJr. But I have to admit that I have downloaded a few Fresh Beat Band songs for my ipod. And we do sing the "there's a party in my tummy. so yummy so yummy" after every meal. (on a sidenote my husband was VERY disappointed when he found out I didn't make that song up)

I don't remember them being called the Jumparounds.. But I do think there is enough substance to make a show out of it. They're teaching all kinds of music and everything.. I think it's great! But music has been a huge part of my family since my parents were little and my husband is a music fanatic and plays the bass guitar, so we were thrilled that there's a show geared solely towards music.

I do love Team Umizoomi. Speaking of which.. I need to record some for Little Man b/c it comes on way too early out here in Hawaii and he hardly gets to watch it :/

Good luck with the job, Ashie! I, too, am looking to start work soon- as soon as I start getting better, anyway (whenever that is).

I used to find myself dancing and singing along but I've been sidelined from a lot of things lately. I think those shows are very good for kids, but somehow they pull the parents right in, too.

Paige loves "Loco Legs" and sings it and does the dance randomly throughout the day.

BTW, I LOVE Team Umizoomi! 'Dip, dip, dip, crunch! Dip, dip, dip, crunch!' 'Bread, turkey, cheese, pickles. Bread, turkey, cheese, pickles. Jaw extendooooo' :)



Aww, Jodi K... I love Yo Gabba Gabba. DJ Lance always cracks me up with his enthusiasm. And I like the little lessons they have on there.
