Sat watching the all new numtums with DD.

It is shit.

Opinions welcome.

That is all.

I prefer the new one. DD got very excited 'the numtums have got names, I didn't know the numtums have names' etc ad infinitum.

The new grandpa in my pocket however, so many questions.

The songs were the best bit of numtums and now there are no songs.

I was just coming on to start a thread with that precise title! shock What were they on when they thought this was a good idea?

gaggiagirl Wed 05-Feb-14 16:12:57

Yeah grandpa can get knotted too.

gaggiagirl Wed 05-Feb-14 16:14:57

I wanted to sing 'drummin with the numtums' well cbeebies, you have ruined that for me.

It was like a whole new show. DS seemed to like it but missed the Numtums song [sad but not sad enough for actual sadface]

It's brilliant!
It's not shit.

SmallBoy keeps saying "The new Numtums have funny voices, Mommy." I only half-paid attention today -- was there any discussion about numbers and/or counting on it? There didn't seem to be whenever I did actually tune and listen....

gaggiagirl Wed 05-Feb-14 17:23:42

I didn't see much numbering going on.

The fucking fury when i watched on Monday and the theme tune had changed.

RenterNomad Wed 05-Feb-14 17:50:45

Neo Numtums are bollocks! I need to teach DD not to skip from 4 to 9, and the catchy counting tune was just great! Then there was the out-of-order section, which is achievable and therefore engaging for a small child. sad

Also, what is with the new Mr Bloom series? No Raymond, no singing French aubergine, just him with his cod-northern accent being all educational and worthy about trees n shit.

gaggiagirl Wed 05-Feb-14 18:18:49

Mr Bloom is another one welcome to get knotted!

Scout19075 Wed 05-Feb-14 18:21:54

I did notice a lack of veggies when SB watched Mr Bloom today. But again, I wasn't totally paying attention I was too busy MNing putting dinner in the slow cooker.

And what's with Mr Maker off on his jollys around the world? How did he manage that?

Grandpa in my pocket can fuck off.

ShadowFall Wed 05-Feb-14 18:38:03

Yes, what's happened to the children in Grandpa in my Pocket?

There seem to be different children but the same Grandpa?

gaggiagirl Wed 05-Feb-14 19:15:16

The children are adults now! Jason mason has grown into a fine young man.

Magicstars Wed 05-Feb-14 19:17:26

I don't like the new numtums either!

SinisterBuggyMonth Wed 05-Feb-14 22:35:21

Jason Mason is looking a bit One Direction isn't he?

DD1 used to LOVE the numtums - she'd shout the numbers louder and louder at the TV, and if it was a number eight one - her day was fully made.

New numtums she just looks at the TV forlornly and walks away in disgust! It's ruined!

pluCaChange Fri 07-Feb-14 21:17:04

Here's the official explanation.

It suggests this is meant to be the new Numberjacks, but I must say I prefer the Numberjacks, not NeoNumtums!

gaggiagirl Fri 07-Feb-14 21:36:27

I prefer numberjacks too.

All new numtums can jog on to fuckville!

I love drummin with the numtums - has it changed? I'll refuse to watch it.

I want a numtum - a real one

gaggiagirl Fri 07-Feb-14 22:13:39

I want a one too sauce they are cute.
Yes let's not watch New numtums in protest.
