Regular mumsnetter!
Please help me give my son the only Christmas present he has asked for this year !!!

Does any one have any unwanted TEAM UMIZOOMI toys that they are willing to sell to me please?
I ordered the Umicar from America but sadly it arrived badly damaged and unsafe to use.

Please help me mumsnetters !

I've never heard of it, sorry, but bumping for you.

It's a tv show on Nick Jnr that focuses on preschool maths x

I was bidding on one last night on eBay UK that went for £56.
Found one for £40 posted from America but, wouldn't arrive in time for Christmas!

Feel gutted ��
Thanks for all the bumps x

It looks like it's either or Ebay, as toy retailers don't seem to stock it, is it a new programme to the UK?
It may be worth contacting Ebay sellers and offering a buy it now, even if it isn't advertised, as they will start to lose buyers soon as less hope for delivery before Christmas
Wish i could be more help

Thank you Nurse.
No it's not a new show. It was first aired in 2010 and is still shown on nick jnr today.

If he still liked Peppa pig we wouldn't be having these issues grin

Ask on the bargain thread, people on there are quite good at tracking things down.
Good luck.

Good idea thank you diamonds x

Does he have a leap frog leap reader? The entertainer has the team umizoomi book for that for less than £5? Failing that do you have a t k max near you sometimes they sell random toys you can't always get in uk?

Would he appreciate a homemade one?

MamaDoGood Thu 18-Dec-14 22:46:36

I have been hunting the local tk maxx recently but thank you for that suggestion! Found some wonderful treasures there so far !

He would go nuts for a home made one but sadly I don't think I could do it justice Wimbledon x

2andDone my eldest has a leap reader that he didn't take notice of so could recycle that for the little one. Great idea, thanks x

Is that the one with the red rocket?

jellyandsoup Fri 19-Dec-14 10:14:34

No ignore me that was little Einsteins. What about making up some little cards of each character and laminating them, if you make 2 of each you could play snap

there are quite a few team umioomi books on amazon, would that be any good?
