Numberjacks

Numberblocks is a British children's CGI-animated television series. It debuted on CBeebies on 23 January 2017. It is animated by Blue-Zoo Productions, the studio that also produces Alphablocks, which is related. It is a show to teach kid under the age of 11 how to count.

Premise

Numberblocks follows the adventures of one hundred anthropomorphic block characters in Numberland, with the number of blocks determining which numeral they stand for and a tiny black floating numerical figure above them to show how many blocks they are made of, called a numberling. When one of the blocks jumps on top of another, they transform into a different character to make a new number. The show tries to help preschool children learn numeracy skills, especially how to count and add up.
