JumpStart is an award-winning adventure-based 3D virtual world that is super-personalized, wildly imaginative and really fun, but don't let that fool you - it also teaches math, reading, and critical thinking skills so kids get a real jump start in life.
In addition to CD games, JumpStart launched a browser-based virtual world for kids 3-10 years old. Kids create avatars called Jumpeez for themselves and explore magical worlds, discovering and unlocking games, videos and storybooks that teach everything from math to reading.
Our experience with JumpStart has been wonderful so far!! We haven't been able to play much ( My readers know the time crunch I am in ), but I wanted to get this giveaway out to you guys before chaos truly sets in!
Lucas is 3, and wasn't able to navigate the game by himself, but I didn't mind sitting there and helping! He really liked ALL the games for his age group in StoryLand. He kept saying "Is this cool Mommy? Is it? Is it?"
I certainly am not one to let me child sit on the computer (not to mention a 3 year old) but this was truly fun and educational! My son has a 5 second attention span, but amazingly he really got into the game! I must say, he loved creating the avatar. It was already set up in my name, but he was perfectly fine with that! He liked picking out my hair, clothing, etc.
I look forward to helping my son play and explore, and will definitely be renewing my membership when it's over! It is completely worth it, and I am convinced your child will love it too!
