I don’t think I have to introduce the name JUMPSTART too much; many of you have heard the name and are somewhat familiar with this wonderful company. We have been a BIG BIG fan of Jump Start ever since my Teen was little. We even have Jump Start in German for the kids. We just love the games, the characters and all the things kids can learn thru the Jump Start games.
For more than 15 years, Knowledge Adventure has set the standard in kids’ software by creating the finest educational products for use in the home and the classroom. Now Jump Start recently has launched an online game. No more downloading the game and half way thru realizing that your computer isn’t fast enough or up to date or even that the CD scratched and the game is useless. Nope, none of that.
Many of you are familiar with online games thru Facebook, now Jump Start is similar to those games BUT totally geared towards little ones ages 3-10.
Once you enter the Jump Start World you are in a world of friends and adventure. Every step you take has something new to explore or do. My kids were excited when I told them we had a trial membership to review this game. They had been asking me for month to sign up for the membership, but I was hesitating. My biggest worry was, are the games safe for little ones?
They are completely safe, no personal information is ever exchanged. If you are still not sure; there are down loadable games for different age groups 3-5 ; 6-8, which is part of your membership. There is just soo much to do and explore in the Virtual world of Jump Start. Kids can create avatars called Jumpeez for themselves and explore magical worlds, discovering and unlocking games, videos and storybooks that teach everything from math to reading. There is so much more to do, go check it out at www.JumpStart.com and see why WE love it…!!!
My toddler had a lot of fun playing the 3-5 year old game, her big brothers helped a bit but she was able to move around on her own. Now my Tween was the hardest to get off the PC, he has yet to stop playing this game. He loves it. He had a ball creating his own play figure and exploring all the different virtual worlds. It is a lot of fun and the best part is, the kids learn while they play. My Toddler had virtual letters and she added stickers to her letters, with pictures of the item that started with the letter on her sheet, like B for banana or E for elephant.. she had a ball.
It was also exciting the other day my Tween wasn’t on his game for a day or so because we were busy with soccer, that all the sudden they launched a new game. He was able to build his own race track, he was excited. Yes he is a Tween but he still enjoys this game and sits for hours playing and exploring the different worlds in Jump Start.
There is also information for parents like the Parent Blog, which is actually really cool, you find out new games and tricks and ideas there.
I love how interactive Jump Start is between the website with the games, they also have the Blog, Twitter and Facebook to stay on top of all the new releases on the Virtual World and game ideas and information. Every now and then they will ask for your help in creating a new game, or taking a survey to see what you like or dislike… I just think a company that is that involved with kids and learning is just awesome.
