Jumpstart Review & Giveaway



What kid does not like video games? What parent does not like education? On JumpStart.com both interests come together into one educational online game. For ages 3-10 yrs this 3-D adventure world teaches kids reading, math, comprehension skills and much more while having fun!

Now C is not a big computer user so when the company contacted me I was intrigued. Would C understand it? Would she be able to play it? When you first launch your game Frankie is there to welcome you and explain all the features. From there you get to create and name your own character called a Jumpee. C loved it and named hers "Jessica Sillytree". We have only made it through a few areas of the park, but no kidding we have spent hours playing. I literally lost count after 3 1/2 hours of continuous play, we were just having a blast. The graphics are cool and the animals friends you meet along the way are too cute. This is very age appropriate and easy to use. Basic mouse skills and sometimes using the arrow keys on the key board is all you need. For the parents they have a blog and a disscusion board where you can chat with other parents. We give it 4 thumbs up!

The different worlds look like they would entertain kids for hours.

I've used JumpStart CD-Roms for both of my kids, since my oldest was 18 months, and I swear they helped him get to where he is now, going in to 8th grade with straight A's, honor roll and NJHS. And my six year old plays her JumpStart discs daily.

I'd recommend them to anyone.
