Jump Start Review & Giveaway! CLOSED


I have to say I was SO excited when Knowledge Adventure gave us the opportunity to review JumpStart. They have been around for a while, in fact you might have seen them before with their selection of computer games, but they have something totally new and really neat to offer: A 3D Virtual World that is browser based (online).

Story Land - D

When I saw what JumpStart had to offer, I knew this was not only something that would be a ton of fun for my son as he learns to use the computer but there are also many other conceStory Land - Monkey Gamepts and things being learned while he's playing. JumpStart is not just a fun game, it's a learning tool.

JumpStart is geared towards ages 3-10 and while my son is on the younger side, we found that doing it together was the way to go! I would help him navigate where he chose to go and he would make his choices and selections in his world. The characters and the worlds are so engaging and we have only navigated through such a small portion of it. I was fairly certain he would love it but I had no idea just how much! He asks me to play it and even waits patiently (this kid is NOT patient) while I set the computer up.

Story Land - Paint ProgramJumpStart offers many, many other tools and things on their site that add to the fun. There is a parent discussion board, and with a membership you can download some of their retail games. They also have a blog that is well worth subscribing to with lots of great ideas and crafts to do with your kids among other things.

If you have several children, they can each set up their own character and world which will be saved individually in the same account. When they go back to play again it's all how it was when they ended it, it is uniquely theirs.

Membership is $7.99 a month

So my son grew up on these games and he now has his own blog. I love Jump Start and believe they are why my son is as smart as he is. Or he just got it from me. LOL

Jump Start has always been my favorite CD. We still have 2 from when my son was little. I can't get rid of them. They probably don't even work with my operating system, but hey I'm keeping them for the grandkids!:)
