Jumpstart.com is an “award-winning adventure-based 3D virtual world that is super-personalized, wildly imaginative and really fun“.
Jumpstart is not just a game though, it teaches children how to use a mouse, the ABC’s, shapes and colors, numbers, math, reading, and critical thinking skills “so kids get a real jump start in life“.
The 3 Dimensional aspect is really appealing to my children, and they’ve loved making their own avitars, adopting a pet and using the interactive maps to navigate around.
I especially love that the virtual world it is age appropriate for each child. My children can log in under their name and it will take them to areas appropriate for their age. My twins use the 0-4 years of age section, while my 5 year old uses the area for 4-7 year olds, and so on.
Major retailers everywhere like Target, Costco, and Toys R us carry a variety of the DVD’s, or one can exclusively play online at Jumpstart.com.
My kids play with THE LEGEND OF GRIZZLY MCGUFFIN which has 2 available levels to play with 10 additional levels to open up with one’s online account.
I LOVE that one can customize the “adventure” for one’s child by sending them special messages.
