Jumpstart Review

The Review!

We love games at our house, board, computer, video, they’re all fun! Throw in educational content and that’s like the cherry on top! When we were asked to review the Jumpstart 3D Virtual World we jumped right in! My 8 year old daughter, Ashley, has been enjoying the game almost every day! She has loved being able to create her own character, called a Jumpeez, design her own house and adopt a pet! I love that she can navigate the site and game safely on her own. We both like the mission based adventures you are given in the game. The missions definitely give Ashley a sense of adventure and a feeling of accomplishment with a job well done as she completes each one. I believe the missions are great for any age since you are given instructions and reminders of your task throughout, as well as tons of exploring freedom.

Ashley has been playing in Adventure Land (K-2) where she is currently on a mission to save the Lost Shores from the Punk Punks! She really got a kick out of being able to “jump” on the sleeping Punk Punks for higher jumping power. I find myself wanting to play along, even though she doesn’t need, or want, my help :)

Also as a member you will have access to all of the 4 Virtual World Downloads!

  • Jumpstart world Preschool: Jumpstart 3D virtual world ages 3-5 My first adventure
  • JumpStart World Kindergarten: JumpStart 3D Virtual World Ages 4-6, Legend of Grizzly McGuffin
  • JumpStart World 1st Grade: JumpStart 3D Virtual World Ages 5-7, Trouble in Town
  • JumpStart World 2nd grade: JumpStart 3D Virtual World Ages 6-8, Quest for the Color Meister

Ashley absolutely loves the Color Meister Download. I love watching her get excited about learning and enjoy seeing her take pride in herself when she completes a game or earns a new badge piece! Of course one of her favorite things to do in-game is SHOP! lol, what girl doesn’t like to shop. She can buy items to spruce up her wardrobe, home and pets. Also, she can buy things to decorate the town! The games in Color Meister are great and cover a wide range of topics from language to money. I’ve been having fun creating Blimp Messages that Ashley can see in-game and creating Super-Gem Rewards that she can choose from her mailbox! So fun!

I feel that my daughter has only scratched the surface of this great game and we cannot wait to keep exploring, learning and having fun! I know Ashley is having fun when she laughs out loud & talks to the game while playing! I’m so glad we were offered this opportunity!

    I love to watch both of my sons (age 6 and 3) play on jumpstart. They get very excited to go on new missions and earning badges. They get really excited when they unlock an animal. My oldest son has wanted to join so that he can visit "lost island". Winning a free membership for three months would be perfect to make sure that they will continue to play on jumpstart and that the money we spend for the membership will be used wisely. Thank you for considering us for this membership – Amy Parks – parks3008@hotmail.com

    I like how it gives instructions my son will be able to understand.

  3. I love how much fun my kids have. They're learning, they're having fun, they do chores to earn the computer time to do this – it's a Mother's dream!

    One thing I like about JumpStart.com is that they're learning and having fun at the same time!

  24. I love that Jumpstart is EDUCATIONAL, not just another computer game for kids to zone out in front of. I think my daughter and I would enjoy playing and learning together with this program.
