I do have a bone to pick with Jump Start, I couldn't get Will off the computer the first time we tried it out we were on the computer for hours. What I love about Jump Start is that the learning is actually fun. Will thought he was playing a game. Later that day, (that is once I finally got him off of the computer) I heard him singing some of the songs and he kept asking to play again and again. He had no idea he was learning while playing, which is the way learning should be.
Jump Start is an award-winning adventure-based 3D virtual world that is personalized, your child can create their own character and jump right into the game. There are plenty of areas to help you if you get stuck too.
The JumpStart virtual world is broken into three main segments, each targeted towards a different age range. Story Land (for ages 3-5), Adventure Land (6-8’s) and Futureland (8-10’s)
Each section offers various levels of challenge and game play as your child progresses.
The game is free to try out and lets kids play in one of the world’s themed zones, but to access the majority of the content families will need to pay a $7.99 monthly subscription fee (per family not per child.) You can purchase memberships online or in stores such as Toys R Us, Best Buy and Rite Aid.
Jump Start also has a blog to accompany their main site where you will find many updates.
Will and I had a lot of fun playing/learning with JumpStart and I am thankful for finding a fun, interactive learning game for Will. Would you like to give JumpStart a spin?
