JumpStart.com Review and Giveaway ends 11/20/11...



G I V E - A - W A Y #9



FREE 3 Month Membership To JumpStart.com

(after the 3 month membership expires there is absolutely no obligation for renewal! Winner will receive a printed certificate for the 3 month membership, so that you will have something to wrap and put under the tree!)

I was recently contacted by Knowledge Adventure, creators of the award-winning JumpStart and Math Blaster series of educational children's games. They offered us a 6 month membership to their JumpStart website and magical online world which is packed with friends, games and adventures!



From training dragons to exploring lost islands, JumpStart.com includes thousands of games and activities for kids ages 3-12. But what really sets JumpStart apart is their commitment to education. They believe that learning should be an adventure, not a chore. That’s why the games at JumpStart.com are specially designed to make math, reading and critical thinking fun!

How Does it Work?

After registering and installing their 3D engine, Unity, simply launch the game and let your kids explore! Inside the expansive world, players can design a character, decorate a house, adopt cuddly pets and play games with friends. As players complete learning games and other challenges at JumpStart, they earn coins and points that can be used to personalize the world even more.




We were very excited to get started with our JumpStart account. Setup was very easy which we loved as some online things can be difficult. Let me tell you what we love about JumpStart -

First of all as a parent we love that this is very educational. We worry about letting our kids be online, but with JumpStart there is no need to worry. Over the past 20 years, the JumpStart brand has earned the trust of over 30 million parents by providing safe, age-appropriate games for kids. We love that their parental controls, canned chat and pre-programmed names ensure our kids are completely safe and cannot share any personal information.

We also love that there are so many things to do on the site. You can add up to 6 profiles so each of your kids have their very own "Jumpeez" who they can name (Jace's is Jack Fungus Feet! lol) and then their individual profile keeps all of their records. After having a profile for each there are fun things for every age from 3-12 which we liked since our boys are 2 years apart.

For our 3 year old we loved an area called Storyland. Inside storyland there are many places to explore - Grady's favorite was the Movie Theater where you could view different movies where they sang songs like Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and the alphabet song! It was very upbeat and kept him busy and entertained!

Jace is only 6 but navigates so well on the computer. He was all over the site, exploring so many different things. We loved that he could do it by himself and knew it was all fun and educational so we didn't have to "babysit" him on it. He loved The Enchanted Sanctuary where he was able to hatch a dragon "mythie" which became his Jumpeez best friend!

There was also a game similar to the popular Angry Birds game called Help the Beavers Save Their Homes and you launch fish and other items trying to get rid of the lumberjacks who took over.


Overall we were thrilled to be able to review such a fun, educational site for our kids! Jace wants to play this everyday and keeps discovering new games and places on the map. Not only do you receive a membership to the online world's when you sign up for JumpStart but there are also many down loadable games with thousands of additional lessons which is an added bonus!
