Review & Giveaway ~ JumpStart 3D Virtual World

Jump start is one of my favorite companies. They have such amazing educational products for kids. I have been using jump start products since my oldest was about 3 years of age and we still use the workbooks in our house. When I was contacted to try out Jump Starts new educational virtual world, I jumped at the chance!

When you first start you are able to create avatars called Jumpeez. You can choose the color of your skin from pink to green to your actual skin tone, what clothes you wear, which hairstyle you like and what kind of mouth and eyes you want. After you create your Jumpeez there is so much to do:
  • You can meet and talk to JumpStart characters
  • explore the world and make some discoveries
  • There is an arcade with tons of games
  • You can even visit the movie theater
  • You can ride in a canoe
  • Race a car
  • Paint pictures
  • Take pictures with your camera
  • Adopt a pet and teach him tricks
  • Go grocery shopping
  • Visit the post office
  • Have tons of fun collecting Stars!
The Jumpstart 3d world is very cool. It reminds me of that first Mario Brothers in 3d. My daughter absolutely loves playing this game. I will admit, for my readers, I also played some games. Let me tell you, very fun. The best part, kids are learning! The games and characters are so cool, you don't even realize it. From experience though, it is sinking in. This is a virtual world you can feel good about letting your kids have computer time to play.

Cami has been coming home from school every day and asking to play Jump Start as soon as she walks in the door. She loves her character which is an adorable little blond in a pink dress, she loves designing her house, she loves the games, she literally loves everything about it.

You can play this game for free or pay for a membership. When you are a paying member, there are downloads that you can get of Jump Start games for different age ranges. The website has a great resource section called Fun for Parents with articles, tips, downloads (screensavers, etc) for you to enjoy as well.

Thanks to the wonderful people over at Knowledge Adventure, one of my readers will win a 3 month membership to Jumpstart 3D Virtual World!

I read the 'top 10 tips for talking with kids'.
I like the tip of 'Give your child an invitation to talk. Use starters like "Tell me about your day at school." '
I do this everyday, my daughter like talking about her day and what she did and it provokes some very interesting conversation. Plus, it makes her feel important and valued.
