JumpStart 3D Virtual World – Review
I’m sure most of you have heard about JumpStart before. Well they have created a new online virtual world for kids 3-10 years old. Kids can create avatars called Jumpeez for themselves and explore magical worlds, discovering and unlocking games, videos, and storybooks that help them practice essential skills from math to reading. Over the next year, they will continue to add more features, portals, and learning games to this site.
We recently had the chance to try out this new online world and Lil Man loves it. He’s playing every chance he can get, which probably isn’t often enough for him! He has fun creating his little Jumpeez character and playing the games. He doesn’t even realize he’s learning at the same time he’s playing. Big Bro has tried it out a few times too and he thinks it’s really cool that you can learn from a game.
Jumpstart has a blog and discussion boards for parents to check out too. The blog is a great way to stay updated on their latest news and the discussion boards are a great way to interact with other parents.
