Jumpstart.com…a quick little review

Around here TV, video and computer time is pretty limited.  (For the kids anyway ;) ).  So when I heard about Jumpstart.com I thought the same thing I always think… I’ll pass.  I am so very glad I changed my mind.  I love, love, love it… and I don’t think I’m alone!

Big and Little M have been soaking up this virtual world and learning in the process!  You know I can squeeze a lesson into anything and with Jumpstart.com… I can take a little brain break.  (They are doing the teaching for me.)

 What I love about Jumpstart.com

~We were installed and ready to play in about 20 seconds (which was good because Big M couldn’t wait to get started)!

~ Each membership comes with 6 accounts.  So M and M can have their own player, save their own achievements and display the name they chose.

~ The names they chose.  Big M loves his name so much he calls himself “Mike Lavahawk” even when he’s not playing.

~ When the kids start up for the first time they are able to design their Jumpee.  They get to choose; clothes, hair style (and color), skin color, and facial features.

~There is a giant map that the kids can click into to guide them throughout the virtual world.  (You can also select lands based on age recommendations).

~ As the kids are playing, the games and lands alternate between mouse and keyboard.  I LOVE that!!!!  In the few short weeks we have been enjoying Jumpstart.com Little M’s keyboard skills have increased drastically!

~ There are really cool games.  Big M was able to design a race track and then actually race on it. HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?  Little M found a letter song book (which we heard for a few days… no surprise there).

~ Parent friendly features include a game guide that describes each world and The JumpStart Blog that keeps you up-to-date on changes.

~When Cousin T stopped by for a sleepover we were able to let her design her own Jumpee (because we can have 6).

~An unexpected bonus has been that M and M have found a peaceful cooperation that we sometimes long for with one person at a time games.  Little M was even able to help her big brother out a few times.

What I don’t love about Jumpstart.com

~Well, ummmm, I’m a blogger so I don’t love sharing the computer.  With ANYONE!

I would absolutely recommend Jumpstart.com!  Membership is $7.99 a month, $74.99 if you want to pay for a year or a one time payment of $149.99 that gives you lifetime membership.  If you want one click right on through!

p.s.  You might start thinking stocking stuffer… yikes is it time to start thinking stocking stuffers???
