I was provided with a JumpStart membership at no cost by Knowledge Adventure in order to test the products’ abilities and give my own personal opinions on it. The opinions I have given are mine and those my family and may differ from others but were not influenced by the company or the free product provided.

This past weekend we were all under the weather so the kids and I cuddled under a big fluffy comforter and watched a Madagascar movie marathon. They love Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria and all of the other Madagascar characters including the penguins and King Julian. That’s why when I heard that Jumpstart.com recently added the Madagascar characters and New York City to the children’s online virtual world game I knew Kora & Logan would be so excited.


Jumpstart MadagascarI was right. They were thrilled! Here’s a video of them explaining why they like it and how fun the new characters and areas are:

JumpStart.com recently expanded the Central Park Zoo area to include more than just the zoo. As you can see in the video above they have added New York City, Times Square, Central Park, and Coney Island.

JumpStart New York City Times Square

JumpStart Coney Island

JumpStart Coney Island Roller Coaster

JumpStart Central Park

JumpStart GloriaThe Penguin headquarters is fun place for kids to check out, laugh along with the penguins, and get new missions.

JumpStart MissionJumpStart has so much to explore and these new areas and lands making the game even more fun. I love the creativity of the worlds, lands, and minigames and I think it’s wonderful that it has always offered educational opportunities too. The kids have so much fun playing they don’t even realize they are learning too.

JumpStart NYC Roller SkatingAnother fun feature of JumpStart that we all love and keeps us coming back for more is the seasonal elements. For example right now because we are at the beginning of February there are Valentine’s conversation hearts the kids can pick up as they explore. There’s also a Main Street Box of Chocolate Maze and DownTown’s Heart Lane Ride.

Jumpstart Valentine's DayKora & Logan also like exploring other areas in JumpStart.com as well including:

  • StoryLand – for 3-5 year olds
  • AdventureLand & MarineLand – for kindergarteners through 2nd graders
  • FutureLand & Uncle Milton’s ScienceLand – for 2nd graders on up
  • Enchanted Sanctuary – where kids can hatch and raise their own mythical pet
