My six year old son has enjoyed playing MathBlaster.com for several months and we were recently introduced to the companion online game, JumpStart®.com 3D Virtual World. Since he has enjoyed playing several other JumpStart® educational computer games in the past, he was excited to play this online game. Of course, I first wanted to make sure that it would be safe for him to play online and learned that I can set parental controls and the game has pre-programmed names to ensure that kids are completely safe and cannot share any personal information giving me peace of mind to let my children begin their learning adventure.
JumpStart.com has been a big hit with my children. So much in fact that I let them earn “credits” by completing chores and doing well with their school work which they can trade in towards minutes to play their new favorite game. I appreciate that JumpStart.com makes learning fun and is something that they are willing to work hard towards playing.
After launching the colorful and engaging virtual world, my son and his siblings began to explore JumpStart and can design a character, decorate a house, adopt cuddly pets and play games with friends. My son’s favorite part has been adopting a “dragon” and then feeding it, decorating it and playing with it. When they successfully complete a learning game or challenge, they are thrilled to earn “coins” and points that they can use to personalize their JumpStart® world even more.
JumpStart.com allows children to explore and play for FREE but I highly recommend the membership plan which includes up to six kids and offers additional bonus features such as:
