Jump Start - Review & Giveaway- CLOSED

We have just recently started teaching our older girls how to use a computer.  With so much bad stuff on the Internet readily available for children I was happy to find JumpStart, a virtual, educational place for kids.

The Creators of JumpStart:
For more than 15 years, Knowledge Adventure has set the standard in kids’ software by creating the finest educational products for use in the home and the classroom. In addition to our CD games, we’ve launched a browser-based virtual world at www.JumpStart.com, 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 teach everything from math to reading. Over the next year, we will continue to add more features, portals and learning games to this site.

What is JumpStart:
JumpStart is an award-winning adventure-based 3D virtual world that is super-personalized, wildly imaginative and really fun, but don't let that fool you - it also teaches math, reading, and critical thinking skills so kids get a real jump start in life.

I was contacted by Jump Start and was given a free membership for my children to try out the virtual world.
My three older children were very excited that they would be getting to play on the computer, and not a day goes by that they don't ask me if they can get on the JumpStart website. 

Each person is given an avatar, they are able to name it, dress it, and even give it a home.  There are many things and places to explore in the Jump Start world.  We are slowly getting the hang of how it works.  And I am slowly losing my computer to the kids!
It really has been fun for all of us to try and complete the different levels and earn the coins.  Plus my kids are learning at the same time!
I think this is a fun and educational online website for kids and encourage you to give it a try.  Beware -you may lose your computer to your kids!

Win it!
JumpStart has offered a free 3 month membership to one of my readers.
