jump start .com... win it!


Most moms have heard of the learning company Jump Start- but did you know they have a fabulous website?

They do. It's jumpstart.com.

And my kids (ages 4, 6 and 8) are HOOKED!

To begin, each kid signs in to play separately and they get to make their own avatars they play with called a "Jumpee", which my kids think is so fun! I think they are *supposed* to look like the child- Tessa's has purple pigtails :)



Then they are off to play- there is a "Story Land" area perfect for 3-5 year olds, an "Adventure Land" area for 5-8 year olds and soon there will be a "Future Land" area for ages 8-10... so there is something for everyone if you have little ones at home!

My kids have spent MANY HOURS playing Jump Start, they have been exploring new worlds, going on adventures, collecting gems, finding and unlocking games, etc., and the whole time they are learning math, reading and critical thinking skills!



Jonah and Tessa (ages 4 and 6) have spent alot of time playing it together and it has been alot of fun listening to them try to "figure it out" as a team! And they are so proud of themselves when they do :)

I love the fact that it's learning, totally kid friendly and SAFE! If I need them occupied for a bit I feel comfortable leaving the room, knowing they are having fun on a protected website :)

They also have a fun and informative blog as well as a "parent" area on the website to keep the parents connected.

To get all of the benefits as a member it's just $7.99 per family a month!

**********

Jump Start.com is generously giving away a 3 month membership to one lucky reader!

Just leave a comment and you will be entered... your kids (and you!) will LOVE it!

oh wow, this looks SO cool!!
I would LOVE to win, my 6 yr old son LOVES to play video/computer games but as a mom I of course want him spending that time playing educational games, which a lot of the time aren't very much fun. But this?! THIS looks like a blast!

Neat! I'd love to try it!
Also those two necklaces you put back in your shop are adorable! I really like them both. But the "you are my sunshine" is perfect because i sing that to both my boys.
Have a great day!

We're just starting to venture into the world of video games and are really trying to be selective. I love hearing that this is a safe place. We'll be checking it out.

So, I've been dying to know...What did you say to the kids as you were snapping the incredible picture in your header? Each expression is awesome. Good job capturing the moment.

I purchased Jump Start Reading and Jump Start Kindergarten years ago and it never gets old. I am babysitting this summer and it keeps the kids occupied with a fun way to learn.
