JumpStart 3D Virtual World & Giveaway

 Sorry for drawing this a day late!  Crazy week!  The winner, via random.org which chose comment #10, is Terri of Accidentally Homeschooling.  Congratulations, Terri!

This giveaway is now closed.

JumpStart 3D Virtual World is an absolutely adorable, adventure based world where your kids can have fun, and learn while they're at it.  Math, reading, and critical thinking skills are taught as your child plays.  Already quite familiar with the Jumpstart name and reputation, I was quite excited to have the opportunity to not only review this product, but share a three month membership with one of my readers as a giveaway (directions for entering may be found towards the end of this post)!

As I was given a list of questions to guide this review, I thought it might be a fun change of pace to do a Q & A format.  If you'd like to learn more about the specifics of what JumpStart has to offer, please click the link at the beginning of this post.  They provide all the information you need to get started right there on their site. 

Q. How do your kids interact with the game? 

A. My children are already quite familiar with virtual worlds and were able to jump right into playing without any help from me.  I left them alone to do their thing and soon they were excited about helping a dragon hatch and exploring the new world.  Originally I had only signed up my 8 and 10 year olds, but my 11 year old quickly asked for an account as well and was soon immersed in the Enchanted Sanctuary.  This area proved to be a favorite among them all.  Hatching dragons will do that to a kid.  Hey, even this mom thought that was pretty cool.  

Q. What is their favorite game or quest? 

A. "I liked hatching the dragon. But I forgot to feed him every day." -Breanne, 11

"My favorite is Robo-a-go-go. Oh, and the dancing game in the arcade. And I like playing HideNSeek with my dragon." -Nicole, 10

"My favorite thing is the Scavenger Hunt. It's awesome. And Robo-ago-go is my favorite thing too." -Ryan, 8


Q. What is your take on kids using technology to learn? 

A.  I am a self professed Gamer Mom and have been dubbed the Gadget Queen by my friends, so it should come as no surprise to my readers that I am a huge fan of technology in the homeschool.  My children enjoy games and online worlds as much as I do.  Why not use this time to reinforce and develop their academics?  But if this is not done in a creative, engaging, interactive and visual appealing (key words for me!) manner, it will soon give way to more exciting pursuits or be dubbed as simply "school".  I am happy to report that the JumpStart 3D Virtual world meets all of my requirements.  It is well done and well received by my family.

Q. Do you like the parent content, such as the JumpStart Blog?






A.  The JumpStart Blog  is the place to get the inside scoop on what's new and exciting in the JumpStart World.  It would be a great way to get your kids interested in new developments and an excellent opportunity to interact and share your opinion, as there are polls and requests for input throughout.  

I have to admit to having a crazy summer and not checking out this blog as much as I would have liked.  Just from what I see now, I'm regretting this. There's a Design JumpStart's Next Mythie button that's calling to me, an update on a new hang-out spot, and the most adorable graphic of the most adorable little Pegasus.  Seems like a great way to stay informed and get even more from your JumpStart membership.


What's a membership include? So glad you asked!  Membership includes the online world and 4 downloadable games for up to 6 kids.  It's priced at $7.99 a month, $74.99 a year, or $149.99 for a lifetime membership.
