Shaun is not a fan of learning. When it’s time to sit and do homework or practice writing it usually results in a meltdown. I’ve tried different methods, rewards, bribes, punishment and fun education but I seem to get the same results. I worry because he’s only going into 1st grade and the battles are exhausting.

I was recently given the opportunity to try out the 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. Since 1991, Knowledge Adventure® has set the standard in kids’ software by creating the finest educational products for use in the home and the classroom. Today, Knowledge Adventure’s JumpStart® and MathBlaster® products invite kids to learn through endless gaming adventures in 3D virtual worlds. By blending learning and entertainment, Knowledge Adventure’s adventure-based learning inspires kids’ minds through immersed play. A subsidiary of Knowledge Holdings, Inc., the company is privately-held and based in Torrance, California.

I remember using Jumpstart products when Sabreena was younger so I didn’t hesitate to get Shaun on the computer to try it out. He LOVED that he could make his own character; his avatar has black hair a yellow baseball cap and it along with his skill level and progress are saved for future visits. Shaun is always going; talking, moving, fidgeting, itching, mumbling, but he was calm and intense for about an hour while he took a tour of Adventureland. In AdventureLand, kids are invited to explore a mysterious lost island off the coast of JumpStart. After mastering the speed, skills and moves needed to survive the mission on Training Island, players are whisked off to Lost Island, where new adventures await around every corner. He completely enjoyed his 1st visit to Jumpstart and now asks to play. We’ve had educational games in the past but he’s not a fan since he knows they are educational. Jumpstart hides some of the learning with games and songs so he just thinks he’s playing but has to work a little at it.
Jumpstart offers a respectable Parent’s spot also. With a discussion board, art to personalize the kid’s computer or even print and a blog that is chock-full of articles and updates about Jumpstart you can always keep up with your child. With games and activities for kids aged 3-10 this is definitely something that is perfect for a family with children of different ages. No need to buy one game for each, they can each have their own profile with their information and proficiency saved. A great buy at $7.99/month or $74.99/year Jumpstart is an investment into your child’s education
