My kids have been using Jumpstart Online for quite a while now and have enjoyed the program so much, it is one program I have decided to keep in our house and will continue to use! You can read about our previous review of JumpStart to find out all the information about JumpStart Online to see all the amazing features they offer.
One of the things that really keeps my kids interested is the fact that they are always changing and adding things in JumpStart land. Just about every time your kids get on there are new things for them to investigate for instance because it is close to Thanksgiving they have added a giant Mayflower boat in the middle of town and kids can go on a Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt around town to earn a prize! Well, now JumpStart has partnered with Dream Works, and has released Central Park Zoo on JumpStart Online.
When Jumpstart started updating their blog letting people know there was going to be something big opeining up in JumpStart world soon, and Cody (10) and Anthony (8) found out what it was they were so excited to check it out. and boys were Cody (10) and Anthony (8). On Opening day they got their school done really quick and even completed all their chores without being told once, just to play on the new Central Park Zoo on JumpStart Online! Once in the world exploring they were just as happy, laughing and having a great time exploring the new world and will often let me know about something they have earned or played on the new land.
So What's In Central Park Zoo?
Children will explore the Central Park Zoo with their Madagascar fiends Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria. The new Central Park Zoo area is similar to other JumpStart Areas, your child can walk around the zoo choosing where they would like to go. Children can visit the Madagascar animals at the Central Park Zoo they can learn educational facts about the different animals and play slider puzzles of each of the animals as well.
After kids have explored the Central Park Zoo they can hop on a train for a ride over to Venice, Italy. Some of the fun things they will see while in Venice are
- Movie Theatre: Where you can watch movie tailors of upcoming movies.
- Madagascar Store: New store where kids can purchase new clothing for their Jumpee.
- Italian Facts: Kids learn important Italian facts as they walk around town.
- Hide n' seek with Mort: Mort hides in Venice and its your job to find him, if your kids need help finding him the first clue will give you a hint, the second clue tells you where he is hiding.
- Italian Art: All through out the town there is Italian Art that you can click on for information about the artwork.
- Photo Bomb: You can use your camera to take pictures of the photo bombers...
- Zoovenier Prize Wheel: Where kids can daily collect any of the souvenirs by shooting them self out of a cannon!
- Riko's Kaboom: Where you have to spin to keep finding the glowing box and collect them all in a 1 minute time period.
Kids can also sneak under the Central Park Zoo into the Penguin Headquarters to help the Madagascar Penguins collect souvenirs from around the town, mix the souvenirs into the morph machine and turn unsuspecting people into zoo animals.
