Party like a peacock! Our charm contest gave us some great new charms for Windy Hollows, like the T-Rex. Soon, your kids will be able to see our other contest winner—the Party Peacock—in the game!
The Jumpstart artists have been excitedly transforming Savannah SweetDragon’s amazing partyin’ peacock drawing into a live charm for your child’s Jumpee! Here is what they have created so far.
Who wouldn’t want to transform their Jumpee friends into this partygoer?
This ever-social peacock has fun literally “streaming” from his feathers! Are your kids excited to brew up a party?
