Here at JumpStart we are always looking for ways to make our games even more fun for your kids. That’s why we want to hear from our loyal fans! We’ve added a lot of great content to the game and we are dying to know what area your kids love the most!
Here are just a few to refresh your kid’s memory:
Windy Hollows: In this magical game, Jumpeez have an opportunity to collect ingredients in the secret room, fly around on broomsticks, and brew up potions to turn their Jumpee buddies into silly charms! Windy Hollows has also received a magical upgrade of two new charms that were designed by Jumpeez. BroomBall is one of our popular games that is located in Windy Hollows. No wonder this is a favorite among so many Jumpeez!
In Windy Hollows, Jumpeez can select a charm to create and then search for the ingredients throughout the magical world.
This awesome charm was designed by Alex Black Cloud, one of our loyal Jumpeez!
Enchanted Sanctuary: Jumpeez can practice their caretaking skills in the Enchanted Sanctuary by hatching their very own dragon and then raising it from a baby to an adult. After the dragon is fully-grown, it will be released to the sanctuary where it can fly, and Jumpeez can fly along with them!
MarineLand: In MarineLand, Jumpeez are often “to the rescue” as they help Kat the mermaid and the other underwater residents of MarineLand save the ocean from destructive punk punks. Jumpeez can help save the ocean by completing various reading, math and critical thinking missions which helps to keep everyone safe.
Poseidon’s Hangout: This is a super cool hangout where Jumpeez can visit a funky nightclub, The Octolair, and chat. Jumpeez can also ride the Screamer which often leaves Jumpeez with a thrilling adrenaline rush!
Groove on to the Raymies Band in the OctoLair!
The Screamer is sure to excitedly frighten even the toughest Jumpee out!
Which area is your child’s favorite?

Did your kids know that when they play games and explore JumpStart.com, that they can also increase their rank at the same time? As your child’s rank goes up, they earn special benefits for having a higher rank.
Are your children unsure about what their rank is? It’s simple for them to check. They just need to click on the JumpStart communicator and go to the area titled, JumpStars. Jumpeez can see what rank they’re currently at, as well as how close they are to the next rank.
If your child currently has a low rank, don’t worry! It’s easy to increase your rank. All your kids have to do is earn more JumpStars! JumpStars can be earned by exploring different areas of the JumpStart world, as well as by playing more games. Make sure your children visit the Brain Training Arcade in DownTown to play games and to earn all the JumpStars they possibly can.
As your child reaches a higher rank, they will be able to buy special clothes at the Threadz store. Another benefit is that better ship options are available in Shipwreck Lagoon. Your child should use every advantage they can get if they want to win the race against their friends!
If your child wants to see where their rank compares to others, make sure they check out the Hall of Fame. Is your child near the top?
How does your rank compare to those of your friends’, Jumpeez? Are your children ready to increase their rank?

Update: This FunZone is now gone.
Ahoy, Mateys! Have your kids checked out the new FunZone yet? If not, encourage them to grab a hook and a pirate hat and head on over to the new Pirate FunZone! Pirate Jumpeez are sure to have fun exploring this new territory, where they can take a ride on one of the ships with other pirates, collect skulls and search for hidden treasures!
The Pirate FunZone has a lot of argh-tastic activities for Jumpeez to explore!
Do your kids want to see the sights first? Encourage them to hop on board one of the many pirate ships and sail away with other pirates! This is a great way to see all of the pirate land.
Sail along one of the many pirate ships that give a full view of the pirate land.
Your kids will see skulls scattered throughout the FunZone. If your kids love an adventure, they will love jumping high and low to collect these skulls!
Finding skulls will require Jumpees to be brave and creative! They are located in bright and sometimes dark places.
And, of course, what would a pirate land be without hidden treasures? Jumpees will be challenged to swim through the treacherous waters and travel to the dark underground to find their hidden treasure. The skulls will help any brave pirates find their way!
Find out what the Hidden Treasure has inside!
Arg! Are your kids pirated and up for the challenge? Encourage them to head over to MainStreet for these exciting activities. What has your child found so far?
