So Your Kids Think They Can Dance?

Are your kids ready to show off their killer dance moves? Do they have what it takes to beat the competition in the ultimate dance face off? JumpStart’s new game the Dance Off gives your kids a chance to show off what they’ve got while they battle for the top spot against other Jumpeez. The sprinkler, the running man, the robot, your kids need to bring it all if they want to be revered as one of the best dancers in JumpStart.

The Dance Off Stage

Your kids can find the Dance Off stage at the back of the OctoLair in Poseidon’s Hangout next to the main stage. Tell them gather around the stage and wait for the dance alert alarm. When the stage lowers and they’ll be able to join the game and go toe-to-toe to prove they know how to get down!

This is one of the biggest additions to the JumpStart game. Here your kids can share a little bit of information about themselves with other Jumpeez. This page will come up when someone clicks on your child’s Jumpee. Your kids can also click on other Jumpeez to learn more about them and see their Profile Page. On this page, there is a spot for Jumpeez to share some of their favorite things like their favorite food, favorite sport and favorite musical style. Then there is the What’s Going On? section where Jumpeez can post updates about what’s going on with them while they’re playing the game. Your child will get to choose from a set of phrases and then post it to their page. Their buddies will see your child’s updates and can comment back on them.

The Home Page

Your child can now message their buddies right from the Home Page.

The Home Page has all of the toolbar’s most important resources all rolled into one. This page has a space for communicating with other Jumpeez where your child can read and send messages, view buddy requests and see their buddies’ updates. They can also check out all the news in JumpStart about new features and activities. Lastly, there is the Quick Launch tab so you can go to a game straight from the Home Page.

If your kids haven’t rescued a Voltage Dragon Egg from the nest, they are running out of time! We need everyone’s help to retrieve the eggs, so spread the word to your fellow Jumpeez!

In order to save JumpStart from the Evil Sorcerer Tangorra, Jumpeez can join the Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers (S.P.L.A.T). Everyday, members of S.P.L.A.T will be given clues about the hidden map pieces around JumpStart. These hidden map pieces ultimately lead to the Voltage Dragon Nest!

S.P.L.A.T members are working hard to rescue Voltage Dragon Eggs before Sorcerer Tangorra finds the nest!

Members of S.P.L.A.T have been working day and night trying to rescue these Voltage Dragon Eggs! If a single egg is left behind, Sorcerer Tangorra will complete his potion and remove all energy from JumpStart! The clock is ticking, they are now asking for all Jumpeez to help out on this mission to save JumpStart!

S.P.L.A.T is fun and rewarding! So many Jumpeez are enjoying being heroic members of the secret protection league against troublemakers! Members who find the Voltage Dragon Egg nest are also able to raise a rare voltage dragon of their own!

Fun, heroic, rewarding and adventurous! Join S.P.L.A.T and find the nest of rare eggs before it’s too late!

More Clues To Help Your Kids Defeat Tangorra!

UPDATE: S.P.L.A.T. wants to thank all Jumpeez who participated in this mission! Because of your kids, all the voltage dragon eggs were rescued from the evil Sorcerer Tangorra and JumpStart was saved! This mission is now over. 

Have your kids heard the latest news about what’s going on in JumpStart? A sorcerer named Tangorra is up to his old tricks, and we need your kids to stop him from draining all the power from JumpStart! Over the last week, S.P.L.A.T. has been working against Tangorra by sending clues to Jumpeez so they can collect map pieces and find the Voltage Dragon Egg nest before Tangorra does. However, we had to make the clues tricky to stop Tangorra from figuring them out, so here are some extra clues to help your kids find all 7 map pieces!

1. Go to the place where sand meets water and look to the right of a red and white tower.

2. The best Hangout in JumpStart has a very special place, where your kids can always see a band and dance the night away. But if they get thirsty there’s no need to worry, just have them go behind the counter to find what they need in a hurry.

3. Find a big tent in a magical land where your kids will always need a good broom in hand.

4. Don’t be distracted by an arcade or movie theater, because where the next map piece is located there’s just nothing sweeter. Look around near the place that can fire your kids towards a wheel that gives you coins in a pretty good deal.

5. Go the canyon filled with adventures and jump in the water to search for hidden treasures.

6. Go for a ride that will make your kids scream and shout in a place where Poseidon likes to Hangout.

7. For the last map piece your kids will have to search low and high, around the place where mythies learn to fly.

Have your kids use the intel from S.P.L.A.T., clues in the communicator, these hints, and their best critical thinking skills to find all the map pieces and rescue their own voltage dragon before Tangorra finds the nest and drains all the power from Jumpstart! We’re counting on you Jumpeez. Good luck!

Someone Is Mixing Up Trouble in JumpStart!

UPDATE: S.P.L.A.T. wants to thank all Jumpeez who participated in this mission! Because of your kids, all the voltage dragon eggs were rescued from the evil Sorcerer Tangorra and JumpStart was saved! This mission is now over. 

JumpStart needs your child’s help! An evildoer is trying to drain the electricity out of the JumpStart power plant. It seems the devious and despicable Sorcerer Tangorra is back and brewing up another potion to suck all the energy out of JumpStart. We need all Jumpeez to act fast because Tangorra’s potion is just about complete. He only needs to find the last ingredient, the rare and magical Voltage Dragon Eggs. To stop Tangorra from draining every last ounce of power from JumpStart we need your kids to find the lost nest that holds the Voltage Dragon Eggs before he does! If your kids are successful in this mission they will be rewarded with the honor of raising one of the rarest and most mystical creatures JumpStart has ever seen, the Voltage Dragon.

This mission, if your kids chose to accept it, will make them an honorary member of the Special Protection League Against Troublemakers or S.P.L.A.T.. Numerous Jumpeez before them have joined this infamous band of heroes and do-gooders to rid JumpStart of evil invaders. Now it’s your kids’ turn. As a member of S.P.L.A.T. your kids will embark on a journey to find pieces of a map that shows the way to the Voltage Dragon nest.

Eggnapping

It’s up to your kids to decode the map and find their way to the hidden nest!

Each day your kids will be presented with a new clue that will lead them closer to rescuing the Voltage Dragon Eggs. So, make sure your kids come back every day to get the next clue to another map piece. Some of these clues might be a little tricky to decipher so your kids should ask their fellow Jumpeez to join in to help them stop Sorcerer Tangorra. The fate of JumpStart is your kids’ hands. We know that they will stop the evil Tangorra and rescue the Voltage Dragons from harm.

What do your kids think of the mission to save JumpStart?
