Do you and your kids know what special day happens to be fall on this coming weekend? This Sunday is the day to be a good neighbor and throw a block party because it’s Neighbor Day! And in JumpStart we’re all for being a good neighbor and helping out our fellow Jumpeez.
Your kids can celebrate in their neighborhood!
We even have a few achievements for things like “The Friendliest Neighbor,” or simply being a “Good Neighbor!” See if your kids are ready to rise through JumpStart’s ranks and celebrate their buddies by throwing a block party of their own. Or if they’d rather just join in on a celebration, they can always browse though the selection of happening events at the Neighborhood Party Board.
Customize your neighborhood FunZone and throw a party to celebrate your Neighbors!
How will you and your kids be celebrating the day? Introduce yourselves to the people on your block and you’ll never stop seeing the benefits of being a good neighbor!

We talk a lot about Mythies here on the blog, so it’s about time that we give your kids a lesson on our other enchanted companions, the Egglings! After all, every mythie whether it’s a Dragon, a Pegasus, or a Hornhowlie, starts out as a little egg.
Do your kids have an eggling of their own?
If they haven’t done so already, have your kids take a visit to The Enchanted Sanctuary to get an eggling pal of their own. These cute companions are an absolute dream to adventure with through JumpStart! And by securing their Eggling and completing all of Ivy’s tasks, your kids will even be rewarded with a few coins and jumpstars to help them rise through our ranks!
Want more Eggling tips and tricks?
