With Independence Day fast approaching, how will you be celebrating in JumpStart? Tell your Jumpee pals that MainStreet is hosting an extra special summertime treat. And although some of them may remember it from years past, summer’s still the perfect time to get together for this larger than life picnic!
This is not your average picnic!
Just one step onto Frankie’s red, white, and blue blanket and you’ll be in for a big surprise. Get ready to see the JumpStart world from all new perspective, Jumpeez!
It’s alright to play with your food in this FunZone!
From colorful cupcakes and jiggling gelatin, to burgers and cola, there’s something to fit everyone’s taste. But remember this isn’t your average picnic, so skate a few rounds on the picnic plates or jump around on the bouncing burgers, because this food was made to be played with, not eaten! To get a full view of all the fun, don’t forget to take a ride down the slippery soda fountain slide.

Update: Garden Defense is now open in your neighborhood!
Log into JumpStart to check it out.
So, do you remember that top secret game we mentioned last week, the one that our pal ZuZu was going to bring? Well she decided that it was time to let you in on the secret! After all, she’ll need you and your Jumpee to keep the gardens growing when Garden Defense arrives to JumpStart.
Lend a helping hand to our helpful hippo, ZuZu!
With a number of pesky parasites on the move around your garden, our resident expert in all things green decided to take it upon herself to find a way to stop them from ruining all of the glorious little greenies. And that’s where you come in! Since we’re all about working together here in JumpStart, we thought we’d trust you Jumpeez with the task of controlling the growing bug population.
Follow the trail to protect against the pests!
Think you have what it takes to blast the bugs and level up in Garden Defense? Then head over to your neighborhood when Garden Defense arrives to the game. All you’ll need to do is look out for the trail of crawling critters in your neighborhood. When the game is ready, you can follow them directly to your garden where ZuZu will be waiting to explain the rest!

The JumpStart team has been hard at work on some super cool surprises just for you and your Jumpee pals! Now, we aren’t ready to spill the beans on our latest project just yet, but we thought it was about the right time that you meet our new pal, ZuZu Petals! Some of you may already know her from Camp JumpStart, but within the next few weeks you’ll be seeing more of ZuZu in the JumpStart virtual world. So sit back and let us tell you more about her!
ZuZu’s got a green thumb even without the gloves!
If you couldn’t tell by looking at her, ZuZu is quite the fan of gardening! With her big floppy hat and her brightly covered gloves, she can usually be found tending to her precious plants. She puts a ton of hard work into her garden and growing her “little greenie” friends, so it’s really no wonder that she spends more time surrounded by them than she does actual Jumpeez.
Ask her anything about any JumpStart plant, and you might have trouble getting her to stop talking. But any of you neighborhood gardeners would understand. There’s just something magical about growing something from a small seed into a living plant.
Sure, she seems a little odd at first but it’s her cute little quirks that make her unique. So when she finally arrives to the JumpStart, don’t hesitate to say hello! When it comes down to it, she’s super sweet and just might have something fun for you to do!
Let us know what you think of our newest JumpStart pal, ZuZu Petals! Are you excited for what she has planned for you and your Jumpee?

When summer comes around, there’s nothing like being outdoors and enjoying a nice ocean breeze. So why don’t you share the experience with a wonderful water loving friend! BE sure to check all the charming choices now available in the JumpStart Petz Shop.
Pinch, the cranky crab
JS Coins: 80
Favorite JS Area: MarineLand
Everyone gets a little bit cranky from time to time, and Pinch is no exception. He is a crab after all! But don’t let his shining shell fool you. He’s quite the loveable creature under that hard exterior!
Shoreline, the wave-loving seahorse
JS Coins: 80
Favorite JS Area: Lost Island in AdventureLand
Shoreline loves catching waves on new shores. We’ve noticed that this seahorse really has a thirst for adventure. But what really sets Shoreline apart is his courage to enter into uncharted waters.

Favorite JS Area: Poseidon’s Hangout!
With her unique style, Trish is all about socializing with friends in Poseidon’s Hangout. She just might love the OctoLair almost as much as she loves the ocean! If you’re looking for a fun time, grab on to her fin for a quick spin or game of Dance Off!
Harbor, the snowy seal
JS Coins: 80
Favorite JS Area: The Boardwalk
Harbor isn’t really a summer sea creature like this rest of this precocious pack, but this snow loving seal is definitely ready for some sun! Known for his ability to keep things fun filled and action packed, Harbor can often be found celebrating the seasons around the ever changing FunZones.
Just talking about these petz has us dreaming about the new summertime specials at the MainStreet, DownTown and Boardwalk FunZones. So grab a pal and join us for some fun in the sun! Which one of these petz will you be picking up this season?
