A Treasure of Petz Await You DownTown

Looking for a new playful companion? The Petz store just received a shipment of brand new pals to accompany you on all your JumpStart adventures! We have a large selection of friends to choose from that includes robots, owls, ninjas and much more! Read on to see some of the special Petz that have arrived with our huge St. Patty’s Day makeover!

Olexei, the Wise Owl

Olexei

Owls are known to be filled with wisdom. Take this Pet along with you while completing challenging games like Lucky Ducky. He might not give you any answers, but he will give you the confidence to earn your best scores!

Sea Biscuit, the Land-Dwelling Seahorse

Sea Biscuit

Sea Biscuit may be timid around the Beach and the Boardwalk, but he is an expert on the racetrack. Bring him with you to SpeedDrome for good luck in games like DuneBuggy Racer!

Snaps, the Hungry Plant

Snaps

If you are a chef in training, then you have to go with Snaps. With its pointy teeth, this Venus Flytrap knows a thing or two about a good meal.

Reginald, the Regal Robot

Reginald

Our scientists at the state-of-the-art laboratories in FutureLand worked hard to make Reginald the most adorable thing you can imagine. Not to mention, he wears a suit so you know he’s futuristic AND fancy!

Domenico, the Teenage Turtle

Domenico

Domenico is just your typical teen turtle. He enjoys pizza, skateboarding, and getting the highest scores at the Boardwalk’s Arcade.

Brody, the Courageous Cow

Brody

Do you enjoy completing missions in AdventureLand? Brody is the perfect match to your courageous attitude.

Sly, the Sneaky Ninja

Sly

Sly is the perfect Pet for the Jumpee prankster. Just be careful: you never know when he might sneak up on you!

Paige, the Bookworm Panda

Paige

Whenever Paige gets out of school, she always heads to StoryLand to read as many books as she can. All that knowledge definitely comes in handy while trying to complete Ivy’s quests.

Ginger, the Stale Cookie

Ginger

We found poor Ginger as we were moving our Winter Theme back into storage. She is a sweetheart and deserves a great friend like you!

Roughhouse, the Riled-Up Rottweiler

Roughhouse

Roughhouse has a TON of energy and will keep you company in JumpStart day and night. He never gets tired!

Theta, the Serious Scout

Theta

Theta does not joke around when it comes to a little competition. Bring her along to all your games at the Sport Arena to help you stay motivated.

Toadstool, the Giving Mushroom

Toadstool

Toadstool is the most loyal Pet DownTown. He will do everything to cheer you up when you are having a bad day.

Mech, the Metallic Dinosaur

Mech

Mech was created from a FutureLand experiment to bring back dinosaurs. Think of him as a Dino 2.0 with cool powers regular Dinosaurs do not even have!

Timber, the Powerful Tiki

Timber

Timber has more power over JumpStart than any of us can even comprehend. Thankfully, he channels all of that energy into being the best Jumpee pal he can be!

Lamby, the Black Lamb

Lamby

Lamby is the ultimate snuggle buddy. Cozy up to it after a long day playing your favorite games.

Murry, the Mischievous Monkey

Murry

Murry often teams up with Sly to pull off hilarious pranks around JumpStart. Purchase them together and you will have quite the jokesters in your Neighborhood.

Grayson, the Smoky Cat

Grayson

Grayson blends in well with the foggy streets of Windy Hollows, but he also keeps close tabs on the locations of all our Charms. He is the perfect assistant to all of JumpStart’s wizards.

These are only a few of brand new Petz to arrive DownTown! Make sure to keep earning Gold Coins so you can purchase one of these upbeat little pals before we run out of stock! Budurl.me/JSMarchPetz

The Saint Patrick’s Day Additions are here!

Now that February is coming to a close, we are putting away all the chocolates and hearts so we can start celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the beginning of spring! With the shamrocks sprouting and giant rainbows growing, a bit of springtime luck is in store for all the Jumpeez on MainStreet!

JS-March-Theme-b(1)

This HUGE pot of gold plopped right into the center of our MainStreet FunZone! It is so enormous that you will not even be able to reach the top of it by jumping! Head to the launchpad right next to it and begin your quest for the pot of gold. You will have to go on a short journey that involves kissing the Blarney Stone to get there, but once you land on top of that pot of gold you will earn a special power!

Pot of Gold

Since March is a month of luck and fortune, keep a special eye on all the St. Patrick’s Day items in the monthly Scavenger Hunt!

Once you checked out all the activities at the MainStreet and Boardwalk FunZones, head DownTown to help JumpStart turn green for the beginning of spring! Throw your water balloons at the clover garden to make our tiny plants grow large and strong!

Check out February’s Jumpee Lookbook

“Kisha here, broadcasting live from JumpStart’s Monthly Fashion Show. We are here today looking at some of the most cutting-edge fashions this side of DownTown. February is all about showing off your Valentine’s Day spirit and preparing for that breezy spring weather in the upcoming months. I searched everywhere from AdventureLand to the Enchanted Sanctuary to find some of my favorite dressed Jumpeez that really captured JumpStart’s February Look. There were a lot of great outfits, but these Jumpeez had some serious style. Let us take a closer look at some of their excellent Threadz:

The Girls:

On the right, we have Angelina TwinkleFairy. Angelina is rocking a cotton pink t-shirt, which is an excellent choice now that the weather has gotten warmer in JumpStart. She is already looking forward to the summer, as you can tell from her sandals.

On our left, Kate Breezehawk is showing her February flare. Her red sweatshirt and pink shoes let us know her excitement for the National Heart Month, and we always appreciate a Jumpee that keeps their wardrobe timely.

The Boys:

Gary SnarkyNoodle, on the left, is going for a classic look that we always enjoy. He coordinates his outfit so well that even his eyes match with his blue shirt and hat. Such attention to detail is what we really appreciate here at JumpStart.

Zach FlameComet (on the right) really shows his love for exploring AdventureLand with his look. Pairing camouflage with cargo pants helps Zach move swiftly throughout all his AdventureLand missions. Also notice his hair. Even though he keeps his outfit practical, he still shows his unique personality with his bright blue hair. A bold statement, but one we can get behind.

This concludes our coverage of JumpStart’s February Jumpee Lookbook. If you like their getups, make sure to head DownTown and pick up their stylish clothes at the Threadz store! Do you want to showcase YOUR Jumpee’s stylish outfits? Take a screenshot of your Jumpee wearing their best Threadz and post them on our blog!

National Heart Month: Adding Cardio Activities to Your Routine

Since February is National Heart Month, now is a great time to think about how to keep your heart healthy. Aerobic (otherwise known as cardio) exercises help our circulatory systems stay strong. Doing regular cardio exercises has proven to help strengthen the heart’s ability to pump blood through your body and reduce your blood pressure. We know that making a habit of doing cardio activities can be a struggle, so we came up with some easy activities to begin your cardio workout plan.

This stays a secret, but Pierre LOVES Valentine’s Day. We headed over to his house a couple days ago and found his kitchen cabinets fully stocked with candy hearts and chocolate!
