A Message from the Penguins of Madagascar

Hey Jumpeez, Skipper here. I got Frankie to let me make a special announcement here on the JumpStart blog…

peng_cg_penguins_14Penguins of Madagascar are embarking on their biggest mission yet, The Penguins of Madagascar World! That is right, we are too big to handle and need new missions, new adventures and a new world for it all! Our new digs are launching November 25th! But we will be launching some sneak peeks soon!

The Penguins and I help the JumpStart team out with the submissions you all send in through J-Tube. We kept seeing requests for something called SpeedDrome and Boardwalk, and we got to thinking… what if we could convince the head honchos at JumpStart to give us our OWN WORLD, making room in the JumpStart world for these features to return.

Join Kowolski, Rico, Private and me on new adventures in Penguins of Madagascar World! Don’t get too excited, Jumpeez- it’s not here just yet. The boys and I couldn’t keep it under wraps any longer. We’ll keep you updated with the latest top secret information– keep an eye out!

Gotta go- the world’s top secret missions won’t solve themselves.

Signing off,
Skipper.

School of Dragons FunZone: Have You Met Hiccup?

Since earlier this month, JumpStart has been enjoying an exclusive look into the unreleased School of Dragons virtual world game with the addition of the new FunZones in DownTown and Central Park. Jumpeez from all over the JumpStart World have been flocking to this exciting and all new gaming area, where Hiccup and Toothless have been ready to greet them as they take on round of Fire Ball Frenzy or make their way through the menacing Viking themed maze.

How well do you know Hiccup? For any “How to Train Your Dragon” fan, Hiccup is a living legend that brought about peace between Vikings and Dragons after years of turmoil. To get to know this Viking hero a bit more, here are a few important things to know!

Growing up in the Viking village of Berk, Hiccup lacked the physical strength to mirror a traditional Viking leader like his father, chief of Berk, Stoick the Vast. Because of this, Hiccup has spent much of his life helping Gobber the Belch in the armory. Tinkering with new inventions, Hiccup always exhibited a unique sense of inventiveness and creativity, which would ultimately link him to his dragon companion, Toothless.
