Jumpee Fan Mail!

Hey JumpStart Fans!

A while ago, we received a hand-drawn picture from a little girl named Bella. A little after that, Bella’s friend Shannon sent us some of her fantastic drawings as well! Lucky for us, the fan mail keeps on coming! This time, we received a letter from JW and another from five kids who clearly are all number one fans!

Our development team took a look at the pictures and said that these kids have some great suggestions for the game . JW sets the bar higher for our art team with his ideas while the group of five suggests ideas that are out of this world!

Jumpeez can jump even higher with JW

Dragon Fun Coming to JumpStart!

UPDATE: The Enchanted Sanctuary, where kids can hatch and raise dragons, is now live at JumpStart.com.

Last week, we announced that Jumpeez would soon be able to hatch, raise and train pet dragons in a brand new area of JumpStart.com. Now, we’re back with more sketches from the JumpStart artists. Check out the art below to see how they designed dragons that are packed with personality!

It all started with some sketches…

Expressive eyes are key...

add in some facial features...

and, of course, the rest of the body...

plus a splash of color to really show off those personalities!

See what the dragons look like in 3D!

Baby Dragons Coming to JumpStart!

UPDATE: The Enchanted Sanctuary, where kids can hatch and raise their own dragons, is now live at JumpStart.com.

A few months ago, we showed you this sketch of an adorable baby dragon. Now, we are thrilled to announce that he will soon be coming to life at JumpStart.com!

The JumpStart Team is hard at work designing a whole new area at JumpStart where Jumpeez will be able to hatch and raise pet dragons! How exciting is that? This dragon sanctuary is still very early in the design process, but rumor has it that there will be a hatchery and area for Jumpeez to play with and care for their scaly pals.

We’ll be sure to bring you details about the dragon sanctuary in the upcoming weeks….so stay tuned!
