Kisha’s Picks: 4 Back-to-School Styles in our August Jumpee Lookbook!

“Hi Jumpeez, it’s Kisha! I’m JumpStart’s go-to fashion consultant, which means I have the scoop on ALL of the latest styles to hit DownTown. As you might know, I keep my ear to the ground on the latest trends traveling across JumpStart each month by spotting some of the excellent outfits put together by you Jumpeez. Since September is fast approaching, and I know a lot of you have already kicked off the school year, I thought I might search for some outfits that were perfect for the classroom. Take a look at my favorite 4 outfits I enjoyed the most below!

The Girls:

Sydney is gearing up for the school year by showing some extra girl power. Her “girls rule” t-shirt tells us she is confident and prepared for whatever scholarly challenges face her. Not to mention, she also knows how to tie a look together. Sydney’s pants perfectly match her cat ears, and those magenta shoes help make her outfit pop just a little bit more.

Nicole SpeedyGecko
The school year may have started, but it is still August and the sun is still shining. I appreciate Nicole’s determination to bring her summertime spirit to the classroom. Those bright Threadz are ready for an impromptu beach trip, and helps make sure she stands out among the rest of her peers.

The Boys:

August-LookBook-BoysOn the left: Matt BoomTail

With this warm weather still heating up the grounds of JumpStart, Matt wears his firefighters outfit to make sure we keep cool. Themed get-ups always capture my attention, so Matt’s dedication to this look was much appreciated!

On the right:
Andrew TwinkleRhino

You know what is essential to any functioning classroom? A class clown! Andrew fits that role perfectly. With his jester shirt and cool shades, you know Andrew is determined to get the last laugh in all of your classroom shenanigans. To honor the most delightful asset to any great school year, I just had to award Andrew with my final Jumpee Lookbook award of the month!

With so many different Threadz coming in every month, you can create all sorts of wonderful outfits to compliment your personality. I always have such a hard time picking out winners, because all of you have tons of style! After seeing the looks you pulled off this month, I am already eager to see what you have in store in our next edition! Do not forget to send in a screenshot of your best outfit by commenting below!”

Cross-Eyed, the Dizzy Fly
Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 12.28.11 PM 2It might seem silly to purchase a fly as a Pet, and you are absolutely right! Cross-eyed is a pretty silly guy. However, his humorous nature is bound to keep you feeling upbeat and happy all day long.

These five Petz are just a few highlights of 18 wonderful new additions to DownTown! You are also going to want to stop by and give a warm welcome to: Calamaria, the Sweetheart Squid; Spot, the Dotted Turtle; Primus, the Gentleman Unicorn; Eukiah, the Bubbly Blob; Grayson, the Smoky Cat; Buck, the Fearless Bull; Mech, the Metallic Dinosaur; Roughhouse, the Riled-Up Rotweiler; Pink, the Playful Primate; Bullfrog, the Servant Mushroom; Katana, the Agile Ninja; Buttons, the Raggedy Rag Doll; and Clamps, the Adoring Robot!

Save a Voltage Dragon and Join our S.P.L.A.T. Missions!

Jumpeez, beware! The evil sorcerer Tangorra has RETURNED to JumpStart and he is up to his sinister antics yet again. This guy has one mission and one mission only: to drain ALL of the energy out of JumpStart! We know. This is downright cruel and cold. In order for him to fulfill his wicked mission, Tangorra must brew one elaborate potion. However, to pull this spell off he will need the eggs of the Voltage Dragon.
1You might be asking, “What is the Voltage Dragon? I have never seen this creature in the Enchanted Sanctuary!” That is because the Voltage Dragon is an extremely rare type of Mythie that few Jumpeez have had the privilege of seeing. These Mythies tend to stick together and hide deep inside JumpStart’s energy centers. They are a quiet Mythie, but they are important creatures to us citizens of JumpStart!
3If we do not act, JumpStart could be in some serious trouble because of this mischievous magician. The energy of our Voltage Dragons helps us run all of our FunZones and lands. Thankfully, Jumpeez all across JumpStart have joined together and formed S.P.L.A.T. to stop Tangorra. S.P.L.A.T. is an organization that is short for the Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers that keeps our favorite places fun and friendly. However, its leaders choose to remain anonymous so you might never come across with another S.P.L.A.T. agent in your travels through JumpStart. Instead, you will be greeted by their representative, S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R. (Secret Protection League Against Troublemakers Transmit Email Robotically). S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R. will give you important tips to finding the path to the mysterious Voltage Dragon, before Tangorra gets to them first!
2If you are one of the lucky few to receive a message from S.P.L.A.T.T.E.R., please: follow its clues and help save JumpStart! Are YOU ready to embark on this mission?

New FunZones Have Rolled into JumpStart

Our picnic in MainStreet has just wrapped up and now it is time to get active! We have three exciting FunZones for you to explore this month on MainStreet, DownTown, and the Boardwalk that will help give you a second wind of energy before you head back to school. Do you think you can handle the excitement?
1Strap on your roller blades and go for a cruise through Skate-o-Rama. Our massive skate park on MainStreet features loops and ramps so you can move swiftly across town. Make sure to also head down to the secret dance area below the rink. That way, you can show off some of your most groovin’ roller moves to your Jumpee pals.
2Our MainStreet FunZone is just the opening act! When you check out our DownTown FunZone, we guarantee you will be impressed by the adventure we have in store for you. Use the launchpad to reach our special zipline, and hold on tight! You will get to see this area of JumpStart like you have never seen it before.
4While flying through DownTown on your zipline, why not also get started on our monthly Scavenger Hunt? Keep a sharp eye out for some worldly items including a globe and miniature Eiffel Towers!
3After you have explored these two features, work on getting your highest score in the Boardwalk Arcade’s featured game of the month: Punk Punk Drop! Those pesky Shadow Punks are constantly getting in the way of our AdventureLand and MarineLand adventures, and now is the best time to put them in their place!

We might have reported all of the new FunZones to head into JumpStart for the month, but we still have one HUGE mission for you to explore. However, you are going to have to wait until tomorrow to find out what it is! In the meantime, start exploring these exciting new features and chat with your pals in the comments below about your favorite FunZone for the month!

Let’s check out just some of the wonderful features to explore this month!
1Frankie and his pals were so excited to celebrate the Fourth of July that they made sure to prepare a glorious picnic right in the center of MainStreet! With this GIANT picnic, it is hard to tell whether this food is huge or you just got smaller. Either way, we certainly seem to have enough treats to go around for all of us Jumpeez!
2If you are starting to get a bit exhausted from hopping all over this picnic potluck, relax by the cool waters of the butterfly-shaped pool at the Boardwalk. The water is just the right temperature help you refresh after a warm JumpStart summer day.
However, maybe you still have a lot of energy to burn off after exploring the MainStreet FunZone. That would not be surprising considering how much sugar is in those large cupcakes! Not to worry, we have just the activity for you to burn off some more steam. A tall waterslide has just popped up DownTown too! Thankfully, you do not need to worry about climbing up the steep latter to reach the top. Save yourself an extra workout by using the launchpad beside the pool!
3Lastly, we have a special Scavenger Hunt for the month so that you can collect items and be prepared for your Fourth of July festivities! These fireworks might give themselves away… Just look at them sparkle!
