Game of the Week: Cowabunga

GoTW-CowabungaIf there’s one thing you should know about the Petz at JumpStart, it is that they are always up to play some challenging learning games! Two of our sociable Pet cows, Freddy and Brody, told Frankie this week that they really wanted some friends to join them in Cowabunga. Cowabunga has been a long-time favorite game for our barnyard pals, and Frankie thought he would make sure to give these Petz their 15 seconds of fame this week. Make sure to pay respects to these cuddly little cows and play our Jumpee Mission at this DownTown Brain Training Arcade game! While you play along with these Petz, you will strengthen your skills in reading AND earn gold coins to spend at the DownTown shops! http://budurl.me/GoTW21
