My kids, Maddie and Noah love playing all kinds of video games. One of their favorite things to do online is play their Jumpeez on Jumpstart.com. They LOVE exploring all the areas it has and playing all sorts of educational games.
Jumpstart.com has incorporated a new part to it’s map. Right in the middle of Main Street they have added a zoo with all our favorite characters from Dream Works’ Madagascar movies. My kids were so excited to go try out the new area. Now you can stop by to say hi and play with Gloria, Melman, Marty, Alex and the penguins.
Located between StoryLand and Windy Hollows, is Madagascar Preschool Surf and Slide, an interactive game featuring baby versions of the Madagascar characters. It allows you to choose your character and which surf board to use. My son (5) was helping me play this game and I found out he knew words I didn’t realize he knew. The game is very educational and easy for the younger kids to control.
Another area that has just opened up for the season is the Winter Wonderland located in “Downtown”. My kids love this area! Last night one of my kids logged onto Jumpstart.com and came running out to the front room to tell his sister that it was snowing on Jumpstart again. In Winter Wonderland they can be turned into an elf, catch a ride on a train, sled down fun twisty slides, ice skate, and more. My kids love the ice skating and the sledding!
