See that cute little girl over there using MY laptop. =====>>>>>
Yeah, that is my very soon to be 4 year old who comes home from preschool and now instead of wanting to turn on the TV to watch "one of her shows" (oh... not DORA again...) she successfully takes over my laptop to play on Jump Start World.
And, I let her... why? Because it is fun and educational - and she loves it. When my son gets home from school around an hour later - guess what he wants?
Yeah.. Jump Start World. Let the fights begin! Mama wants her laptop back but the kids wanna play!
Seriously, if you have a child between 3-10 you should check out this site (at the risk of losing your computer to them). Both my 3 year old neurotypical daughter and my 8 year old son who has autism are hooked on Jump Start World. My daughter enjoys the Storyland games section and also the "adopt a pet" game. My son is off exploring waterfalls and all over Jump Start world collecting gems. Both kids like to play with the Jumpee creator which is similar to making miis on the Wii. There is even a contest going on right now where you can enter your Jumpee for a chance to win $10,000 dollars - now wouldn't that be super cool to win??
