Jumpstart 3D Virtual World has been a game that we have played with for weeks here at my house.
Everyone from my 15 month old, up to my teen has made an avatar, and ran him/her through the towns and games that this world has to offer.
When you first log into Jumpstart.com you will have a parent screen. Simple, I promise, it will ask for the age and name of the child playing so the website can configure the program to work with your child and his/her age appropriate sections.
Jumpstart.com allows your child to configure the appearance of their avatar from there. Want kitty ears and pink hair? You got it! (Parents, worry not… this can be changed often! In fact, I think it is the favorite part of the game!)
Then you get a short tutorial about how to move around, pick up items and look in your backpack of goodies. Be prepared to hear the Dora “backpack” song a lot during this… At least they are learning to associate, right?
There are so many areas you can visit when you get into the main part of the game. Ghost towns where you can run around and pick up gold and silver bars for money, or Adventure Land where you can play games and others where you can decorate your home and change it at your whim.
Jumpstart 3D Virtual World was made for children to build their own world and be safe in their learning. Parents do not need to worry about their kids playing games and maneuvering around on the internet. This can be done safely and with benefits of learning and using the computer.
Now… want to use this website yourself?
