Last summer my daughter got the opportunity to try out Jumpstart's online 3D Virtual World. Well, she loved it so much that she still plays it several times a week. I love that she is learning so much while enjoying the game. On November 17th Jumpstart is releasing a new Wii game, Escape From Adventure Island. I knew Abby would love to check out this new game so was excited when Jumpstart sent me the new game to review.
The first thing I noticed was the graphics. It's similar to the online world and so very familiar to Abby. The Jumpstart world is very colorful. It was also easy for her to jump right in and begin playing. She tells me her favorite part was making her character and playing the underwater games. She's also quite proud of what she calls her house in the game. The game is very kid-friendly. It's easy to navigate for young children, which I love because she's not constantly asking for help. The game incorporates some of the same games she's played on-line as well as some new games. All of the games help her with the same skills she's learning in kindergarten, such as reading and math.
