My daughter Lily has been having a blast playing with Jump Start 3D Virtual World. Let’s check-in with her and see what she thinks of Jump Start 3D Virtual World .
Me: Hey Sweetie! Whatcha’ doing?
Lily: Trying to take care of my pet.
Me: What pet?
Lily: A cat. I’ve named her Princess. She’s white with light pink hearts.
Me: She sounds perfect for you. What do you get to do with Princess?
Lily: I get to choose what to put on her, and make her smell good.
Me: Wait. How do you know she smells good?
Lily: There’s a grooming place and there’s a lot of soap bottles. But you have to buy them. And there’s a strawberry scented soap.
Me: OK. I get it. How do you earn money to buy the soap?
Lily: You have to play learning games. When you finish playing the games you earn blue gems. The more gems you get the more stuff you can buy.
Me: What kind of games do you play?
Lily: Games that help little kids. They help you with reading, math and thinking skills.
Me: Do you have a favorite game?
Lily: Yes! It’s a Donut Game. You have to sprinkle donuts that have the same ending sound. And there are donut patrols that can shoot sprinkles at you and you shoot sprinkles back at them. I really like it!
Lily is having a great time with Jump Start 3D Virtual World . When she uses this program I feel she’s using her brain by staying active and engaged. She has to think to make this program work, so I don’t feel that “Computer Game Guilt” when I let her play on the computer.
The site also has a Parents section. In the discussion forum you can ask questions about the games and the site. In the Jump Start Blog they offer ideas on art & science projects. They show that it isn’t all about the computer. They want you to think and create in the real world too! It’s great. I’m so glad we found Jump Start!
