The kids new favorite game and a giveaway!

I was contacted by JumpStart a few weeks ago to test out their program for kids and I graciously accepted. I wasn't sure what to expect. I consider myself a kid game conasuir. We own the Playstion 3, Wii, Leapfrog Leapster x2 and the DS. I know what is appropriate for kids, what is easy for kids, what is actually educational for kids and what if fun for any age between 4-10.

Also because of this overload of gaming systems in our house the kids are critical of games and get bored very easily, so we were really a great family to review this. We logged in together and since the minute they got to custom design their character they were HOOKED. They love it and I love it. The kids love the fact that it is a free range game that allows them to go and do whatever they want. If they want to follow a laid out adventure they can and receive certain special prizes. They are responsible for how far they go and can advance by earning coins by playing many games in adventure land and spend their earned credit to make changes to the character or homes. The game offers many educational games put in a fun field for kids so that they are actually having fun but learning and sharpening their reading, math or logic skills while they do it.  I love how I can sit in the other room and hear "awesome", "that's sweet" "mom come look at my score". So bravo to JumpStart and their product.
