Jumpstart Escape from Adventure Island Wii Giveaway

I'm very excited to share with you again JumpStart a wonderful company that is geared to helping kids learn with fun games that make them want to play along. A while back Cole had the chance to try out the computer and internet game, that has become a HUGE hit in our house. Cole will come home asking to play his homework!

Did you know that Christmas is coming very soon? Yup I totally didn't think about it to until I see all these ads for toys and other things I can't live with out. Now I have a rule when buying toys for the kids 80% has to be educational. Now I know some people don't like video games for their kids but I know also that having things kids enjoy and help their mind and imagination grow. My dad use to put my spelling words on a computer game, and believe me it was fun and I remember it to this day how much I loved it!

The newest game is JumpStart Escape From Adventure Island (Wii) for ages 5 - 9. The goal of the game is to collect sand dollars to buy a helium tank to get you off the island you crashed on. The game starts just like the computer game does by picking the character, how they dress etc (Cole's favorite part). You go to different parts of the island and under sea to gain sand dollars. Now Cole was to Wii you had a harder time with the remote in both hands to control his man. The games were challenging and required help from a parent. My girlfriend was super nice and allowed us to invaded her house and her Wii. She was super helpful with Cole going threw all the different stages of the game. Now Cole is learning his letters and numbers and is doing very well, but parts of the game require you to read a name to win the sand dollar. He did really well for a 5 year old, I'm thinking some kids maybe better at 6 at this game along with knowing how to use a Wii and it's controllers.

Overall I Love JumpStart and the way they help kids learn, I think we'll stick to the computer game for a few more months and then switch over to the Wii. That is if I find a good deal on one for Christmas present ;).

If you're looking for a great gift that will be a big hit with kids, this would be a great gift. Currently you can pick up your own copy at Amazon for $29.99. Not a bad deal for a hours of fun and learning!
