Editorial Review

If high-flying superheroes, glitzy game shows, and dangerousinterplanetary missions are what it takes to hold the attention of third throughsixth graders studying math and science, then this four-CD compilation ofeducational software does no wrong. And, fortunately, all fourprograms--originally released separately by the quality-conscious folks at Edmark--manageto do a respectable job of actually teaching kids, too.Read more

Features

  • Includes 4 fun and educational titles
  • More than 15 individual lessons and 200 activities
  • Each program uniquely designed to teach basic skill sets
  • Each title highly rated by accredited reviewers and experts in the field

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid This Product
I have purchased 30-40 software CD's for my 6 year old over the years and this CD has got to rate near the bottom of the bunch.In summary, there is very little explanation or instruction into the math or science concepts being "taught", the "game" aspect to theCDs is clunky at best, and it is just plain confusing.I have been sorely disappointed in these CDs and my daughter has very little, if any, interest in using these CDs although she loves to be on the computer.At the same time I boughtthese CDs, I also bought her a Magic School Bus title which was very good and which she asks to play.I have never written a review before this review but felt compelled to do it to alert other parents to avoid this title. Waste of your money, and of your child's patience and interest.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceeds Expectations
My son is 6 yrs old so I was leery of purchasing this title.However, it is better to challenge than to bore, so I made the purchase.I will never regret it.The software is fabulous.It installed easily, initializes and performs well, is incredibly engaging and remarkably educational for such a fun suite of software.5-0 out of 5 stars Great selection of titles, educational and well worth the $$
This is a great set of CD's.Informative, fun, challenging and well worth the money.A deal like this is hard to find, and belive me I've been looking! My 10 yr old son very much enjoys this product as well as the Middle School Accelerator. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Much Too Complex for 3 year olds
Although my daughter asks to play with this a lot (cute characters) she gets frustrated immediately with the navigation.Perhaps I'll hold on to it until she is 4+, but the material is too mature for her at 3 & 1/2.

5-0 out of 5 stars terrific introduction to time and geography for little ones
This is our first Edmark product, but it won't be our last.This is a fine program with easy controls, a user-friendly interface, and fun educational activities.Kids can work on five tasks in one of two modes. For example, in Jellybean Hunt, your perspective is as an ant on a grid-patterned tablecloth.Jellybeans are scattered at various locations.In exploration mode, you can use arrows designated as relative directions (forward, left or right) or absolute directions (labelled N, S, E and W), to find jelly beans; in task mode, you are asked to get a particular jellybeanusing a specific arrow set.5-0 out of 5 stars Trudy's Time and PLace
Once again Edmark keeps our kids happy with another outstanding product. I've seen kids from 3+ to 7 play this. Several different activities with both Q/A mode or explore mode keeps kids with varied levels of skills busy, entertained and learning. The games "grow" with the kids. Both educational and loads of fun, it's a must for all homes.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars educational and really holds their attention for hours
My daughters- five and six year old have really loved this CD. They play it everyday and have not yet got bored. I am very happy because they have picked up quite a lot of things about habitats and biomes. The catchy songs and the games that allow them into the world of animals in different biomes are very educational. They have not just educated the kids but their Mom (me) too!! The game has 3 levels- easy to hard and i dont think my girls are going to get bored of this one soon.I only wish the software also included deserts and the Asian continent to which we belong (we live in India). However, given that i have not found anything as good and fun for the kids, i would highly recommend this product to all moms ( Asian ones too!)

4-0 out of 5 stars one of the best Jumpstart games
Jumpstart Animal Adventures is a fun, educational game. My 4 year old son loves the current music and funny music videos of the animals. The crab music video "Regeneration" (about defending your territory and occasionally losing a limb that grows back) makes me and my son giggle every time (think: a "clean" Green Day song).
3-0 out of 5 stars Nice graphics, BAD music
The graphics are top notch, but the music is terrible.It feels like you're watching MTV or VH1, hip-hop, rap, rock.Do you really want to TRAIN your kids to be mindless, 24-hour-a-day MTV junkies AT THIS EARLY AGE?They will learn to like this type of music from their friends later, when they are ready.Why force it upon them now?Jumpstart could have provided more age appropriate music that is just as engaging, but they didn't.Just like many parents, they want to force kids to grow up too quickly. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Unintelligible voice commands detract from this game
We bought this game because we already had and liked Jay Jay Earns His Wings. This game has an identical interface. There are several activities that must be accomplished in order to do one final activity. Before starting each new activity for the first time, an "animated" sequence is shown with the original character voices (their mouths move and that's about it). After completing all activities, the reward is getting to play and compose music on the "Sparkleberry tree." There are three skill levels to choose from.
2-0 out of 5 stars Typical cookie-cutter children's game
Like just about every other children's game (think JumpStart) this game is made in Macromedia's Director. And also, like just about every other children's game, it is low-budget, low-talent and low-resolution. The game forces itself into 800x600x16-bit @ 60Hz and after you exit the game, guess what? You're still in 800x600x16-bit @ 60Hz. Because the programming talent is nonexistent the game is rigidly linear, forcing you to watch the mind-numbing instructions before EVERY game no matter how many times you've played it previously. And, in what seems to be a trend among children's games, it requires Administrator privileges to not only install, but also RUN the game! I am not about to give my 28-month-old son those elevated permissions on the family computer. Not because I'm afraid of intentional mischief but because I'm afraid of the accidental damage he could do. The only things that save this title are the videos and cutscenes which feature plenty of time with the main characters and keep my son interested.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just like the TV show, Jay Jay is still a hero!
A fun program that my nephew has enjoyed for weeks. The activities keep him coming back over and over and the theme of helping each other and conservation are messages that it is never too early to expose children to. Like the Jay Jay Earns his Wings program, this one is a winner. Where can you get the Sky Circus program I see listed as discontinued? ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Jay Jay EARNS His Wings
    What a wonderful word for a child to learn: EARN. With concerns about my nephew being given almost anything he reaches for I bought this for his birthday. At four he is starting to develop a concept about work equating reward. His favorite cartoon show Jay Jay has helped with this wonderful computer program where Jay Jay has several errands to run to EARN his new job. The math skills taught were presented in a way that my nephew was totally unaware that he was learning! I'm looking to buy more Jay Jay programs. this one has done the job and more.

    5-0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS!!
    Jay Jay is one of my almost-3-year-old son's favorite TV characters. My son is fascinated with basic math right now. When I found that it taught simple math addition and measurement, etc., I decided to pick it up right away. After we ran it on my son's computer, we were pleasantly surprised by the vivid animation and the quality of the games it offerred. Usually the drawings of the characters in a computer do not look as good as what you would see on TV, but this one is just as good. It even plays the theme song in the beginning. BUY THIS ONE!! Your kids will learn a lot from it, even though he may think he is just playing an interesting computer game. ... Read more

      Perhaps my sights are too high for cd-roms, but I would hope that they might teach kids to think more than merely entertain them with well-presented facts.Indeed, my daughter is becoming quite a reader of kids' science literature, which I think is definitely far better than this kind of software.While there are puzzles, this is largely a passive experience of clicking - with little cost if you guess wrong - and mini-movies and things to print.It passes the time, but teaches very little.Can't the producers introduce some notions, such as evolution, ecology, etc?3-0 out of 5 stars amazing animals

Three of my children (ages 7, 5 and 3) spends hours exploring with MSB Oceans, Animals, Solar System, and Dinosaurs. They are great. On the other hand, he is quickly bored with the Activity Centers, such as Whales and Dolphins, Flight, and Mars. They simply present one screen with things to click on.2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Value for Money
