It's no secret I'm a huge Jumpstart fan. Read my review of the computer games:

Of course when Jumpstart approached me and asked me to review their new iPhone/iPad app I jumped at the chance. Jumpstart did provide me with a code to download the app at no cost. All opinions expressed are my own.

You can download the app from iTunes. It costs $7.99 and is worth every penny if your child is in the young gradeschool age range.

FEATURES:
• Over 50 activities that teach your child 75 essential learning skills — including vocabulary, number recognition and more!
• More than 10 pets to play with, care for and feed!
• Over 10 storybooks featuring the JumpStart pals!
• Endless amounts of digital coloring pages, lively music videos and customizable game features provide your child hours of fun!
• 5 distinctive lands in this magical 3D world to explore!
• Limitless options to customize your character and house!
•Developed from child education experts: Learning curriculum developed and reviewed by early childhood and preschool education experts!

When you start out, you get to design your character. Here's me!

Once in the app, the directions are easy to follow. They are all spoken so a child who can't read yet can easily play. I was led from place to place during my tour of the land by following alphabet letters.

In order to get items in the game such as decorations and CDs you have to play learning games. There were so many to choose from. I was actually quite surprised at the sheer number and variety.

By completing tasks you earn pieces of books. Once you have all of the pieces, you can read the story.

One of my favorite parts was decorating my house and the land.

Little Brother's favorite part was of course, the pets. He had a cat AND a dog now. He also loves the Art Studio where you can draw pictures of anything you want or use their drawings as a base.

Little Brother is 5 and is in pre-k, at least for another 5 weeks, but that's another post entirely. This game was perfect for him. I am always looking for something for him to do at Big Brother's after school activities that isn't Minecraft. Again. Jumpstart Pet Rescue is fun and educational.

Big Brother is in 2nd grade. He played for a few minutes, but it was really too easy for him. He is in accelerated math and reading. He still plays the computer game so if you have an older kid that needs a bit of a challenge, I still recommend the computer game as well! We have had years of fun with it!
