Summary: Frustrating Controls. Minimal Education Value. Slow Loading; does not keep childs attention. I should have heeded the majority Amazon reviews. Some ~parent choice~ site said this was a great educational game for kids... they must have been getting paid by the developer.
Summary: Got this for my 5 and 4 year olds, they are very good about playing games without adult assistance, but this one they can't leave me alone. Pros: 1. kids like the way the game looks. Cons: 1. kids can't actually play it themselves.
Summary: I got this for my 3.5 year old. She was so excited to play but the load times seemed to be very long. Considering every move you make causes a new load screen this can get old quick. While moving around the game I didn't find many "games" for my daughter.
Summary: This is very disappointing. This cannot be viewed in South Africa as it is not compatable with the Wii consoles sold in this country. I have already sent one back and got a replacement which is still not compatable.
Summary: I originally bought this game for my 4 year old who is almost 5. She is at an average learning level and tolerance for her age. This game did not compel her to want to keep playing at all. She could not figure out how to do things or navigate very easily.
Cute game but most 3 yr olds can't manuever a Wii remote

Summary: I give JumpStart 2 thumbs up for trying but the reality is most 3 or 4 yr olds can't manuever the Wii remote in these type games. My 3 almost 4 year old can beat just about anyone at Wii sports bowling and boxing but she can not manuever the remote in these childrens games (too much mandatory moving...
Summary: I had had great success with the PC-based Jumpstart games, so we bought this for my two littler children who are loving their new Wii. Unfortunately, as many other reviewers have related, this game is poorly programmed and executed.
Summary: I have several Jump Start games for PC. I was hoping the Wii version would have better graphics, better interaction, and overall capture my 5 year olds attention. Nope, they just took the PC game graphics and all and ported it to the Wii.
