It has problems

Neal W Hadaway, Amazon

  • Summary: I expected it to be the best thing for learning games this year, but it's not functioning properly- gets stuck on at least the ABC recognition so far and gives the wrong options only as options- strange. We're thinking about returning it if we can't get it to work.

Disappointed

Gladys Dessau, Amazon

  • Summary: My six year old plays many Wii games so I thought it would be great to get her something more educational. Wrong, this was awful. I would have expected something better from Jump Start. It was very hard to manuver and understand for a six year old. I wish I did not waste my money.

A waste of your $

  • Summary: The idea is okay, but the whole game is just low quality, slow and hard to control for kids - even for mine (4 and 5) who have pretty good coordination. (They do great with Wii Fit Plus games) I would NOT recommend this game for others.

Disappointing but fun

Zamner, Amazon

  • Summary: After playing jumpstart for a year with my daughter I was very disappointed in this WII version. It is much less educational than the computer version and it is more difficult to manuever. I would not recommend this game as people might think that the computer game was similar.
