Recent child development research indicates children are most receptive to learning languages at a young age. JumpStart Spanish gives kids the benefit of exposure to a second language while they are still learning their native tongue. Simple, age-appropriate activities introduce Spanish basics, including words, phrases, numbers, and songs.
In JumpStart Spanish, children, ages 3-6, join Mr. Hopsalot from JumpStart Kindergarten on a special visit to his clubhouse, high atop a large oak tree. When kids arrive in the tree house, they realize Mr. Hopsalot's affinity for the Spanish language and its cultures. As they explore the many items Mr. Hopsalot has in his hangout, children are exposed to Spanish and English translations of common words and phrases and learn about Spanish culture in a fun and educational way. The product also includes a toggle that allows Spanish-speaking families to use JumpStart Spanish to introduce their child to the English language.See all Product description

The interface is the inside of a treehouse, where users can click on different items to go to games/activities that help them learn the names of items in Spanish. There is an option to keep all dialog in English, or in Spanish.
The interface is intuitive, and we let our son navigate on his own for the first 30 minutes or so. Then, we let him give us a tour of what he has discovered. For some reason, he gravitates towards the activites that have catchy tunes involved. For example, he can now count from 1 to 10 in Spanish, but he will sing them, just like the song on the application. He does the same for the days of the week, too.
His two most favorite games involve learning the colors and learning the names of clothing and apparel items. The varying levels of difficulty work together to limit frustration, yet the activities are kept challenging.
We believe this is a fine application, because our son has definitely learned things, yet he thinks it is all fun and games. 4 months after purchase, he still enjoys the game, and even his mother and I have found ourselves humming all the catchy tunes.
