1.0 out of 5 stars JumpStart is Junk, May 7, 2009
This review is from: Jumpstart Advanced 1st Grade V2.0 (CD-ROM)
I homeschool our 6 year old son. I purchase a lot of educational material. This is junk.
There are 4 disks. The Music disk won't even work. I have installed it twice.

The Art Club is junk. Not clear how it works. Just click and paste onto backgrounds with no goal.

The Pet Playground doesn't work right either. Shows multiple game choices but only one game works but at best it doesn't award jewels consistantly. Often doesn't award them at all. Also pets aren't too clear. Cat barks???

Fundamentals is only educational thing in the box we bought. But clunky and sets bad example. Kids seem encouraged to nearly cheat to win race.

Overall bad choice. Bad software design. Not worth $19.99. If we had been able to try it first, would not load on his laptop, even if it was free. I think they may have sold my email address too. After registering the software, am getting 100s of spam mail

Reader Rabbit programs have been around for 20 years. They seem to be the better choice.

I'm a kid who used to play this game when I was younger. I don't really think it was cheating...the characters were just improving their scooters by adding gadgets. I don't really think it's cheating to just make your scooters better. Of course, we all have our own opinions, and you're welcome to yours.
