JumpStart Languages 2! (Concept)

I feel that the original JumpStart Languages was too short, so I have this idea of adding more characters.

Eleanor- Hindi

Casey- Chinese (Mandarin)

what do you think?

Neat compilation of the 2 VHS videos

While I was combing through YouTube for any videos concerning the JumpStart series, I discovered that less than a day ago (as of the time I'm writing this), someone made a compilation of sorts of the two VHS videos. I guess it doesn't sound that impressive on paper, but at least with the intro bit (which is the promotion for the videos and games based on them), the uploader edited the part about the games to make both Frankie and Hopsalot talk about them together (instead of on their own like the originals), so that's neat.

I love that even now, in early 2021, a few people are still showing interest in this franchise, enough to do stuff like this.

Rejected JumpStart Advanced series comic concept - some insight

I mentioned in a blog post from about...a year ago by now (has that much time really passed?) that there exists some concept art for a JumpStart comic that would've tied into the JumpStart Advanced series. A small thumbnail for the concept art still exists on the website of the artist who drew it, so I'll just link it here: https://www.johntoons.com/images/inset-comic-220.png

The artist in question is John Nunnemacher, who worked as an animator on several early 2000s JumpStart games, such as JumpStart Advanced Preschool: Fundamentals, JumpStart Spy Masters: Unmask the Prankster, and JumpStart Baby (2000). A few months ago, I sent him an email asking if he remembered anything about the comic, and was excited to receive a reply from him. I fe…

Concerning Roxy's Language

Because not only does Roxy speak English, but so does every series-wide character featured, including her associate, Frankie, and because of her culture being American, personally, on one side of me, I figured she should have been created for American Sign Language... on the other side of me is a problem: Roxy has only four fingers on each hand, including a thumb, so at this rate, nobody could have told when she was signing an M from an N, or a V from a W.

WHY?! Because, concerning signing both M and N, those involve a fist with a thumb between two outermost fingers. For an M, it would be that the thumb is between the pinky and the ring, As for an N, it would be that the thumb is between the ring and the middle. T, on the other hand, no pro…

A Concern about 'Languages' Casting

If it is really true that Chris Anthony was the voice of both Hopsalot and Pierre, then Kat Cressida had to have been the speaking voice of Roxy, with Grey DeLisle doing the singing of the songs in that Pavilion. Cressida couldn't have been credited for nothing.

List of obscure(ish?) JumpStart stuff owned

Recently I realized it might be good if I compiled a list of JumpStart products I own, in case anyone has questions or wants me to photograph/scan something. These are just the ones that I think are more rare(?) for now, since I think listing the games that most people are familiar with would make the list overly long and more people already own those games anyways. If I think of anything else that can go here, I'll add it later.

Games:

  • JumpStart 3 Ring Circus
  • JumpStart Baby (1998) (French release)
  • JumpStart Preschool (1998) (French release)
  • JumpStart Kindergarten (1997) (French release)
  • JumpStart Math for Kindergartners (Japanese release)

Thoughts on "Jo Hammet, Kid Detective, Solves the Great Jewel Robbery"

After reading the short story "Jo Hammet, Kid Detective, Solves the Great Jewel Robbery", I have a lot of thoughts on it. I guess this could be considered a review of sorts, but it's probably going to be much more disorganized than a review should be. Here's my thoughts:

First, I really appreciate that the story exists at all. It might seem like a silly thing to mention, but JumpStart 5th Grade is a pretty self-contained game. Aside from the main character Jo Hammet appearing in some later JumpStart games, like the SpyMasters series and Adventure Challenge, most of the locations and characters from JumpStart 5th Grade didn't carry over to any other media. It was really nice to see something that actually tried to draw inspiration from that …

1998 Family Software Catalog

This is just something I bought on Ebay at least a few months ago. As the title would imply, it's a software catalog from 1998. Some parts of the catalog cover JumpStart games, but it also features other series like Math Blaster and Fisher-Price games. Recently I got around to scanning some of the pages (particularly for some of the artwork).

Here's the cover:


And here's a two-page spread for the JumpStart series:


I cropped some of the artwork that appears here and uploaded it to a few character galleries. Two of the illustrations in the spread are of CJ and Edison, and they might be unique to this catalog. They're both based off of JumpStart 2nd Grade specifically, but I don't remember seeing these illustrations in any JumpStart 2nd Grade pr…

JumpStart fanart

Below is a link to my personal Wix site where I put my own JumpStart artwork. It mostly just has character doodles. For a while I wasn't updating it all, but just recently I put some new pictures here. Please note that I don't want this artwork shared/redistributed without my knowledge/permission. I'd prefer if my artwork just stayed on this site.

Sometimes I'd like to connect more with other JumpStart fans, but I don't really use any social media sites, so this is pretty much the only website where I interact with other JumpStart fans.

- JumpStart 3D Virtual World: The Quest For The Color Meister

- Jumpstart Adventures 3rd grade: Mystery Mountain


not sure if World of Jumpstart and the how to train your dragon online game count too, but I mainly grew up on World of Jumpstart and only after begging my parents for months I was able to get Quest for the Color Meister. I think I got the 3rd grade game because I thought I was growing out of the 2nd grade one.

Greetings Everyone!

Greetings, my name is Tiffany, I'm 22 years old, and I've been a fan of the JumpStart franchise ever since I was four years old. My first JumpStart game is "JumpStart Preschool" 1995 edition.

  • "JumpStart Preschool" (1995 edition)
  • "JumpStart Toddlers" (1996 edition)
  • "JumpStart Kindergarten" (1994 edition)
  • "JumpStart 1st Grade" (1995 edition)

Release dates project

I was sort of debating whether or not to make a blog post about this, I guess it can't hurt to. I just wanted to put it out there that now on, I'll really be trying to obtain reliable sources for release dates of JumpStart games (and other products if applicable.)

In the past, I've often neglected to obtain sources on release dates, and in some cases this has resulted in me adding the wrong release dates to game articles. For example, I thought the "Updated series" version of JumpStart Preschool had been released in 1999 for the longest time, all because of some case art I found that said "All New '99 Version" on it. It wasn't until just recently I found a Knowledge Adventure press release that revealed that the game had actually initially …

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

A while back, I remember stumbling across the website of someone who had worked on a few of the JumpStart games released around the year 2000, like some of the Advanced series games, and JumpStart Baby (2000). I believe it was his own personal website, and he had some concept art/storyboard stuff related to the JumpStart series on there too, one of which I think was some concept art for a comic based on the Advanced series that was never fully produced. I don't know if the website I'm thinking is defunct by this point, but if it is, it's possible someone might've archived it over at the Internet Archive.

The thing is, I can't seem to remember this guy's name at all, or the name of the website, so I really have no good way of searching for i…

Proposed change to the List of Games article

Since the List of JumpStart Games page is consistently the most popular page on the wiki, I've been considering ways it could potentially be improved.

Right now, the list of games is one of the few articles on the wiki with no images. I think having a small, thumbnail image for each game - such as the most recent boxart, or logo/promotional art for games without boxart, would make the page more visually appealing.

I was also considering the different ways the games can be categorized - right now, the list is mostly categorized by series, but let's say someone wanted to look at all of the JumpStart games in order of earliest to latest released, or vice-versa. In the link below, I experimented with using a table that lets you sort the games in…

Finnish JumpStart spin-off series

While looking at Finnish JumpStart releases, I came across something I definitely would've never guessed existed. Apparently, there's a whole series of games (for PC and Nintendo DS even) released in Finland that are essentially a spin-off of the JumpStart series. In Finland, the JumpStart games are released under the title "Alkupolku", so for example, JumpStart Kindergarten is called "Alkupolku Eskari".

So in Finland, Elävät Kirjat, the company that handled the distribution of the JumpStart products released by Knowledge Adventure, decided to launch a series of games called "Josefina Alkupolku", named for its new titular character Josefina. These games similarly focus on educational subjects like math, history, and so forth. The logo they …

JumpStart Trivia

So in my spare time, one of my go-to hobbies is this site called Sporcle. (You may have even used the site yourself before if you've ever felt like trying to name all the US states or the countries of the world.)

Anyways, I recently decided to finally make a JumpStart quiz on the site, since searching for one didn't give me any results. It's an incredibly simple one, for the sake of making it accessible to as many people as possible, but it's still the only JS related quiz on the site. It involves just identifying screenshots from each of the original grade-level based games. Here's a link to it if anyone wants to try it out.

What happened next kinda blew my mind a little. I didn't promote the quiz anywhere (until this blog post) but somehow…

Why Omitted?

How come they never introduced acrylic paint to Jumpstart Artist? What other paint types could I be missing? I understand watercolor, oil, and tempera (which is made from egg yolks) were already there. But no acrylic?

Language Pavilion Ideas

As I was saying before internet issues interrupted publishing of this, I was thinking there should have been a German Pavilion and an Italian Pavilion in JumpStart Languages, one: so children can learn those languages; and two: so Casey and Eleanor would have been in it.

Of course, with an Italian pavilion, that would have had two Italian stories, turning out to include the story used in all of the Pavilions that were in the game. That's right, "Little Red Riding Hood" originated in Italy.

I never copied the last try, so it got lost.

Of course, if there had been a Portuguese Pavilion, I propose that just like the English and Spanish ones were American- and Mexican-themed, the Portuguese one would be Brazilian-themed.

Any comments about it?

How to run JumpStart games in windowed mode

JumpStart games always want to run in full-screen mode, but on occasions, that might not be what you or I want. After a couple attempts of finding a way to run the games in windowed mode, I found a completely functional solution in the form of a handy tool called DxWnd. Download the program, run it, right-click the white area, click "Add", choose a name and path to the game executable (*.exe file), and then double-click the name (or right-click it and choose "Run"). Very easy and very handy! At least with the (mostly default) settings I chose, the end result isn't exactly like a "normal" window (I can't move it around, there's a strange black box behind it, and the minimize, maximize and close buttons don't appear until you click on the ar…

Surreal discovery on the JumpStart Preschool (1999) disc

As most of us probably know, many classic JumpStart CD-ROMs come with a special feature: they're also audio CDs. Stick them in a CD player and you can listen to songs from the game. Well, today I made a weird discovery concerning the audio component of JumpStart Preschool (1999). If you listen to the CD using a computer program such as Windows Media Player, the album title is that of a completely different CD and all the tracks have completely wrong names that I would assume to be tracks on that CD. The songs themselves are perfectly accurate to the game, as far as I can tell.

I wonder what possible connection there could be between this "Mama's Boy" CD and JumpStart that would cause this to happen.

JumpStart and Quiznos

I found some more info recently, it feels just a little disorganized at the moment so I thought I'd make a blog post before I edited any articles. So this is a bit similar to the JumpStart Dairy Queen toys, but concerns a different chain called Quiznos, which specializes in sub sandwiches.

In 2003, some JumpStart products appeared in Quiznos kids meals. I found the following image on an archived webpage from 2003 (from Quiznos website):


As you can see, the kids meal bag has Casey on the front, and there are JumpStart products featured, one of which is JumpStart 3 Ring Circus.

JumpStart concept art!

Recently I found some old JumpStart concept art on a website called trylonix.com! Trylonix Cooperation specializes in producing educational software, toys and games, and apparently they worked on some of the JumpStart games of the 90s. Kind of odd that I never heard of them before this while researching JumpStart, but here's their page on JumpStart products:

http://www.trylonix.com/portfolio/jump-start-top-selling-edutainment/

It says Trylonix developed the very first Jumpstart game, JumpStart Kindergarten, in 1994, and they've worked on other games since (mostly those from the 'Classic Era' of JumpStart).

Musical Cues for Activities

So in some games, like JumpStart Toddlers (1996) and JumpStart Preschool (1995), there are musical cues that play when starting each activity. Usually they're very short, something like a few seconds long each. An example of one is towards the beginning of this video, with the line "ABCDEFG, learn your ABCs with me".

For a few reasons, I was thinking of just adding these to the activity pages, under a "Musical Cue" header. Since they're part of the activity I think they're worth noting, but I don't think they really require pages of their own, seeing as how they're really short, don't serve any educational purpose and only exist as an introduction to the activity, and in some cases there aren't credits for these short musical cues.

Recently I did some work on some userboxes! You can put them on your user pages, blog posts, and even in comments. Userboxes are just meant to tell something about you. I decided to make some for the JS characters first. Here's all the userboxes I've made so far:


















To add a userbox, type something like FavoriteFrankieAdvanced and then put the brackets around it. Each userbox starts with Favorite, then the name of the character, and then either Classic or Advanced or Modern (for the art style). When you're adding a userbox, don't type spaces between the words, and make sure to write first letter of each word upprecase, like the FavoriteFrankieAdvanced example.

Great resource for getting JumpStart games to run on newer systems

I've sometimes experienced a rather frustrating and confusing issue when trying to run JumpStart games (usually ones released from 2001 and earlier). When I try to install the program, nothing happens. No error message or anything, just nothing. If I went into Task Manager, I would see some form of Setup that was clearly the JumpStart game in Processes, but nothing was actually happening. But what made this even more bizarre is that sometimes, if I waited a long time, the game would spontaneously start installing just like it should, and from then on everything worked perfectly!

Well, today I believe I have found the cause of my woes and the solution in the form of this Reddit page! Apparently, the JumpStart Setup is a "lower priority" for th…

Looking Back

I just realized that I've been editing this Wiki in earnest for about a year. Technically, I've been here since way back in 2011, but back then I didn't do much. It wasn't out of lack of desire, exactly; I've been researching the series almost obsessively since I was a child, and I'd long wanted to spew the knowledge I'd gained of the series onto the internet! It was because, frankly (or should I say Franklie? HA HA!!!!), it was all too daunting. As a knowledgeable fan of the series, I knew there was a lot to cover. And there weren't really any other active editors. It seemed hopeless. I was also frustrated by the fact that the creator of the Wiki had abandoned it; not that I'm saying he did something wrong, but I just really didn't want to …

JumpStart Play Time in School

I Want to Introduce JumpStart Games to Children who wants to Succeed in Learning. Most JS Games are released in 80s-2000s, and It's Okay to bring back the JS Experience. Last May 15, I Decided to Download JS Advanced Preschool Storyland at the Party for a 1 Year Old Girl & My Neighbors (Most of them are Kids because we are One Big Happy Family). After Few Minutes, A Teenager requires to Close the Game Quickly so she can play Music for the Party.

I'm now a 10th Grade Student who wants to Excel in Studies. Last June 21, There was a 3 Years Old Boy (which  is My Teacher's Youngest Son among the Three) who wants to stop messing up in the Classroom. I Told him if he wants to Play JumpStart Preschool with me. I Fixed the Graphics & Trying the Gam…

JumpStart All-Stars Quiz

Recently I discovered an online quiz that is very similar to the All-Star Match-up Quiz found in the JumpStart Advanced games. I already posted a link to it on the JumpStart All-Stars page, but here is another link to it:

http://reg.knowledgeadventure.com/Jumpstart/learningstyle/jumpstart_pop1.htm

It's essentially a personality quiz. The quiz will gauge what learning style you have, and which JumpStart character you match up to. It's short and fun. Here are my results:

My primary learning style matches up with Eleanor, the Reader. My secondary learning style matches up with Kisha, the Artist. (Can't really argue with that, two of my favorite hobbies are reading and drawing xD)

If you take the quiz, feel free to leave a comment about your quiz …

Notice: Deletion of pages

Lately, I've been marking quite a few pages for deletion. Every page that has been marked for deletion has the delete template, and can be found in Category:Candidates for deletion.

This wiki has many pages which are only one sentence each, and don't particularly pertain to JumpStart. My reasons for marking them for deletion are that they are not substantial enough, and the topic they pertain to can't be expanded enough to make them substantial.

For example, there exists a page on this wiki for the color red. It's not a character or a place, it's just the color red. This is the only content that page contains: "Red is a color in the JumpStart Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade."

Red, the color, is something that appears in almost all form…

New Appearances

I wanted to make two announcements. First, I've adopted the wiki, which means I am now an admin. It's my first time being an admin, but I'll try my best to do a good job! I hope to see this wiki flourish. :)

Second, I've customized the wiki's theme. Now there's a new wordmark, background, and favicon. :) As a kind of artsy person, it does make me happier to see more color here. Feel free to comment and say what you think about the new theme!
