Giggles is a female gopher character who is the mascot of JumpStart Toddlers (1996).


Giggles is a small brown gopher with beady eyes and a black nose. Her late 90's promotional artwork shows her with a black bowtie and small black eyebrows.


Giggles is cheerful and playful, and very eager to help the player along through the game.

According to a biography on the old Knowledge Adventure site, her favorite foods are vegetables, flower bulbs, and sweet potatoes. Giggles' favorite school subject is music, and she is especially partial to Russian composers. Her best friend is Jack the dog, and her favorite hobby is feeding him. Her motto is "laughter is the best medicine!"
