Jumpstart Toddlers (2000)/Transcript


JumpStart Toddlers received a Deluxe release circa 2000, which included the bonus disc "My Learning Scrapbook".

JumpStart Toddlers was re-released as JumpStart Advanced Toddlers: School Time in JumpStart Advanced Toddlers. It was later re-released as JumpStart Advanced Preschool: Toddlers School Time circa 2007.


  • This game is one of the few examples of an updated version of a game from the classic series which features a completely new cast of characters and setting with no resemblance to those in the original title. It shares this trait with JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade: Sapphire Falls.
  • Strangely, early US and European releases feature a fox on the box art that does not appear in game.
