From farming to fishing and routine dragon training exercises, there is more than enough to keep any young Viking busy as they explore Berk and some of it new neighboring parts.

The further a player progresses with missions and basic day-to-day tasks, the more they’ll be able to earn in order to customize their avatar and game. School of Dragons’ in-game stores allow your kids to create unique Viking avatars as amazing in-game extensions of themselves. Students can change the look of their hair, eyes, outfits, accessories, and so much more!

Registered players will be able to walk through the village on Berk or area likes the Great Hall, which were made famous by the hit film.

Madagascar Is Coming To JumpStart!

Hey Blasters, some exciting news has arrived! Our friends over at JumpStart have been excitedly anticipating a new addition to the JumpStart.com world, and it is here at last! DreamWorks’ Madagascar™ has just moved in to MainStreet, so all of you Blasters out there should check it out to see all those familiar animal faces from the film!

There are tons of new things for you to do in JumpStart’s Central Park Zoo, with everything from challenging slide puzzles to interacting with Marty, Melman, Alex, Gloria, and the mischevious Penguins!

The Penguins even have their own Headquarters where you can find activities like Kowalski’s Transmorpher. It is a lot like turning your friend into Monster Morphs in Math Blaster, except you have the chance to turn your friends into awesome animal creatures.

Even before you get started with the Transmorpher, you have to travel to the new European Habitat to collect ‘Zoovenirs’! You can experience amazing all sorts of European sites, including the streets and canals of Venice. All of the new Madagascar™-themed games in this European area will be wildly fun, with everything from playing hide and seek with Mort to helping Rico with some explosively fun finds. You can even take a train through the European countryside and “Photo-bomb” a few traveling tourists.

All of these new activities are so much fun, but we cannot forget about the fun you can have while you learn. As you explore the different parts of the Madagascar™ land, you will probably notice that there are a number of interesting factoids that will expand your knowledge about Italian art and history, as well as about the various animal species living in the game.

So Blasters, have you seen the JumpStart shuttle port in the MathAcademy section of Math Blaster?

Head on over to this Shuttle area and you can fly to the world of JumpStart to explore the new and exciting Madagascar™ land. We cannot wait to hear about what you have to say about this latest addition to the JumpStart World. What do you think about the arrival of Madagascar™ to JumpStart?
