Madagascar on Jumpstart

I was asked to do a review of the new MadagascarTM section of JumpstartTM.  It is available at The MadagascarTM section is modeled after the Central Park Zoo from the film.  It starts off with you going around the zoo and looking all the stars of the film, Alex, Melman, Gloria, Marty and the Penguins, play games, and you learn interesting fun facts about each of the animals. You then go on a train ride through Paris, France and Switzerland to Italy.  Italy is its own interactive area.  There are all sorts of games and videos.  You can even climb the Leaning Tower of Piza.  My 9 year-old son, Gabe and my 12 year-old son, Sam love the game.  Here are some thing they think about MadagascarTM section:

Gabe: "I like Europe a lot. I like how the city is laid out. They have lots of stuff like canals, gondolas, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa."

Sam: "I like the Transmorpher in the Penguin Head Quarters.  If you collect the right amount of things, you can mix them in the Transmorpher and turn people into animals."

Our only complaint about the game is that you see Paris and Switzerland, but you can't go visit them or any other country in Europe except for Italy. 

It is an absolutley wonderful interactive.  My family loves it.
