Now that the weather is clearing up, Hops and I thought it could be fun to spend a day at the JS Stadium. There is nothing quite like stepping away from the bustle of DownTown and getting in some healthy exercise and friendly competition. The JS Stadium is filled with different sporting events that you can compete in all while getting some extra practice on your geometry, arithmetic, and spelling.
While you can also play Volleyball and Football, Hops and I are going to stick with playing a heated 1-on-1 match on the Basketball Court. Hops might have the magic jumps to shoot some stellar three-pointers, but I am still confident I will school him today.
Before we can start shooting hoops, we have to earn our basketballs with a bit of our math smarts. Hops and I agreed to focus on subtraction. What he does not know is that I am a supreme subtract-er! The more answers you can guess correctly, the more balls you will have to shoot!
Ha! I knew it! Well I have 7 more shots than Hops, which will help a LOT as we start shooting. However, it is best not to get too conceited. I need to stay focused on being the best athlete I can. Also make sure to do your stretches just like Hops!
When shooting make sure that you hit the space part to jump in the air, and then hit the space bar again to shoot the basketball. You want to time this correctly so that you will have an accurate shot and score as many hoops as you can. Also, the more shots you make in a row, the higher the value of each of your shots. So if you score 5 basketballs in a row, you will get five points for your next shot.
Well we are down to two more shots and it is neck and neck. Hops has 505 points and so do I… I am going to need some extra luck for this shot!
Oh no! I missed. Well, now I just need to make sure Hops does the same will he make his next two shots?
He did. Well this is a shame, but here at the JumpStart Stadium Basketball is meant to be all in good fun. Let us all give Hops an extra congratulations on beating me on the court!

It is GAMETIME at JS Stadium. As soon as you step foot through those wide, open doors, you will instantly hear the roar of the crowd cheering you on and confetti flying in the air. With a boost of confidence, why not try taking on the Jumpee Mission in our Game of the Week? Practice your spelling skills and collect as many volleyballs as you can to serve up some serious spikes against the opposing crabs. Once you get the hang of how a round of Volleyball JS-style works, try your best at earning over ten volleyballs in a row! budurl.me/GoTW7

“Kisha, here! Let me tell you. The competition for best dressed in JumpStart is heating up! There are so many great outfits worn by you Jumpeez I had just the hardest time trying to pick my favorite styles. You Jumpeez sure know how to coordinate an outfit! Well, I had to choose four awesome get-ups, and I went with those that really brought out a Jumpee’s personality. Without further ado, here are my favorite styles of the month!
On the left: Laurel FrostWolf
True to her hobbies, casting spells and rocking out, Laurel has a look that says “punk rock charm caster”. The best part is her red sneakers, which really make her sneakers pop!
On the right: Michelle WaterKitty
Michelle is ready for the ball! With her snazzy blue costume and mysterious mask, she is well-dressed for her dance off challenges at Poseidon’s Hangout.
On the left: Wyatt BronzeCheetah
Decked out in his bronze athletic gear, Wyatt truly lives up to his name with this outfit.
When he isn’t sprinting around JumpStart and competing in games at the JS Stadium, he likes to head to FutureLand. Here, he uses his speed and knowledge of history to save the past at the Time Slicer Machine.
On the right: Zach SillyGoat
Zach might be a silly Jumpee, but there is nothing funny about his appreciation for his mother! I cannot help but give a Jumpee some extra fashion points for sharing their Mother’s Day pride, which is why I had to give Zach a spot in our May Lookbook.
If you see these four awesome Jumpeez walking around town, make sure to give them a warm hello! I hope you appreciated these outfits just as much as I did, and I cannot wait to see what all of you have in store for me over the upcoming summer season. Talk to you later!”

In addition to raising your loyal Mythies and Petz, did you know you can also own a group of Minisaurs? Minisaurs are an awesome group of fish that you can swim around with in a GIANT fishbowl in ScienceLand! They are a bit high maintenance, but it is so much fun taking care of your Minisaurs. Growing your Minisaurs past the age of 1 takes some hard work, but the value of responsibility (not to mention the gold coins) you will earn makes it totally worth it! Try raising a group of Minisaurs for our Game of the Week Jumpee Mission! budurl.me/GoTW6
