Making friends in JumpStart is easy; on the other hand, keeping track of all of them can be quite the challenge, However, you can thank your lucky JumpStars that Frankie and his team have equipped your Jumpee with a helpful and handy Buddy List! Here’s everything you need to know about the options available on your JumpStart Buddy List!
Locate the JumpStart toolbar at the bottom of your playing screen. Hover over the buttons to find the Buddy List and start connecting your in-game pals at any moment.
Time to hang out – With the Online tab, you can easily view your buddies who are currently online, invite your buddy to come see you, or click on a buddy to go see them! To manage the rest of your buddies, you can click on the Offline tab. With each buddy listed you have the option to view more about the Jumpee or remove them from your list.
Is a Jumpee not acting on their best behavior? You can choose to ignore them and manage that list with the Ignore tab.
Add a real-life buddy in game - Does your neighbor play JumpStart too? How about friends from school or even your cousins? Adding them will be a cinch when you know their Buddy Code. You can find your Buddy Code on the top part of your Buddy list. You can exchange yours for them to add you, or you can add them by entering their code under the Requests tab.
Be sure to check your Requests tab regularly to see who would like to make new friends with you!
Now that you know more about the Buddy List, head in to JumpStart and hang out with your buds or make brand new Jumpee pals!

The amount of submissions that have been received from all you Jumpeez has been amazing! Frankie is so excited about all the shoutouts, jokes, stories, and questions that we decided to make it even easier for you to both send in and view other Jumpeez submissions.

After you have finished reading through past submissions, you can easily send in one of your own by choosing the type of content you would like to send in. Simply click on the category and then type in your submission. It is now easier than ever to send in your jokes, riddles, stories and more right in the game! As if these categories were not exciting enough, Jumpeez will be able to send in video submissions soon! You heard that right, your own personal videos.

Summer has finally arrived and it’s taking over JumpStart! While exploring the JumpStart world, you might notice some changes as you come across the new FunZone located in MainStreet. This new area includes the giant Tiki Swimming Pool, with a cool Tiki hut and a huge, winding waterslide. Head over to MainStreet and join in the fun with the other Jumpeez by flying down the waterslide and making a splashing entrance.
If you’re looking for a thrill, be sure to use the launch pad to jump up to the top of the wicked waterslide. This slide winds around and around as you glide effortlessly down the water-filled attraction. After an exciting trip down this wet ride, splash into the Tiki Pool and enjoy a quick swim!
Be sure you Jumpeez don’t spend all your time lounging in the pool; you would not want to miss out on the Summer Scavenger Hunt!
To stay up to speed on what you are still looking for in the Scavenger Hunt, check your communicator for the remaining items in Coney Island, MainStreet, and the Beach so you know where to look and what you are looking for. Once you find all the pieces, you’ll win a special prize for your hard work!
Test out all our new summer activities and enjoy it while it lasts!
