Game Play

The player can explore the interactive preschool classroom and click on items to play activities, listen to songs, or see animations. Clicking on the gift in the middle of the room under the table will take the player to a random activity.

Being that this is one of earlier JumpStart games, there is no toolbar feature, nor is there any kind of points or rewards system. The game does have a progress report, where the player can see how they are doing.
