Now, let’s learn how to play Animal Jam!
Now that you’ve created your animal – here at NG Kids, we just couldn’t resist being a white, fluffy seal! – you’re ready to explore the world of Jamaa!
You’ll find your animal has landed in one of the many “worlds” that make up Jamaa. Move around by clicking on an area you want to move to or using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
Meeting other Jammers
Interact with other Jammers by clicking on their name – you can add them as a buddy, visit their den (a Jammer’s house), or chat to them using the text box and emojis at the bottom of the screen.
To visit other “lands“, simply select the globe in the right hand corner of the screen and click on the area you want to explore!
When you encounter a new plant or animal species, click it to learn more about it! You’ll unlock fab facts and information to store in your Journey Book to look at later.
You’ll meet all sorts of wildlife in Jamaa, including flamingos, tapirs and honeybees!
Finding more cool content
While you’re in Jamaa, enter doorways to find rooms and areas where you can play games, buy accessories with “gems” (virtual money you can spend in Jamaa), and meet new Jammers, too.
You’ll even find cool extra content like printable activity sheets to colour in and some awesome National Geographic video content!
You can use your gems in exchange for all sorts of cool stuff, like decorating your den, buying accessories for your animal, and even buying your own pet!
And don’t forget to keep an eye out on Animal Jam’s Daily Explorer blog, for more more exciting Animal Jam content!
