What is Animal Jam?

Confused about Animal Jam? Here we explain exactly what Animal Jam is, how it works and why we love it - even for the most novice of gamers.


What is Animal Jam?


Animal Jam is an online game recommended for children 9+ in which you become your favourite animal. All the animals live in the virtual world of Jamaa, a tropical wonderland full of other animals looking to play games, have fun, chat and make friends, too!

 

As you may have guessed, the animals of Jamaa are not your average fluffy critters. You can dress your animal in different accessories, colours and patterns. In fact, you're free to customise your animal in whatever way you want, whether you dream of becoming a purple penguin or a glasses-wearing gibbon - it's all possible in Jamaa.


Is Animal Jam educational?


What is Animal Jam?

Yes, but it's fun, too!

 

The game itself aims to teach children about the beautiful and natural world around them, through educational, safe, fun play. Partnered with National Geographic, it encourages children to learn more about the environment. In exploring Jamaa - an exotic world where animals are disappearing and the environment needs your help - you'll learn about different lands, ecosystems and animals.

 

As a 'Jammer' (a player) you'll encounter plants and animals that hold cool information. Jammers can then choose to store their learnings in their Journey Book, to find again later. And the best thing? These facts come from two renowned, real-life scientists, who each have their own activity areas in the game, full of facts, cool info and a place where they can also answer Jammers' questions. They are herpetologist, Dr. Brady Barr and marine biologist, Dr. Tierney Thys.

New educational videos are releaed every single day in Jamaa. From informative animal videos, National Geographic content and Animal Jam's scientists answering questions.

 

Jammers can play games, watch videos and make friends - it's basically an animal lover's dream!


Is Animal Jam safe?


What is Animal Jam?

Parents have control over their child's Animal Jam account settings, including the ability to manage their chat preferences. The game activity is also strictly moderated to make sure that all Animal Jam play is safe. You won't find outside advertising on Animal Jam, and they operate a strict privacy policy.
