The School of Dragons game is originated from the How to Train Your Dragon movie series and has registered over 40 million players globally. JumpStart currently has a large user base of over 5 million monthly active users spanning across North America, Europe, South America, Asia and Oceania.

Neopets Legends & Letters connects existing players and new fans with a brand new role-playing word puzzle game, in which children battle in the amazing world of Neopia. The game also features customizable characters along with completely new storylines. In this epically fun game, players, particularly children, can establish and enrich their library of vocabularies in a happy and encouraging atmosphere, while jumping into their unlimited creative world of imagination.

Mr. Jim Czulewicz, the CEO of JumpStart said, "We are delighted to introduce this new member of Neopets family. Neopets is a much loved brand with 20 years of history and we devoted a good deal of time and energy to offer a brand new experience for fans, particularly children, for fun and easy learning. Our Neopets series become one of the biggest internet phenomena and is also associated with teaching children to code and ultimately pursue careers in STEM. The addition of Neopets Legends & Letters is definitely a reinforcement of Neopets' status in educational games. We believe that we have captured the perfect mix of nostalgia and the elements that made the game great along with a complete refresh of features to keep Neopets relevant and exciting to everyone. In addition, JumpStart has long been a herald in promoting interactive learning and is specialised in creative and educational games for K12 children. With our expertise and knowledge in educational games, we are on a mission to continue to delivering timeless and engaging games that are enjoyed by both children and adults."
