For years, JumpStart has been creating games for kids. Their new Wii game, JumpStart Get Moving: Family Fitness had my four year old glued to the Wii! JumpStart has combined family fun with fitness expert, Brooke Burke.
Similar to Jumpeez on www.jumpstart.com, you get to design your character from their hair to their shoes. You also get to choose the type of environment you play in (beach, Egypt, etc.).
There are more than 15 sports challenges, and Brooke Burke gives you tips throughout the game and also demonstrates moves. You can use the balance board, Wii remote and Nunchucks. You can play a series of games or choose more players to go head to head.
Game categories include volleyball, basketball, racing, football, baseball and many more!
My Daughter's favorite game, hands down, was baseball. She enjoyed being able to swing the "bat" and try to hit the target. I love the fact that technology is incorporated with the fitness aspect and is geared toward children.
Here are some images from the game:
