Get Your Family Moving ...
and find out how fitness can be fun!
For over a decade, JumpStart has been providing us with wonderful educational entertainment for our children with programs from Knowledge Adventure like JumpStart and the Math Blaster Series. And now, they have jumped into the main stream with their latest family fitness game for the Wii. Celebrity Co-host and champion of ABC's Dancing With the Stars, Brooke Burke, aids us with her fun and helpful fitness tips throughout the game. Explore over 10 exotic arenas like Atlantis, Egypt, Bug View, Jungle, Jurassic, Castle, Beach, Farm, Space and many others.
Begin by naming and designing your own character, build custom routines, and play in one of the fabulous exotic arenas. My four-year-old loves to play dress up and she is a pro at designing characters for games. We started out with quick play before trying the routines. With each activity there are three levels: easy, medium and hard. We all started out with the easy mode so we could get used to the moves for each activity. You can begin by choosing one of the main sports like baseball(catching & batting), basketball(lunge pass, 3 point shot), football(QB passing, run back run, tire run, catching), volleyball(bump, set and serve) and racing (running track, ice skating, speed skating, flying race, bicycle race, step aerobics, boxing). For balance, you can play dodgeball or pinball. We had loads of fun playing basket ball on the farm, volley ball at the beach, football in the castle and much more. I enjoyed the step aerobics. The game runs with the Wii remote, nunchuk, and Wii board. I advise as a parent that you use supervision when using the Wii board. Jumping on the Wii board can cause damage. Thankfully, many of the games can be played with just the Wii remote and nunchuk. If you can not watch your children, I would advise to only allow the Wii remote and nunchuk games to be used during playtime. JumpStart® Get Moving™ is one of the most enjoyable games you can play with your whole family.
One of my daughter's is a teenager and she enjoyed ice skating because of it's difficulty level for her age. She enjoyed the challenge. My husband enjoyed the main sports like basketball and baseball. We believe this is a great way to have fun and work on being more fit for most all members of the family. You do not need to be an experienced gamer or a long time gamer to play this game either. Not only is is great family fun but it is affordable fun. (SRP $29.99)
