We love our Wii system!  The boys were excited to see some of their favorite Nickelodeon characters come to life in the fun and easy Nickelodeon Fit Wii Game.  Nickelodeon Wii Fit is available for purchase in stores and online, retailing for $39.99.  It is ideal for kids from ages 2-6.

Nickelodeon Fit Wii brings kids’ favorite Nickelodeon characters together for the first time in one game and makes exercise fun with 30 different exercise games for the Wii.  Created in collaboration with Dr. Jackie Goodway, chair of the National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), this game was made to ensure kids receive the recommended amount of exercise per day through gameplay.  Preschoolers can choose from activities including hurdles with Kai-lan, jump rope with The Backyardigans, trampolining with Dora and skateboarding with Diego.

“We know from research that in their early years, children learn the exercise patterns that will carry over to their adult lives,” said Dr. Goodway, chair of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education’s (NASPE) “Active Start” physical activity guidelines committee.  “We hope that regular participation with Nickelodeon Fit will empower children to start on the road to an active and healthy lifestyle.

In addition, Nickelodeon Fit encourages parents to get involved with their children’s exercise routine.  Through the Fitness Stats tracking feature, parents can ensure their child is receiving a proper workout by monitoring total exercise time and intensity on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.  Nickelodeon Fit offers helpful fitness icons at the beginning of each exercise that indicate if the activity is vigorous, moderate, or light and which fitness categories are being targeted.  Parents can also create custom workouts based on their child’s needs and interests, such as including more cardio or stretching games.

“We’re proud to deliver an interactive entertainment experience that provides a unique way for kids to get active and parents with the tools to help keep them active in their formative years,” said Steve Lux, vice president of business development for 2K Play.  “By partnering with Dr. Goodway and Nickelodeon, we’ve created the perfect mix of physical education, entertainment and interactivity that we hope will make exercising fun and frequent for children.

Nickelodeon Fit is compatible with the Wii balance board but can be played with a Wii-mote as well.

MY THOUGHTS

This is a fun way to get kids to interact with their favorite Nickelodeon characters.  Video games are often looked down upon, but with Wii games (Nickelodeon Fit Wii in this case), the players are up and moving around.  Thanks to 2K Play for making this review possible on The Mommy-Files.

I received a copy of Nickelodeon Fit Wii to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.

    Where exactly is the review? Some copied and pasted PR-text is all I se…

    Even by blogstandards this must be an all time low.

    Well at least you got an copy of the game from the publisher. Good for you. Hope you got a few bucks for it on E-bay.

  5. I am a health and wellness fanatic and it’s extremely crucial to me that people find out how to eat right and stay toned. Although it doesn’t matter
    to a bunch of other people, eating healthy foods and remaining fit is really
    crucial to me. It’s so depressing that there are so many people nowadays that do not care at all about eating healthy or worry about staying fit.
