Jumpstart will be sending you the Get Moving Family Fitness Wii game in the days to come. Please email me with your mailing address to accept your prize.
To play Get Moving: Family Fitness regular Wii controllers are required. Some games offer the choice of switching in a Wii Fit Balance Board, if you have one.
Gavin enjoyed the many options provided in this disk for playing familiar sports. His favorite activity is the Basketball 3 Point Shot drill. We sent him to play independently in hopes of getting a realistic picture of how easy or difficult the game was for a six year old. He had a bit of trouble setting up the initial profile on his own. This could be due to the fact he was most anxious to just get started. Once he was exploring the games he was able to figure out the necessary buttons and hand motions for many activities without reading the directions. Yet, there were a few sports where the controls were different than other Wii games he is familiar with and the reading the instructions was important.
We did not have access to a balance board, so we did not get to try these activities using that piece of equipment. However, I am looking forward to trying the Step Aerobics on the balance board sometime soon.
Although we still believe it is essential to teach our kids the basics of sports in the real world, outdoor, arena. This Wii game is a fun addition to their repertoire of fitness fun!
