2K Play teams with Nickelodeon for kids' fitness game

Publish date:

Nickelodeon Fit has arrived in the US, giving kids the chance to leap around with the likes of Dora the Explorer.

The title, from 2K Play and Nickelodeon, features 30 games developed in collaboration with physical education and expert science expert Dr Jacqueline Goodway PhD. Activities use either the Wii Remote or the Wii Balance Board and include trampolining with Dora, skateboarding with Diego, running with Kai-lan and jumping rope with The Backyardigans.

"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. "We hope that regular participation with Nickelodeon Fit will empower children to start on the road to an active and healthy lifestyle."
