Why we love this app
We love that this app gears specifically to childhood activities like crab-walk and wheelbarrow, while staying organized enough to offer educational value. This app could be improved by an easier to use interface.
What it teaches and how it works
FitnessKids teaches children how much fun it can be to be active, by offering examples and motivation for 25 different exercises. The colorful backgrounds and fun music offer a stimulating experience while the real-life examples act out the poses for each level. However, the entire app is slightly confusing to navigate. They may need your help in setting up each activity.
Why your kid won't be able to put it down
Kids will keep coming back as their abilities grow as there are several different difficultly levels. The training portion of the app keeps track of progress so you can keep an eye on how they are progressing. The 'joust' portion offers competition among kids to try to best others in the same exercise. There's lots to do, and kids will love coming back to play often.
