Fisher-Price Exercise Bike and Tablet Holder: Tykes on Bikes

by Conner Flynn

So this is what it has come to. Your kid spends like 20 hours a day on his or her tablet, eating HoHos and DingDongs and mainlining Mountain Dew, while snorting Pixie Dust off the backside of your PS4. So naturally, tons of kids are all obese now. Good job. You could have simply limited their time on their digital devices and introduced them to the outside world so they could get some exercise and play time. Well, Fisher Price is here to help where you as a parent have failed.

It’s a tablet holder that doubles as an exercise bike for kids. The Think & Learn Smart Cycle uses video games to trick out of shape kids into shaping up. It wirelessly connects to a tablet mounted on its handlebars via Bluetooth, letting youngsters control one of four downloadable iOS or Android games through the speed of their pedaling.

Fisher-Price will add more apps in the future, which will expand on the educational focus of the original four that help teach reading, math, science, and social studies. The $150 Think & Learn Smart Cycle can also be connected to a larger screen using apps running on hardware like an Apple TV or smart televisions that support Android TV.

So here’s the problem: You’re still reinforcing the same bad behavior – the idea that kids have to be glued to their tablet screens all day. So, let’s say you get the not-obese child of your dreams thanks to this thing? Well, that just means you have a skinny zombie instead of a fat one. Perhaps an actual bicycle would be a better idea.
