The things parents have to do these days to convince the kids to "get off that darn couch and exercise already! Oh, and CLEAN YOUR BLOODY TEETH WHILE YOU'RE AT IT!". Etc.
With recent reports that the obesity problem in the UK will be on scale with global warming in a few years' time, the Smart Cycle from Fisher Price sounds ideal for provoking kids to develop an interest in keeping healthy. They also have fun at the same time, with the child-sized bike being attached to the TV and plenty of game cartridges made available for the young gaming enthusiast. It's already available on Amazon.com for $89.92, with the game cartridges selling for approximately $20 each. Somehow I doubt they have a Road Rash or Burn Out equivalent.
