Fisher Price Smart Cycle

The Fisher Price Smart Cycle is one of the most innovative toys for your preschool age children. The Smart Cycle stands out from the rest of the toys marketed for preschool age children, in that it combines both physical exercise and fun learning in one toy. This is a stand alone toy that connects directly into your television or VCR, using standard RGB connections. No additional game controllers or computers required. The Smart Cycle contains programs that teach the important number and letter recognition skills, shape and color recognition, and matching games, that are so very important in early childhood development. So here is the really great part of this toy. The Fisher Price Smart Cycle is designed so that your child pedals away while he or she is watching and learning, making this an ideal toy for those cold, rainy afternoons when you really do not want your youngster outside playing.Your child also learns important hand/eye coordination skills by learning to steer the Smart Cycle while visiting Math Mountain, Shape Lake, Numbers Field and Letter Creek. The Smart Cycle also contains a preschool sized joy stick, to further improve that hand/eye skill sets. As a grandparent, I normally would not be endorsing a product that had my grandchildren watching television, but this toy requires that I make an exception. Like most adults today, I am concerned about the amount of time my grandkids and all children, spend in front of the TV or on the computer, destroying space aliens instead of learning or getting physical exercise. So when a product can combine learning and exercise I have to sing its praises. Last year at Christmas my grandson, Jakob, received a Fisher Price Smart Cycle.Jakob was three at the time, and was learning his letters, colors and counting. He was also just learning how to ride a tricycle. But he was having a minor problem. Jakob would forget that he had to pedal, and soon would be scooting along instead of pedaling. And to be honest, he had a minor problem with the steering thing also. A year later, Jakob is an expert at both pedaling and steering. I am sure that the furniture that he used to run into is also glad that he has mastered those skills! While I gladly endorse the Fisher Price Smart Cycle, more importantly Jakob also endorses it. The Smart Cycle is one of the only toys that he received last year that he still plays with today, a year later. Now, neither I nor his parents would ever tell him that he is learning and growing every time he uses the Smart Cycle.He thinks he is just playing, but we know better. Jakob started preschool this fall knowing all of his letters, numbers, colors and shapes and is a darn good tricycle rider thanks to the Smart Cycle. So the Fisher Price Smart Cycle is approved by Jakob, his parents and grandparents. What more could you want in a toy for your favorite preschooler?
