Toddlers have endless energy and they love to get moving. Fisher-Price’s new product, the Think & Learn Smart Cycle, is intended to combine exercise and learning. Parents connect the stationary tricycle to a tablet or TV so children can play learning games while they get more fit. But should kids this age be learning to ride a real trike outside instead?
The Doctors think the product looks pretty cute. “It seems a little odd, but if that’s what it takes to get them to burn some calories,” says Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon. Ob/Gyn Dr. Nita Landry adds that anything that tires a toddler out is a win for parents!
ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork says it might be a good alternative when kids can’t be outside because of weather or other concerns. “As long as it doesn’t replace that completely,” he adds. “There’s still nothing like a kid learning to ride a bicycle.”
He notes that we tend to project adult habits onto children, and they’re already getting more than enough screen time. Ideally, this product wouldn’t let the kids play the games unless they pedaled!
