Zing Toys Z Curve Bow

This is one of those toys even adults like to play with. Challenge your kids to a target shooting contest with the Z-Curve Bow, which comes with three snazzy foam arrows and arrow clip. Set up a target up to 30 feet away, aim, shoot, and then race across the yard to retrieve the arrows. You’ll get to practice your marksmanship and get your heart rate up.

Rockboard Scooter

The new Rockboard Scooter is a new mode of transpo for your kids that will have them rocking and rolling their bodies into shape. Rocking back and forth on the scooter will challenge their core muscles, improve their sense of balance, and get them outdoors where they are more likely to move around as opposed to sitting on the couch in front of the TV.

Geopalz Activity Tracker App

The awesome kid-friendly decorative pedometer now comes with an app for those tech-savvy kids who like to compete with their friends and family. Free for GeoPalz users, the app works in conjunction with the pedometer to encourage family fitness by counting steps and tracking distance traveled. For a family with several registered GeoPalz pedometers, the iPhone app can track the steps of each family member. At the start of the activity, the app user can simply select family members that are present and record steps for everyone. To use the iPhone app, a user simply logs in with an existing GeoPalz account.

Coursing Around

For children 4 years old and older, Coursing Around is a ring-bound fun-filled activity guide that comes with sidewalk chalk, diagrams for a wide variety of “courses” for you and your children to draw with the chalk, directions how to navigate the courses, and other fitness tips for healthy kids. Hopscotch is only the beginning, your kids can follow courses that get them shuffling, lunging, kicking, jump roping, and more. Have races with your kids on their courses to increase their motivation to move.
