Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Perfect active gaming for all ages

We love this EA Active (yes, even better than Wii Fit)because it gives us opportunity to do workouts together that is "customizable" and more varied (ie. sports, cardio, upper body, lower body)than Wii Fit with regards to creating your favorite workout. The trainers come out in PIP (picture and picture)so it is easy to follow. The characters although adult looking, are more realistic than Wiifit characters. The trophies given after achieving goals are very encouraging. The workouts vary from easy to hard and would mirror an active workout that you would do in a class of circuit training and cardio in sport clubs. My 5 year old enjoyed playing this due to the trophies he gets from persisting to play different games (ie. first hour trophy, baseball batting x 200 etc)
