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.

love it for me and my kids

We purchased in 2018 so I don't know if this has been updated since last review but we love it. We purchased for our 4 year olds bday and we have a 6 and 8 yo that can use it too though the 8 yo is a tiny 8 and just fits. Placed next to the treadmill the little one peddles while I walk then I am able to guide through the games while I exercise. It only works with a newer model iPad so that may have been the issues the people were having with the older models. iPad 2 and further along. Android devices I think it's meant to but we don't have them so I can't comment. We also only use the fisher price app and not the cartoon character branded ones so I am not sure on the content of those but the fisher price one is great education and exercise combined obviously used in moderation but I can only go so long on the treadmill :)

A Dud

Fisher price ruined my child's Christmas. This is the only thing my 3 year old wanted from Santa. On X-mas we put it together for him and it had a short (the lights would flicker and than go off). We exchanged at Toys R' Us where we bought it - whiched raised a lot of questions by our 6 year old twins since Santa brought it. Toys R' us did not even blink. Apparantly they had been slammed with Smart Cycle returns due to the same problem. The service counter was piled high with them. We thought that we would try another. This one did the same thing. We ended up just returning it and never bought another one. The employee said that they had gotten even more returned for the same reason. This toy is the biggest dud. I would not waste my money on it.
