The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Educational Value

Kids learn to dance by mimicking the energetic moves of the on-screen dancers. Zumba's unique blend of aerobics and choreographed dance moves teaches kids that exercising can be fun, while introducing them to the music of different regions and cultures. Zumba Kids is a kid-friendly dancing and exercise game that encourages movement and activity in a fun way.

Positive Messages

The game encourages dancing and exercising in a fun and kid-friendly way. Kids receive positive reinforcement, and earn achievements, stickers, and other goodies to keep them motivated.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Kids dance along to other kids who demonstrate the dance moves and look like they're having a great time.

Ease of Play

Exercise routines are designed with an appropriate difficulty level for kids, and accompanied by visual cues to help players master the moves.

Violence & Scariness

Most of the songs are from pop artists, but there's no overt advertising or pressure to purchase anything.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Zumba Kids is a dancing and exercise game based on the Zumba dance fitness program with kid-friendly songs and choreography designed for ages seven to 12. Songs don't contain any racy dance moves or inappropriate content. The game encourages players to get up and move through Zumba's unique blend of aerobics and dancing.

What's it about?

ZUMBA KIDS lets kids perform 30 dance routines with easy-to-follow choreography. It features unobjectionable content from pop artists like Justin Bieber and Willow Smith in dance genres including hip hop, swing, disco, and salsa. Kids can play individual routines or pre-set classes, or create their own custom class by combining their favorite routines. There are also three mini-games: Power Up, Freeze Star, and Act Like A. Kids can track their progress against family and friends, and there's multiplayer support for two players on Kinect and four players on Wii.

Is it any good?

Zumba Kids helps kids builds self-confidence and coordination through fun, energetic dance routines that feature kid-friendly choreography and lack the racy, "adult" content found in dancing games that cater to older players. Kids receive plenty of positive reinforcement (including unlockable achievements, badges, and stickers), and learn by mimicking the movements of dancers on the screen -- who are kids just like them. Zumba Kids is a fun musical workout, especially for younger players.
