Ideal way to keep the kids busy during winter or the rainy summer days.....

It's a stationary bike, a gaming system and a learning centre - all rolled into one!

Plugged straight into your TV, as your child pedals, favourite character friends guide them through learning discoveries, games and even exciting races.

Keep them active even when the sun's not shining and watch as they improve their bike riding skills (hand/eye coordination).

Multiple levels of play for different ages and stages!

Includes learning adventure game cartridge and extra long cable (TV not included), plus use the joystick for plenty of extra games and activities.

SmartCycle comes with the learning journey software .

The software works in three modes:

In Explore/ Encounter, pedal through various environments, learning on the way.

In Arcade Games take a pit stop into a game played with the joystick. The games reinforce important preschool concepts like letters, numbers, shapes & colours.

In Race mode race with other cars or time race with a second player.

Requires 4 x D batteries (not included).

For ages 4 years and over.

We bought one for our kids in April and, IMHO, it's not very good. The graphics are awful, many of the dull games don't even use the pedals and it is really slow to respond to the controls. I suppose twenty years ago it would have been a marvel but to be honest it's been a waste of the £40 I paid for it.

Depends on the age of the child really - it's suitable upto about 5 or 6 at a push only.

Pros:
Pretty well made
Batteries last quite a while
A reasonable selection of games are available BUT predominately from US based suppliers
Good exercise for kids - would be better if the pedals had some sort of feedback.

Cons:
Graphics are a bit "meh" but so what (it's a kids game). It's also composite output only (yellow, red, white cables)
Room it takes up, as you can't take it apart that easily.
Having to get the games from the US

Best games for it are pretty much all of them apart from the supplied one . My son loves the hot wheels, spongebob and dinosaur games .

Wish I'd seen it when it was on offer...........back up to £99 now
