The goal for our app is to take the things kids love about video games to encourage real world healthy behavior.
Our virtual pet simulator allows parents to establish fitness goals for their kids, and when kids accomplish those goals, their pet gets stronger just like a video game character. If you neglect your pet and don’t exercise it enough, it grows sad and unhealthy.
The app also provides narrative context for fitness goals by creating virtual kingdoms that kids explore through interactive storybook adventures. We plan to regularly release new stories and adventures each month. To advance through the stories, kids have to complete the fitness goals their parents establish, which keeps them motivated to play outside and ride.
