By now almost everyone has heard of Zumba - it is the fun way to dance our bodies into good shape.   Now Majesco has added a game to their line up for kids.  The music is tween friendly and the screen shows kids their age doing the moves.

This game is such a fun way for children to experience the fun of fitness with Zumba.  They will enjoy this video game that incorporates the music they like with choreography designed to improve their coordination and self confidence.  (One of my first thoughts was that any kid who doesn't know how to dance but wants to get out on the floor at a school function would really benefit from this!)

This is a really fun way to get in shape - there are thirty songs, and the routines are fairly easy to follow after a little practice.  The workouts will give kids a chance to try a lot of different dance styles, including but not limited to Cumbia, Salsa, Hip-Hop, Reggaeton, Merengue, Swing, Surf, Disco, and Ballet.

The Wii version of the game allows up to four kids to play, and of courtse, others can simply dance along without being connected.

There are also several ways to play.  Choose Quick Mode and dance a to a single routine or pick Full Party and get a 20, 45 or 60 minute block of pres set or customized dances.

There are also some motion-based mini games which will help players develop some skills.

There is a gaming aspect too - with rewards and points earned for achievement during play.  Kids progress through the game and open up new content which keeps the game interesting and the players motivated.  Earn bonus videos, stickers, and buttons and learn some healthy lifestyle tips.

There is also a feature which allows players to customize their menu which a lot of kids like.  It makes the game more personal and gives them an opportunity to put some of their personality into it.

The game is widely available online and in the stores.  This would be a great gift of fun and fitness.
