Great toy but lacks longevity
Pros: Simple setup
Easy to use
Cons: Lack of content
I purchased this for my 7 year old as a way to get him to do more exercise while in the house when its cold out. Set up was easy and took less than 10 minutes. A frustrating part about set up though is that the bolts are not labeled and all 3 sizes are so small its hard to tell the difference. You simply have to just try to fit it into the precut holes of the plastic to find the right one.Once set up you download the app onto a kindle or iPad. Note that if you have a Kindle fire kids edition I could not find the app. Once you open the app simply turn on the switch and wait for the runner to bluetooth connect. From here there are three modes of running, tracking field, jungle, and zombies. In each section there is a story mode and a time trial or distance mode. My son finds running from zombies and the jungle the best. The running also incorporates jumping and pressing a button to knock over zombies ect. I thought this was a novel toy to get my son but he didn't want to get off for a while. My 2 year old was trying to run behind him and jump at the same time. The downside is that by the end of the second week my son doesn't want to keep doing the same ones. Expanded content or even a third party app would increase the longevity of this toy and increase the frequency of use.
Overall: Its a great toy that my kids love but one that will eventually completely lose its appeal as it doesn't take long to finish the content. I also bought this on sale for $50 and think it was completely work it at that price. 100 is a little steep for such little use.

love this! i have an overweight daughter
love this! i have an overweight daughter, (5lbs over weight) and thought this would be the perfect gift for my three kids. its really a great product so far. i love that the kids get to dress up their characters to look like them though i wish they did have more like features available. kids can earn coins to get additional sweaters, caps shirts, etc..... this really is a good product and i wish i could play lol im well over the weight limit for the product. the only reason i'm giving it four stars vs five is because there isn't any sound. i'm assuming this might be some thing wrong with the app. would be really awesome if they fixed that because in the app there is some controls for music and sound fx. other than that, this product is awesome and i can see it helping my daughter to lose the weight.

It's a wonderful alternative to allowing kids to sit on the couch
My son has an 2DayDeliver Fire tablet and this pairs perfectly with it. He would sit on the couch all day and play games if I let him. With this he has to constantly be running in place to play the game and he LOVES it. It will make him start working up a sweat and he will take a break and come back to it later. It's a wonderful alternative to allowing kids to sit on the couch.

No support offered
The idea is great but there is literally no support offered for the app. We’ve been having an issue with the app and I’ve emailed the company twice and absolutely no response. It’s very frustrating. It could be great but apparently they don’t seem to want to offer support after people buy it.

Sturdy and fun for kids!
Took a chance on this for Christmas and our kids love it! We have a 4 and 6 year old and they want to play it as soon as we get home. It has not lost it's appeal. Easy to put together yet sturdy and engages them. Definitely recommend. Allows them to be more "active" during the winter, inside. It's not the most elaborate game system involving movement but they really enjoy it and when we ordered it on a Lightning Deal it was a good price.

Get's them off the couch.
So far, so good. Wait for connection and it is better than being on the couch with just the ipad. It's fun watching him compete. It was simple to assemble and he couldn't wait to try it out. Grandson loves the sprint and high jump.

Fun and creative way to get your little one moving ...
Daughter loves this thing. Fun and creative way to get your little one moving while indoors. The game app can be a little glitchy here and there but nothing we couldn't work around. Overall I definitely recommend.

The app is poorly designed and needs more work.
I thought this would be a great thing to help my active boys get the wiggles out in the winter months. Unfortunately the app fails to load a good portion of the time, when it does load about half the time it will freeze up after the first race is done. The machine also fails to register the movements that my son makes, leading to a lot of frustration. I am very disappointed because on the rare occasion that it did work, they had a great time playing on it.

My 5 year old loves this. Only complaint is it should have more games.
