It is a well known fact that we humans learn through play, and the Smart Cycle from Fisher Price follows that school of thought. This stationary bike is actually a learning center and an arcade game system all rolled into a singe device. Hook it up to your TV to let your little ones get started straight away. When they start to pedal, different characters will pop up to help them pick up new discoveries, games, and even engage them in races. A quartet of D batteries are required so you might have to use rechargeables for the more economic route. Some of the categories taught include upper and lowercase letters, numbers and counting, spelling, problem-solving, shapes, matching, creativity, motor skills and more. The Smart Cycle can be picked up for a single Benjamin.
