The Think & Learn Smart Cycle from Fisher-Price is a stationary bike that hooks up to a tablet via Bluetooth for preschoolers to play different learning games. Adult assembly is required. First step is to download the free Smart Cycle Mission to Tech City app to a tablet. The Smart Cycle app can also be launched on your TV with a media streaming box if you prefer. Then turn the Smart Cycle on to make sure it's connected. The app has different games, which work along with the bike's movable, steering handlebars, input controls, and joystick putting kids in control the entire time. They can choose one of three destinations, Tech City, Seaside Village, or Mountain Forest, as well as which games to play each time. The games focus on skills preschoolers will need as they head into kindergarten. There are games about Letters & Phonics, Spelling & Vocabulary, and Reading & Rhyming. 15 different levels of play allow kids to advance, as the Smart Cycle automatically adjusts content as your child learns. In addition to learning, this toy also keeps them active because the faster they pedal, the faster the on-screen action. The bike has a 75 lb. weight limit, and an adjustable seat. It also features an adjustable tablet holder to fit tablets of various sizes. Additional Smart Cycle apps, featuring characters from some Nickelodeon shows, are also available for even more learning fun.
