I am all for finding new and exciting ways
to encourage my boys to get active. They
do swimming at the moment but most other activities have fallen by the wayside

children eager to play! They would love
the novelty as it’s something we have never seen before and would be a talking
point at school for a long time afterwards. I am so glad I have stumbled upon the game.
