FitKid teams up with Drumond Park




                                       
                                           
"Get up and move about!" was my parenting mantra, I loved to see my children outdoors or on colder days inside doing an activity, rather than sitting in front of the box, be it Xbox or TV box!!

I am therefore happy that a games company have teamed with a kids fitness provider to encourage children to get more active.

Drumond Park are well known for their board games and also have a good range of games to get children moving.

FitKid, the nationwide fun fitness provider for children, has teamed up with Drumond Park, the UK’s leading independent games company, to encourage more children to get active whilst having fun. FitKid will be utilising a number of Drumond Park's highly popular action games within its classes, workshops and parties, enabling children to learn additional exciting and stimulating ways to play with the games supplied by the company.  Parents will also have the opportunity to book a FitKid party and receive a free copy of Drumond Park’s new Pumpazing action game (rrp £19.99, age 3+).   

The latest Health Survey for England (HSE) data has predicted that 25% of children will be obese by 2050. To combat this worrying statistic, FitKid aims to provide children with fun fitness activities to help improve their health and encourage them to make healthy lifestyle choices. Using fun play equipment including balls, bean bags, hoops, spacehoppers and a parachute, FitKid engages the children in multi skilled sessions that assist with developing the key skills for sport in addition to providing children with health benefits.



Nicky Kay, Managing Director, FitKid commented: “It’s great to have teamed up with Drumond Park, and during trials I have been very impressed with the quality and scope of the games available, especially Pumpazing and Pumpaloons, which our four to seven-year-olds already absolutely love!”   

Claire McCool, co-founder and Marketing Director at Drumond Park said:  “We are really pleased with this link-up with the FitKid organisation.  It’s truly a great ‘fit’ for us – as our action toy range has long promoted healthy competition and active play in a fun environment. The team at FitKid have already cleverly integrated a range of exercise and physical activities involving both the new pass-the-parcel style pumping game Pumpazing and our popular Pumpaloons game (where children take race to puff up the two lovable, colourful, clown-like wobblies – Stripeyloon and Spottyloon)  into their class and workshop scenarios, with outstanding results.”

New Pumpazing (rrp £19.99, age 3+)
Pumpaloons (rrp £19.99, age 4+)
