Just when you thought cycling couldn’t get any weirder… children’s toy specialists Fisher-Price revealed their brand new ‘Think and Learn Smart Cycle.’ But bear with us, it’s not about sweating it out to The Sufferfest – it’s actually rather educational. 

The toy can be linked up to educational games that are downloaded from the App Store and Google Play – these can be viewed via a tablet placed on the handlebars, or on the TV thanks to Bluetooth linking.

Fisher-Price say the idea came about after they realised that children learn better when they’re being active. The games on the app can respond to the child’s pedalling pace and can even pause should they stop altogether.

The toy is suitable for three to six year olds, and can be hooked up to a parent’s smartphone, allowing them to track their child’s pedalling.

Adding the educational games via the app will cost $4.99 a go, and the initial trainer will be $150 – with an included app which features age-based mathematics, social and science studies. UK pricing is still TBC.

The bike is designed to be adjustable to suit growing bodies, and was first unveiled at the global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow, CES 2017, currently taking place in Las Vegas. It’ll be compatible with Android and iOS devices and will launch in the Autumn of 2017.

Here it is in action…
