Virtual bike vs. childhood obesity

Richard Simmons likes it--what more do you need to know?

We were feeling a tad guilty for pointing out a special remote for kids yesterday. So to do our part in promoting physical fitness among our youth, today we're offering this bike simulator so kids can get in some stationary cycling while playing their video games.

Why, you might ask, wouldn't parents tell their kids to take real bikes outside and ride them? Because that wouldn't be very virtual now, would it? Duh.

The Raw Feed notes that Fisher-Price has hired ancient fitness guru Richard Simmons to help promote the "Smart Cycle," but we'll refrain from commenting on that stroke of marketing genius here. (Too easy.)
