Play for Life – Games
Micro Scooters commissioned research with Brytespark a team of experts in biomechanics, child development, fitness training, podiatry, physiotherapy and athletics, who combined their knowledge with expert opinion from around the world. The research found that it’s not just free, cardiovascular exercise that matters during the pre-school years. For children to confidently develop their fundamental movement skills, physical play should be structured, with adult involvement. And, it’s the type and variety of movement a child is exposed to, that makes all the difference at this critical stage of development, if the child is going to secure a life time of good habits.
We know that many adults will be intimidated by a target of 180 minutes physical exercise per day with a child under 5. That’s why our Play for Life campaign delivers the science behind the ‘fundamental movement skills’ theories, in a palatable way and provides useful advice and games ideas for guided-play that are aligned to our product range and appropriate for the child’s stage of development.
