Fisher-Price made an exercise bike with a tablet holder — for 3-year-olds

Their goal is to combat childhood obesity.

Toy company Fisher-Price has announced an exercise bike for children that comes complete with a tablet-holder:

The bike is intended to combat childhood obesity by getting kids moving when all they'd really like to be doing is poking at a touch-screen, Gizmodo reports.

The Think & Learn Smart Cycle lets kids control four downloadable games with the speed of their pedaling on the bike, essentially making the entire contraption a video-game controller you can sit on. The bike can also be plopped in front of a smart TV for a more "immersive experience," Gizmodo writes. Unfortunately for grown-ups who want an adult-sized version of the Smart Cycle, the gadget is built for children ages 3 to 6.

The Think & Learn Smart Cycle will cost parents $150, which is considerably more expensive than walking 15 miles to school uphill both ways in the snow, like they did back in the day.
