Stay Active with Electronic Sport Games

Boding with Family during the Winter Season
 
For decades, tabletop sports games were popular pastimes for kids and families when the winter months were too bitter cold for pond hockey or sledding. Nowadays, with the introduction and rise of video games, these classic favorites have stepped it up with improvements to electronic interactive features like scorekeeping and sounds effects. But the real appeal? They promote family bonding and get kids off the couch – without having to bundle up.
 
From golf to hockey to kickboxing, indoor games continue to be huge sellers, especially near the winter holidays. “These games cover any traditional sport you can think of, including hunting and fishing” says Justin Sigler of EastPoint Sports. “Fitness is a major concern to a lot of parents, and these games provide more activity for young kids. They’re new and improved versions of the games I grew up with; they’re family-oriented and healthy.”
 
As a result of improvements in the availability and quality of technology, newer models are a far cry from the old school pop-a-shot, hang-on-the-door sports games. For example, the Majiktm Multi-Player Wireless Basketball set features two hoops with transmitters that send the score to a wireless LED scoreboard, which then responds with real stadium sound effects. The hoops and scoreboard can be hung up anywhere in the house or garage for a full-court indoor pickup game. Each year basketball games take the #1 spot in terms of popularity.
 
“Hunting and fishing games also prove to be very popular at Dunham’s,” Justin points out. Games like the Majiktm Accurate Aim Archery Trainer offer multiple game modes like Trophy Hunt and Bag Limit, with different objectives and ways to earn points. An electronic scoring device also projects animal calls to indicate what to aim for while you’re on the hunt. No matter what your favorite sport is, all models at Dunham’s sit in the $30-40 price range, making them an affordable choice that will keep the whole family moving.
 
If you really want to get the kids sweating as the snow piles up outside, boxing and kickboxing games have come a long way since the old inflatable punching bags wrapped in the violence-inducing visage of Bozo the clown. Games like the Majiktm Stick and Move Kickboxing Trainer allows kids to choose between boxing, kickboxing, or kicking modes. Six interactive light-up pressure-sensors indicate your target and record hits and misses. The electronic scoreboard records overall performance and can even rank the user’s skill level. Millions of homes around the country use these games for some competitive family time and prevent couch-lock during the winter’s coldest months.
