Common Sense Media shares ZisBoomBah.com’s believe that staying healthy and fit is the foundation for a happy, long life for any child. That’s why the CSM leadership team chose ZisBoomBah as the only website in the Healthy Lifestyle and Fitness category to “help kids get started early as they get inspired to move their body in new ways and celebrate a rainbow of vegetables.” The other two picks are both XBox 360 Kinect games. ZisBoomBah.com is a start-up that CSM has rated higher than Disney, PBS, Kids Health, Playnormous and Nourish Interactive.
ZisBoomBah is also chosen for kids who are challenged by organization and routines. Common Sense Media picked ZisBoomBah as a website to help kids to understand and predict what will happen next, get ready for it and remember the steps. “Creating healthy, balanced eating habits can be hard for kids who have trouble with change. Now they can get feedback on eating the right mix of foods to make balanced meals.” The other picks included Leapfrog.
“At ZisBoomBah.com, we strive to create games that kids will love, and parents can feel good about,” said Karen Laszlo, founder. “We’re honored to receive this high rating from Common Sense Media, and we will continue to work to produce the highest quality website for kids, parents, teachers and groups that we can. We are currently working with the Girl Scouts of Colorado and the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta to help their girls learn about healthy living both online and offline! The girls can also earn badges and fun patches by using the quests designed specifically for them.”
“Our learning ratings are the most comprehensive tool parents have to surface the digital media products that are truly educational from those that simply claim to be,” said Seeta Pai, architect of the Common Sense Media learning ratings initiative. “We congratulate ZisBoomBah.com for receiving a high learning rating, and for creating a terrific website that helps kids learn about healthy living and have fun, too.”
