As a physical education consultant and adjunct professor, I have spent over 15 years modifying games when space is limited or weather is not ideal for teaching. Flip2BFit and Bakari are two amazing resources that I feel every physical educator would benefit from. Classroom teachers have stated that they would like more resources and tools to increase physical activity in their academic lessons (Stanec and Murray-Orr, 2011). Well, they don’t have to look anymore! Both Flip2BFit and Bakari meet many standards in both physical education, health, and literacy throughout North America. Many connections to mathematics can be made by modifying ways to keep track of repetitions, sets, and score. The games foster a motivating environment for students to foster 21st century learning skills while increasing their physical activity and fitness levels. It’s also wonderful how the game brings people together – to laugh, support one another, and collaborate – in a day where so often we are all tied to our individual mobile devices. I give these games an enthusiastic two thumbs up!

Flip2BFit and Bakari were invaluable assets for our campers and counselors at this summer. Whether is was for a rainy day activity, during arrival and dismissal, or for an entire activity period these games got our campers up and moving in a way that was fun and educational! We absolutely LOVED the healthy eating tips that went along with the game play. All together it was a great program that we look forward to using summer after summer! It was so successful this summer that we actually implemented it into our after school programs this year as well! Thanks for making these great products that are enjoyed by kids and grown-ups alike!

“Flip 2 B Fit” provides the ultimate for children and adults alike regarding fitness. What I really love about it is the fact that it brings in all areas of fitness learning. While it is a game, it’s also a learning tool. As the author of Mind Your Own Fitness: How to Successfully Get Fit Using This Mental Toolbox and a fitness professional, I can attest that the mindset of fitness is important. And this game helps to provide just that!

Flip2BFit is a great way to get the kids up and moving without begging. They love to play it and we do too! Anything we can do as a family is a bonus for us. We are very busy and this fits right into our schedules. As homeschoolers this counts toward Physical Education and we LOVE that.
“I am a Psychologist who just discovered a great game for kids. The uniqueness of FLIP2BFIT is that is sneaks in exercise and literacy while it creates an atmosphere of fun and laughter! I played this game at Halloween with our neighbors and we couldn’t stop laughing. “

Flip2BFit is a great family game, lots of interaction between siblings and parents using physical and intellectual
skills. I am glad and encourage seeing more games of this type on the Market!
Have a great holiday and best of luck with your company, the potential is endless.

My boys love Bakari. They want to play every day. Given that they are only 3 & 4 we don’t play by the rules. Instead we take turns turning over one card at a time and leaving it face up. Once a match is identified we all do the exercise. It’s great, because Micah, my youngest, is generally more sedentary and not too interested in anything active. With Bakari he is really into doing the activities.

“I absolutely would recommend this game. It is different, engaging, interactive, and just all around fun, unlike other board games where it is basically the same things just different characters–spin and move, spin and move.”

“Hi! We liked the game. Patrick and
I both agreed that a bigger group would be a lot more fun. I could see schools really enjoying and using it in a classroom or PE class. I will bring mine to school for sure and my PE teacher said he’d try it in his room.
Hannah said, “I like this game. You get to MOOOVE!!”
It held her interest because she didn’t have to sit and wait. The group plays were great because she got to move more than just on her turn.”

“The last time we played the game in our school the children LOVED it so much we realized we needed to incorporate this as our standard for all PE Classes. The game is so rich in exercises its AMAZING!!!! Its far better than anything else we have ever used for teaching sport.”

“We used both games with a small group of girls to trial it. Initial thoughts were positive. They enjoyed a different activity and were engaged throughout. We will now be using with our Girls Clubs when we return from the Easter Holidays!”

“The game is a perfect way to introduce innovative ideas for our teachers to incorporate exercise in the classes, We think Flip2BFit should be in ALL CLASSROOMS!”

@Flip2BFit “What a GREAT way to get the whole family involved by incorporating stretching, yoga, cardio, and strength in a fun activity ! I love it!”
Tiffany Rolfing, South Dakota
“I received the game and we opened it up and played this morning. My girls loved it! Immediately I thought that this game should be in every elementary class room. I hate on rainy or cold winter days when my girls come home and tell me that they had indoor recess which usually involves drawing or talking with friends. Kids should be moving every day! This is an easy way for the classroom teacher to deliver some
Physical Education time on non Physical Education days.”
