As kids get into those tricky tween and teen ages, it can be a killer to get them to chill out with the family.
I’m getting a little scared already as Jackson gets closer to that age where his parents aren’t exactly ‘cool’.
So I take notice when a product hits shelves that can truly enhance family time and get everyone active. Tony Hawk Shred does exactly that. It’s simple enough for young kids to start learning to balance on a board and challenging enough for teenagers to battle each other for top scores.
Take a look at this video to see what I’m talking about…
Another aspect of this game that I like is that Tony Hawk is a good guy for kids to look up to. He got his first skateboard when he was nine and through determination and hard work by age 16 he was the best skateboarder in the world.
And now he’s giving back…
“With the creation of the Tony Hawk Foundation in 2002, Tony also has made an effort to give something back to the sport that has given him so much. Designed to promote and help finance public skateparks in low-income areas, the foundation has awarded more than $3.2-million in grants to build skateparks in 463 communities throughout the U.S.: from Sitka, Alaska to Marathon, Florida.”
So if you’re looking for a way to get active with your kids while it’s still cold and yucky outside, grab a copy of Tony Hawk Shred. You can get it for Xbox 360, PS3 or Wii.
Want to Win It?
Okay, so if you’d like to win a bundle with the game and board — compatible with Wii and Xbox — leave us a comment telling us if you ever skateboarded or snowboarded and if your kids do.
(Susan and I never skateboarded but Susan learned to snowboard in her 20′s. Jackson wants to start skateboarding this year and he snowboards.)
