Go Noodle has a variety of wellbeing and exercise activities including Yoga and Meditation as well as off-screen activities to get the kids dancing and moving. All of these are made to release that extra energy, as Diana Projansky, Head of Consumer Gaming, explains, “We’ve worked hard to ensure that the games use movements that are safe for kids’ growing bodies but still provide plenty of exercise. Kids should be panting by the time they’re done playing; these games are designed to tire kids out!”
