What’s It Like? Kids meet a friendly monster, Ragnar, who is suffering from a cardiovascular problem. Kids help Ragnar by completing a series of diagnostic tests to figure out what is causing the problem. They use a map to move from various places like a fitness center and a hospital, while earning achievements and awards for collecting medical items and completing tasks.
Pros: Real-world health simulations and fun arcade games teach kids about the importance of heart-healthy living.
Cons: Kids have to do a lot of reading, which could present a challenge for some less-strong readers.
Bottom line: Fun, engaging adventure teaches kids about the cardiovascular system, medical diagnostics, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
