active life explorer game

About the Game:

~Active Life Explorer™ is a great new video game adventure for Wii™ where you can run, jump and slide your way through 24 exotic locations in search of treasure. Play alone, with a friend, or let the whole family join in the fun.

~Play with the Wii™ remote or Active Life Mat Controller to step up the action.

~Recommended for ages 6 and older, this game tests skills and enhances endurance, and makes a great gift for the holidays! Available in stores now!(Released in October 2010)

At ChiquitaBananas.com you can test your explorer skills in the exciting Gem Catcher Game and also watch the game trailer preview video.

You will want to try out this game. It's a blast!! You can spend many hours playing this game alone or with family or friends. We were lucky enough to receive this game for review and my nine year old son hasn't stopped playing it. He loves this game. It's good exercise and alot of fun. It's kind of like, a cartoon version of "Indiana Jones" with each game a new adventure. You can even dress in costumes for each new game. The best part is that you can actually run and jump on the Active Life Mat Controller (unlike the balance board) or you can use the wii remote. There are 24 games in this one disk and each game was well designed with all the drama and excitement of the adventure. Playing this game is a great way to get exercise and it's so much fun that you don't even realize how active you are.

This game sells for $59.99 in most stores and online.
Great News!! One of my lucky readers can win the new Active Life Explorer Wii Game wi

th the Active Life Mat Controller.

I learned that bananas contain 15% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, which helps your body heal, absorb iron and synthesize connective tissue and blood formation

It's a great site. It's ccolorful and chock full of information from recipes to the calorie count of a 126g banana.

I learned that bananas do include tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your body produce serotonin, a natural substance that has a calming effect on the brain and can act as a gentle sedative.
