Here are some fun facts about bear cubs from the North American Bear Center…
Scientists have suggested that young animals might play to:
-stimulate development of the brain
-increase cardiovascular fitness
-”burn off” excess energy
-practice fighting, mating, or hunting skills animals will need as adults
-help learn to recognize kin, evaluate risk, or cope with stressful situations
-provide a safe way for young animals to test their abilities, the abilities of -playmates, and the degree of cooperation/competition with them
-help strengthen social bonds, reduce aggression, enhance alliances, increase tolerance, and improve group cohesion
-release endorphins and other “feel good” chemicals.

The Biking Game by Schwinn was created to inspire families and bike enthusiasts to get outside and enjoy one of America’s greatest recreational activities together. The game is designed to grow with the player, starting at level one questions, which are primarily identification of basic bike parts and riding etiquette. As the players increase in their knowledge about biking culture they grow into the higher level questions. A fun & educational game where parents & children can race to see who can get their bike through multiple terrain and back home first. All while sharing favorite biking memories and creating new ones!
