The NFL PLAY 60 app allows kids to get 60 minutes of physical activity each day through an interactive running experience that can be played on a smart phone or tablet. Players are immersed in an adventure where they are required to run, jump, pivot and turn in place in order for their character to do the same. Players choose an avatar and run through the virtual world where they encounter obstacles, which they avoid by physically moving their bodies. Smartphones and tablets measure this movement, and scoring is determined by duration of play and successful navigation of obstacles. Users collect digital coins as rewards that can be redeemed for digital swag in the form of outfits for the avatars, allowing them to dress their avatar in their favorite NFL team's clothing. Download the app.
