Change4Life has teamed up with superhero Sportacus from popular children’s TV show LazyTown to encourage young children aged between two and five to be more active and eat healthier food.

Eating well and being active can help prevent kids developing serious illnesses later in life. Guidelines show that once they can walk they should be physically active for at least three hours a day.

Wake Up LazyTown
Our game, developed with our partners at LazyTown, is perfect for kids aged two to five. Sportacus and his LazyTown friends really enjoy being active – it makes them feel great!
In this game, Robbie Rotten has concocted an evil plan and cast a spell on LazyTown, making everyone fall into a deep sleep. Kids need to go to LazyTown and do some special activities to break the spell and wake everyone up without Robbie Rotten knowing they're there. Then they’ll step aboard Sportacus’s AirShip and return home as Games4Life heroes.
Blast Off with LazyTown
Blast Off is a board game for pre-school children. When they complete all the challenges on the board they can join Sportacus in his airship for a tour of LazyTown. There's a range of activities from running on the spot to Sportacus' own "signature moves" so children of all abilities can join in the fun.
Take the LazyTown Challenge
The LazyTown Challenge is another great activity for young children and encourages them to eat more healthily. It includes a booklet of fun ideas for activities and healthy recipes. The wallchart helps children track progress towards being as active and healthy as Sportacus.
