How to cause interest in the child?

There are no special difficulties here. A child can be enticed simply by starting to dance himself. At this moment the competitive spirit will take its own and imperceptibly for itself the child will also join the game. Suggest inviting friends and playing together.

If this does not work, take the child with you to the store and let him choose the model he likes for himself.

Tips for choosing

First determine the material of the mat. The most economical option is a coating similar to an oilcloth, but it cannot boast of durability. Therefore, there are mats with reinforced rubber buttons. The most expensive ones are fully rubberized with embossed buttons, but they are also the safest ones - the child will not damage the foot, and such a dance trainer will last much longer.

The underside of the mat must have a non-slip coating and velcro for fixing.

The older the child, the denser the cover should be. For teens, it is better to choose a special platform.

Each pad has a different number of buttons. The most versatile - with 9 buttons. It is suitable for different ages and games. But if your child is still small, he is unlikely to appreciate such a pattern, then it is better to give preference to bright children's surfaces.

Further, there are difficulties with the setting, the buttons do not obey and all interest in the game disappears.

In dance programs, preference is given to where the rug itself and its buttons are shown on the screen, but with the character it is more difficult to dance, here the reaction speed and thoughts should be even faster.
