Has anyone on minimins tried the exercise dance mat that runs from the TV without the use of a gaming system? I'm quite interested in the one Argos does for £9.99. My dancing skills are somewhere around nil but it could be interesting. Please post if you have tried it.

I haven't tried the one that goes directly into the TV but I have one for my play station. I'd imagine they are pretty much the same which means good fun! One tip though, shut the curtains first!

Yep - I think that goes without saying Taz - although I could charge and make money at the same time - hmm...............

Not enough floor space at the moment but on one at the moment - sorting things out and moving things around x

That's what I'm supposed to be doing as we are having the flat valued this afternoon but I have nowhere to put the stuff that is cluttering the place up, hence the reason for the valuation - we need a bigger place!

I think if I just get a cheap one it might be worth it to try. The teenage grils at school enjoy it - maybe there's a warning there somewhere.............

I too have the one for the playstation and I think it's good fun. I ain't been on it for ages but would like to give it a go again (I think it's up in the loft though)

The only thing that annoys me is that my mat has a tendency to move across the floor as I'm dancing so I miss steps and fail the song. The other thing is the songs can get a bit boring after a while.

Well I've bought it. It takes 4 AA batteries and I thought I had them but all I have is loads of AAA ones. It seems that it plugs in like a camcorder would to the tele and the mat itself is powered by batteries. No softwear is involved just the mat and a scart adapter if needed. It all looks straightforward so we'll see tomorrow when I get the batteries x

OK We Have Dance Off

OK Guys - Dance mat up and running so here's the low-down.

I bought the Dance Master aimed at anyone aged 3 + I thought I might meet the requirements. It was £9.99 from Argos.

It didn't take up too much space on the floor so I was able to use it even though I haven't finished my sorting out yet.

I put the batteries in and plugged the mat into the tele then I switched to AV - amazingly it fired up right away.

It made elctronic noises which might have been music and displayed some options on the tele which I had to select with my feet on the mat. There was dance (with 10 tune choices), pinball and knock-out - I tried them all.

It took a little getting used to and was a little slippy but I did kinda get the general idea and will play again.

Conclusions - It was fun and got my heart rate up so I probably burned off a few calories. Excellent value for a tenner.

Score - Uh No... I don't think so - I'm not gonna embarass myself that much x
