(WVLT) - Climbing ropes, stationary bicycles and electronic dancing games could join the menu of play options for children at McDonald's.

The burger-and-fries company, often accused by critics of contributing to child obesity, is thinking of replacing those ball pits and craw tubes with mini-gyms, called R-Gyms.

McDonald's says the R-Gym is intended to provide a fun, easy way for children to increase their physical activity.
