Wheeee!

Or rather, Wii!!!!!

I'm horrible, but the Wii (particularly Wii Fit) absolutely ROCKS! The kids and I have been playing for hours. I think it will do good during the summer when it is too hot to get out, and it will also help me get in a little bit of fitness in each day. We only have Wii Ski, Wii Sports and Wii Fit right now.

Any recommendations? I mostly want things that are ACTIVE, rather than just 'motion oriented'

Oh! I bet they would like Carnival Games. I'll have to look into that one. I'm trying to get the boys away from just 'hack and slash' games. All they want to play on their DS is Pokemon or Transformers.

Sometimes I miss the days of Blues Clues, Dora the Explorer and Bear in the Big Blue House.

We heart WiiFit too! I've done it everyday since its release. They're planning on coming out with more games for the balance board too (This is what the wiki says...). We also like MarioKart, but it's not ACTIVE...Dance Dance would be fun too.

The Wii Ski game is pretty neat. Feels close to real skiing if you could just have some rumbling under your feet. It's a lot to take in at once, though. You're on the balance board, plus the remote, plus the numchuck thing. It's like - lean this way, push that button with your left hand, this button with your right, turn the remotes inward while moving them up and down alternately. Geesh. *laugh*

The kids really liked setting up their Mii characters and playing some of the balance games and sports, so I hope it ends up being money well spent. We have a PS3 upstairs that rarely gets used.

Well, we all know my kids surely don't play the Wii and we think it's money well spent...LOL

I have Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii. It is SO MUCH FUN!! I can play for an hour without even realizing.. and by that time I am a sweaty mess.

There's a $20 game out there called Game Party - it's all bar games, like darts, quarters, and shuffleboard. More arm movement than you'd think. ;)

I must go buy this now. I need it. I shall have it tomorrow. We love our Wii, but the 360s been getting all the attention. Since Im using less traction I fiugre I could use the WiiFit and see how I do on my off days from PT.

Oh.. carnival, Mario Party is good.. And the game that comes with it is great too. Jack loves the boxing.
