My children have a Wii. We all love it. We play tennis and bowling and golf. It is cool that we can all four play at the same time. There are so many different kinds of games that there's definately something for everyone. It's almost impossible to find something that three teenagers can agree on LOL, but they all love the Wii. I have a skiing game that's pretty cool (I'm not good at it yet though). One of my daughters has a fishing game that she loves, and my son is into all these Japanese games. There is something for everyone. I think I'll go play some tonight when I get off work. It's a great way to relax.

ok so you first start out able to do lets say 4 yoga poses, 4 strength excerises, 3 balance and 3 areobic.

and you get better at those you unlock others then eventually there is 1 where there are noises from the wiiremote telling you want to do in the step areobics, run, etc...

Mario Kart rocks. If you liked playing the one for SNES, the Wii version is like that one on steroids.

I bought my grandson a Wii for Christmas a year ago and we had a lot of fun with it. It came with 4 games, bowling, baseball and two others and we found it addictive. This year I got him the Guitar Hero with several instruments. THAT one is hilarious and more fun than you can imagine. The technology behind it is mind boggling. My daugher ( his mother) added the Wii Fit but I've never seen that one. She loves it.

I got a Wii for Christmas this year and it is a riot, especially when the grandkids are here. We have the sports: baseball, tennis, bowling and boxing. Dh also got me the Iron Chef and Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader. They are all alot of fun! He's supposed to be getting me the Fit which I did ask for.
We have 2 controllers, 2 numchucks (for boxing) and the charging station.
Hope you enjoy it!

GB, you are going to absolutely LOVE the Wii. The Wii Fit rocks too. There are tons of different games and things on there and you can use it as a "personal trainer" too if you like. There are strength, balance, aerobic and yoga things on the fit. You can also get other games that utilize the Fit board.

The games that come with the Wii are a blast too. The baseball, bowling, tennis and golf are awesome, but I completely suck at the boxing. Madeleine (who's birthday is also tomorrow) creams me every time I try it out.

If you are looking for serious party fun look into the Guitar Hero world tour for Wii and get the drums, bass, guitar and microphone. Its a party all on its own. A bit $$$ though.

Just be careful!! We were playing tennis one time (myself, son, 2 cousins) and I went to swing and socked my son in the back of the head. I hit him pretty hard and we had to take a break for a little. Good thing he is tough, if it was one of the cousins we wouldnt have been playing again that night.
