LOL you do have to be careful. I always fuss at my children about not getting carried away, and I'm the one who ended up nearly breaking the ceiling fan while we were playing tennis. We have to keep the dogs and cats out of the room when we play too, for their own protection.

So - those of you who have it, where did you buy it? I've gone thru 2 Christmases & 1 birthday trying to get one for my husband, & every place I try is always out of them & can't guarantee when they'll be getting more. I can see Xmas, but an April birthday?? And the problem with shopping too early is that many stores have a limited return time - even if the electronic item turns out to be defective.

But I guess I should start shopping now for hubby's April 5th big day. . . . I just don't know where to start, techno idiot that I am.

My parents just went out and picked it up today. I have no idea where though. I was passing by the game store in the mall (I think it is called Game Stop) and they had a sign outside saying they have the Wii in stock.

I played the wii for the first time over Thanksgiving at our family reunion. I havn't been that sore for a loonng time!

And yeah, I sucked at the Boxing too, but I rock at Tennis!

The residents at the nursing home I work at usually play it about once a week.

Do you have a Blockbuster video rental place in the US? They always have them in stock it seems. Otherwise, WalMart or Toys R Us.

The only thing I've done on a Wii is handbells on the Wii Music game. My whole family has played actual bells at some point so we had a good laugh playing the Wii version! The guys have had fun with it since you can get 4 of them playing at once.

I actually rock pretty hard at baseball. Once I figured out the pitches and the timing I can't be beat! My arm ached so much after my first marathon session at my sisters!

And this summer, I made the hula hoop record (over 1000 reps!) and my belly and legs were sooooo sore!

When we got ours it came from GameStop. I had to call eveyday to see if they were in stock, and when they finally were I had to drop what I was doing and rush right over. I was at work, and I remember nearly running over my boss when I got the word they were in stock. They still sell out as quickly as they come in.
