Wii gets fit

Ahhh, summertime. That time when you should allow your kids to rest, yet enrich their minds. OR if you live with me, a time to stay up late, eat junk food and play games when we are not out in the sun and fun. (Seeing as there has been very little sun, we are doing a lot more inside “fun” here.) And what is the power game of choice? Wii! (And, no, I do not work for them, am not being paid by them and am gaining nothing by telling you how much I enjoy the Wii we have. Just in case someone decides they want to get all up in my grill about it. I’m just saying, I like it. Mikey likey!)

Here is the Queen of Our Wii holding court.

I have to admit, there are times I kick the kids off to play myself. I have fun with the Wii Sports and the Wii Play. In fact, here are some pictures of the whole family playing at the beach when it was either raining or everyone was too sunburned to go back out into the blazing Florida sun. Do you Wii? What is your favorite game?

I am just going to link to the WiiFit in action. I TRIED to embed it, but it keeps screwing up my template. Hello? WordPress? Not making me happy. Anyway, here is the link: Wii Fit at E3.

I think I am in love with a new game coming out soon. I learned about it from E3 and found this video of it from the conference at Gametrailers. I am so going to get my hands on this one: Wii Fit. Check out that yoga, baby. Now that will be worth all of the YouTube payback videos that my sons post of me. Because trust me when I say both of my boys will love getting even that way. Take a look for yourself and tell me what you think. I think it is going to be a lot of Fit Fun!

  1. Ok, never been a video gamer, but you had me at yoga!!! I want one and I am scared…What’s a mom to do???

  2. We want a Wii. We have several gift cards to an electronics superstore… that NEVER has them in stock. UGH! Every week we call hoping, but nada. So, we’re still waiting.

  3. Working girl…cheaper than home gyms or BowFlex. 🙂

    As for isolating, look at it more like a way for those who want to work out at home a chance to do so. Off the couch and having a fun work out rather than on the couch doing something like say… Mario Bros of the late 80’s. *smile*

  4. We have a Wii and it’s super fun! So far, I mostly like Wii sports, but I’m hoping my husband will buy Paper Mario soon.

  5. This is a joke, right? No? Oh, sorry. It just seems like an expensive way to isolate yourself from others. But, I suppose that if you are already isolated, then it is a good choice for virtual fitness.

    This is coming from someone who was totally addicted to Super Mario Bros in the late 80s…

  6. I love this. I’ve been opposed to getting a Wii, but now I’m thinking it might be something I would enjoy as well as the kiddos.

  7. You’re lucky. I want a Wii so bad! And that new Wii Fit looks awesome. Of course, it would probably be much like the Game Cube, I never get to use it.
