    We are FINALLY owners of a Wii gamesystem. Thanks to my daughters BFF’s parents who were at the right place at the right time today and picked it up for us!

    Of course I was immediately dreaming of a personal trainer game, and guess what? THEY’VE MADE ONE! Wii Fit – with a gazillion fitness activities, including huuuuuuuuuula hoops! Rock on!

    Totally getting this….

    Do you Wii? Any games you highly recommend? Accessories?

    Congratulations! I’ve had mine since Christmas ’06. I reserved Wii Fit today at Gamestop. I also recommend Wii Play because the games are simple, fun, and you get a free Wii Remote. Smash Bros is a good fighting game for four people. Endless Ocean is wonderfully surrealistic and relaxing (plus, it’s only $30).

    That’s pretty cool. First we talk on phones seemingly without a phone and now we can hula hoop without a hoop. Too bad those blue people can’t do the exercise for us :rofl:
    Wii’s a perfect product for the times we live in. Joking aside, it is a perfect product for our times. :yes:

    Celticbuffy – I am going to have to find a place to get on a waiting list or pre-order. I gotta have it.

    June – it’s amazing what intelligent people can do in a small room with a bunch of plastic and electronic gizmos, isn’t it?

    I am really grateful for this – we’ve stayed away from game systems because of the lazy boob tube factor, so to finally have something that encourages action and movement is PERFECT and exactly what we need!

    My kids like Mario Galaxy. I like the bowling and the golf – I’m going to have to get Wii fit. That sounds fun! #1 likes smash brothers and I picked up the gun thing that comes with Zelda for $20 — Haven’t used it, but a friend has it and loves it.

    I did check JCPennys. No luck there either! I also checked a place that sells luggage! This is so discouraging!

    That Wii looks very fun, but I don’t know if I can talk DH into it. :(

    We’ve been Wii shopping since they came out – so, it’s been a couple of years in the “want” mode! Sometimes good things are worth the wait.

    Wow, Nikki – now that’s sacrifice. It will come back around, though, I’m sure of it!

    Lisa – We’ve been looking for 2 years – your best bet is to ask all your friends to look, too! You just never know when you, or someone you know, will be at the right place at the right time.
