Act Now and Save $50 on Nintendo Wii

Act now and get a Nintendo Wii console for only $199!  That’s a $50 savings!!

The Wii’s small size means it travels well… whether to Grandma’s house or the hotel. For the unexpected rainy days of your vacation, Wii is a great diversion that keeps kids moving. Even at home during winter, when the sun goes down so early, an occasional game of Wii can really get the blood pumping. The best part is even kids as young as 3 and 4 can do it! It truly is fun for the whole family.  (Click here to learn more about Nintendo Wii and what it comes with)

Two new games that are GREAT for even young kids are the Wii Sports Resort and Toy Story Mania!. In the new game Wii Sports Resort, my 4 yo loves the fencing games because he always wins. His Mii character fights like a Chihuahua on caffeine, but nobody can beat him!! It’s hysterical to watch, and super fun for him to play! We just got the Toy Story Mania! game and can’t wait to play! The Toy Story Mania! ride has the longest lines of any ride at both WDW and Disneyland! But it’s so fun, even when my son was 3 he waited in line for 90 minutes without complaining. The Wii game is his birthday present this weekend (he turns 5!!) and I can’t wait to see his face!

Personally, I’m a huge fan of the Wii Fit. I do yoga or strength training on my Wii Fit almost every day. I reward myself with some of the balance games that are just fun. My favorite is the soccer game, where they throw soccer balls, cleats, and panda toys at your head and you have to either return them or get out of the way! It’s hilarious whether you’re the player OR the spectator!  When we travel, I don’t bring the Wii Fit balance board, I just do the yoga poses from memory.  It really helps after a long day of exploring!

If you haven’t purchased a Wii yet, now’s the time to do it! Take advantage of the lower price and either get your holiday shopping done early or before the Thanksgiving trek to the family meal.
