    We were thinking of getting the kids a Wii for Christmas. Does anyone here own one? What do you think of it? Do you use it much? Kids use it or did they get bored with it? Any game recommendations?

    I don't own one, but at the Halloween carnival, some of the locals set up a WII booth and my boy, who is a bouncing, jumping, running bundle of energy LOVED it.

    I'm thinking of getting one, too. Winter's here and it's too cold to send them outside to run off energy. At about this time of the year I start bundling them up and we start walking, because for weeks on end, it's the only outside exercise they get.

    My oldest won one at church. She plays it a couple of times a week. They're not too into it, but I think that is because of their ages and lack of good coordination yet.

    I don't care for it too much 'cuz I like games that are a bit more violent. lol.

    Once the kids get older though, I expect them to put the Wii through its paces.

    If you do you better make them do stretching exercises before they play. I torn my rotator cuff really bad playing bowling on the Wii. :lol:

    1.) Yes, I have a Wii.

    2.) It's a fun little thing, I'm sure kids would love it even more. It's fun to play if you got a game that you can use the hand thing with.

    3.) Nope, college. Haven't played it in a few months. :lol:

    4.) Kids play it but it has to be a good game.

    5.) Depends, what's the age?

    my kids play it a lot; not endlessly, but it doesn't gather much dust either. the sports package is fun (bowling, golf, ping pong etc)
