A to Z: Wii

Today's post is about the Wii, from Nintendo. My husband and I bought one used from a friend about a year ago and I love it. One of the games we got is the Wii Fit plus which I've been using on and off since last Memorial day (end of May for the non US folks). I particularly enjoy doing the yoga poses along with some of the strength training, balance games, and aerobics. They also have a Fit Plus category which has rhythm Kung fu. After a day in the office it is nice to come home and get in a half hour of exercise.

Mario cart for the Wii is also fun. I'll admit I get the music from the various race tracks stuck in my head. I usually race as Peach with her wild wing car.

What kinds of games (electronic or otherwise) do your characters enjoy? What sorts of games do you like. Heck, I have favorite board games I could blog about sometime.

Oh I love my Wii. The Yoga is nice to do on the Wii fit. I also really like Just Dance.

I haven't engaged my characters in these kinds of games, except for a boy child I wrote in one of my novels. I don't slow down long enough to relax that way either. Sounds like fun though.

I've never used a Wii--I don't do much gaming.

I hadn't considered games in relation to my characters before, but you make an interesting point! Hmmm. I'll have to think about that one.

We have a Wii, but rarely use it. I think for me it's the whole standing in front of a screen thing.

I'm touring around the A to Z, trying to visit some blogs I haven't made it to yet.

Best of luck with Y and Z.

We've had a Wii for about 18 months... bought it with the Fit Plus so we didn't have to buy gym memberships! We haven't tried any of the Mario games on it yet, and I want to get a dancing game to up the fun of doing aerobics!!

Good luck finishing out this week, the A to Z challenge has been a ton of fun.
