Have you seen the new Wii Bundle? It now comes with the Wii, a controller, Super Mario Kart, and the steering wheel! And it makes it even better that is has a lower price! It is now even more budget friendly at $149.99!
We had the original Wii and had it since it came out, sadly it stopped working but I was so excited when I was contacted by Nintendo to review their new Wii bundle package!
Nintendo was awesome and sent the bundle package and 2 Wii games, Wii Sports and Mario Super Sluggers. My kids loved these games! I had a blast playing Mario Kart with the kids, and since I am not personally a baseball fan but Tom is so I left playing Mario Super Sluggers up to him. The kids really enjoy playing these game together with us, as it is a great way to have family time. It is a great way for Tom to spend time with the kids, since he is the big gamer in our house and he is much better at teaching them about video games. Over the past few months the kids have really gotten into enjoying video games and enjoyed playing them on the PS3 and our old Wii and we were all sad when it stopped working so now that we have a Wii in the house we are all enjoying playing it! The kids have gotten a lot better at knowing how to control things in different games, I especially like the Wii’s controllers compared to the PS3 for the kids because it is so much easier for tiny hands.
Keeping things budget friendly Nintendo launched the new Nintendo Select collection of Wii games, which are priced at $19.99! I have seen many games, especially for Tom’s PS3 that are over $50 and for my kids being so young $50 is a lot of money to put out for a game for a 6 year old or 4 year old.
I went browsing through all the games Nintendo has out for the Wii, they have some really great ones and I now have a list of games that I want to get for my house.
- Reader Rabbit– I remember playing these games on the computer as a kid, I loved them so these would be great for my kids and would help them not lose everything that they learned this school year.
- Rockband, Sing it(Especially the Disney one) and Guitar Hero are on the top of my list for family fun nights! We all like to sing and dance and pretend we are rock stars (shhh don’t tell anyone my secret) when I have the music up when we are cleaning the house or just having fun. I think these would be a blast with my kids!
- active 2– I think this one is awesome because it has a built in personal trainer! There is no time for me to go to the gym or anything (even if I could find one around here) and I have the Wii Fit and Zumba for Wii which I enjoy both of them but the built in personal trainer sounds awesome because it is a more structured way to work out.
- Zelda(one of the Classic Select games)- I used to play this on my Nintendo Game Boy when I was a kid, this was my favorite game other then Tetras!
The Classic games for the Wii are bringing back games that I used to play on my Gameboy like Zelda, Kirby and Donkey Kong! I loved those games!
I don’t know if any of you have seen the Wii U that is coming out with in the next year but I am so excited about! It is so awesome looking and I love that it is a hand held that will be able to be used with or with out the Wii. I will be waiting for it to come out:)
Being that my kids are getting so into the Wii, I think it maybe time that I start talking to hubby about looking into getting the Nintendo DS or the 3DS for when we take long trips, especially now that it is summer and I know that we already have a few long day trips that we will be taking. Those would be awesome to keep the kiddos entertained. Do your kids have a DS or a 3DS? If so please share with me what your kids like about them and what you like about them and how old your kiddos were when they first started playing them.
And I can not forget about Netflix! While I was in Texas at Mommy Mae’s house I got to experience Netflix, and I am hooked (I will be ordering for our house in the next few weeks), I can stream in movies and TV shows that we all like to watch that Netflix has through the Wii! What an awesome way to save money!
