I’m sure most of you guys have heard of the Nintendo Wii by now. But, before Christmas rolled around, I had never even seen the Wii and had no desire to play one. (Not a big video gamer.) I had heard all about it though. How you can create characters (Miis) to resemble yourself and play games like bowling and golf and tennis… all with a remote. You’ve seen the commercials, with everyone looking silly in front of their TV, punching at invisible objects. (That’s the boxing game, by the way.)
Then, for Christmas, my sister got one, my best friend got one and my aunt won one at her Christmas Party. Everywhere I went, I was surrounded by cartoon versions of my friends and family bowling and playing tennis. All of the sudden, I had to have one. So, a few days and five stores later, I too was the proud owner of a shiny white box of fun.
And it is fun! On New Year’s Eve, we bowled for almost eight hours straight. We couldn’t stop. I’m sure there’s a bunch of you that know exactly what I’m talking about. And for the record, my niece rocks at bowling. She has a high score of 254 and she’s only seven. I’m… well…I’m not seven, but I can’t beat her for the life of me. (She likes to remind me of it, too.)
Anyway, we’ve had such a great time playing this thing, that I wanted to spread the fun. So here’s a little giveaway with a big prize.
Includes the Wii console, Wii remote, Nunchuk controller, disk of sports games and wires and stuff.
Keep reading to see how you could win it.
Here are a bunch of Miis I made on the Wii for this giveaway.
And, here are a bunch of Mii cupcakes.
All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is…
Pick Mii Out and Wii-n Giveaway:
- To enter for a chance to win a Wii, just pick mii out.
- Guess the letter above that corresponds to the Mii character you think I use and leave your choice in your comments section below. Choose only one.
- Make sure to leave a way for me to contact you (by blog or email) if you win.
- Deadline to enter is Saturday, January 24, 2009 at midnight.
- Winner will be announced sometime Sunday, January 25th.
Note: The winner will be chosen at random using the random.org integer generator. To win, you must pick Mii out correctly. If the winning comment does not pick Mii out correctly, I’ll choose another comment at random until one does.
Have fun and good luck!

Wii Fit (Curious… does anyone recommend this?)
Also, the cupcakes I made were from the February 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine… (a Christmas gift subscription from my mom.) I used the one bowl chocolate cupcake recipe… super easy and yummy. Thanks Mom and Martha!
I think you are C!
And yes, the Wii Fit is SO fun! The board is great. There’s an aerobics game that’s really good, and lots of other games that even my 3 yr old could play. Using the board was much more natural for him than the hand controllers.
I don’t have a set yet, so I’m really hoping to win this! Yay!
If you can find the wii fit – get it!
I think your mii is C (if it’s not her then it’s G but C is my final answer)
Oh, it must be D! I hope I win! I love the Wii.
