Jake & the Wii
There are probably many videos like this of kids going nuts with the Wii, but this one is mine:
We have created a Wii junkie! Up until last Christmas, Carol and I have avoided the whole video game thing. We'd rather have the boys playing outside, hanging with friends, reading, drawing, etc. For many kids in the US, it's just hours upon hours of mindless video games. Kids - what am I talking about? Adults too. The other thing was so many of the video games were all about blood, guts or boobs. While I don't mind seeing that stuff on date night with Carol, I'm not ready for the boys to make it a daily event.
I am a big fan of the Wii though. The boys can actually work up a sweat on that thing. The characters are innocent looking and the games are just a lot of fun. I really don't understand the Wii boxing game though. I was a dang National Champion boxer in college for goodness sake and my five year old is whooping up on me on a consistent basis. He can kick my butt while he's sprawled out on the couch. It's amazing.
