The Nintento Wii: Our New Toy

Yesterday, Daddy and I were supposed to buy a DVD player, so we can watch movies at home. But well, as fickle-minded as he was, Daddy changed his mind and chose to get a new toy instead.

At first, he wanted the Sony Playstation 3. Actually, he's been asking me for this since last year. But after he tried the tennis game included in Wii Sports, he again changed his mind and decided to get the Nintendo Wii. Of course, I won't allow him to make that big purchase without trying it myself. So, I tried it, and guess what? In an instant, I fell in love with the Wii.


The Nintendo Wii is one of the hottest gaming consoles in the world today. I've learned about this way back in 2007 but it never really caught my interest until I saw it being featured in Umagang Kay Ganda, a local morning show here in the Philippines. The show featured it as the latest exercising tool today. Without going to the gym or doing extraneous workouts, this Wii allows everyone to exercise at the comfort of their homes. Exactly what Daddy and I needed.


So, without thinking twice, I got the Wii not just for Daddy but also for me. Once we arrived home, Daddy immediately assembled it and I started playing tennis. And oh boy, I was really sweating! It will sure be a big help since my work confines me at my desk for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Daddy will be needing it as well, since his vacation will last until March.

Daddy and I so love our new toy. As early as now, we're having so much fun playing the Wii Sports like boxing and tennis. We plan to get more Wii games and Wii accessories like the Wii Fit to further explore the Wii experience.
