I have heard wonderful things about it. I am wondering if you have to be able to stand to use it. My husband is wanting one (well dreaming) but he cannot use the floor pad. Does it do other things that he could do form his wheelchair?

the Wii fit pretty much is used with the pad.! BUT most of the games that i play with my daughter (shes 6 ) is used with other handheld controlers an i think it would be perfect for someone in a wellchair like boxing and golf tennis darts vollyball just to name a few whats nice about the controls on wii is that you got to swing and move the controlers so im guessing its a workout just doing it sittin. now from personnal experiance i about die playing my daughter in boxing cuase you have a controller in each hand and you really throw punches and stuff i no your hubby would love that 1 you you can play most games from your coutch lol and still get a pretty good workout

That is great to know. He is a video game junkie, and if we could play togehter and have some fun doing it, it might be worth it. It is still a lot of $$ but maybe for Christmas this year.

I had gotten one last year from my hubby. Its fun I want the Fit though but using it for the active games I get daily doses of tennis and ski ball as well as batting practace in now its a blast. But hearing more about the fit I just wanna have that too. Thanks

We got one for my nieces at Christmas also. That was the big thing on their list . The girls are very involved in sports and condition daily. So this is a way for them to exercise while having fun…Debe

Bucky, I love the Wii fit. I think it is good for any age at any level. My daughter and her family gave me one for xmas and we think it is wonderful.
