We bought a Wii.
We have studiously avoided buying any of these game things before (whatever they were called, Game Boys, XBox whathaveyou). I figure kids nowadays need less time sitting in front of the TV than more. But the Wii is different.
It has been used in rehabilitation and as a physiotherapy tool. Unlike with other games, you hold a remote which picks up on your movement and translates that into the movement on the screen. So it's far more active.
To give you an idea, here is Beaver boxing (with a remote in each hand). And you know what? He was pretty good too. Very fancy footwork. And a mean right hook punch.
Possum is more a golf player, and also surprisingly good at the game, given he's never even seen a game of golf played. He also likes the car racing games, of course. W
And Boo Boo? She loves them all. You should see her "boxing" her little arms around like a mad woman. It's a sight to see...
