I purchased 2 of these back when my wife and I bought our Wii. After playing with the sports pack for a while, we got kind of tired of it. Switching the controllers in and out was annoying, and, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's impossible to set the game up with the remote in some of the equipment (like the tennis racket). We have found the game to be much more enjoyable WITHOUT the sports pack. I wouldn't bother wasting your money on this one, personally...

For the price, this sports pack cannot be beat. It is a useful and almost necessary add-on for any Wii system.

The baseball bat, tennis racket, and golf club share the same handle. The Wii controller fits into the handle. The handle screws onto each attachment. The protective clear cover on the controller must be removed first.

The baseball bat makes hitting much more fun. It's made of a lightweight plastic so it isn't even close to the weight of a real bat. (Which is a good thing for your TV). I still found myself assuming a batter's stance and following through on my swing. Oh, the controller must be removed during pitching. Not a big deal since it just slides out of the handle.

The tennis racket is sorely needed. It makes the tennis game much more fun. Stepping into forehand and backhand shots feels realistic. The racket was so much fun that I now play 5-6 games each time I fire up the Wii.

The golf club is nice but very short. I wish it had a little more length to it. Controller is about 2ft fully extended. Perhaps attaching a weight to the club head might help.

Haven't tried the steering wheel. Can say that the Wii controller sits in the middle of the steering wheel.

We purchased the Wii Grand Slam Sports Pack despite some reviewers saying you had to remove the remote to access various functions or change games, etc.

We quickly discovered that you do not need to use the infra red control with the bat, tennis racket etc. All you have to do is use the "buttons" (left, right, up, down, A, B, etc.) on the remote after it is put into the bat, racket, wheel, golf club and you can change games, players, start new game, etc. Very very cool. The Sports pack has added a whole new dimension to our gameplay. We have so much more fun now batting the ball, playing "intense" tennis matches, golfing, racing... the accessories make you feel more like you are playing the real game. Although I must agree with one reviewer who mentioned they wish the golf club was a bit longer. Considering the length of the bat and tennis racket, I don't know why they made the golf club so short, but still makes golf more fun than just using the remote (has not helped my "wicked-slice" however.... <sigh>).

You do have to remove the remote from the accessory handle when you want to return to main menu to end for the day, but all you really have to do is "tilt" the remote up at the end and that is it!

Again, We (the entire family and extended family are having the time of our lives with the Wii Grand Slam Sports Pack! I highly recommend this to anyone who has a Wii. You won't be sorry. Just play around with the buttons on the remote to control the various game options (start, stop, players, number of players, levels, etc.) and you will have a great time!

Not a bad product at all, just not great. The tennis raquet is the best for parties with the added lights. Of course you have to buy two packages.
I have not had luck using these toys for anything other than the exact sport they were designed for. Admittedly I thought my son could use the baseball bat like a sword in Zelza. Also you can't just leave the WiiMote in the toy because you have to take it out to setup the game each time.
It seems like they could have designed most of them with a cutout at the end of the Wiimote so you could navigate around before the game starts.

My husband received this sports pack for his birthday. The first thing we tried to use was the steering wheel...we had another one made by Nintendo and we wanted to play Mario Kart together.

We were sad to see that the Steering Wheel does not work -- there is no cutout for the sensor at the end of the Wii remote to communicate with the game! It completely blocks the signal from the remote! You would think they would have noticed this...The Nintendo steering wheel, however, works fantastic.

I found a similar product at Costco but choose this one because of the price. Of course, being cheaper it really shows. Everything is miniature compared to the brand marketing by Nintendo and hard plastic vs. a softer version. Had I purchased these at a store, I would have returned them; now we're stuck with them.

This looked like the perfect addition to our Wii. We discovered immediately that it is not even made by the same manufacturer as Wii and is not put together well at all! The controller and pool stick do not line up so do not work together. The bat does not screw on to the remote holding piece properly. We didn't even try the rest of the stuff after we tried the pool stick and bat. It's all cheap and worthless light plastic that looks like it could break at any minute and that does not fit together well. Thank goodness for the return policy at the store we bought this from!!!

(I HAD to rate this in order to post; it doesn't even deserve one star in my book.) I was thrilled to find this item on Amazon.com, and at such a good price, until we opened ot on Christmas morning. The plastic is cheap, the baseball bat wouldn't thread on correctly, and I almost broke the thing trying to get it off! I was afraid to try any other attachments. There is no opening in the wheel for the laser, so it can't be used, and the hole in the wheel for the wrist-strap is too small to fit the strap through. This package is a perfect example of "you get what you pay for". On the up-side, Amazon.com is willing to refund my money, including shipping, and even provided a return shipping labal, all with NO hassle!

This accessory pack is a great idea that was poorly executed. Both the base for the bat, tennis racket and golf club and the steering wheel suffer from the same three annoying little issues that make this pack unusable. First, the space for the Wii remote to slot into them is just slightly too big, which causes the remote to constantly move around under your fingers and feel like it might fall out. Second, the cutout space for the trigger button on the remote makes it difficult to use the trigger button, especially on the steering wheel. Third, the hole for the Wii Remote strap to go through is just slightly too small for the adjuster on the strap that comes with the remote to fit through, so you have to use the cheap flimsy strap that comes with the kit instead of the quality strap that comes with the Wii Remote.

Don't waste your money on this accessory pack, there are FAR better accessories out there.

The hole that passes the wrist strap is too narrow for the original Nintendo wrist strap which has wide latch.
The remote does not feel well secured in the handle.
The silly tennis racket light feature needs two AAA batteries, but the battery door is so flimsy that the batteries fly off from hard swings!
Of course the remote infrared receiver is completely blocked.
The clear cover does not hold on the remote at all and falls off.
