Beware that this is not a Nintendo product but a product for use with Wii machines and therefore items like the Skate Board do not fit on this balance board. Plus it started malfunctioning the second time we used it, it would not register my sons weight (49lbs) the second day we tried it no matter how many times I tries to reconfigure it.

First, this product is made in China and the only instructions come in a very poor English rendition. There is no manual. A sample instruction is "The contact noodles of the bottom noodles, have to assurance be neat, otherwise influence wii fit of normal operation and function" Huh?

Your Wii console may or may not acknowledge this device. Further information about the source of this product can be found at "[...]" which lists a few Nintendo like devices for sale. The site is in both English and Chinese. The site does NOT include the Wii Balance Board on its list of available items. If I knew this when shopping, I would not have bought this imitation product.

When I received this in the mail, I found that it is not what I expected. It is a knock-off from another country with poorly written english on the packaging. The seller was contacted twice about returning the unopened item, but didn't bother to respond. I won't purchase from this seller again.

The product sent was not the Nintendo brand and it didn't work properly. Had an extremely hard time getting the sender to contact me regarding a refund.

All in all I wasn't impressed.

It works! It works well! Stupendously accurate, super fun, and it's helped me get into shape. In July of 2013 I weighed 330 lbs and was concerned about the Balance Board handling my weight. Today, I just weighed in on Wii Fit Plus at 247 lbs. A combination of nutrition and exercise, plus the motivation and accountability that comes from daily weigh-ins on the balance board have been tremendous.

Full disclosure? I've moved on to distance running instead of doing the exercises on the wii fit. But I still 'check in' with it every day, and it helps keep me in-check. I can also go back and look at how my weight has progressed. What other scale can do that!?

The Wii board worked instantly and I did not have any problems what so ever. The only complaint I could have would be that I did not know how to get it to work with my wii at first. I remembered I had to configure the wii remotes with the wii and you have to do that with the wii board to to get it to work. instructions would have been nice but I figured it out.

It has been day # 20 and still going strong. This is ideal for working on your balance and coordination. The interactive games are the best. My Family has even gotten in on the action and having a ball. The weighting flucuate sometimes but I use it more to the exercise games than the weighting. I definitely would recommend this product.

I own the Wii Fit Plus, and I enjoy it very much! From boxing to snowball fights, it seems to have it all (almost!). But really, I should be reviewing the balance board, not the game I use it for. It seems very responsive and accurate, hasn't given me any problems. The batteries last a long time too! I say it's well worth the purchase!

I bought this because, I lost mine when I moved. The seller advertised it exactly how it is. It was very clean. All I had to do was put batteries in it and sync it with my system and it works perfect. I also got it very quickly. I would recommend this product/seller to anyone.

There are a few extra steps on connecting this product to your Wii, but after setup is complete, the games can begin! It is a great tool for my Wii Fit Plus. It's sturdy and if you get a cover, it stays in excellent shape.
