Wii Nunchuk Controller - White
3.  Wii Nunchuk Controller - White by Nintendo
The list author says:
  "This is an extension of the basic Wii Remote that includes a joystick.  It's not required for all games, but you should probably purchase one for each of your remotes - it will make your game experience more enjoyable."

Wii Sports
