I ordered this at the same time I ordered the Wii Fit. I should have waited so I knew exactly what I was buying. I love my Wii Fit but this package is a rip off. There are only 1 pair of socks (that I can buy for 1.50 anywhere. The rechargable battery pack can be bought seperately for 18.99. The silicone sleeve for the board isn't really needed, especially of you are wearing skid proof socks. The little carry case for the board is cute, but I don't plan on toting it around very often. I thought the mat was something exclusive for the wii but it is just a plain old exercise mat.

This 5-in-one Wii Fit bundle was a complete rip-off! The carrying case is a pathetic, cheap, thin little thing that wouldn't protect the board at all if you carried it inside (assuming the seams didn't tear from the weight of the board.)

The battery pack doesn't work when I stand on the board, it is disconnecting from my weight (which is well within the 300 pounds the balance board is rated for.)

There was only 1 pair of socks in the package (not the 3 I paid for) but they don't fit my women's size-11 feet anyway because they're made for kids I guess. They barely pull up over my heels.

The exercise mat isn't bad, it's a decent thickness and size but I could have bought it separately for $8 and saved $43 because the cover for the board isn't worth much, either. It doesn't stay in place because the little plug-in bobs don't line up properly with the holes on the bottom of the board.

All in all, a terrible purchase that I am seriously considering returning (what a hassle!)

Bottom Line: SAVE YOUR MONEY!

Purchased the 5 in 1 Fitness Bundle for my wife for Xmas. The bundle itself, in theory, was very appropriate for the Wii Fit. The battery and charger, from the get go, wouldn't hold a charge. Contact with DreamGear yielded no results other than the usual dog and pony show of apologies and excuses with the problem surrounding the rechargeable totally ignored and unresolved. The company Director did not have the courtesy to return calls to discuss the matter. Out of all this, it was learned from DreamGear, that the use of the battery pack would result in the voiding of the warranty, confirmed later by direct contact by Nintendo. If buying this DreamGear product , or even thinking of it, save your money. The product is shabby and the customer service is even shabbier.

I love my Wii Fit...thought the bundle would be a great deal...but my one complaint is that Amazon stated 3 pairs of socks....the box said 3 pairs of socks included...only received 1 pair!

Hmmmm false advertisement maybe??!! I want my other 2 pairs of socks...!

The Wii people need to cough up the other 2 pairs of socks and stop advertising on the product packing that they're included.

**** UPDATE 8/4/08 ****
Hey thanks C. Christiansen...I wrote the company and they will be sending me the extra socks too!
I had to fax them my receipt from Amazon and they said once they become available...4wks...they'll mail them to me.

Thanks again for the info C. Christiansen...very helpful!!

I can't believe people think this was a ripoff. I just got it, with plans to send it back if the reviews are true, and I think it's great. The jelli cover did not rip, or even seem like it would rip, when I stretched it over the balance board. The carrying bag is pretty cool and very convenient for the trip I have planned next week. The socks are whatever, and the green yoga mat is great. I have a yoga mat, but I don't want to put my balance board on it, so having the second one for the wii works perfectly. And when need the battery charger. The charger and cover alone (which were the items we really wanted the most) would have been the same price as the whole bundle was. I don't get why people think this was a ripoff.

Warning, do not buy this product. I used the battery pack in my 1 week old balance board and it messed up the internal mechanics of the balance board. We were getting the "Step off the balance board" message when noone was on it. I called Nintendo and they said they do not authorize the use of this product and it has been known to reprogram the mechanices of the board and create this error message causing your board to be inoperative. Thankfully, I had just purchased the board at BestBuy and was witin the 30 day return policy otherwise Nintendo said I would have to send the board in for repairs and pay for it myself. We had no idea that using this battery pack would wreck our board and warn consumers not to purchase this product. We are back to using regular batteries and want to warn people about the possible results in using this product

This thing killed my balance board, since I used these rechargable batteries my balance board can't synchronize, all my games said "please step off me and press A" even when I'm not. Nintendo invalidates warranty if you use these batteries, so I wont recommend this product for anyone.

I really did need everything in this bundle, well maybe not the socks, but the rechargeable battery, the silicone cover, the yoga mat and the storage bag are great accessories for the Wii Fit.

The battery pack is great. We use the balance board every day and I only charge it about 3 times a week. The cover fits the board perfectly and has really helped. My kids love the mat. Since there is only one pair of socks, we just wear our own and they work great.

I can't get the word out enough! My Wii FIT Board DIED! We called Nintendo and they will honor fixing it but they did tell us that Nintendo does not make this product and the recharger sometimes does not send out the right voltage, so it FRIES the balance board! Nintendo has graciously said that they would take the board back and fix it for free but I am without my FIT for 3 - 6 weeks. DO NOT BUY THIS KIT!!!
