Novel Idea but TOTAL WASATE OF MONEY!! Trust!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wii 15-in-1 Family Pack - Black (Video Game)
Not a single person in my house will use any of this stuff. Several of the items broke very easily like the DAY we got it. ( The fishing poles for one). The rest of the time it is just to much trouble to completely undress the controller / remote and redress in these different "outfits", and that is all they are "pretty outfits". None of these pieces have any electronic part and do NOTHING for the game play experience. I have teenagers and young children by the ton thru here (mine and nieces and nephews). I bought a set for their house and mine. NO ONE uses any of it. They all prefer to just use the bare remote for everything. The entire boxed set has sat in the same place after the first day. In fact, anyone interested can email me and I'll give ya mine. I'm telling you, the kids will not use it. It's more trouble than added fun to the game. SERIOUSLY.

If you would like to pass this set on, please feel free to email me. My little boy would be happy to have it! :) Thanks for your posts.

I love your very indepth and honest assessment of this item. I was "thisclose" to ordering it to go with my Wii Sports game thinking it would add something. However, if these accessories are nothing more than "outfits" for the Wii remotes, who needs the extra work? For the price I'm not surprised that they are flimsy and break easily. Great con since who has the time to return items which will cost more to ship back than what you originally paid? I LOVE MY Wii but I'll just keep looking for more substantial accessories! Thanks, Jai, for saving me money, time, and unnecessary stress.

I have a son who would play with this and I am very poor. What do you want for it?

I don't see that these have every been marketed as anything more than "pretty outfits" in the first place. They are sold as nothing more than skins to help aid in the experience/ergonomics of the controls. I think the original author should do a bit more research before buying next time.

That was a very rude and unnecessary statement to make to a stranger. You don't what her actual circumstances are or how she acquired the device. It may have been a gift or her son may play on a friend's console. Life is hard enough these days with crime and war without humans being cruel to each other for no reason at all. I was taught by my father that "Broke is a state of being - poor is a state of mind." Member "leamon" is a broke person who is trying to do something nice for her son. She came here to ask a question without any malice or hatred in her heart. On the other hand, YOU went out of your way, took time from your day of earning an alleged high income, to make a comment which is hurtful and adds nothing to this discussion. Remember that in today's economy anything can happen - a person's financial situation can change without prior notice. Again, being "poor" is a state of mind - it's who and what we are, how we treat our fellow man - no matter how much money we have in the bank. "leamon", never ever refer yourself as poor again. You are just broke right now. Keep the faith and maintain the goodness in your heart. There are more than enough "poor" people in this world who spend their time being mean and spiteful to unknown citizens. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. You are "rich" in love and courtesy.
