CTA's "Wii-Dum" dumbbells look like a good way to improve your workout.

Don't be fooled.

These are extremely flimsy, poorly made plastic shells. They weigh 1.7 lbs each, which doesn't provide much of a workout if you routinely lift items heavier than your TV's remote control.

The weights are located in the head closest to your body, which makes the dumbbell unbalanced and awkward to hold. The heads are strictly for show, but they're bulky enough to press into your wrist. Gripping the dumbbell is uncomfortable and forces your wrist into an unnatural position.

You cannot use a charger base with the dumbbells, and the gel sleeve must be removed before inserting them into the shells.

This was a great idea poorly executed. Avoid this shoddy and useless product!

At first I was pretty sure these were something for the kids, and to be honest they probably are better for the kids, than they are for a grown man. I mean they are pretty light. But this is the Wii Fit we are talking about, not an actual dumbbell to use for BULK-ing up. Go get some wrist weights for that. Are these great for Yoga? Yes indeed! Are they great for tone-ing workouts? Without a doubt. Should the kids use them? YES!!! Should you use them? YES! They are solid, well balanced, grip well, and after using them for a little bit your arms will feel that "burn" much faster than using the 6 oz wiimotes.

It's true that these dumbbells aren't very heavy, but they sure do come in handy when using my Wii Fit! I can absolutely tell a difference when compared to not using these during my workouts, and it's great that they're functional and can hold the remote and nanchuk at the same time. I use them mostly when doing the step aerobics and free step, but I also use them while on my recumbent bike. These are a nice way to get your body moving more without overdoing it, so I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Do you know that exercise on Wii Fit plus that suggest you hold a bottle of water? Well how in the heck is it supposed to measure your reps if you aren't holding the Wii Mote! Enter this product. It's sturdy, just about the right weight to kick it up just a notch on your arm workouts, and works with both of the games listed and any game that uses the Wii mote to do arm reps. I wouldn't risk buying any other kind.

Picked this up for my girlfriend as a Christmas present. It was an impulse buy, because I saw it at Kroger for under $10. I already have Wii Fit Plus and a Wii Balance Board under the tree (along with a cover for the Balance Board) so I figured this would be a good addition. Due to injuries sustained in a car wreck several years ago she has weakness on her left side so I figured that a light set of weights like this would be just enough to add a little bit to her exercise without overwhelming her.

I checked out the weights before wrapping the box and was surprised at how sturdy they actually are. If I were getting weights for myself I'd want something that was a bit heavier, but for those looking to add a little toning to their Wii Fit or other routines then these are perfect. And even for me I imagine that they'll add a little something extra to my exercises; if it's not enough, I'll just strap on some wrist weights to go along with the controller weights.

The obvious use of these is for games like Wii Fit and Yoga, but I see them getting some use with Wii Sports Boxing in my future as well. Probably Wii Sports Resort Swordfighting as well... I used to be a sport fencer and have been thinking of getting back into it, and the weight could definitely help to tone my sword arm. ;)

Bottom line: Don't buy these if you're looking for a major weight-lifting experience... go buy some free weights instead. If you want to tone your arms a bit when getting some exercise on the Wii, though, these weight clip-ons will give you that little bit extra you might be looking for.

The Wii remotes fit in there perfectly and they are easy to use while working out. The workout game I'm using right now does not require the numchuk, but I have it in the weight anyway just to keep them balanced.

Only con is that the weights are pretty light and there's no way to adjust the weights to be heavier as I get stronger. Using regular dumbbells is awkward with the remote. If there was just some rings or something to add to these it would be perfect.

I love my Wii Fit, and I saw this dumbbell set as a way to add to add a little extra oomph to my exercise routine. I use the word "little" because the added weight seems barely noticeable. If you believe in the philosophy of "no pain, no gain," maybe these aren't for you. But if you spend at least several hours a week with your Wii Fit, as I do, why wouldn't you want the added benefit these dumbbells can provide?

They are much better quality than I expected. I always wished there was something like this to accompany the Wii remote. I never felt like it was doing much good to do arm exercises with just the light weight remote. This is a great idea.
