Excerpt: After a few days of Wii Fit it became crystal clear to me. Nintendo started with the Wii Remote, and Nunchuk to get our hands moving, and now Wii Fit gets our legs (and hopefully a lot more) moving as well.
Excerpt: I noticed an interesting theme at E3 in the year of our Lord 2010. There were some good games for children. There were a lot of good games for children. A couple of companies had fitness games for children. Nickelodeon Fit from our friends over at 2K Play is one of the most interesting.
Great active-gaming collection, perfect for preschoolers.

Summary: Parents need to know that Nickelodeon Fit is a package of physically active mini-games featuring a slew of characters from different Nick Jr TV shows: Dora the Explorer , Go Diego Go , Ni Hao Kai-Lan , and the Backyardigans .
Summary: Great solo fun if you can get hold of it and may even go someway to making the chubbier among us to put down the pork pie and do some exercise instead. Look out for future Nintendo Wii games in the pipeline that will also use the balance board.

Excerpt: The Wii system and much of its library is great for getting you off of the couch, and Wii Fit is no exception. Not only will it help you get in shape, it also helps you improve your center of balance. The Wii Balance Board measures your balance and weight.
Excerpt: Two words: competitive yoga. Leave it to Nintendo to take what for most people is an incredibly introspective and spiritual practice and turn it into what could easily become one of the coolest party/drinking games of all-time. Pure genius.
