All the Rage!

Have you heard of the Wii Fit? I got one for my anniversary! Well, let me rephrase that. Kevin had to tell me I was going to get one for our anniversary. IF they are ever in stock. They are extremely popular right now and nobody seems to be able to keep them on the shelf. Case in point- we were at Target yesterday and were just browsing through the store. We slowly made our way over to the Electronics department and I looked at the empty shelf and then happened to notice there was a couple there in the aisle with a Wii Fit in their hands! I went and asked an employee if they had any more and he said they just put one on the shelf, but if it was gone, they were out. I stuck around for a few minutes, just in case the couple decided it was out of their budget and put it back. hahaha During the few minutes I was there, several people came to the department looking for one. One guy was outraged because he had called and they told they had one and he drove all the way there only to miss out on it. They would not hold it for him per store policy.
Game Stop told us they get at least one a week, but they sell very fast. I believe it comes with everything you need to play, but there are also games you can purchase separately.
I'm anxious to get one, but I am also okay with waiting. I'm keeping my eye on as we have almost the exact amount we need left on our Heroes at Home Sears gift card.
In case you aren't familiar with it at all
here is a link to a great review of the Wii Fit. And here is Nintendo's Official site for the Wii Fit with some great info.
If you ARE familiar and you've played with one yourself, I'd love to hear from you! Tell me what you think!

GIRL... it's awesome!! I LOVE my WiiFit! It was worth the wait for us. We just "happened" on one at Target one day and bought it. I use it every day. I can't tell you enough about it! I use the disk that came with it and I haven't really looked for more "wiifit" games, but I'm sure they are out there. My favorite is the step aerobics!
