I’ve been using my Wii for three days now and wow … I can see how easy it would be to either damage furniture or get hurt on it if you aren’t careful!
The other day I was using the Wii Fit balance board and my toes started to go numb. I don’t have a gel cover for it, but I think this weekend we’ll go out looking for one as I think that will help to make the board more comfortable to use.
I know they have lots of warning in their instructions on each game, but you have to wonder how many people have knocked over lamps or fallen into tables or even the TV as they’ve been playing Wii games in too small rooms. LOL I wonder if those Seattle injury lawyer that I see advertised on TV all the time are getting more business thanks to Wii?
So far my dog has been pretty good when we’ve been using the Wii. She’s really curious about what I’m doing and has tried to jump at the remote in my hand thinking I’m throwing something for her to catch … but for the most part she’ll go and lie down on her bed or the couch if I tell her too.
I’m glad she’s being pretty good about it because I don’t want to have to put her in the crate every time we use the Wii – particularly since I want to use it daily to get in shape. However I can see her jumping at me at the wrong time and causing one of those injuries that I was talking about earlier! Remember I’m a very klutzy person so it would be easy enough for her to jump at me and for me to get off balance or something and crash into the couch and possible knock down other pieces of furniture etc … (watch for a future post with the last topic in the near future!).
If you have a Wii have you had any strange accidents yet?
