Editors Picks, December 2018

Are not the usual book recommendations, but games! What better time for games that are focused on keeping the whole family fit then the holidays! And you are guaranteed to have lots of fun together while being active!! And of course, we love books so we had to add two. We think you’ll like the Yoga one. See below…

Fitness books make a great gift that say “I really care about you and I want you around for a long time”. But these are special gifts because they get everyone in on the fun. It teach kids that they can put down their phones, get active, and have fun. And who doesn’t want that for their children?
And as children, we want mom and dad healthy for a long time. Nothing says “I care” more than helping them stay active and happy.

Zumba Kids Wii


Price: Check on Amazon

Customer Review: “I bought this for my 3,5, and 8 year old nieces for Christmas. My sisters, the girls, and my 6 year old nephews had a wonderful time dancing the day away! The songs are awesome! I actually liked this a bit better than the just dance games because there’s actual people on the screen with fun backgrounds. I would definitely buy this game again, and maybe another for myself :)”

Wii Fit Game with Balance Board

Customer Review: “So I recently hurt myself while doing a slightly overzealous workout and decided to kind of roll back to Wii Fit for awhile while things heal since it is a less high intensity workout (And stretches the lats a little less, which is what I hurt). After a couple workouts with this, I am asking myself why the heck I ever fell out of the habit of using Wii Fit… It’s a good workout. It’s fun, it works off a decent amount of calories and it isn’t hurtful while doing it. I must have been nuts to ditch this for what I was doing…”

Wii Fit Sports Console

Customer Review: “I love this product. It has cemented both my status as the awesome aunt and as the good daughter.

I bought this for both of my parents’ health, and for my nieces’ and nephews’ entertainment.

The kids love the sports games on this system so much. Unlike with the other console that we have, they don’t sit down and play all day long. This console forces them to get up and be active. They don’t even realize that they’re exercising and having fun at the same time.”

Wii Fitness for Dummies

by Christina & Bill Loguidice

Price: Check on Amazon

Customer Review: “”Wii Fitness for Dummies” is a very informative book on how to use three Wii fitness games. The largest portion of the book is about Wii Fitness Plus – rightfully so since it contains the most features of the three. Although I’ve used the Wii Fit Plus for quite some time, I learned a few new things about it from reading this book. In fact, I’m glad I read the book because I’ve been underutilizing the Wii Fit Plus.”

    1. Thank you for visiting Carolyn! And I am thrilled you like it. I hope that these gifts also help bring the family closer. Everyone is so busy these days that taking a little time to have some fun is good for our mental health too! :) Hugs!

    1. Thanks Nasuko! I can’t help but notice that when families are together, they are often on their phones and little conversation is going on. It happens with couples too. Everyone’s lives are so very busy, even from a young age. Family games are a great way to get together and those that teach that being active (we didn’t learn this growing up) can be so much fun. Doing it together is perfect for the holidays. I thought it might help make some great family memories too. And I do hope that there are a few pictures taken! I know I’m not graceful watching me Wii is hysterical! Enjoy, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! :) hugs!
