The coolest thing about the Wii is unarguably the controllers. Swish swosh bang hooray. Brilliant.
Imagine my surprise when we bought a (sigh) Fairytopia doll for Andrea’s birthday. Oh, and don’t click on that link if you’re diabetic. Seriously. And turn down the volume if you’re in an office.
So anyway, she gets her Elina doll which includes a DVD Game. Imagine my surprise and fear when it turns out the doll itself can be used to control the included DVD game. (Yes, DVD game. A game you play on a regular DVD player. Don’t ask me. All the rage with the kids these days, apparently.)
Of course this involves teaching the doll your remote, which only took a couple of minutes, and then it was time for Andrea to help Elina find crystals. How does that work, you ask? By turning the doll to the left to go left and right to go right. Like a pink, winged, little Wiimote with plastic boobs.
And it actually works. Andrea was ecstatic after she helped Elina find all the crystals.
