Sarah Gives Away a Wii™ and a Wii Fit™ Plus

This is super awesome. You can win a Wii™ system and a Wii Fit™ Plus game! Right here, on my review site!

That's right. You heard me. I have been selected as a Nintendo Enthusiast and received this Wii console and Wii Fit Plus game (including balance board) from Nintendo to give away.

Simply leave a comment in the comment section on this post that answers the question “How would you fit some fit in with Wii Fit Plus from Nintendo”? (Also acceptable How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?)


Entries will be accepted until April 29, 2010 at 11.59pm.

Legal Disclaimers: You cannot win if you are in my immediate family. This means you, Mom.


You must be over 18 and be a resident of the United States. Sorry Canada. Sorry everyone else. You cannot win if you are a Nintendo employee.


There will be no disputing the drawing. It will be honest. The winner is final.

FTC Disclaimer: I did not buy the Wii console or the Wii Fit Plus game, in fact they will be sent to you directly via Brand About Town if you win. I did however get a Wii Fit Plus game, a Wii Fit Plus Party and a jacket for free. I also got a DSi, but don't tell my children.


Nintendo is providing the Wii system and the Wii Fit Plus game and the prizes will be sent directly to the winner. I’m just hosting the giveaway on my site.


I will have The Goon Squad draw a name out of a hat on April 30, 2010. The winner will be notified by email and the prize will be sent in 2 - 4 weeks.

-->I would love to win this. If I can do something fun and get exercise at the same time - - Double Bonus! I would do it when I get home from work before it's time to start dinner.

I would do it when the baby is napping! Sounds like so much fun!

jens said...

we have a lot of fun when we play the Wii's that everyone else got for Christmas! If our family had one I'd use it daily. My daughter loves to play the games and I'd like to explore the strength training and yoga aspects of the systme.

Becky said...

Me! Me! Me!

I'm doing pretty well with the gym, but I'd love something fun for home- plus, getting the boys involved would be superbly awesome. I may not have let sleep trump working out like I did this morning (first time all week, though!) if I could just go downstairs and kick butt on my Wii Fit Plus.

Suz said...

About the woodchuck thing? Check
here


I've heard the Wii Fit Plus is fantastic. I have the Wii Fit & my kids love to challenge me on the snowboarding (I suck) and the soccer ball thing (I duck, I'm scared of those stupid flying panda heads). Hope you find this good for a laugh, if not for an entry.

Suz said...

And since that link didn't work, try this one. I swear, I feed my kids. Occasionally.

shiny said...

I would fit this in between the 150 flights I climb on the stairmaster and the 300 sit-ups I do every night.

However, I may not be quite up to 300 yet. And I don't have a stairmaster. So the Wii Fit Plus will likely overshadow the two ends of my exercise sandwich.

(Thanks for the giveaway!)

Jamie said...

That much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck would chuck wood.

LauraC said...

I'm sorry to tell you but I would fit a Wii fit in by reading less blogs and exercising more.

fidget said...

Id stop staring at the wall and drooling on myself during naptime. Instead I'd use it to fit in fit

Carrie said...

Maybe if I had a Wii Fit Plus, I would be able to fit some fit in after my twins go to sleep, but still say inside the house. Because you're not supposed to leave babies alone in the house or something. Haha!

Anonymous said...

The Wii Fit Plus is just what I need to “fit some fit in”; I especially would love to use the yoga features in the privacy of my own home whenever I can squeeze out a few minutes. Gyms and stuff don’t work because something always comes up at the wrong time. At home I could fit in the time around everything else. Plus I am too shy and too embarrassed to do most of those things in public (some of those positions are a whole new level of embarrassing). Also what if my underwear lost its elastic at just the wrong time??? Seriously Sarah you gave me a whole new fear right there, I had never even thought of that possibility! So please, please, please choose me!!

mysecondjournal.wordpress.com said...

I would love to win a Wii and Wii Fit. #1.. we gave our Wii and Wii fit to my stepson to take to his mom's house.. leaving MP w/ none.. I want to get my fat ass in shape since I'm going on vacation with the inlaws in May. Exercising in doors when it's too hot or raining will be a bonus!

Ok I don't have ay of that stuff for posting my info - I am anonymous above

Dawn said...

I'm super competitive against my husband, so we'd battle it out with the Wii Fit Plus!

Karen said...

Wii Fit would be great. Exercise with a game, is that even aloud? Since the weather here can't decide what it's going to do, exercise indoors would help.

Abby said...

Wii Fit = working out at home = I don't have to wear pants.

Sharon Rosen said...

I would LOVE to win this. But really because I would gift this to my parents! My dad thinks the Wii is the next best thing to sliced bread... It's one of those things they would never ever buy for themselves (but just try and get them away from ours)!

Btw, I posted this too :)

Cassie said...

What a great way to exercise, I've heard so many positive things about this system and game! I would LOVE to win!

FishyGirl said...

Oh, I like the comment about not having to wear pants! I could exercise here in the house and wouldn't miss all the time when the kids are sick or I can't get a sitter, like with the unused gym membership.

Suzan said...

I would fit a big fat bag of Wii Fit into my day . . . I have 3 weddings, 3 showers, and an engagement party in the next 6 months and I really should start building my stamina!

Chuck Foxtrot said...

I last hit the gym in the mid 90s, so it might be time for another shot at it -- after the kids are asleep so they don't know that we have a game system int he house...

Adrianne Hamilton said...

My husband promised me a wii fit three years ago for my bday but then renegged. I have been losing weight on my own this year while the kids are at school. When summer comes I won't have that free time out of the house but I could use wii fit/ fit plus in the morning while they are all sleeping in.

Paige Jennifer said...

I would Wii Fit in the morning
I would Wii Fit in the night
I would Wii Fit my (not so little) ass off
Until it was tiny and tight

Stephanie said...

Ooh, I would love to win this. And I'm pretty sure my son would really be into it too (and he could burn off some of that extra energy)!
Thanks

Lori said...

I work 12+ hours a day and have an infant-any exercise happens late at night.

Rachel said...

Yes! I'd love to win this! I would exercise without leaving the house. Sometimes that drive to the gym seems awfully long.

Catkins said...

I agree, sometimes that drive is pretty far! Plus, you have to pick out workout songs and download them to your ipod, and wear something that's flattering (even though you're at the GYM! Where people SWEAT! And are generally not kept up). Seriously, I probably take more time to pick out what I'm going to WEAR at the gym than I actually spend at the gym!
So yes, if I could play and exercise at the same time, in my own house?! I'd be set!

Erica Voorhees said...

I would fit it right between the DVD and VCR.

AmyNaab said...

Wii fit is great! I would love to have one!

Lumpyheadsmom said...

I'm entering for my dad (is that kosher?) who would use it to have a regular Wednesday bowling night again.

He would also then have a bit of a clue as to what the hell my son is talking about all the damn time...

smartaleck said...

I am in law school ("part time program"--it's not as easy as those words make it sound) and work 25 or so hours a week. I love to go walking at night for exercise and stress relief, but live in a very rainy city.

I would definitely use the yoga program and be a much easier person to deal with--and relearn what it means to be flexible.

My fiance' would be so grateful that he would have a statue put up in your honor--or send you somewhere warmer all next winter so you never have to see snow except on TV!

Kathy said...

I would love to win this... I'm expecting a baby and will definitely need some help getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight and a Wii and Wii fit would be AWESOME!

smartaleck said...

did I mention that working out clears my mind and makes me answer questions properly?

smartaleck can be contacted at the same email address she uses for Sarah and the Goon Squad's main website--quick email to follow from there.

BIYF said...

I would play it in a boat!
And I would play it with a goat...

And I will play it in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
It is so fun, so fun, you see!

So I will play it in a box.
And I will play it with a fox.
And I will play it in a house.
And I will play it with a mouse.
And I will play it here and there.
Say! I will play it ANYWHERE!

S said...

I would fit Wii fit in every evening while listening to Royals games until I can fit back into my skinny jeans.

Mandy said...

I would love to win this Wii Fit! That way I all I wouldn't do is sit! I would actually get off my big butt, while playing Mini Putt!

Stacey said...

Video Games and Fitness...well it just doesn't get anymore fun than that.

Plus I don't have to leave home and be away from my kids any longer than needed which is a plus since I work outside of the home.

Lisa said...

Since Pong was the last game and console I owned,

http://www.classicgamesarcade.com/game/21599/Pong-arcade-game.html

I think I might be able to squeeze in some fitness on a Wii Fit from Nintendo ANYTIME!

Maybe I could also sit with the cool kids at lunch?

Rattling The Kettle said...

It has been conclusively determined by rigorous, double-blind studies, that a woodchuck would chuck exactly one quarter cord of wood, if a woodchuck could, in fact, chuck wood.

After chucking that quarter cord, he would then instantly die of exhaustion.

So it's not really that they can or cannot do it, it's more than they know better than to try.

Therese said...

I have been coveting this for a while now but can't seem to bite the bullett and make a purchase. I would love to win it. I have a new (is 10 months still considered new?) baby and am looking for more creative ways to exercise at home, this is perfect.

Dianne said...

Well with a 15 month and another one on the way (in 3 months), I don't really see myself getting back into my YMCA routine any time soon. I would absolutely love a wii fit for my home.

I could use it when the peanuts took a nap in the day or even after they go to bed. Plus, it looks so fun, I bet I could cajole my hubs to do it with me. I'm sure with the stress of a newborn, we're going to need a few laughs and I'm sure my uncoordinated self could provide said laughs!!

girlvaughn said...

My brain is exploding a little from "fit some fit" so clearly I need to win a WII in order to understand what this even means. And maybe I need to exercise more.

Hairline Fracture said...

I would love to win this. I am waiting to get a Wii next Christmas. If I had it now, I would actually work out--now that I am working full-time, I can't seem to drag myself to the gym (or even outside, lazy me!)

cindy said...

After the 3 kids were in bed - hubby and I would wii fit together! we have a 5 y/o and twin 2 year olds. we decided we were finally going to buy a wii /wii fit with the money we saved from quitting smoking (gross habit finally gone for good, yay!). then the washing machine broke. then the garage door broke. what's next? No wii for us in the near future.

Alison said...

I would use Wii Fit with my kids, which would have to be more fun than trying to do Pilates with my kids. They mostly think anything that puts Mommy on the floor is an opportunity to jump and hug and squirm on top of Mommy.

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

It would be awesome because I could fight with my kids over who gets the Fit next! Because we are always looking for the next thing to fight about. And then I can revoke their Fit privileges and have it all to myself, because that's fun, too.

Oh wait, that was a story about my night last night. Except it wasn't the Wii Fit, it was the big TV and an xBox 360.

Anyway, if it gets me off my butt and motivates me to start exercising, that would be the bomb-diggety. So pick me, K? Thanks.

soupisnotafingerfood at gmail dot com

Michele said...

Oh gosh have I been eyeing this. I would do it the minute the door hits my sons ass in the morning before I get started with work. Also? A woodchuck would chuck a lot of wood if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

michelle s. said...

Would love to have something that Gabriel and I can do together and get fit at the same time!

Erin said...

The Wii Fit Plus is just what I need to “fit some fit in”; I can neither find the time nor afford a gym, and I need a fun game to get me off my booty.

ListenToLeon.net said...

I've been looking for a way to get motivated for morning workouts along with my evening ones, so fitting some fit in on the Wii Fit Plus just might do the trick.

As far as the woodchuck question, I think it would chuck a few pieces of wood before getting bored and asking to come over to my house to play on the brand new Wii that I might win for the price of FREE NINETY-NINE!!!

Aubrie said...

I would use it while my husband is away at basic training so we can both look good when he gets back!

Fear and Parenting in Las Vegas said...

How would I fit in a FIT? With extra Crisco, of course. Because Florence Henderson told me to.

Kristen said...

I would use it with my boys -- exercise and fun for the whole family.

St said...

I would love to be able to do something fun at home! Something I can do with the kids, any time of the day, no matter the weather.

Lex - @laprimera said...

I have about 45 minutes free every morning if I get up when the alarm goes off instead of repeatedly hitting snooze. If I win? I will disable the snooze!

Jenni said...

A woodchuck would chuck a lot of wood, if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

I would make my husband bathe the boys BY HIMSELF so I could get my fit time in.

anthy said...

I would get up super early in the morning (6:30 AM!) so I could exercise with Wii Fit before going to work. Only part of the day when I'm not working and not exhausted. :-)

Thank you very much for the giveaway!

Lisa said...

I'm not sure when, but I suspect the weight of baby 3 won't magically melt away!

Cindy said...

Oh god. I work at a place that has free food (GOOD food) all over the place every single day. And I don't know how to say no.

Plus, my husband has not only one but TWO Xboxes...and it's my turn. :)

-A said...

Want. I would find some fit because it is either freezing and snowing, or extremely windy, or about to become to freakin' hot to do anything outside. And yes, I've talked myself out of running every day for the past week for one of those reasons. I need a Wii and Wii Fit Plus!

LoriH said...

I have recently discovered that I am a temperature diva. I have a narrow range of acceptably comfortable temperatures. Winter has lasted way too long. I am sure by April 30th summer will be here. Wii fit would help me workout in the perfect temperature of my house.

Backpacking Dad said...

I would use the Wii Fit between writing contest entries to win MORE Wii FITS!!!

All I do nowadays is enter contests to win Wiis. So, if I am going to work out it will have to be when I'm not entering a contest.

7:45-8:00pm, every Wednesday, like clockwork.

Also, do you really mean that this contest runs until April 29th (over a month)? Or is it only until March 29th?

See, who's looking out for you?

Stacy said...

I would do Yoga on the Wii Fit...I took a class and loved it, but can't afford to continuously take classes.

You are drawing names on my twins' birthday - does that count for anything?

Mama said...

I would do the yoga at 2am when I can't sleep.

My 7yr old boy does the yoga at school for his breaks (he has Aspergers) and he's been begging me to get it for at home. I told him I would try so I'm keeping my finners crossed (that's what my kids say)

Moxymama said...

I would love to win this. Something for me to do while the kids have quiet time.

Carol Rachel said...

Pick me (randomly out of a hat)!

Tammy said...

I'm not related, can I win? So, for people without links, how do you contact that person if they win?

tammy said...

I keep trying to leave a comment, but this thing doesn't like me. That's what I get for getting up at 6am on a Saturday.

Jocelyn said...

We live in the frozen North (oh, all right: it's just northern Minnesota)...and so many days of the year, it's too forbidding to exercise out of doors. Currently, I run year 'round, but the frostbite is slowly eating away at any remaining healthy skin I have. Thus, the opportunity to exercise inside and thereby retain my nose and toes would be AMAZING.

Plus, I have two kids, and since they attend a public school and are often fed the crap served there for hot lunches, they can use all the body moving we can provide.

Kirsten (above Jocelyn's sis) said...

I'm planning a long distance walk in England this summer (190 miles in two weeks - walking coast to coast...yea, that's right, this fat girl is taking on a challenge!)...anything helps me train!

Cristin said...

I would love to have a wii. I really NEED that hula hoop game. And now that I'm woefully unemployed, I would wii all day in my pajamas!

Jeanette said...

I know i would use the Fit part plenty but let's face facts -- I need me some old skool Mario Brothers and I need it now.

Goon Squad, please pull my name!!

Corbi said...

Right now I am fit to be tied!! But in about 9-10 weeks I will have a ton of baby weight to lose!!The Wii Fit would certainly help.

Laura said...

Oooh do I need this! I work from home and it would be great to take a nice break to work out on this awesome little machine!

Sue said...

I'd have to get my butt out of bed earlier to fit in some Wii Fit. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

purplelover04 said...

i hate to exercise but with a wii i think it would be fun because im playing games and not thinking about it. i would really like to win this because this would help with my weight lose goal

Headless Mom said...

I really need this! It would help me get more exercise because a lot of the activities are like games-I'll get my competitive on!

JessicaAPISS said...

I'm Wii-less. So I'd have a hoot catching up with the cool kids AND get some exercizin in. Double awesome!

velocibadgergirl said...

OH MAN, I would love a Wii Fit. Alas, not in the budget right now since we have a new baby. But of course now I need it more than ever because of what the new baby did to my thighs. ;)

If I won, I'd use nap time on my days off and then squeeze in a bit of Fit after the little dude goes to bed at night.

SUEB0B said...

Dude, I'm unemployed. I can Wii all day long!

Thien-Kim aka Kim said...

If I win this, I guess that means I have to work out huh? I'll attempt to do this while my kids are awake. Which means my daughter will be climbing all over me and the baby will yell because he wants to do the same thing!

LOL! kimstoys at gmail dot com

nonlineargirl said...

I would challenge my husband, and he is totally competitive and would have to say yes. Loser has to carry Ian around (and at 25 pounds, carrying him is yet another way to fit in some fit).

Also, Chris wanted to know if he could use logarithms. I'm not sure what it means, but I think it has to do with woodchucks.

Tela said...

Insted of getting up at 5:15 IN THE MORNING and leaving the house, I could wake up at a normal time, stay in my house, and work on my fitness.

Jennifer said...

Me please! Me please! I've never won anything, except for the time in college I won a trip for two to the Bahamas with a total stranger.

Megs said...

Would love to do this with my kids! They beat me at everything video game related. Even the 6 y/o.

AMD said...

OOh! I've been wanting these for a long time. Unfortunately, we just bought a house, so they've been moved to the bottom of the list. Now that I have somewhere to use them, if I won these, I would WiiFit when I got home from work!

Sarahviz said...

My husband has lost 20 lbs since January (me? Notsomuch) and we are both looking for something new to do besides The (Dreaded) 30-Day Shred!

Anonymous said...

What do you mean "This means you Mom!" How am I gonna get fit if I can't win????

Love, Your Mother

Punk Rock Mom said...

Wow great give-away. When wouldn't I fit in some wii fit? That's the real questions! As for the woodchuck, do those even exist?

alecia said...

I would do this in the a.m. before I got my kids up from school.
luckysweeps13mom(at)gmail(dot)coms

Julia said...

I've been debating buying a wii for a year now and can't quite justify the money on a teacher's budget... getting it for free would be awesome! I could actually get up and exercise before heading off to school.

Amber said...

This would be so amazing to win! I would fit some Wii into my life in every way possible. I might even use it in the shower! Okay...not the shower, but while I'm showering I'll play Wii in my head. Then when I get out I'll use it for real. This would be so awesome to win because I am trying to exercise more and eat healthier and this would give me HUGE inspiration to do so. Also, my mom is disabled and can't always leave home to get out and move and exercise, the Wii would be perfect for her to slowly start to get healthy all from home! Thanks so much for this great chance to win! Please choose Mii for the Wii.

Shanna said...

I would love to get a shot at this drawing. I have been thinking about getting one of these for a few months now, since the baby weight (she is 2 years old now) just doesn't go away when I sit in my chair and think really hard about exercise. ;)

Kyla said...

Wow, what a great drawing - I would love to win this.

Melisa with one S said...

I would get some fit in with the Wii Fit right after watching The Biggest Loser. So motivating!

Bonggamom said...

I would love to win this! It would really motivate me to get away from my computer and have some fun and quality time with my kids!

bonggamom@yahoo.com

Goddess in Progress said...

What the heck, count me in! :-)

Natalie S said...

I would love to win this! My oldest daughter is just old enough to participate (3.5) and I would love to do this with her. We would play in the late afternoons pre-dinner, when the time before daddy comes home seems to stretch forever.

Thanks!
Natalie

Kristabella said...

I would really like to win this! I hear how good the Wii Fit games are and I need to do SOMETHING to lose this weight! And this would only involve getting up from the couch!

jackieblue said...

I would put this to *great* use getting personalized workouts for myself when the kids are in school. :)

Funnelcloud Rachel said...

I just started working part time, so I can fit in all the Wii Fit I want! Less working = more Fit!

Hirano Family said...

This would be SO FAB!

I have been walking and eating right and the Wii Fit Plus would aid me in my quest for healthy living (and moving)!

Plus I could get the kids involved with me. That would be lots of fun.

-Ann

Tiffany said...

This would be so great for me to be able to exercise after my late classes (fulltime student and work 2 jobs)! When it's too late to safely leave the house alone at night to exercise...enter Wii fit! *I hope*

Cobwebs said...

I'm with several of the other commenters; exercising is kind of a drag, so doing some kind of fun activity is a good incentive.

Gretchen said...

This would make a great birthday present for my sister!

Kristen said...

I'm a single parent of one child who is in multiple activities. The only time I have for myself is early in the morning, so I'd use it then. (izzykl88 at yahoo dot com)

Nancy said...

What a great giveaway! Thanks for hosting it.

genevieve said...

i have an elliptical dust collector in the basement but can't use it during the day since the basement isn't safe for the 2 & 4 y.o. girls. I hate going down there when my hubby gets home because i'd rather spend time where the rest of the family is! a Wii would help me stay where the fun is while getting some exercise! maybe the whole family could join, too!

schnebly said...

please please pick me. . i would love a wii fit . . it would be so much fun for changing up my routine! thanks for doing this!

Jade Wombat said...

My water aerobics class is canceled as of next week:( I'd love to have a Wii Fit to keep me moving and having fun at the same time.

wuvweesa said...

Hmm, I'd like to say I'd get up early every morning and Wii Fit myself into shape while everyone else is still asleep, but I'm guessing it's more likely I would get most of my exercise from wrestling the remotes away from my wee demon spawn.

Sarah said...

If my family can spend hours pretending to snowboard or drive ATVs in front of the TV, imagine the fun we would have being able to ACTUALY MOVE in front of the TV! Seriously, we would all have a blast with this.
