I am having my son's 2nd birthday party tomorrow, and I was going to get him a Nintendo Wii. Unfortunately EVERYWHERE between Morehead and Barboursville is sold out of them. All the stores were saying that as soon as they got their shipments in today, they were sold out within a few hours. It's actually my fault for waiting until the day before his birthday party to go and get his Wii. But, I honestly had no idea that there is some kind of Wii craze going on right now. If anyone knows where I can get a Nintendo Wii by 6 pm tomorrow..PLEASE post and let me know!

Have you checked craigslist online? There are several listed on there in the area for sale, some new and some used, if you need one quick that might work out. Good luck and hope your little one has a happy birthday.

i do not know why everybody is so dang stupid. they want to run out and buy these dangerous toys for little kids even after being warned about the dangers. these computer games cause rapid eye movements and are known to cause eye damage, nerve damage, and even seizures and can cause death. but mommies and daddies everywhere want to keep up with joneses and dont worry about their kids health, just keep them occupied and out of sight and out of mind.

From the sound of it, I'm guessing you suffered nerve damage as a kid from playing video games.

First off..ignore the idiot from One stop Games (what a joke of a name). They're a joke. If you bought something damaged from them they wont refund it no matter what, which is why I'll never buy anything from them again. I'd just place your name with Gamestop and tell them you want a system. They'll actually treat you like a human being. Unlike the local garbage we have, they use common sense instead of some stupid corporate protocol. You want a fair deal? Stay the hell away from 1StopBullShit. I bought a game that was damaged ($63.59 down the drain) and they refused to return it.

I can physically prove my claim, by the way. I mean it when I say it. They're scum.

I dare any fool at one stop horseshit to meet me in public with cameras to disprove me. They'll never steal my money again, and I pray they don't prey on you like they did me. They're evil.

You can actually go to Walmart's website and do a Site to Store order for one, usually takes a couple days to get it, but it's a brand new system with a warranty, and most often you get an online discount. Hope this helps!

Hey famous amos! I wanted a Wii for my son because he likes to play it, granted he only plays for at the most 10 minutes, and then is ready to play something else, but I wanted him to have something that he enjoys. And I could be wrong, but I believe that the side effects of video games that you are referring to, are most generally for people with epilepsy. And in that case, watching certain t.v. shows, cartoons, commercials, etc, could have the same effect. And best believe that I spend my whole day with my son, and I don't just stick him in front of a t.v. or computer for the day. We actually play together with his toys, we color, dance, sing, go out places, etc. And I am only on the computer while he takes his nap....sooooo, it is completely inaccurate to say "just keep them occupied, out of sight, out of mind"...as I am one of the "mommies" that is blessed enough to get to stay home with my son, and I take him EVERYWHERE I go. Heaven forbid that a parent wants to buy their kids nice things without being ridiculed and told that they are a bad parent. Just because this is how you were raised and how you raised (if you have kids) your children, doesn't mean that's how everyone else does it. Have a nice day!!

They are sold out because the latest version Wii Fit Plus was just released, and it surged interest. I bought mine 4 days ago it was the last one in stock at best buy, and I had no idea the wii fit was also sold out everywhere. I had to call 14 local stores, targets, best buys, gamestop, eb, walmart, toys r us, and also checked all the "recommended retailers" on the nintendo wii website. Eventually I had to just buy it on eBay for $75 more than suggested retail lol and wait for shipping, but it was worth it! Sorry that doesn't help you much, just thought I'd share my frustration at the wii-less state of our country haha. Hope you found one for his bday! I have a 2 year old I wonder if he will play hmmm...are there toddler games??
