Baby Stuff Review

Marco Arment makes one of my favourite iPhone/iPad apps called Instapaper and is, to put it mildly, known for being particular.

His son is 8 months old and he posted a list of baby stuff that he and his wife have used that they’ve found to be high quality and work well.

We’re on child number three so we’re not about to plunk down a bunch of money for new stuff at this point, but there’s a lot of great ideas of things I wish we’d known about back when we first started having kids like the wipes dispenser and snotsucker.

I Have a Wii for 6 Months – What Should I Play?

I’ve been loaned a Nintendo Wii by my brother-in-law while they’re gone for 6 months. The games they have are:

Wii Games We Borrowed:

  • Super Mario Brothers Wii
  • Lego Batman 2
  • Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Batman The Brave and the Bold
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Skylanders (I seriously need this one explained to me!)
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns (Not pictured above)

I’m listing these games to show that I already have them to play. I’m looking for other ideas of what to play.

We’ve never really played any Wii games. We have an Xbox 360 so we’ve played any games that are available on both platforms (i.e. Lego Star Wars, etc.)

Up until the Wii I was a huge Nintendo fan and owned the original NES and played a bunch of games on the Super NES.

This is Where You Come In

So my question to you, faithful and knowledge readers of my blog, what games should we play in our short window with a Wii?

Reply in the comments below, on the Facebook page or to my Twitter account. I’ll post a follow up with all the suggestions.

We’re on an adventure trying to figure out this minivan life.
