Nintendo Wii Mini


The Wii revision that nobody asked for.

Attractive design ; Cool red controllers

No online connectivity ; Composite AV only ; Not that much smaller than the original Wii ; Top loading drive actually means it takes up more space

It also means you can’t download apps for services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube, and - possibly most serious of all - it prevents patches from being applied to existing software. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shipped in 2011 with a...

Love the red!


I purchased this WII for our 8 yr old grandson, especially because it does not have access to the internet. He loves the Mario Kart game and is very happy with it. We were replacing the original WII that wore out.

My 5 year old loves Mario kart. It's easy to operate and we got him a steering wheel to put the remote in and he thinks it's the best thing ever. I like it a lot too, really takes me back to my childhood. We also got him the Super Mario Bros and it's...
