    I got one of the first Wii but after a few minutes playing the strap broke and the controller shot off and hit my partner in the face resulting in two broken teeth. She slipped at the same time falling into the TV set and smashing the screen. The TV was plugged into the surround sound system and consequently pulled it over and smashing into my CD and DVD collection. I advise anyone to be careful of the wii

    If you have an original version of the strap, please complete the form below to get a replacement
    ...
    Once your replacement wrist strap has shipped, you will receive a confirmation email from Nintendo. We expect to begin shipping replacement straps around December 21st. It will take 5 to 9 days for delivery depending on your location.

    The US web site has a form to fill in but the UK/Europe site does not appear to have such a form.

    Any help much appreciated.
    sorry man, but this is strictly US and Canada because Nintendo was smart enough to realize the problem after all of these issues came up in North America, so they replaced all of the old straps with new ones in time for Europe and Japan launch. So basically, if you can break a strap in Europe, you're REALLY getting into the game

    I'm not sure if that correct, cause I've looked at the old and new straps (see picture) and it appears that mine is the old one, and i live in Australia. I'd like to see new straps here too. If Canada and The United States get them, so should the rest of the world tbh.

    finally got an answer from nintendo uk - apparently you have to email wiiwriststrap@codestorm.co.uk giving your name and address and # of new straps you need.

    and yes the first UK wiis did ship with the old straps rather than the UK toughened ones!

    I just requested 4 wrist straps, not that I own more then 2 wiimotes, and not like I'll break the first ones, but hey... now I got me a couple of souvenir keychain/cellphone Nintendo straps.
