    Lots of reports of weird happenings. It works for the DS, but the wii just needs a router..... Maybe if the dongle cost a LOT less than $30

    I agree. Avoid the Dongle at all costs. There have been waaay too many reports and complaints about this product, so it is much better to just purchase a Wireless router instead.

    It's not a good plan to get the dongle, not just because of bad reports because why would you pay that much money for a product that has such limited uses? For a bit more, you can have a full wireless router setup that you can use with any 802.11 device. It's just far smarter.

    I chime in on an extra controller or two. Consider getting a wii points card as a stocking stuffer, a classic controller if not two for SNES/N64 games.

    I'd also consider rechargeable batteries or a charge station

    Point taken, however what I meant is that these are the cables commonly referred to as "RCA" cables.

    I was going to suggest this. But keep in mind that young kids have no ties with nintendo classics, and many are too spoiled by modern tech to appreciate older games for their superior fun qualities.

    Unless your kids have had some exposure to N64 and back, then just wait until they actually ask for these before spending 40$ US on a points card and controller.

    I wouldnt recomend that since you want the feel of the wii first and so you have basic knowledge. First get the basics such as 4 controllers (and nunchcuks), component cables, and probably the best bet is the router and if you ever think of getting a laptop you got wireless internet right there. But about the charge station and wii points card you should really get those yet. First have the wii for about a week and get wii points card a classic controller and maybe a wireless sensor bar.
