My kids accidentally did this, and now the Wii wont start up. ANy guesses if the console is fried, or the damage is localized to the power supply?

Any pointers to options/solutions on both situations would be really appreciated.

I would guess you probably only fried the power supply since it has it's own breaker/surge protection built into it. Easiest way to find out for sure would to take the console to a game retail store and see if they can test it or borrow another power supply from a friend and test it. Good luck! Hope it's not the console!
