3 Ways To Customize Your Nintendo Wii Fit & Give It Character!

Wouldn't it be great to customize your Nintendo Wii Fit, the way you would your mobile phone? Install a unique theme, give it a brand new look and let it shine with character? The fact is if you're willing to spend some time brainstorming how you want your Nintendo Wii Fit to look; customizing it isn't as difficult or expensive as you thought. Here are 3 ways you can do that:

(1) Spruce Up Your Balance Board With A Designer Silicon Cover
Yes, one of the easiest ways to give your Nintendo Wii Fit a refreshing look is to clad your balance board with a designer silicon cover. In an instance, you can transform your plain looking balance board into a patriotic national flag, part of a leopard's body or simply a free styled manifestation of your artistic expression. Not only does the silicon cover add an air of sophistication to your Wii Fit, it also protects the balance board from your perspiration and dirt. The non slip nature of the silicon material also prevents accidents.

In case you're wondering, nope, such silicon covers aren't expensive at all. Due to the popularity of the Nintendo Wii Fit, the supply of silicon covers have readily increased and helped to slash retail prices. You can easily get a nice functional cover sometimes for as low as $1 on eBay!

(2) Top It Up With A Great Wii Skin or Case

If having a designer styled silicon cover is not enough for you take this a step further by dolling up your Wii console & remote control with customized skins. There are some pretty ingenious ideas on such and one of the most hilarious I've seen is the Kentucky Fried Chicken (“KFC”) theme. Apparently, someone was creative enough to design the remote control custom skin in the form of a fried chicken drumstick, with the KFC logo proudly displayed on the Wii console! Although it was just a Photoshopped picture, well, who knows if that would really turn out to be a best seller?

(3) Customize Your Mii Avatar

Miis are the little avatars that you create on the Wii to be used in various games and configurations. Mii, pronounced as “me” are in essence your graphical representation in the Wii world. They look like Manga versions of the characters in the comic "Peanuts" and can be modified using a series of system features to create a broad range of variation. To add some spice into your Wii Fit experience, you might want to try changing your Mii Avatar to something that represents your true personality! And if you're game for it, there are some premium services offered on the Internet to create custom made Mii avatars for the price of a cup of Starbucks coffee! Well, that's not too high a price to pay for a unique expression of your individuality, isn't it?
