We have another exciting product test for you - we are looking for 40 Mumsnetters who don't already have a Wii at home but would like to take part in "My First Wii Challenge" with Nintendo.

Nintendo say they "are keen to offer Wiis to 40 MN families to encourage them to spend fun time together as a family as well as give them the opportunity to test out some great games". If you already have a Wii, please look out for the feedback thread for this project as Nintendo would like to hear your views too (in exchange for a prize draw grin).

If you are selected for the test you'll be sent a Wii console, handsets and nunchucks for all the family plus the following games:

uDraw GameTablet with uDraw Studio
Mario Kart
Kirby's Epic Yarn, and
Just Dance Jnrs

We'd then like you to take part in 4 weekly challenges with the Wii. This will involve playing with one game per week and adding your feedback to a thread on Mumsnet.

*The challenge will start week commencing 4 July and last for 4 weeks - so please only apply if you are able to add feedback every week in July*.

Ideally we're looking for MNers in the UK with at least 2 children.

After the challenge is completed and you have added at least 4 lots of feedback you will be able to keep the console and games for your family to enjoy.

In addition, we will need 10 of the families selected to film themselves and their family playing with the Wii. These videos will be used on the Nintendo pages on Mumsnet in the autumn and possibly elsewhere (they will be hosted on YouTube). If you are willing to undertake the video element please indicate this on the form link below. You will be supplied with a FlipCam (which will need to be returned). You will be briefed on filming requirements but it shouldn't be too onerous.

To sign up please add your details here

Good luck and many thanks

Drat. I would really like to try a wii out (specifically a wii fit) but we only have one child and he's not really old enough to use one (and we wouldn't let him play games anyway at 3). Sniff.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 20-Jun-11 11:41:39

ILoveTIFFANY - you are indeed! thanks

IwishIwasmoreorganised Mon 20-Jun-11 11:59:31

Blatherskite Mon 20-Jun-11 14:45:30

Have applied. I've been desperate for a Wii for years but DH is too tight to buy one. I have so many things crossed right now, I have no idea how I'm going to pick DS up from preschool grin

DebiTheScot Mon 20-Jun-11 15:52:47

This is a great test. I'd like one but am not prepared to commit myself to spending all that money without having a proper play on it first. So fingers crossed I get picked.

CoffeeGoneColdAgain Mon 20-Jun-11 17:51:35

Good luck one and all! smile

fruitshootsandheaves Mon 20-Jun-11 21:28:10

StrawberryMewMew Mon 20-Jun-11 21:38:08
