It has been a while since I fire up my Nintendo Wii after the few years.
I recently decided to do so, only to discover that one of my WiiMote died, because of stupid alkaline battery leaks.
Refusing to purchase a new Wiimote at regular price, I found clones online and decided to give it a go.
There are many clones available and modern ones come with Plus integrated into the same small body.
However, I decided to go for a normal one since I already had the Plus from my earlier Wiimote.
The material feels very close to original. However, is hard to tell.
The clone comes with an identical handstrap with a cheaper feel.
The clone adapts perfectly well with the original Plus.
Compared to Original Wiimote
At first glance, it is hard to tell both apart.
However, it is apparent that the "A" button come in a darker blue shade.
The "Wii"text is also missing.
"Nintendo" text has been completely left out.
Interestingly, everything looks identical but the original battery cover does not fit well into the clone.
For S$13.80, rather than paying S$45, I must say the clone is a damn good deal!
The clone functions exactly the same as the original, with sound and vibration.
The clone comes with a silicone skin, but the make is poorer and stink of chemical. Hence, I chucked it.
The "A"button is tad less sensitive than the original though. It works, but requires a full depress and tapping will not register the command.
Time to get some Wii action!

Baby High Chair
It is time for my boy to start joining us at the dining table!
3-position recline seat.
Height adjustment to 5 different heights.
5-point harness with cushion.
Collapsable chair and tray can be stowed away at the rear.
Tray can be completely removed.
Comes with a foot rest for bigger kids.
Most high chairs allow the baby to seat up till 36 months. It is the same for this. However, this gb with love High Chair is narrower compared to any other brands out in the market. We chose this because of the price and also it is narrower. How contrary? Yes, it keeps the baby more snug and lesser crawling out.
