My eldest boy came to own a Lego Wii Remote when he was bought one for his birthday by one of my brothers. He loves Lego and also the Lego Wii games, he didn't realize that these remotes existed so he was very excited.
This remote is designed to work with the Nintendo Wii Console as a controller, it's not made by Nintendo, but another company who have permission from Lego to create it.
You get the main body of the Wii Remote, the wrist strap is included in this. 31 Lego Bricks that can be used to customize the Remote. A tile separator (very useful for protecting your finger tips) and two different coloured battery covers (red and blue).
**Customising the Wii Remote**
Changing the battery cover is easy - the same as a standard Wii Remote. The Lego pieces around the edge are fun, you don't actually get to build the remote, just customize and accessorize it with the little pieces. My boy really enjoys this and being able to change the look of the remote easily.
All the normal functions are what you would expect on a Wii Remote. Some of them have been moved around a little to accommodate the Lego pieces. We noticed that the sounds from the remote aren't quite the same quality as the Nintendo Remotes - a little crackly at times. The rumble/shaking effect works fine though.
It's compatible with Motion Plus and Nunchucks, we've had no problem with these. It didn't fair to well in my Zumba belt or hand weights however, it was awkward to put in, so we simply don't use it for those games.
It works very well generally. There's one Lego game where my son says that it doesn't respond properly in, but the other remotes do. It's a small part in the game, he's had no complaints otherwise.
Batteries last the same amount of time as they do in other Wii Remotes.
Available in some larger Supermarkets that stock games, I've seen this in Sainsburys and Asda. Also seen in Game. It's also available online on Amazon.
RRP of £19.99, I have seen it on offer for less.
It's a brilliant idea for a novelty remote, being able to change the pieces works very well in customising it. You can also add other Lego pieces on from your own collection. It loses Dooyoo star points in my opinion for poor sound quality, some play-ability issues and compatibility with some devices.
