"I have received product courtesy of Nintendo, but all thoughts and opinions are my own"
I am so excited to share with you all that I am now an official Nintendo Blogger. With that comes goodies that we will share via my blog and social outlets. I am stoked. Check out the first package that we received! My 9 year old has a Wii, so when we received the Wii U, we were thrilled to upgrade!
There are several things I would like to tell you about the Wii U! 
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set with DLC Wii U bundle $299.99*MSRP This Wii U deluxe set comes with the Mario Kart 8 game pre-installed, plus two packs of Mario Kart 8 bonus DLC. It also comes with the following accessories.
You can also use Wii controllers because they are compatible! Which is a plus because we have so many of them. I love that it came with Mario Kart 8 pre-installed. We play the heck out of this game! My favorite feature has the be the game pad. It is just neat! You can connect to the internet to use online features. Another great option is creating your own Mii Character!!! We can personalize them to look like all of us!
You can also watch videos on YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video and Netflix. You can also shop and buy games and more! It is just so fun! You can browse the web and add friends to play with! They have classic and new games too! Another feature that we love and we are still getting used to is the amiibo accessories. Tap any amiibo accessory to the near-field communication (NFC) reader on your Wii U GamePad controller to score all kinds of bonuses in compatible games. SO NEAT! They can be used on multiple Nintendo products too. Purchase the Wii U at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Walmart and Toys R Us. 
We also received Mario Tennis Ultra Smash and Animal Crossing amiibo festival. First let's talk Mario Tennis! This game is so fun! It plays up to 4 people and is rated E for everyone. The SRP is $49.99.

Along with the fun and dynamic gameplay known to the franchise, surprise your opponents with a new move to the series, the Jumpshot, which sends the ball flying down the court. Change the sport up with new Mega Battles, using the Mega Mushroom to gain an advantage over the competition. Claim your spot in Mario Tennis lore in singles (1v1) or doubles (2v2) as you play with and against family, friends or the CPU using returning and new characters to the series.
