...but if you don't, there are better ones out there. This skin does it's job well, protecting the Wii Fit Board, but other skins with silicone raised nubs in the foot area for both traction and placement outperform this. I bought this for the color, not for the glow capability; had I known that similarly priced skins offer the textured foot area, I might purchased differently...more info
- Wii Fit Clear Silicone Sleeve - a big disappointment
I was very excited to get a silicone sleeve for my Wii Fit balance board with cold weather coming and wanting to be able to wear socks without slipping. It has a number of places underneath the board to attach it (which one would think should hold it in place). Unfortunately, the sleeve slides all over the board, particularly during activities that involve moving on the board such as the hula hoop, for example. I have tried it with bare feet and with socks, and it makes no difference. The only advantage is in certain yoga positions, it allows you to grip it with your bare feet a little better. I wish I hadn't invested the money in this item!...more info
- save your board
a cute cover for your WII board. it does not slip however does stretch if pulled from behind - pink is a great color to introduce the concept of WII to younger girls - mine (ages 2 and 4) now love it...more info
- Glow in the Dark Wii Fit Sleeve
Be very careful when installing, because it is thin and can easily rip. Attracts a lot of lint, dust, etc. Does glow in the dark~! ...more info
- Gets the job done but does not hold its place well
This sleeve does a good job of protecting the balance board and creating a non stick surface. It wraps around the corners, not the entire board. I wish it would have wrapped fully around the center of board. The problem I have is that with some Wii Fit exercises the sleeve can stretch and bunch under your foot. Usually the two snaps on the back by the power button come out of place making the sleeve some what loose....more info
- Reviewing the cover, not the game...decieiving question above.
This review is for the cover that I bought.....the game is questioned above...but my son bought it quite some times ago...so I can't answer questions about the game actually. BUT the cover is softa nd durable and feels YUMMY on your footsies!...more info
- Does Its Job
It protects the board from getting dirty and is very easy to put on the balance board. I have had no problems with it. ...more info
- Nice addition to the Balance Board
This product makes a nice surface on the board. Keeps your feet from slipping as easily!...more info
- Good Cover
I have placed this on my own board and a neighbor's board. Both times the sleeve went on without a problem, just use a little care and take your time. Is it thin? Well yes as it should be to just cover the board. To me the main benefit is that the board does not get dirty and it gives a little extra slip resistance for us. Overall does what it should at a low price....more info
- A Useful Product
This silicone sleeve is pretty nice. For games where you put your hands on the board, it really helps. But personally, I overlooked the fact that since I have three dogs in my house that shed and the sleeve attracts dog hair. So stepping on and off really gets it covered. It's more comfortable, but I have to clean it up often. If your house is furry-pet free, then this would be better for you than it is for me. Overall, a good product that serves it's purpose....more info
- Don't waste your money
I bought one in pink from a store for the same price and, although it fit perfectly, it bunches under my feet when they slide on the balance board (as when Hoola-hooping). If you want to keep your balance board clean, just wipe it down periodically with a damp paper towel, and use a can of compressed air to get the dust and particles out of the crevices....more info
- Wii Fit Balance Board Sleeve
Have had it about 4 weeks now. Works great. Has all the right holes for everything that sticks out like the feet and the activation button. Little nubs on the sleeve fit tightly into screw holes on the back of the board keeping the sleeve in place and worry free.
Heard about problems with the sleeve tearing during installation so I took my time and didn't just stretch the sleeve indiscriminately. In this way, I encountered no installation problems.
Picked 'green' because it glows in the dark...no other color concerns....more info
- No Slipping
With your silicone cover if you really like your Wii board this adds padding and keeps you from slipping if you want to play on it in your stocking feet...more info
- Not much to it.
It came very fast. It helps to keep from siding on the board and I'm glad I decided to finally get it. The only problem I have with it is how it attaches to the board underneath. It has little pieces sticking out to go in the holes underneath to hold the edges on. It works fine until you slide the board on carpet and the edges come out. Not a big deal and it would not stop me from buying it again or one for someone else....more info
- Fits Great!!
The sleeve goes over the Wii fit board perfectly! My daughter loves that she has a pink board now and I love that it is protected and has better grip. The sleeve fits over it without any bunches or folds. I highly recommend it!...more info
- Ripped While Putting On The Sleeve
The sleeve ripped while putting it on the balance board. The rip occurred near the opening for one of the balance board legs. I was careful putting the sleeve on the balance board after reading the reviews. Unfortunately the quality of the sleeve got the best of me....more info
- pros and cons
it helps a lot with traction and keeping the board clean, but there are these little nubs where your feet go that kind of hurt. maybe i have sensitive feet because i havent heard anyone else say anything about them. i would suggest people to look for one that has a slightly rougher surface at the feet rather than the nubs....more info
The sleeve fit perfectly, no problems. I just wish the blue was dark like in the picture. The sleeve is a very, very pale blue....more info
- good product
After reading some of the reviews, I thought I was getting a piece of Saran Wrap or something similar :) But instead the product is durable and fit perfectly....more info
- A must have....though I recommend a different color
If you have a balance board and don't want to risk slipping, this is a must have (I don't even have to take off my socks with this). It helps prevent the board from getting dirty as well as prevents slipping (falling during rhythm step is your own fault). The cover is easy to wipe off with a damp cloth, though I recommend getting a different color (like black) if you have pets or girls with long hair because the hair will stick to the silicone and looks, well, ugly... Check for sales of silicone sleeves, you can get them as low as four bucks so if you want to just toss them out when they get too dirty, it's not a big deal. Overall, I highly recommend getting a sleeve to protect your balance board investment and prevent slipping....more info
- Glow in the dark skin for the wii fit board
This skin fits the wii board snug and goes on easy, however it tears just by pulling it out of the original box, where I use to transport back and forth on the weekends. I would like to see a skin that does not tear so easy....more info
- Wii fit balance board cover
I love it! Alot softer on the feet and just makes it look better! Plus mine glows in the dark, so we like to use it with the lights off!!...more info
- Not true blue
This cover is not as blue as it appears in the photo. It is clear with a blue tint....more info
I bought this because our FIT board kept getting dirty. Once recieved, it worked great! It was thicker material that never seemed like it was going to rip... contrary to what other people have reviewed, so I seem to think that the thinness was possibly a certain batch or these people did not know what they were doing.
Moving on, I have no qualms with this cover. It even has "screw hole plugs" that go inside the bottom of your bords holes so that the cover stays into place.
One of the best uses of $3 I have ever spent. Great product, highly reccommend....more info
- Nice product, if used carefully!
With all of the use that my Wii Balance Board gets, my family thought we'd invest in a protective silicone sleeve, to avoid our board becoming dirty, scarred, or damaged in general. We priced around, read some reviews, and tried to pick a brand with a decent reputation for quality sleeves.
My only concern with this sleeve, is how thin it felt, when trying to wrap it around the balance board. I'd read other customer reviews about their sleeves ripping when placed on the board, so I was extra careful about pulling or stretching too hard, when attempting to make it fit.
Slide the cover on very carefully, and watch the seams and edges when placing it on your balance board. Taking a few extra seconds to make sure you're not putting too much stress on the silicone sleeve, is going to be a lot easier than having to return a ripped product.
When placed properly on the board, it protects your Wii Fit investment, and provides a workout experience that lets you better balance and pose during your program exercises. I also recommend picking up a pair of Yoga toe socks to wear while on the board, for added comfort, support, and stability.
In short, be careful when installing the sleeve. You'll regret it, if you don't!...more info
- No problem here
I bought this when it was on sale for [...] thinking that if it ripped, no big deal... not out much. But, I had no problem installing and have used the board many times since with no problem....more info
- Still working great after six months, even with toddler abuse!
The sleeve does the job of cushioning the board slightly (which is important to me because I have rheumatoid arthritis) and keeping grime from accumulating on the balance board itself. The glow in the dark sleeve was about $5 more than the other colors when I bought it, but I'm a sucker for anything that glows in the dark! (Yes, I'm a kid at heart.)
I'm not sure what the reviewers who complained about their sleeves ripping did to it, since I can't see how it would happen. The silicone isn't thick, but it covers the board fine without stretching much or even beginning to tear. My two-year-old has tugged on it to try to take it off the board several times, and she can destroy almost anything, but it's still going strong!...more info
- Highly recommend this sleeve!!
Great addition to a great and fun fun product. The sleeve adds security to your footing as you go through you routines. The kids (they are a little more active) are able to do everything needed on the Fit Board without slipping off and injuring themselves. It's a great item for the money. The installation is easy and very secure....more info
- WARNING - can RUIN your Balance Board!
The moment I put it on my Balance Board, the Board would not work properly -- it responded as if someone were standing on it, even when no one was there. Removing the sleeve did not clear the problem. The Nintendo rep. I called said that they have been having problems with sleeves, and they are not licensed by Nintendo. I am having to ship my board back to be fixed.
Nice idea, but it's a big risk. My friend has one, no problems. I try one, instant breakdown. Danger, Will Robinson!...more info
- Does what it's suppose to do
I got this cover to protect the surface of the balance board and it does just that. We have had no problems with it slipping and, in fact, you wouldn't even know it was there - what more can you want?...more info
- Protect Your Feet
I got this for a friend of mine whom we play and battle on the Wii Fit games and weight loss activities. I noticed that after awhile that the mat tends to look unsanitary and i wanted to do something that would make all 10 of us feel better while playing this game and sometimes using our hands. Everyone loves it and it gives the board more pizaz if I can use that one ^_^...more info
- Not that bad
After reading all the other reviews, I didn't think this was a bad product. No rips or tears and we are pretty rough on our board. It even survived a trip to Florida for T-Day. My only complaint is that it is smooth. It makes it easy to clean, but isn't as non-slip as I was hoping for....more info
