    I love the combination of the snoopy band aid eye patch, the cold look of stern concentration on her face, and the controller raised in apparent victory over the fallen brother/victim in the background. Cool photo.

  2. MamaLady says:

    My boy LOVES the Brave Little Toaster series.
    Hope she’s ok.

  3. Karen says:

    Awwww, hope it wasn’t too serious and won’t keep her from playing her wii games.

  4. Carolynn from Western Australia says:

    Could some kind person out there explain to me what wii is ??
    I have no idea.

    I don’t have kids, maybe that’s the problem. :)

    Love Carolynn xx :)

  5. mimbles (from NSW) says:

    It’s a gaming console, the Nintendo Wii, and it has wireless controllers with accelerometers in them which allow gamers to control the action on-screen through movement rather than button pushing.

    That’s some intense concentration going on there, gaming is a serious business!

  6. Denise says:

    OMG that makes our injuries, there have been many, seem like nothing. That poor kid. So glad to see she’s still working it though.

  7. SabrinaT says:

    Perseverance!!! What a great life lesson.. OH, how my boys want a Wii!!

  8. Jennifer says:

    We have the same bandaids…or did before my people went through the box of 200 in record time. Oddly enough there weren’t that many injuries.

  9. Karen Vogel says:

    Maybe you should sue the company - I see college money in your future….

  10. Maddy says:

    A bunch of boys (age 8) were playing wii boxing at our house the other night and I really thought we’d have an injury. Lots of punch-punch-punching and standing too close to one another. Thankfully, all escaped injury. But I could totally see it happening what with all the poking and the swinging of the wii remote.

    Love the photo of your little one as she soldiers on bravely post injury. The wii-ing must go on!

  11. Christine says:

    DOH! I still think we’ll be getting it for Christmas … but I’ll save enough to include face masks!

  12. Dana says:

    Classic picture, but darn, what did she do to her eye?

  13. Denise says:

    We have the brave little toaster on VHS.
    I dont know how to work the VCR…. Maybe goodwill?
    Thanks for the reminder.

  14. Another Susan says:

    Living in a house full of boys, I would have expected something more severe! Can I assume a WII controller flew threw the air and hit her in the eye? Poor baby. I hope her eye heals quickly!

  15. Another Susan says:

    I should really up the caffeine before I try to type … LOL @ myself

    threw s/b through

  16. Kellan says:

    This is a priceless picture - so cute!

  17. Alissa says:

    my daughter is currently wearing that target skirt.

  18. misty says:

    so funny… After having our Wii since the day they came out, we just recieved our first injury too. My daughter smacked up the controller while playing “Carnival Games” and busted it on her head. :(

  19. Beth F. says:

    Oh Wii are very familiar with that top of injury.

    Very.

    Your picture depicts the beauty of a Wii - no matter the beating, you keep on playing.

  20. Mommy mommy says:

    Aw, poor thing!

  21. carrie says:

    Oh no! What happened? It was the Wii, wasn’t it?

  22. fidget says:

    this is like a pint size version of the BlogHer injury

  23. Heather B. says:

    Awwwww. Poor girl.

  24. Manic Mommy says:

    There is no eye in Wii!

  25. Mary Jo says:

    You can’t post that picture and NOT tell the story behind it!

  26. debby says:

    you should definitely submit this to:

  27. Shash says:

    OMG, I hurt myself laughing over the title of this post!

    Sorry about the injury, but I know how she feels - those games are addictive!!!!

    Such a brave little soldier.

    Shash

  28. qtpies7 says:

    I can only imagine the injuries we will have when I finally, finally win a Wii. My boys are wild, and my oldest dd is a vicious competitor!

  29. brit says:

    Seriously though, wasn’t that the weirdest movie ever? My three year old is obsessed with it and those people were obviously doing hard core drugs. And since they aren’t sharing I have no idea what is happening in the movie…

  30. Leeann says:

    ROFLMAO!!!
    The picture was funny but the caption was even funnier.
    You crack me up!

  31. jen says:

    Great picture - even better caption.
    I hope the doctoring didn’t take too much of her wii time - or were you able to do it as she played???

  32. Anna says:

    Wii! Ha! Funny! ;-)

  33. maliavale says:

    OMG Brave Little Toaster. Best movie ever.

    So, are we having NoBloShoeMo this year? Because I just got some new pairs to show off. ;-)

  34. Danielle says:

    You must post more details. Seriously. I need more.

    Check this out. You are not alone.

  35. Heather says:

    Ouch! The look on her face is priceless. ;)

  36. Isabel Kallman says:

    oh, poor thing. please kiss her boo-boo for me.

    Before submitting this pic to wiihaveaproblem, don’t forget to watermark it…ha!

  37. Jaime says:

    Oh man! I hope that she is alright. She looks like she recovered enough to keep playing ;)
    Oh by the way I love her shirt. My little girl is running around in the same one.
    Jaime

  38. Grace says:

    That is funniest photo ever! I love the patch AND the pose your daughter is in. Such concentration!

  39. Single Mom With Tiny Tot says:

    hm…this image makes me even more terrified of wii than i was before…does she still have an eyeball under there?

  40. reen says:

    It looks like her brother there on the floor behind her might be the defeated one. She has chutzpah!

    And isn’t it hard to wii using one eye?

  41. Lori says:

    She looks adorable! And hilarious! At first I thought she had a broken finger too.

  42. Christy says:

    Hey Chris…I just saw that Nintendo is offering free “wii-mote jackets” made of silicone to protect the wii-motes and little heads.

    Go Here to get them to ship you a set! http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/jacket/jacketrequest.jsp
