WiiWaa: Fun for kids, coma for animal controller

To play WiiWaa, the user bounces and shakes a stuffed monster around as the onscreen version moves in kind. It's a cute concept, but we feel kind of bad for the puppet who's forced to swallow a gadget and then get shaken into a coma.

Wiimote gone missing? You might want to check inside that orange and purple stuffed monster in your kid's room. If Bobby's been playing the interactive game WiiWaa, he had to shove the controller down the monster's throat. The player bounces and slingshots the little guy around as an onscreen version moves in kind across a colorful landscape of forests and bridges. It's a cute concept, but we feel kind of bad for the puppet who's forced to swallow a gadget and then get shaken into a stupor.

WiiWaa is a creation of Swedish game developer Zoink Games, though Zoink's currently sparse site doesn't post a release date--only a video of the stuffed animal getting repeated concussions.
