I think Wii Avatars are really cute, especially if they actually look like you, it's like a little caricature of yourself. It occurred to me that it would be even better if you can have a figurine of your Mii. I noticed that there are a few places online were you can have your own Mii made but they cost around $50. So instead I bought some polymer clay and made my own.
If you know what your friends' Mii look like this can make a fun gift. Or you can make one of yourself and your partner/significant other holding hands for Valentine's Day or even use it as a wedding cake topper.
If you don't have a Wii system and wished you had a Mii there are several online Mii editors
you can use to create one.
