Club Nintendo Fan

I have been an on and off fan of Nintendo.  I loved it during the 80’s and 90’s, but then in the early 2000’s I stopped playing video games and never even owned a GameCube.  But then when the Wii came out I had to get it because I wanted to play Mario Galaxy.  A few years later, I got a Nintendo DS because I was taking the subway and wanted something fun to keep me occupied.  I loved the DS, and still love it today.
Last year the 3DS came out, and I figured it was time for me to upgrade my handheld.  I was a little hesitant to buy one at first because the DS was poorly manufactured (it broke easily).  But I decided to get one when Super Mario 3D Land came out.  When I opened my 3DS I then joined Club Nintendo.  I think I was a member before, but I never took it seriously.
I think this was a great idea from Nintendo, but I just wish they would lower the cost of prizes, and put better prizes as well.  My first prize that I redeemed was this Blooper fan or Sensu.  It cost me 300 points, and once I ordered it, shipping was fast.  It comes in this nice felt pouch, and the fan is made out of paper and bamboo.  It’s a really great collectable and I love the minimalistic design of the fan (it reminds me of the great wave off Kanagawa).
