When we got home I carefully put it on her Wii-remote but, when it came time to replace the batteries I had to remove the glove and that is when it happened; the glove ripped!
After this tearing of the skin occurred I spent some time cruising the web and looking for Wii controller gloves that were similar in appearance to order a new one. The more I looked the more I began to understand that we must have purchased an early model that has since been discontinued.

The clear problem with this model is that rather than use a complete skin to cover the Wii-remote they opted to use a partial skin and where the heavier rubber was used they just sort of glued them together! This resulted in a very weak bond and when enough pressure was exerted to get the skin-tight glove on, it ripped.
Looking at the tear
If they had used a full skin and layered the heavier rubber on top of it this would probably not have happened. Before you buy one of these special multi-colored Wii controller gloves I suggest you find out if Nintendo has fixed this problem. Why do I blame Nintendo? If you look on the packaging, you can see the Nintendo Quality Seal.
