WINNIPEG - Nicole Araujo was looking for ideas for her son’s Wii-themed birthday last fall, but it’s safe to say she got a wee more involved than originally intended.

“My youngest son said for his birthday party he wanted to stay at home and have a Wii party,” Araujo said. “So I was online looking for ideas for decorating and for other activities to do, because I didn’t just want them playing Wii for three hours.”

Araujo’s search turned up a website for Curbside Game Box, which instantly grabbed her attention. The huge trailer, referred to as a mobile video game theatre that can be delivered to a client’s doorstep, features five big-screen TVs inside and two more outside.

“I thought it was really cool and if it was here I would totally rent that,” she said.
