View Full Version : Wii Games for a 4 and 5yo?

Just wondering if anyone has some experience with Wii games for my 4 and 5yo daughters. I'd like to get them one each for Christmas, but I don't know which ones. I could go off of the ratings, but I want some real people's experience. Preferably ones that aren't to new and cost $50+! lol

World of Zoo is fun and cute, especially if they like animals. :) (Plus, it's not too pricey either.)

It's definitely a game geared toward younger children, and you can't really lose. I couldn't say how long it'd hold their attentions for... but if they like animals, it'll probably keep them captivated for a while. (The PC version is only $5 too, so it could even make for a nice stoking stuffer.)

SimAnimals, which is really similar, is around the same price. Of the two, I think a 4 and 5 year old would have a better time with World of Zoo.

Almost any of the MySims games are great (but stay away from MySims Racing and MySims Party). Like World of Zoo, you can't lose, and it's fun, cute, and a game I feel they'd enjoy for a while. (Out of all the MySims games, I recommend Kingdom the most.)

Check out some youtube videos of both games to see what you think they'd like more :) I don't think either of those games are multiplayer though, but I think your kids would enjoy them.

Sounds great! Thanx!

Intrigued by the MySim recommendations. I love The Sims 3. I've never played any of the MySims myself, but I have heard from other moms that their kids love them too.

It will cost you about $50, but my kids (4 and 7) LOVE Mario Kart. The steering wheels are optional.

My 4yo loves Mario Party 8. I did just get Just Dance for my 8yo and Im sure the 4yo will be in there trying to get low with it. They love the wii.
