My 4 year old son loves the Disney/Pixar CARS game! He just loves lightning McQueen and the other characters from the movie!

Give it a little time. My sons who just turned three last Sunday had a hard time when we first got it a few months ago, but now has the high score it almost every game. He actually beat all his cousins (ages 16-20) and uncles over christmas in bowling averaging around 200. He just loves it now, just takes a little practice and time to figure out the controllers. He also loves Mario Kart (that comes with one steering wheel). Almost all the games he can do with no problem as long as they don't require reading and are rated "E". We did get him the nerf sports equipment but he usually likes playing without it now, so they are kinda of a waste. We got a monthly game membership to blockbusters and are renting the games for a few days to see if he can do them before we buy them and found that really helps. Its kinda expensive but I found that it already saved us from spending $50 on a game he doesn't like. Hope this helps. Happy Holidays

We have a Wii and my 3.5 yr old doesn't play yet but my 6 yr old loves it. He loves the Wii Sports and Carnival Games and Mario Kart, which are more $$ - but if you live near a GameStop, they sell used games at a cheaper price (depending on the game). In fact, our local GameStop has a Buy 2 Get 1 Free now on used games and I know they have very girly ones (like Princess, etc). Kohl's also sells games that my son likes - fishing, Monster Trucks, Ben 10 - that are usually $19.99 but cheaper if you have a coupon. These games are usually a bit easier as well. Happy Shopping!

We got my 3-year old son a Diego Wii game for Christmas and he just loves it. It isn't too difficult and he has a lot of fun with it.
As far as your funds are concerned, you could try going to Game Stop. They sometimes have used games at a discounted price.

We also just received a Wii and we are loving it. My children are 3 and 6. My oldest loves all the games and we have finally found a game for the 3 year old. It is a safari game were you have to look for certain things and take pictures. My hushand has had to navigate but my 3 year old loves taking the pictures. I think he got the game at target and it was only $15.

We got WII for Christmas this year and our whole family is loving it!!! My 6 & 5 year olds love the games and can use the controls BUT my 3 year old son is content to watch. My 3 year old tries to play some of the sports games that came with it but it's difficult for him to control and needs help. Your 3 year may just be too young yet as is my 3 year old. Good luck!!!

I have heard from several sources that the Mario Cart game is great for everyone! I have a 4 year old (almost 5) and she is playing all the games like a champ! We just bought Mario Cart last night, so we will be trying it out today!
