Same for Littlest petshop,
gameplay like super mario 64 but easier
every time you beat a mini game you unlock a new adorable animal (though oddly it did stopped unlocking characters with about 3 to go) luckily my child moved on without being frustrated
This is a great thread. I have looking for games for my little girl who turned five today. There are not a lot of games that they can really enjoy playing. A lot of the games that are supposed to be for that age group are too hard to play or require a large amount of reading.
I agree. I have purchased a couple of games for my five year old and they are too advanced for that age group.
The new Batman Brave and the Bold is my 5yr olds new favorite...

Peppa pig no
Elmos a-z no
mario sports mix YES
final fantasy echoes of time co op with DS yes
I find games that use wii pointer are hard for the little ones some just dont grasp the concept <4 or 5. and progrsmmers allow the pointer to disappear off the screen where kids can't find it
Elmos a to z involves a lot of point and shoot. My 3 year just can't get it. Same with peppa pig and they are sooooo basic that by the time they are old enough to play the games are too young.
I tried to link batman B&B to DS version but could not get it to work. Different region games think, that looked like a good game for littlies to "help out"
I have linked wii final fantasy echoes to ds version that is great duo co op fun (but does not advance levels back in single player mode)
Best family game atm is mario sports mix, my 8 year old and I have not lost a match and neither has the youngun with a friend with no skill, great for casual play,BUT to complete game the skill level does increase significantly something all mario games do so well
Super mario galaxy
I see that my 12 year old brother is having trouble solving some missions in both of super mario so is not for 4-6 years games it is not so easy.
mario galaxy takes effort and lots of time no matter what age you are
I am much older than 12 and some of the levels I have had to redo over ten times to complete. Luckiliy to complete the game you only need approximately 80% of the stars (awarded for completing a level) to see get to the final boss fight. Often you can skip levels that you find hard (others may not). Getting every star is a whole other level of effort, ultimate reward and game longevity.

Nice list, there is a Peppa Pig 2 (PAL) on the web. Plays like the original without the farting birds. =)
I recommend anyone that has a 3-8 yr old to try Cosmic Family. This is an amazing game, which is not only fun for the child but fun to watch a child play. It really keeps everyone entertained with comedic skits intertwined w/a very deep learning experience. It has 3 levels of difficulty so any child can pick up and play. Most importantly it's extremely educational and has wonderful charm which keeps everything fun!! It has kids doing shape recognition, puzzles, painting, memory games and so much more, more, more!! Its designed specifically for younger children as early as pre-school. It's been amazing to watch a 3yr old play my wii w/such precision. I can't comment enough on how great this game has been in helping my child learn and it's a wonderful experience to see them become so intelligent at such a young age. Recommended for every single parent!
Edit: Basically if you love your child you'll get them Cosmic Family lol! J/k.

Just 3 pages in 2 years, come on parents, get the kids involed and play together! Lego, the best are Indiana #1 for a 4 yr old, #2 the controls of the whip are too much about pointing at a specific spot on the scrreen while holding the button, tedious for kids (I don't care for it much either), but they're better at 5, same for Batman and there is a dark feel to it, not bright and cheerful, Potter, same, a bit dark and more complicated. The new Pirates Lego is excellent for 5, some parts are harder for them to learn, but it's kids and Pirates! Mariokart of course, so wish they'd do a part 2! A Boy and his Blob belong here at 4 and up, Sonic All Star Racing, Sonic Colors, Mario Galaxy 2 is a huge fave, Spongebob Truth or Square..
