We got a Wii and a Wii fit for Christmas. We've never used this before and Hanlin and Lily are having a tough time with figuring it out. Does anyone know if there are games that would help them figure out the controller and also the Wii fit board?

Are there games specially for 5 year olds??

Krista,

The Diego game we got for Lucy last year is great. Lisa can even sort of play along (she just turned three!) We got Mario Kart for xmas and all four of us play that (although Lisa never finishes she still has fun!) Our Wii came with sports I think, and Lucy can do all the sports in that (bowling, baseball, boxing and golf - although she has trouble with the fine controls of the golf - ie. putting!)

I think there is a Dora game and a Ni Hao Kailan game that are similar to the Diego game we have.

Hope that's a help. We LOVE our Wii!!

Hey,

They are tough to find. My girls have Dora, but Wen isn't interested. My guys really like Mario Kart - while it would be tough to win at thier age, it's fun to just drive around...

Wii play is a great game to learn how to use the wii-mote. There's 10 games on it and they each use the remote a different way. It also comes with an extra remote. Some games would be a little hard for Lily and Hanlin but they are very fun to play.

Da Blob is a great Wii game. It involves painting and color mixing too. It's very active, but also very creative. Much like your family!

Carloe told me that you and she have been talking. :-) She's fantastic.

Happy New Year Krista! I hope you, Frank, and the kids have a fantastic 2010.

Krista, add another to list. We've been playing the wii winter olympics from vancouver. Much easier than the summer olympics were for the girls. Lucy and Lisa were both winning gold medals in snow boarding and bobsledding! Lisa is only 3! (I hesitate to say that it might be smart enough to know it's a little one playing - wii board they sit/stand on it and she is only 26lbs! So the game might just be smart enough to make it less challenging for the little ones...either that or they are just better at it than me and David...that is entirely possible too! LOL!)
