Hi!I'm considering buying a Wii game which should be mainly for my 5 years old daughter, to christmas. It should be a game where she can entertain herself on her own, therefore should it be a game which doesn't require any reading skills. I'm also curious to hear your opinions and experiences from games you could easily play together with your child and also enjoy playing it.Sofar we've been playing Mario Galaxy together, where she holds the wii-remote to control jumping, and hiting enemies while I hold the nunchuck walking with Mario. She also enjoys playing Punch-Out!, there she made it till King Hippo on her own, but now it's geting to hard for her.Thanks in advance!

...If its still around, try Elebits. Was a fun little game I enjoyed back then when it first came out.
I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Forgot about Boom Blox and Epic Yarn...the Rabbid games were just awesome! xD (my favorite was the first one though)

I'm betting both of the Kirby games would be good choices, especially Epic Yarn.
I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Really anything Mario. Excite Truck is very fun game for kids and Wii Music, of course.
Just for you.

the Rabbid games
Those Rabbids are gross and annoying. I can't wait to shoot them in Killer Space Freaks for the Wii U next year.

Donkey Kong is too tough for a kid, and all those fetch quests in Epic Mickey are going to confuse anyone who's not an avid reader. Small kids will get lost and discouraged playing that game alone. I'd mention De Blob or The Munchables but they're both sort of text heavy too. More text than Mario Galaxy anyway.
I'd agree with everyone posting Kirby's Epic Yarn. It's the perfect platformer for kids. While Mario platformers are pretty challenging, Kirby's Epic Yarn is not. You can't even die. It's a pretty girly game too, with its emphasis on sewing, bead collecting, shopping, and interior decorating.
These are some good family games too.Wii Sports Resort or at least Wii Sports (you probably already have) Lego Star Wars III: the Clone Wars (Lego Harry Potter is too complicated for kids)Pokemon Rumble (1500 points WiiWare) Kids do have trouble swapping Pokemon if they can't read (text menu)Bubble Bobble Plus (600 points WiiWare)

Wii SportsNew Super Mario Brothers WiiSuper Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are both great and fairly easyMario Kart Wii, I know plenty of little kids who have a blast on thereWhile I haven't played Kirby's Epic Yarn, I hear it's very simple and easy, as well as being a great game, worth taking a lookAnd finally, Just Dance (any of them) is fairly easy and intuitive.

After reading the opening post carefully, clearly there is only one game that is appropriate for this situation.

Surprisingly, my little brother really enjoyed Pikmin 2, even though I assumed that that would have been too difficult for him.
But for a 5 year old, I would recommend...Mario Kart WiiKirby's Epic YarnNew Super Mario Bros.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions!@sillygostly:I heard from many that Animal Crossing is a good games for small children.
You say: "Animal Crossing: City Folk/Let's Go To The City (this could help with your daughter's reading)",
Do you mean it's a game where you don't need to read to play? Bcuz it's not just the problem that she can't read yet, she speaks swedish which is not included as a language in the Wii settings, so she would'nt understead anything anyway.

Yes, the Animal Crossing games do require reading ability, but if she cannot read English at all, then perhaps you'd best steer clear of the series, at least until she could read picture books on her own.

This, plus Klonoa x10. I'd totaly mention Wario Land Shake it! but it's a little more complex then the rest.

Plus you don't want her to be influenced by Wario's greed for money. Kids are so impressionable, especially at that young of an age.
