@Anti-Matter Sorry, I've only just seen your reply to me as I didn't get a notification when you made it. Thanks for your input.

In the meantime I ended up getting second hand copies of My Sims and My Sims Kingdom as they both seemed to have reasonable ratings and some positive words. Only done the tutorial for My Sims so far, but it seemed more playable than Animal Crossing to me, so I look forward to finding some time to do more with it.

@Darknyht My only thought is that I've been meaning to get a copy too cos my kid loves Ghostbusters, and it's rated fairly well.

Yo !
About My Sims & My Sims Kingdom Wii, well.....
To be honest, those games are still FAR Away from Awesome than Dragon Quest Builder / Portal Knights / Animal Crossing New Leaf. Both of them are Decent games, Nice idea but you know EA, they put their Half-Baked efforts. Let me tell you the reasons.

My Sims Wii for me like a Prototype of Portal Knights / Dragon Quest Builder. You play as either Boy or Girl who have to Restore the town so more Sims will come back to the town. But, the Objective on My Sims Wii are just TWO Things, Collect the essences and Making the furnitures, NOTHING Else. Also, you need to befriend with Commercial / Uber Sims to unlock their outfits. I can tell you on the first 20 minutes gameplay it looks fun but after you invite more Sims to live on your town, you will feel bored due to Two Objections i mentioned above, Collect the essences and Make furnitures for them. There is NO Mini games, there is NOTHING else you can do but keep collecting essences + making furnitures. Good idea but still Too Weak if compared with Dragon Quest Builder / Portal Knights so i gave it 6 / 10 score due to Poor gameplay features. Sorry....

And about My Sims Kingdom Wii, the game is similar with My Sims Wii but the only difference are :
1. No longer custom design of the furnitures, just only recolor the premade furnitures.
2. Fewer NPCs and they have predetermined to be stay on specific island.
3. Need Mana Power to build the building blocks, furnitures, etc.
The game was quite good at the beginning but pretty rubbish after postgame because there is NOTHING you can do but wandering around, create another furnitures, redesign the Outside buildings, etc. No Mini games at all, so your Objections here just very limited. I gave it 5 / 10 due to Lack of proper Objections.

Well, you have bought My Sims & My Sims Kingdom Wii. Have fun with them, keep them neatly. For additional My Sims games, you can try My Sims Party & My Sims Agents NDS version, NOT the Wii version because the Wii version of them are Pretty Rubbish in term of gameplay and after postgame. My Sims games are designed Very different on Wii & NDS version, like they were Two different games with same titles.

Well, if you like My Sims, don't forget to consider Dragon Quest Builder 2 & Animal Crossing Switch in the future. I have a feeling if Animal Crossing Switch will have some features like Dragon Quest Builder, judging from the word of "smashing" from what Tom Nook said from Nintendo Direct 14 Sep 2018.

it may not be a "game" recommendation, but I have seen dozens of examples of people disassembling their Wii's and converting it to small portable units, some are pretty awesome, the "Altoids" one is ridiculous, but the others are actually very cool, I think they should really roll with it

@gcunit I remember Mysims being a really big thing for a few years before vanishing completely without a trace. I guess that's EA for ya.

@Anti-Matter Thanks for your detailed thoughts on the My Sims games - shame they came too late to stop me buying them No problem though, only paid a couple of quid for them, and I like seeing things for myself. A pity though, because I was enjoying my first 15 minutes of My Sims.

Well, surprisingly if you play The Sims 4, the MySims characters such as Chaz, Buddy, Chef Geno, Poppy, Violet, Morcubus, Tobor, etc made a CAMEO Return as figurines.

Any recommendations on theme park games for Wii? Or maybe another easy going simulator for someone who used to like Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 and only owns a Wii?

edit: I think it's wise to tag @Anti-matter and @gcunit in this, now that I'm reading some earlier posts

@toiletduck I hear that Thrillville off the Rails is good, but I doubt you'll find a theme park game on any platform that lives up to RCT1.
