Come on, guys, preschoolers are allowed to have games aimed at them, too. You're not forced to buy this, so don't fill the comments with complaints about how bad this is, eh?

I actually think this looked quite nice. The guys who developed it took care in making sure it fit the audience. I say good on them for trying to expand the WiiWare market!

First off, finally a game targeted at this demographic!
I have a 2.5 yr old and never understood why there were no games for him on wiiware, when everything about the format seems to perfect.

PooYoos seems to be spot on at first impressions, the graphics are great and fun and the games seem to be just what we were looking for.
My only complaint, and this is a big one, is that it doesn't seem to support widescreen. what's up with that?
