Good for young kids

I got this game to play with my 4 year old daughter. She enjoyed it, but had a hard time figuring out the controls (guess we need to work on the nunchuck usage). The game loads really slow with several pauses between screen and minii-games. Overall she was really excited, but got bored and frustrated not being able to do several of the games.

I rented this game for my 4 1/2 year old daughter who LOVES Barbie. The game is just a collection of mini games but many of them are cooperative games so I could help my daughter with the tougher parts. After playing through the games with her she was able to do most of the games on her own. However the game didn't hold her attention for long. She has been asking to play the Disney Princess game on and off for a year but this one only for a couple weeks.

I have been trying to find a game other than bowling that my children can play. I have two girls ages 4 & 6. They both really like this game. They are still learning how to use the Wii controllers, but they are picking it up. I thought the graphics were pretty good, and my children love to play it.
