Summary: So there were no reviews on this game and I figured for $3.00 our space crazed 4 year old might like it. It was worth a shot. Well - I am happy to report she LOVES it. The game is simple enough so that she can play while i'm doing dishes and she won't come running in every 25 seconds asking for help. It speaks to the child, so there's no reading involved (though there are levels, so i would think it could grow with the child).
Summary: I bought this game thinking my little 5 year old girl would like it because it is easy enough for her to play on the wii. She only played it once and she thought what I thought... It was boring and weird. There are better options out there. Stick with Dora or the Princesses on Wii. This one is a flop.
Summary: A few years ago when we got our Wii, I bought a few other games for "toddlers/younger ones". This is the ONLY one of the lot that my son loved from the beginning and he STILL plays with it a lot. The games are actually very educational, as well (although, he doesn't really know that!)....I highly recommend this for younger ones. Easy to use the Wii remotes with and educational and FUN!
Summary: We bought this game for our then 5 year old daughter based on reviews we read online. It's not the most complicated of games, but she enjoys the various puzzles. I'd say it took her about a week to complete the easiest level, mostly because she enjoyed several of the mini-games and would play them over and over rather than advancing through the game. Included are puzzles, matching, coloring pages as well as other logic puzzles.
Summary: My 4 year old is generally reluctant to play the Wii with anyone else, as he doesn't feel comfortable. He'll noodle around with some games that his older brother (7) has mastered, but not with anyone else watching. This is the first game that I was invited to play with him. Yes, he mastered it in about 3 days, playing an hour or so a day, but he likes the mini-games and likes it when others "play" with him.
Summary: We were having a hard time finding a Wii game that our 3.5 yo DD could play or even relate to, but Cosmic Family has fulfilled that desire. She enjoys the fun stories and can easily play along with the "adventure" or the 20 mini-games and activities. There are 3 game levels that you can choose, perfect as they progress in skills. There are educational themes like shape &/or color matching and sorting, puzzles, associations, sound memory and painting/drawing.
Summary: I cannot believe this game garnered more than two stars from anyone. I have a hard time believing the previous positive reviewers have actually played the game. I'm more inclined to think they work for Ubisoft. I started my 4 year old on the lowest level & what a let down it was! The controls, options and graphics are all very much lacking.
Summary: As a general rule my son (who is 7 and has Autism) cannot really play the Wii. The controls are pretty complicated on many games and require a coordination level he just does not have (fine or gross motor). I picked up Cosmic Family thinking it would be perfect for him. I have to say it was a total bust. The hardest thing for him to do is to hold the Wiimote steady. That is precisely what this game requires.
Summary: My kids are pretty techno-advanced for 4 and 2. They play flash games on [...] all the time. I got Cosmic family for the 4 yr old. It took a bit for her to get good at holding the wii remote steady, which is pretty much the only mechanical skill required for all the games. The sound volume leaves a lot to be desired. The music often overpowers the directions from the elephant, so I'm constantly listening for her so I can tell her what the instructions are.
