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 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.
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 bought the Wii game system back in January or February. I have a ten year old and a four year old. The ten year old loves it, absolutely. I think he'd be willing to give up a kidney rather than lose the Wii (and I have to concur). The four year old was a little disillusioned because she can't quite get the hang of the games. She was almost okay with baseball and bowling, but not quite. So when the rest of us wanted to Wii, she'd get annoyed, then annoying.
Summary: I agree with the other reviewer. We have an 8-year-old and a 4-year-old. The younger one wanted to be involved in playing games, but didn't quite get the hang of it; it led to frustration for her and for us (as we tried to explain how to play the other games). We just got this game yesterday and she is already understanding what to do and is playing by herself. So nice to have a fun (and educational!) game for her so that she doesn't feel left out.
Summary: I purchased this for my four year old, because he was feeling left out of all the Wii games we play. He was able to do a few games on his own on Wii Sports and Wario Ware Smooth Moves, but needed assistance most of the time. Not so with this game - I put it in and handed him the remote - he was off! The game is great, it has 3 difficulty levels and requires the kids to play a good variety of puzzle games.
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.
