Summary: We can only get one controller to work at a time, even though the game says to use both controllers. One turns off when the other syncs with the game. The controller motions are far too complicated for a very intelligent 6 year old. And to use the balance board you have to sync it each time you start one- takes too long.

Summary: ... and I'm donating it rather than give it to the kids in my life. I seriously dislike this game. I was hoping for Wii Fit style activities in an island setting, but this is so clunky there's no comparison. It doesn't use your Mii, and has a seriously limited choice of avatars (2 possible females -- but hey, you can put hats on them). Worst, though, is that the activities weren't particularly good for exercise anyway.
Complicated with bad graphics: avoid, avoid, avoid!

Summary: The kid received this as a birthday gift. My favorite charity will soon find this in a box from us. It's complicated to setup. Graphics are not well done. Your money is better spent on Nickelodeon Fit or Wii Sports Resort. Much less hassle!
Summary: My kids 14, 5 & 4 very much enjoy Wii Fit Plus. They all play it and have a blast. Even my 4 year old is very good at most of them. We thought for his birthday we would get him a kid related fitness game. I wrongly assumed that character interaction of Kid Fit Island Resort would be just like Wii Fit Plus. The games are boring, the balance board interaction seems to be nothing more than an after thought.
Summary: I bought this game for $15 at Wal-mart. Clearly I wasted my money. My daughter is 6 and can play many Wii games on her own. She plays Wii Fit Plus really well so naturally I thought it would be fun to get her a Fit game for kids. This game was too difficult for her to play and she proclaimed that it isn't much fun anyways. It is supposed to work with the Wii Balance board but it certainly does not work very well - if at all.
Summary: Ok so I didn't buy it, but my mom did, for my niece as some of the games on the Wii Fit Plus were a bit too difficult for her. There's only 10 games, 2 appear to be the same thing just different graphics, so it was more like 9 games. The Wii Balance Board took forever to connect to it. We had to try like 10 times to get it to work. So the others who say it doesn't work or have had difficulty, they're right. This game isn't worth the $14.99 that was spent on it.
Summary: This game was the worst! The music is boring, the choice of Mi's was terribly limited and the action was boring. I could not get the characters to perform the tasks any better than my daughter could. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! Huge waste of money!
Summary: My grandchildren (ages 9, 5, and 4) love the wii fit, but some of the games are too difficult for them. So I decided to buy this game which I hoped would be more age appropriate. Not so. The games on this game are as hard (or harder) than the wii fit. They were difficult for an adult, much less a child. I would not recommend this game for kids.
