Great game for kids

Summary: My 5-yr-old got this game for Christmas, and it's been a favorite every since then. You can play an exhibition game (1 or 2 player), a World Series game, practice via specific training events, or compete in Skills Challenge events. The difficulty level is perfect for his age, as he was able to learn the game quickly and yet still have room to grow and new skills to master.
Summary: This game is ideal for the miniature baseball fanatic in the family. I don't think you can control the action as much as you can in other Wii baseball games. But for kids under 12, it is great fun. They can spend more time playing than reading the manual and trying to figure out how to do things. I enjoy the fact that it features kids as the stars. It allows my son to dream about the day he gets to the Little League World Series, and he is featured in the game.
Summary: My 4 year old son has had this game for about 3 weeks now, and absolutely loves it. The controls are very intuitive and he was hitting home runs in no time (I actually had to turn the difficulty up for him!) Also, in my opinion, Activision did not "dumb down" this game for kids---there's lots of nice little touches for adults (in-jokes, beautiful background scenery, etc.).
