Even a three year old can learn to use the Wii on their own with the special games and controllers designed just for them (mine did!). Not sure your little one is ready for video games? Consider it is much more engaging than watching TV, promotes hand eye coordination, and many of the games are educational. Plus, it’s an easy way to sneak in some exercise on a rainy day.

It’s very important with this age group to get a game designed specifically for preschoolers. Trust me, these games are much different than your average game designed for even elementary age kids and rated “E for everyone.”
