Some games allow the child to get physical, and almost all of the game offer educational aspects to it, which is so very important to me! A feature that my son loves most is that he can see himself on the screen with the camera that easily mounts to the television. He can actually even interact with himself on the screen and make it dance. I will suggest that this game is played in a highly lit room because lighting is very important with the virtual interaction.
The remote is perfect for smaller, clumsier hands and is definitely made for the preschooler, or early school aged child. While I know that he will outgrow this gaming system in the next year or two, it is certainly priced accordingly. Right now it is available for less than $60 on amazon, and you certainly would never be able to touch another gaming system, or even decent tablet for that price! Imagine the Happiness your little boy or girl might have on Christmas morning if Santa brought them their very own gaming system?
