Thank you, I will look into them, I did look through amazon a few days ago, I didn't see science papa but all the games I did see were aimed at older children or very basic if aimed at younger ones

In our house the Wii is to have fun on - not an "educational" toy - they will not want to play on it if it is deemed "good for you" - mine have tried a few of them and they are the ones that get put back on ebay..... Sports and racing, and dancing and lego games are the ones they want to play, and we are fine with that...

We tried Brain Academy type games etc on Wii (as enjoyed on DS) and it just didn't seem as good.

Agree Wii is for family fun. It great as something to do together, like the modern equivalent of a board game, not education.

We do play the fun games together(we have wii sports, mariokart and the smurfs dance) but I thought it would be good If there were fun games that he could also learn from, Hea still young enough to find educational games fun

DS is 3 and really loves nickelodeon fit (like wiifit but with characters like Dora) - you can use the board but if you don't have one you can use the remote.

There's also dance junior if he likes that sort of thing but I've not tried it.

OMG milk!

I think you've just cost me £8 - that science papa game looks fab! Basically like cooking mama I guess? It is on the wishlist grin thanks for posting it <wonders if it can be disguised as a family present>
