    A friend of mine needs help, he's looking for a game for the Wii to let a 6 year old play.
    Only thing I know is the kid likes WWE, so, any suggestions?

    Edit: The kid propably won't read any text, since he only speaks Hebrew.

    While it's not WWE, Boom Blox is great. I was playing that at my cousin's house (with her 5 y/o daughter and her friend around the same age) and they learned it quickly and, with a few strategic tips from me, did quite well in it.

    Wii Sports is pretty decent too (the original), bowling in paticular. Hell, they even beat me once.

    I forgot to mention, the kid propably won't read the text, since he only knows Hebrew.
    So I don't know if he'll get the different blocks and balls and stuff in Boom Blox, but it's a good idea, thanks.

    Haven't seen anything about little kings story, I'll check it out.
    Mario Kart Wii and WarioWare Smooth Moves are good suggestions too, and don't you think he'll have problems with Super Mario Galaxy in some parts?
    Thanks. :]

    You can't go wrong with Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones imo. There is text but it isn't essential to read and he'll love them all.

    Thank you all.
    The Lego series is a really good idea, I forgot about those games.
    I'll talk to my friend and we'll see if he'll get one of the games you guys suggested.
    And as far as I know, he'll only get retail games, so no VC or WW.

    Omer, Mario Kart is a great idea. However, I personally advice WS Resort, I personally bought a MW+ right now, and when I get home, I'll try resort, which looks pretty amazing.

    Hm, WWE isn't a great idea since WWE series in my opinion, SUCKS.
    a DBZ game is a great option.

    Oh, don't just think of some Childish games only, it'll be really great to get this kid familiar with good games such as SSBB (HOW DIDNT I THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE), The Conduit (really good) and the upcoming title NSMBii [​IMG]

    My six (now 7) year old really liked:

    Wii Sports
    Wii Fit
    Petz Catz 2
    Animal Crossing

    Let him play enough and he may learn to read other than hebrew.
