Thanks guys, will def look at shrek and lego as he loves that. Just found the junior brain trainer 1/2 on tesco ent. for ?9.99 but not sure which to get.
Love Mario but they are all the more expensive games and i'm tight lol.
We already have peppa pig on the wii and think its the same games possibly? It has a happy mrs chicken game on it.

No good being tight when it comes to these games, Mario is always favourite and whenever I've bought cheaper ones they just don't get played so false economy. I have 4 sons, youngest is 8 now and Mario is his favourite too.

I'd get games themed on whatever/whoever he likes at the moment. There are games for most characters/programmes on tv - ben 10, toy story 3, club penguin etc

Just resurrecting this thread as we ahve bought ds 5 a DS for christmas, just wondering what game to buy? The problem is his older brother has got mario kart, super mario bros, ben 10, toy story 3, lego star wars, pokemon, junior brain trainer. I know he will borrow all of these but wanted to get just one game that would be his IYKWIM. Any new ones come out that would be good? I need one tht is 3+ not 7+ otherwise he will just get frustrated if it is too hard
