Just to let you know about the Netflix app on the WiiU.
When you boot it up it'll ask you what version of Netflix you want. The full blown Netflix or kids.
When you select kids, that's all you get, kids shows. There is no chance of your daughter watching anything inappropriate.

It's actually rather great.

I don't get it?. My Wii U is for gaming. If/when I want to Watch tv, I have 50+ channels of s""" on my tv to choose from. Just to quote Pink Floyd.

Gamepad is much harder to break than people here would leave you to believe. And i doubt very much a 5 year old child has the strength to break it

I was imagining something akin to her throwing it on the ground and stomping on it. Preeettty sure that will do it...right? How sturdy can they be?

A 5 year old child handling the Wii U Gamepad: It's a disaster waiting to happen: You do know that if the gamepad is destroyed (And it will happen), You can throw the console in the garbage too.
Just a friendly advise.

This. Hate to say it but it is the truth. You have been warned, sir.


It's $150 to fix. Sucks, but isn't that disastrous. I know many 5 years olds (and younger) that have iPads. Just get a case for the gamepad.


OK, but if she breaks it once it will happen again and again. I am sure he hasn't thought about how much that will cost him.

Please ignore these morons.


Now then yes you should get your 5 year old a Wii U buy her a case and screen protectors she's going to be touching the screen shot even if she has a stylus because kids like hands on. Another thing don't buy her any stupid shovelware titles like Disney Image or Barbie (they get bad reviews for a reason).

For game titles it all depends on her tastes and how you gauge her maturity level. Oh and if she has any siblings.
Get her Nintendoland if it doesn't already come packaged with. Also get your daughter Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong:Tropical Freeze. Both are sold multiplayer games that have some difficulty and learning curve. So you can help her out in a jam. Also Wii Party I and Just Dance are fun nonsense games that she can go nuts too. Also could buy her the handful of other challenging games like The Wonderful 101 (Set to Easy, Child of Light (Again set to really easy), and both NW Remix 1+2 for getting her interested in old school.

The eShop different story since there's tons of fun games to play there. Myself I'd get her those GBA titles (Mario& Luigi: Superstar Saga, Golden Sun, Metroid Fusion, Yoshi Island 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Mega Man, and so many others)

Children can play games no matter how young they are. If all depends on how dedicated of a parent you are. I was gaming since I was two and I started with Arcade abs the SNES with Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Quest, Final Fantasy, and Bomberman (as I had a computer abs ROM'd games to. ) And the Jumpstart/Cluefinders series. As long as you taught her patience, understanding, and how to problem solve she'll be fine.
