A Nintendo Wii Game You Cannot Go Wrong With
The next video game that I have to mention is a game that is perfect for adults who have to buy gifts for other people's children this holiday, and are baffled on what to buy them, yet at the same time do not want to spend too much money on them.
We Wish You A Merry Christmas is a fool proof title for kids and teens. The title is cheap, it's universal, and it merges in with the holiday. Best of all you can hand it off to families with more than one child, allowing you to save bundles of cash due to the fact that you do not have to buy individual presents for each kid.
The title sticks to a clever holiday theme using elves, reindeer, Santa Claus and other holiday characters to deliver hours and hours of puzzles and mini games for kids to enjoy.

Happy Holidays For Teens!!! Top Must Have Video Games For the Nintendo Wii For Teens
Spore Hero is the second Nintendo Wii video game that I personally am itching to take for a test drive. With the release of Spore on PC, many kids, teens and adults alike have found an addiction to the game. With Spore Hero being released on the Nintendo Wii all fans of the original PC game are going to want this title. Spore Hero is going to be just as creative as the original game, only the controls will probably be a lot easier on the Nintendo Wii.
Spore Hero was released on October 6th 2009. A lot of kids and teens will be begging for this one the moment it releases, so scoop it up, and stow it away for Christmas Day.

DJ Hero, With Turn Table
DJ Hero, With Turn Table for the Nintendo Wii is another video game that teens will particularly enjoy, especially if they have been fans of Guitar Hero.
This extremely interesting game comes with a very unique turntable that is of course, compatible with the Nintendo Wii. The turntable allows the player to become the DJ, it includes 101 songs, which the player can scratch into unique mixes. This gnarly game hits shelves on October 27th.

LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues
LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is set to release on November 17th. It will hit those shelves just in time for the Holidays, and surely will be a game worth picking up for older children and teens. What makes the LEGO titles so desirable is the unique game play that it offers. While the games can be easy, they offer a complex system of hunting and finding missing artifacts, and the use of many different characters that each have their own unique 'powers'. Switching back and forth between one character that can jump high, and one that has a whip makes this easy game more difficult, but not too difficult as to where younger kids couldn't beat it.

Rock Band LEGO
LEGO Indiana Jones 2 is not the only LEGO Nintendo Wii video game that teens are going to want.
A unique release of Rock Band LEGO will be taking place on November 10th. This is cutting it close to the holidays, so if possible pick this title up as early as possible. Teens who have found a liking to LEGO games, and teens who have fallen for Rock Band, will enjoy this title.

Just In Time For Christmas! Must Have Nintendo Wii Video Games For Very Young Children
A lot of games are geared at older children, and teens, and a lot of the very young kids get left out. There is not much of a broad variety of games for very young children when you go looking for them in game stores, and you certainly don't want to give a 5 year old a game that features blood, gore, and adult themes, so I decided to compile a list of Nintendo Wii video games that are geared at the young ones!

Littlest Pet Shop: Friends
One must have Nintendo Wii video for young children is a game titled: Littlest Pet Shop Friends. This game may not capture the interest of teens, but it will surely be on the wish list of children 3-10 years old. This video game is pretty much a must for kids who enjoy collecting Littlest Pet Shop Pets.
Yes, those adorable little plastic pets you have been buying them for years has been turned into a video game.
The plus side with this game is that you won't be sucking up the little plastic pets in the vacuum anymore. Littlest Pet Shop Friends is set to release on October 20th.

Where The Wild Things Are
The next must have Nintendo Wii video game that will be perfect for very young children will be based on one of my favorite children's books. I am sure many of you have already seen previews of the movie Where The Wild Things Are. The book is becoming a movie, and along side the movie; a video game!
I know that some of you are probably thinking movie based video games stink, but in 2009 there have been a slew of really well done movie based video games, and frankly I only expect the best from Where the Wild Things Are. The video game is set to hit shelves this October 13th.

The next Nintendo Wii video game that young children are going to want for Christmas is Rabbids Go Home.

Rabbids Go Home is scheduled for a November 1st release.
