Why not pick up a nintendo wii console for your kids?

If your kids are getting old enough for a games console, then the Nintendo Wii console is the one you should be buying. It's the games console designed especially with children in mind.

No other console allows parents to relax, knowing their kids won't be exposed to anything potentially harmful. If you need to know some of these features we've rounded them up here in one handy place.

Games - The vast majority of the Wii gaming catalogue is aimed squarely at children. You won't find any Grand Theft Auto's for sale here. Instead you'll find a mix of family favourites including New Super Mario Bros. Mario Kart, Wii Fit, and Wii Sports.

Secure online environment - The Wii handles online play in a much different manner to the Xbox 360 or the Sony Playstation 3. While these two consoles allow a child to play with anybody online, the Nintendo Wii only allows online play between two people who have exchanged "Friend codes", so your child will only be able to play against people they already know.

Parental controls - No other console has a greater selection of parental controls than the Nintendo Wii. You can restrict your child's ability to access Wii game software based on the ESRB rating, restrict access to various channels, limit the ability of your child to send and receive messages or prohibit the use of Wii Points.

Thanks to all of these features, we highly recommend the Nintendo Wii as a brilliant starting point for your child's gaming. It's perfectly safe!
