Although the Nintendo Wii catches a lot of grief for being a little kids’ console, it wasn’t until recently that the first games designed specifically for preschoolers made their way to the Wii. Developed by 2K Play and Nickelodeon, Go, Diego, Go!: Safari Rescue was among the first, providing an ideal mix of a preschooler-friendly franchise and kid-focused controls. The gameplay was based entirely on Nickelodeon research with preschoolers and their families to determine how kids play, how they could best control a game, and how their parents could enjoy the fun with them. We were intrigued by the game, so we’re giving away one free copy of the Wii game to other parents who are just as interested.

Game synopsis: Go, Diego, Go!: Safari Rescue was designed specifically for preschoolers, with 13 intuitive Wii-centric motions that maximize the engineering of the Wii Remote for a preschooler. Taking on the role of Diego in a race across Africa, gamers stomp to scare away lions, jump with a Baby Jaguar, paint stripes on zebras, climb up ladders and swim across the jungle river by mimicking those actions with the Wii Remote.
