I don't know if it's out for the Wii, but Apples to Apples is a really fun game to help teach kids to read. Anything to do with animals... But if you're really looking for something that is awesome try, Endless Ocean. It's a bit difficult to take pictures of the sea creatures, but you can always help them with that, and they will learn all about sea creatures. My 7 year old and my 4 year old knew what most of the animals were before my kids classmates did.

@lazarus hahahah, funny... Nintendo is famouse for it's educational wide varity of games, i would get him a system, but why waste more money when we own a Wii that has more games for all ages??

@D.Robinson i'm afraid of heat stroke and can't let him stay watching T.V all day without moving, wii is more suitable for what i need for him..

@Sephiroth thanx, i will check it out

Any more recommendations

My son liked the Dora and Diego games at that age, and the learning games on WiiWare (Learning with the PooYoos - Episode 1, 2, & 3) are good for this age group too.

Maybe try Nickelodeon Fit--but a three-year-old would still need supervision to switch between mini-games and figure out the controller.

Honestly you can not think of anything to do with a 3 year old inside besides watch tv or play video games?

Build a fort, stack blocks, put down tape in a traintrack pattern and pretend to be a locomotive, read a book or two, turn on some music and do some silly dancing.

A 3 year old should be watching (or play games on the) TV no more than 2 hours a day with 30 minutes being the recommended amount. Those 30 minutes should also be with an adult around to interact with the child as they view the program or play the video game...

There's nothing wrong with letting a kid play video games sometimes, people. The OP didn't ask for suggestions for keeping his/her kid in front of a television for 12 hours a day. Video games are a fun family activity in my home too, from time to time, so for Pete's sake, lighten up a bit. If you want to be parents, go have kids of your own. You know, video games DO have some advantages for the young'uns, such as improved hand-eye coordination and even some proper concepts of socialization and fair play. So get over yourselves. Seriously.

Now, to the OP: My daughter is six and does the best with Kinect games, actually. It's easier to match her body movements on the screen that fumble for buttons. But she also really enjoys the simpler Wii games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit. Where she really excels is in touch-screen devices like the Nintendo DS or the iPad. I got her her her own Nintendo 3DS and she absolutely loves it. She's better at some games than I am!

For a 3-year-old, you may want to consider a downloadable educational WiiWare game like Learning with the Pooyoos. Or even pick up a uDraw tablet that will enable your child to draw pictures on the TV screen. There's a lot of great stuff for kids out there, if you only do some looking around! :)

Mario Kart with the wii wheel is a fun one. My son, also 3, has played it and since it's multiplayer we can play together. He can't stay on the track but finds it fun anyway.
