I'm getting a Wii for dd/my birthday and was wondering where the best place to buy games from was. Were in Canada, also anyone know any games suitable for a 3 year old?

For a 3 y/o, I would be looking at the local game store that sells used games. Kiddie games are in and out of the house pretty fast.

We still check out the Game place but also compare prices with Walmart and Amazon. In my area, prices are higher at other places.

We love Gamestop. I order games online and purchase in the store all of the time. They sell used and new games, all come with a warranty. If you get a used game that has issues, they readily exchange it for you - no questions asked.

I Googled it and it looks like Gamestop does do business in Canada as well as, the U.S.

Now, as far as games for a 3 year old, sorry I am clueless. My youngest is 16. But, I Googed this and a few suggestions were Carnival Games, Looney Tunes, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Disney Cars, Lego Indiana Jones, and Mario Cart comes highly recommended from several resources.

Hope this helps a little! Enjoy your Wii!!!

We buy most of our games at EB Games (the Canadian version of Gamestop). Look for the yellow tags, those are the used copies, usually somewhat cheaper than new.

Also, don't forget to check your local classified ads, or Kijiji. Lots of people buy a game, and once they beat the game, they sell them.

I don't really know about games for your DD, but I'm thinking anything based on a kid's cartoon would be pretty good.

Ebay- Ebay is a great place to find them.
Video stores- Sometimes Local video stores sell games when they become less popular.
Craig's list. There are tons of deals for anything- including video games On craigslist.

What about a play group or something,church. Do trades/swaps. That stuff is so much and it gets old fast w/ kids. In the summer,garage sales fill our needs. does your library have games?

Game Stop for sure. But, I was in a used book/video/cd store the other day and they had bins of them to dig thru. And, the prices were much cheaper than Game Stop. So, if you have a place like that, check it out. These guys don't advertise that they sell games, so I was surprised to see bins and bins and bins of them.
