Super Mario Galaxy is fantastic, visually exciting and fresh. Super Mario Galaxy is probably best for ages 7 - 10.
Wii Play has 9 different games including Billiards, Tanks, and Skeet shooting. They are simple but fun, and you can win medals for each level.
Big Brain Academy is a fun brain challenging game. It's probably the most educational of all the Wii games. Adults can play against kids, like most Wii games.
Super Paper Mario is a deep combination of scroller / role playing game. There's a good bit of reading necessary to solve all the puzzles. If your kids liked Animal Crossing, I think they'll like Super Paper Mario. If they don't, it's even more fun for adults...
Madden on the Wii is soo much easier to play than on the PS2. The controller makes it a great game even for kids. My 7 yr-old is into Madden now. He's learned to tell the difference between a Nickel and Dime defense. So that'll come in handy during football season, I think.
Rayman's Ravin' Rabbids has a lot of crazy mini-games, ranging from shooting to Dance-Dance Revolution type dancing. It's definitely a game targeted more at kids. Pretty fun.
Zelda is a great adventure game that can take a while to learn. It's full of challenging puzzles and make excellent use of the Wii-mote controller. I'd recommend for kids 9 and above.
Sonic and Mario at the Olympics is going to be popular after the summer Olympics. It's probably best for kids over 7.
Lego Star Wars is the easiest game that boys ages 5 and up will like. It's very forgiving and fun.
