The title represents 2K Play’s first Wii game engineered specifically for preschoolers and is based on extensive Nickelodeon in-home research that focused on how to best match the abilities and needs of younger children with the capabilities of the platform. Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the MermaidsTM is also now available for the PlayStation 2 system.Go, Diego, Go!: Safari Rescue was designed with 13 intuitive Wii-centric motions that maximize the engineering of the Wii RemoteTM for a preschooler. Taking on the role of Diego in a race across Africa, gamers stomp to scare away lions, jump with Baby Jaguar, paint stripes on zebras, climb up ladders and swim across the jungle river by mimicking those actions with the Wii Remote. The game has a unique feature which allows parents to collaborate with younger gamers by using the special Safari Guide Helper Feature and a second Wii Remote. Preschoolers can, by themselves, help Diego blow up a hot air balloon by pumping up and down, but their actions are enhanced with speed and vibrant animations when assisted.

The packaging on both titles features a “Kid-Tested” seal.
