Xbox 360 from £240

Gaining mastery over a hand-held console control can be tricky for young children (and for some adults too). The beauty of the XBox 360 Kinect is that all you need is your hand or voice to activate the sensor and you’re away. Lurking inside the neat, sleek black Kinect unit is some high-tech Microsoft wizardry – they call it a “motion controlled gaming interface” – that recognises movements and sounds. Perfect for families to play together, a big part of the fun is designing your avatars and watching your recorded antics in replay mode.  There’s also a great range of Kinect games that are perfect for families, including the super-cute petcare game of Kinectimals, and Kinect Disneyland Adventures, both Highly Commended for their mix of superb graphics and animation, and child-friendly appeal.
