<<"Can anyone please tell me how family friendly (youngest is 3) the
Waldspitz - Rothenegghütte - Feld - Bussalp walk is and how easy is it
to follow - is the trail well signposted?">>
I've never done it. It has altitude changes ranging on up to 350 meters at altitudes near 2000 meters. Makes you pant a lot if you are not accustomed to exertion at those altitudes.
This map in this link shows the trails:

There are some steep climbs, even though, overall, the trail only changes altitude by about 100 meters, end to end.
I judge from the map that it is not an easy trail, unless you are used to high altitude hiking on mountain trails..
I'd think it might be a bit much for 3 year old, unless the 3 year old is Swiss and was born with his/her hiking boots on and has a hiking staff or two made for someone his/her size. ;-)
