    This Xmas I promised by little boy a DS, and there is absolutely no getting his mind off it, so it's going to happen. He sees his friends playing one and I couldn't get out of it even if I promised him a life-size Bumblebee.

    What are some games out there that are really kid friendly? And I mean 4-5 year old... If that's even available.

    Stuff like nintendogs maybe - heck I don't know, the most technical thing I played with when I was five was a couple of yoghurt pots connected with string...

    New Super Mario Bros is a game for all ages imo. My nephew loves playing it when he's over.

    Nintendogs is an excellent suggestion. I forgot about those lil sims that don't KILL your character.

    Any Ubisoft game that ends with a Z and has an animal on the cover.

    Duck Amuck, Drawn to Life, Sonic Rush, New Super Mario Bros, Kirby Superstars, prolly some more.

    I think Scribblenauts might be a little too advanced for a four year old though.

    Thanks. I think I'll start him with Mario Kart and Dogs. He plays Mario Kart on the Wii and loves it, so that's something he can be familiar with.

    Animal Crossing
    Harvest moon

    both are great pick up and play games that never get old.

    I'd think they'd be a bit hard to play and understand for a 4/5 year old

    True, But I've Been Playing Pokemon From A Young Age...Although Pokemon Red And Blue Aren't As Complicated As The New Games.

    Don't do Drawn to Life, it's too story driven for a 4-5 year old. Sonic Rush is excellent though.
