    Crayola Color Adventure
    Smart Girl/Boy Playhouse/Gameroom
    Electroplankton
    Mario Cart
    Geometry Wars: Galaxies (if you unlock things for him)

    No matter what you play, I have some advice. If you're running a flash card, turn on the cheats.

    Is it bad the first suggestion that came to mind was something along the lines of Pedo-bear presents Toddler Mayhem? [​IMG]

    I think he should play with lego and stuff that would enrich his own fantasy, and not let him depend on the fantasy of game creators... (maybe this in inappropriate)

    I couldn't agree more. Want your child to develop? Give him some lego. And with that I don't mean Lego Star Wars..

    Ontopic: NSMB. like everything else requires reading beyond the level of a four year old. :-X A 4yo can't play pokémon..

    Colors and Cooking Mama. Maybe Tetris.

    Or even better, get a Wii and get him active with like WiiSports and Sonic/Mario at Olympics. I know this 2 year old who loves that game. [​IMG]

    Give him some bricks while he still has time for them, he will have so much time for video games later on

    Lol!

    I think you should try Mario Kart DS, just leave it on VS mode, random courses and leave them to it. It worked for me. [​IMG]

    i completely agree with all the people suggesting legos. i LOVED legos as a kid, and didn't get into video games until a little later.

    Dementium: The Ward!

    Lol, that would warp the kid a bit.

    Give him Tetris, everyone loves Tetris, I used to play it when I was about 4-5 too!
