    So I picked up Peggle when it came out and my little girl loves it. So I am thinking of picking up a pink DS for her own with her own Peggle and maybe 2 more games. Anyone have any ideas on what are some good kiddie games on the DS? Any games where you do not have to read any words or any words bigger than 3 letter would be ideal. Thanks for any help guys!

    I have 3 girls. These are some of the games I would recommend:

    1. All of the "Sims" games - My Sims Kingdom, Sim Animals, etc.
    2. All the "Petz" games - Petz Cats, Petz Dogz, Petz Dolphins, etc.
    3. She is probably just getting to the age of being into Pokemon, so any of the pokemon based games would be fun for her over the next few years.
    4. If she is into "Littlest Pet Shop", as many girls that age are, they just recently released several games based on these toys.
    5. Most of the "Imagine" games might also be fun for her, but maybe as she turns 6 and 7. But, check out Imagine Ice Skater, Imagine Chef, Imagine Teacher, etc.

    This is a good place to start a young girl. As she get older, she will most surely get into the more serious games. But for now, these games will be right on her level. Hope this helps.

    Well, getting a DS game where you don't need to read words or words with not more than 3 letters is gonna be hard, but anyway, i'll try.
    I've never been into those kind of games (as in, kiddie games)...
    Line Rider 2: Unbound (watch one of the videos at IGN)
    Heard of a Princess Maker, mabey you could try that?
    One of the Imagine games
    Nintendogs
    Can't think of any more...

    New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart DS are must-haves; fun for all ages. My little bro LOVES those games.

    Also, Pokemon is extremely popular with the kids, so get her Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness (eitehr one) and Platinum when it come out.

    Gotta agree with all the ones in this thread so far, they have hit the nail on the head. You definately need to get Mario Kart DS - it's just that much of a must have for young kids. There are also several learning games (I couldn't name them off the top of my head) that you may want to look out for that would be great for someone her age.

    Lol wat?

    Also I think pokemon games may be a little too difficult for a 5 years old.. I mean, there's a lot of text to read and quests to do... Try to get her pokemon dash or something easier just to get her started with the pokemon series, then when she asks for more you can try with the original pokemon games (aka RPGs...)

    All of the Smart Girl's/Boy's games, my 3 year old son loves them.

    Elektroplancton is also pretty nice for lil kids, it's easy and creative. [​IMG]

    And all little girls go crazy for Nintendogs, so definitely that.

    Imagine Ballet Dancer is very nice too, but I'd suggest that for when she's older, around 8+.

    Only Dementium - The Ward and Horse and Pony - My Stud Farm are games for a 5 year old girl.
    Resident Evil is for a 4 year old boy, not for a girl, you know.
    Touch the Dead, I never played it.
    Mortal Combat is for 7 year old boys/girls that want to be cool.

    Dont give a 5 year old girl/boy that games!

    Yeah, I know what you mean, it happens to me in the internet discussions all the time(gotta make fun of everything everywhere, can't help it:)).
    Actually, the people who get the joke don't usually respond in any way, they just laugh out loud, and those who do not, tell you that you're douchebag.)
