    Long story short: I'm giving away an acekard to my cousin. She's currently like 5 years old. I'd imagine she'd like stereotypical girls stuff (dolls etc).

    Does anyone have any good quality (no shovelware please), easy to play (requires minimal reading, pick-up-and-play-no-tutorial, etc) (especially for a 5-10 year old), children's, or girl games that they could recommend?
    I have a 4gb sd card to fill up.

    Currently, I could only think of super princess peach and new super mario brothers.

    Why the heck so many people here asks something like -"what is good anime series for my 7y ol kid?"
    or, "Tell me some good games for my 20 year old son? PLZZZZ"
    Are you serious with your topic?

    GOOGLE

    EDIT: Btw I didn't knew that 5 year old is pre-teen...

    It would have made sense to say "I didn't know the pre-teen was 5 years old."
    What you said made it sound like you didn't know 5 was a pre-teen age.

    My 6 year old cousin likes New Super Mario Bros.

    I'm sure she also likes Super Princess Peach.

    And I know when I was little, I grew up with Tetris.

    But if possible, try and give her a few RPG's as text-hheavy they will be.
    They will improve her reading and possibly her vocabulary.

    Wizard of Oz.
    Kingdom Hearts.
    Mario and Luigi 3
    Scribblenauts
    Pinky Street Kira Kira Pop Princess
    Pinky Street Kira Kira Pop Town

    Animal Crossing
    Clubhouse Games
    Elebits The Adventures Of Kai And Zero
    Pokemon
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Rings of Fate
    Elite Beat Agents
    Kirby Canvas Curse
    Mario Kart
    Mario Party DS
    Neves
    Any Language Coach - Personally I pick Japanese so she'll have better luck with future games.
    Peggle Dual Shot
    Rhythm Heaven
    Summon Night Twin Age
    Legend of Zelda, both of them.
    Super Monkey Ball Touch and Roll
    WarioWare Touched!
    Super Mario 64 DS
    Sally's Salon

    Now I have more "recommended" games for any age, but I really think these are the funnest a 5 year old would be able to play.
    And they're not just for fun either, some of them are subliminally teaching ones. The ones in bold are absolute musts for a 5 year old, but if possible, try and include all of them.

    Why do you implement GIRL GAMES, DOLLS and whatnot. Games are supposed to be to fly away from the stereotypical reality, she will have a hard time fighting that shit in real life.

    btw, she's 5, dont give her any games. In her age, the fantasy is all you need.
