    Hi,

    What games would you recommend for little girls age 5 to 7 (5, 6 and 7 to be exact)?
    At the moment they only have Super Mario Kart and the youngest is having some troubles with it.

    All suggestions welcome [​IMG]
    Thanks!
    Bert

    ANY of the Super Mario Advance. Especially the Yoshi's Island one if my little cousin's an indication of the type of games little girls like.

    My advice would be to try out different genre's of games because you never know. I remember my sister growing up and loving Street Fighter. She was always Cammy [​IMG] And my sister is a typical girly girl, not a tomboy or anything. So maybe the 7 year old might like that. But maybe my sister was 8 or 9? I'm not sure if 7 is too young.

    Maybe try Metroid Prime Pinball. Kids like pinball games. They may have fun toying around with Electroplankton, what about Super Princess Peach, Brain Age, or there are a lot of games based on kid tv shows or movies. Find out what your they like and see if there's a game for it.

    For the sake of humanity, don't buy games based off of movies/shows. There are plenty of other games much better.
    Electroplankton is really simple and fun, if you're willing to pay for it. (At my local Gamestop it's used for $30, might even be $35)
    Super Mario Advance 2 is the best Super Mario Advance, and who doesn't like Mario?(It's Super Mario World!)Also, there's 3 save files on that-maybe you could "share" with the youngest?

    Yes, I recommend Hotel Dusk too, and if she wants a good read, I'd suggest the complete works of Shakespeare...

    I also recommend New Super Mario bros, my 5 year old loves this game.

    hotel dusk will bore little kids to death. Also its to mature for them. Buy them a flash card they will love it.

    Another vote for Electroplankton here..
    Easy enough for a 4 year old to work it, and fun for adults as well! [​IMG]

    For the love of all that is holy don't get Hotel Dusk for her. My pick would probably go to Chocobo Tales when it comes out next month.

    Electroplankton = waste of money. I changed my mind, get Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses. Let them play with pictochat lol.

    But great for the young ones.

    definitely nintendgos and most mario games are good choices, my 5 year old girl cousin's two favorite games are bomberman and super mario world.

    Don't get hotel dusk or mario 64, they're too advanced for her, she'll just get frustrated and/or bored. I haven't tried resident evil though....
