Well I'd suggest this game:

Creepers

But we have quite a few more:
Stickybear Town Builder
Inspector Gadget
Daffy Duck PI, the Case of Missing Letters
Donald Duck's Playground

But there are those legos which much bigger and suitable for little children cause they're too big to swallow...

I know a Game. Reading and Writing. k:
If the Child play so early with a PC, it'll never stop and don't get no friends.
If you want do do something with your kids go and play with them outside.
(I'll be banned for that, won't i?)

Depending on how old you are, you'll rather get a beer for that, at least from me!

Well to all the people who are saying different things about it...

Having a child at the computer at an early age isn't necesarily a bad thing. The problem is if you simply put on a game and leave the child behind the computer for a few hours, so you don't have to worry about him/her.

If it's a planned activity (like playing Disney's: Follow the Reader) for let's say half an hour and the parent is there it's not much different (in fact it can be better) then real reading of children's books.

But clear time limits need to be set and the parent should be involved in the process. Probably other children as well. Sitting at a table with a child behind coloring books is also taking the child away from friends.

Taking the child to the park and leaving it in a sandbox (or at the swings) for an hour while sitting on a bench near-by isn't going to improve the parent-child relationship any either.

I say you can actually play just about any game, watch just about any movie, read any kind of books... As long as the parent is doing it with the child. If you leave the child alone with it to ocupy it then it's bad no mater how apropriate the thing is for the child.

Heya Chucky and thanks for bringing up a valid point. But from your post I take it you don't have children of your own?

Anyways, this kid (my girlfriends son) is like most children interested in what we grownups do, and that include games on the computer (both my girl and me play WoW). Thus he has a tendency of climbing up on our laps and try to use the PC along with us punching away at buttons and not understanding a thing, even though he really enjoys it.

So I though I'd get some friendly games and have a little quality-time that he REALLY could enjoy...

And just to put your fears to rest: Today we went out playing in the snow, he played with lego (the big type, Duplo I think) and with his wooden train-set among MANY other "normal" activities.
I think he get less than one hour PC-time each week (all of it supervised) if you add it up...

Oh, and in case you wonder, we do NOT use the computers both at the same time so that the little one is left alone. Well, not while he's awake at any rate!


To all others:
Thanks for some good ideas. I'll check them out...

I've already tried the Little people thingies though. The Farm version was interesting for about 5 minutes, and the Mean street version wouldn't play. I only got a black screen with some white squiggles...

to those who wrote posts about bad effect on gaming

when i was younger(bout 3-5or6) my lifestile was something like that:
playng games for some hours(i had Nintendo console), then going out with my friends(i had loots of frieds)
..we were living in a very natural surrounding, so there was allways lots of thing to do..
then eating something, then playng with my games or nintendo, sleeping
-sometimes we went shopping or somewhere else with parrents etc.

now i study in mathematical class in a high school, have cool marks and much more friends. although i am being having enough of computer games and play MUCH less

so i dont know if influence of computer was so bad.. :angel:

Hmm, what OS are you using? IF you're running WinXP and you're computer is powerful enough you should really get DOSBox and run the game through it. It will work like a charm (along with many other games).

Maybe you should check this site out:
Free online preschool games

In fact you should simply google "preschool computer games", there should be many suitable games out there.
