    When I was that age I loved stuff like age of empires... Fairly simple strategy games that still make you think.
    Also there's a game out called disney universe that is apparantly pretty popular with younger kids

    If you have a look at a site called common sense media they have recommendations and reviews for all ages of kids

    ronald and agnes play minimonos's and i love it.

    i get emails about their behaviour and i log in and read their messages.

    they are strict about sharing any info including real names, email, pics etc.

    I'd recommend almost any Wii game. You can buy a Wii console for quite cheap (even cheaper on ebay). But the games on the Wii are almost all designed for family or younger children's games and are rarely above a PG rating so they're great for younger kids

    My 7 year old daughter likes pocket tanks and tux paint and some Putt Putt games. I think you can purchase these via download. Tux paint is free.

    She also likes Moshi monsters and My PInk Panda both online games. The latter is heaps of games for girls mostly inane and shallow I am afraid and about dress ups, cooking and cake decorating.


    If you let them on the net put net nanny or similar on and monitor them.

    minimonos is about being eco friendly..not girly or boyish..

    you do need to be there when they are on as it is live chat.
    the mods read everything and the whole island shuts if someone breaches rules...but its still the net and crazies can get on!

    Thanks everyone!

    Im already aware of online games but I want to limit net access for her computer so was looking for some actual games you pay for. Lol.

    We also already have all the consoles so are cool with those for games. Yeah, we're big nerds in this house. Lol
