I have 3 and 5 yr old daughters and am looking for a 360 or original xbox game that they would like. Needs to be VERY easy to play and restart once your game is over. Something that they could play without constant supervision. The 5 yr old is pretty quick to figure things out. I am not really familiar with any games designed for kids this young. They have a V-smile and can play it pretty well but the games are just boring, more designed for education than fun. That is fine, but I want them to have something they will enjoy enough to stay interested for 30-45 minutes at a time. Thanks alot.

My 4 yr old really likes Legos Stars Wars. I even have fun playing it with him. It will require some supervision because they can't advance sometimes and they need a little help. The good thing is you can die as many times as you want.

Gears of War!!



Actually, I bet some of the stuff on Live Arcade might be more up their alley. Something along the lines of Zuma.

I'll second Lego Star Wars...at least the second one for the 360...I haven't played the original for the old XBOX. I'm playing it with my 5 (and 1/2) year old, and it's pretty fun.


Like the other guy said, you can die as many times as you want, and it restarts you right where you left off. I think it's easy enough for kids, but it's also funny and entertaining enough for adults, and there's plenty of goals and hidden characters and vehicles and missions to get also. Plus it's legos...and star wars...they go together like chocolate and peanut butter.


The other game I have for him is Cars, based on the movie. It's non-violent, and there's no dying/shooting etc in it. It's also pretty easy for kids to pick up and play, but also has a lot of goals in it to go do, as they get better at it.

Have to agree about Lego Star Wars I and II. My 4 year old loves LSII on the 360. He's pretty much unlocked all of LSI by himself on the Xbox. I've got to admit that I have fun playing it too. We even watched Empire Strikes Back last weekend, and he loved it. My son also plays some of the older TMNT games, and I just got him Teen Titans. Teen Titans is okay. Playing TMNT with him was torture though. For awhile, that was all he wanted to play. He was dying for Bioncles for Christmas, but has only played it once.

Star Wars Lego, Open Season, Cars, Feeding Frenzy (Live Arcade) and PGR3 w/the MS wireless wheel are a few that my 5 year old enjoys. When mom is not watching we sometimes sneak in a little GOW

My 4yr old loves Lego Stars Wars II! I play it with him and enjoy it as well.


We got Heavy Weapon from XBLA and he really loves playing it as well. We have tried all the racing sims and he doesn't enjoy them, however I just ordered the racing wheel so myabe that will make it more fun for him.

For girls that age, Barbie Horse Adventure for the Xbox would probably hold some appeal. My daughter has it, and it's pretty simple to play. It does not run on the 360, so if you don't have an old Xbox, it's out.


I'll second the Lego Star Wars series too. I even enjoy them.

If you would consider an original xbox game that I believe is backwards compatible I would recommend Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. My 5 year old absolutely loves it. It has about 150 different levels (of all difficulty levels) + 10 or 12 party games. We had a blast playing that together the last couple of years.

My 4 1/2 year-old loves Cloning Clyde . It's rated for everyone 10+ probably due to the mild violence, but it visuals are no more violent than the average Tom 'n Jerry / Roadrunner cartoon (which shows my age), and who doesn't find the occassional exploding chicken harmless?


Like Lego SWII, you can die as many times as you like and although each of the 34 levels has a time component, most of the achievements are based on becoming a Clyde mutant - a Clyde-frog/monkey/sheep which enables extra powers. I also like the puzzle solving component of it - like making use of your mutants/clones to reach areas which are otherwise inaccessible to you.
