    Nice and simple games for kids


    My 3yo has got my old tablet as it was simply gathering dust. (It's a Dutch saying )

    Now, I am looking for some simple games for her in the store. As it is an old tablet there are some limitations. For example Cars (the game) doesn't run smooth, Sonic dash doesn't run smooth either. The other limitation is that the games may cost SOME money, but shouldn't be too expensive.

    Now, I can find loads of memory games and bubble breaker games, but that's not what I am looking for. Rayman jungle run works as well, but my daughter gets stuck in it. What I am looking for is something like an interactive cartoon. For example Dora but less passive. Preferably in Dutch, but that is perhaps too much to ask.

    Or should I just leave the Windows platform and get an Android tablet or iPad for my daughter?

    Thanks for the bump, but it didn't really help. Had some other questions here on the forum. How active is the forum?

    Thanks! I did find some Disney games that seem to be quite some fun. Unfortunately the "my little pony game" is already a bridge too far and is too demanding for the tablet. Time for something like an Acer W3, HP Stream 7 or something. But somehow I have the impression my girlfriend doesn't share my opinion that that is necessary

    By the way: Deutsch (German) is something different than Dutch. (About 70-75 years ago that was a different discussion ) But thanks for doing that effort

    When my kids were 5 or so they enjoyed games like Freddie the fish, where the character searches for clues and plays games in an underwater settings. Webkinz has some fun games, some gambling games, and extra stuff to buy. Barbie has some fun games for older girls. Wikipedia describes some games.

    Freddi Fish is what I played as a child (in Dutch). Sure it's old, but certainly not outdated!

    I'll look for that one. How is the Dutch game called? Freddie Vis? I'm not able to find that.

    Why on earth would I post a question about an Android tablet on the "eightforums"? So, no, it is not an Android tablet.
