    Hello. My 3 year old loves watching me play the odd point n' click or Abes Oddyssey on my macbook, and would like to participate, but those games are too complicated for her. Any good sandboxy games around that have basic complexity to them?

    Question - how do you get your three year old not to bash the keys whilst you are playing?

    My 2.5 year old also loves it when i play on the computer but insists on taking the mouse or bashing the keys repeatedly and then crying because "it not working daddy"

    i can just about get him to flip the pancake in the peppa pig games on the website by pressing spacebar.

    These

    Let me know if you need help with the pancake flipping game, we've sunk hours into it now so know all the tactics

    lol, brilliant! thanks! I bet you have a boy though? I have a little lady, crazy, eccentric and delicate :-D Proud moment this week, she was singing to herself The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel, have it set to play automatically when I switch on the laptop. Earlier she dancing to Evolution by Pearl Jam \o/

    He (nearly 4) also likes Frogger and Pacman.

    And Rayman Origins/Legends, though walking and jumping/punching is still a bit difficult for him.

    My lad used to play Peggle when he was that age. Quite a lot happens from very little input so he loved it!
