    What do you guys think are the easiest games available for a 4 or 5 yr old? I have a few that my niece loves - Fairies Fly, Archibald, PocketGod (though not really a game), etc. - but I'm looking for more. I want them to be simple because I don't want her to get too frustrated. A lot of the games I've looked at seem a little too advanced for her (some require reading for example) but she loves to play with my phone. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    My just-turned-five year old likes Paper Toss. FYI, they added ads, so I upgraded to the paid version (Paper Toss World Tour). I don't want her launching some site, accidentally.

    Also, another vote for PocketGod, although it's a little violent.

    If you don't mind the shameless plug, I'd be happy to give you a promo code for my own app, Little Piggy. It features my daughter's foot, and you play 'This Little Piggy' on her toes. But, if you do it in the correct order, you get rewarded with a random video (farm animals, etc.). You can also tickle the bottom of her foot.

    Plus, you can play in French and Spanish, in addition to English. And turn captions on or off. So it's a little educational.

    My new 5yo plays....

    BubbleWrap
    Paper Toss (the prior non-ad version)
    Koala Darts
    ParachuKids
    Trace
    Waterslide
    Race to Witch Mountain

    And i see i don't have it on here, but there is a Monkey Toss one that she loved on Grandpa's.

    She just told me her favorite though is "Shapes and Colors", she did play it on the drive home yesterday most of the way.... LOL!
