Hi All,
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a DS game that would assist in keeping a 3 year old boy entertained on the flight to Orlando? My wife has seen recommendations for Peppa Pig, but I am sure there are plenty more.

Many thanks

Have you heard of these

Might be worth a look as you can put multiple games on one - DD and DS have one each and sometimes have up to 30+ :thumbsup2

Just be prepared to spend time "helping" - a lot of older character DS games do have reading involved. (Little Mermaid, Spongebob, Charlottes web etc..)

My kids are getting better use - and less frustration , out of the games now they can read.

Thanks everyone...there are a few to look at there. Our son isnt the most graceful when it comes to coordination so a few of these might be a bit too difficult, but I will have a look all the same.

try "i did it mum" and "smart kids..." games... they have a good selection of games such a puzzles, counting games, colouring in pages, musical games etc, both my kids love them (you get boys and girls versions)

Also, do any of your party have an itouch or iphone, some of the apps on there that are very cheap are designed for toddlers and keep them busy for hours!

Shelby enjoys -

Sonic and Mario at the Olympic Games,
Wonder Pets
Disney Princess (but obviously not for your boy!)
Mario Land
High School Musical
Brain Training (she does the matching puzzles and colours games)

Pegasus - I have an ACE card for mine - much along the same lines as the one you posted. Very useful aren't they but I do have trouble getting games onto it sometimes.

We found them invaluable - saves on having to take a bundle of games with us as we just put them all on the one card.
I haven't heard of the ACE one. We have an M3 Simply and the R4 - both of which are just drag and drop. We have been looking over the last couple of days but can't find anywhere that sells them any more. Even Ebay have stopped so we are just pleased we got ours when we did.
