Any suggestions for games for young child?

Hi guys. Long time lurker first time poster.

My son just turned 3 years old and loves Jellycar. The easy controls and art style is perfect for him. So my question is, can anyone suggest any other games like Jellycar that are supper easy to play and maybe have a car theme. Doesn't have to be a free game but, you know, that doesn't hurt either.

Thanks

4x4 Jam is currently on sale for $1.99 and has a freeplay mode where you can just drive around, with the auto-accelerate on you just tilt to turn. Can't be any easier!

Not the same type of game, but BaDaBoo is great for kids (and free)

I've seen 4-year-olds able to play Flight Control, maybe he could handle Draw Race.

Slotz Racer is easy to play, but hard to play well (and you could play with him on one device!)

And finally...

Do not underestimate the power that Bobble Zoo holds over children!

Hi, welcome to TA. I found some suggestions in this thread. They're kinda old but some good stuff there. You might want to check out CopterKid, it's pretty fun and is really simple.

What was the one with the kid that launches himself into the air and obstacles along the way either proper him upward or slow him down? The goal is to reach the highest distance possible. Bootcamp somethin' or rather? With a little kid? It'd be perfect for this.

There seems to be a general agreement that the new Hello Kitty game is great for kids. You can follow the discussion here.
