Any useful / educational games for a two year old?

Looking around for some games for my two year old nephew, so far "FirstWords Animals" has caught my eye but with no Lite version I'm unsure of its overall execution. So an impression of that would be helpful, but more so any other recommendations for games out there.

Thank you for any replies.

Yes, I have seen quite a few applications for little ones in fact. I am on my ipod touch so, I can't post links but I will get some for you. You can look in the app store under the family and kid section under games, BUT I guess you did that already.

I think you're on the wrong site. Most people here are either into carnage or super relaxing games

I would recommend a game called Preschool Arcade. Another is Toddler Tapping Zoo. Great for little kids...and they seem to enjoy them.

Edit: I've tried both. They have simple controls but still very entertaining which generally suits me anyway.

Uhh, Tap Tap Revenge has a "Kids" mode...

Here are a couple I just found though:

Preschool Arcade
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=285523979&mt=8

Preschool Adventure
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=286526367&mt=8

But those might be a little to advanced...

Edit:
Here's some more:

Kid Art
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=293849143&mt=8

Kid TV
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=300116747&mt=8

ABC Animals
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=292402752&mt=8

If you go under "Education" in apps, there are a lot more!


oh wait...none of these are recommendations...I just thought you needed help finding some...sorry.
I haven't actually tried any of these out.

Albie what are you talking about?

Preschool apps are some of the most hardcore apps available right now!

Yeah, I've already looked into those sections, what I'm really after is elaborate feedback of apps and even recommendations of those apps that fly right under the radar. Thanks for already having some in mind, I anticipate thise links.

What a way to welcome a new TA member Albie

Welcome to TA and your not on the wrong site, since some members have kids or have small nieces (my niece is 3) or nephews.
