    Default Nintendo DS games --non reading

    DD is doing well at learning to read, but finding that games that are character based, that you'd assume would be geared to her age (five) like STrawberry shortcake, for example, are a lot of just wandering around and reading stuff.
    She likes actual playing.
    She loooves minigames, like on Super Mario.
    She likes ones like Mario, racing, etc.
    What would you recomend for her age?
    Ithink she'd bore of racing games with no opponent.

    Any character ones that are actually good games, not just crappy thrown together ones to make money, or that don't require a ton of reading?

    mariokart. D loves playing it and he is only just 3. You race against others too. D also like Kirby, oh and there is cooking mama (think that is it) where you get to make recipes. Both my kids like that.

    kirby, that sounds promising, thanks! He's kinda like a mario sorta game right, like in how you play? Just difft character? He's pink too right, so that'd sell him to her lol.

    She likes racing games but more so on tv, like wii, because then she has someone playing with her.

    I'm going to make ds give her my copy of Carnival games he has kinda taken over, too, since her ds is actually OUR ds. (I got a used xbox for dh and ds, and a 3ds for dd and I, shared gifts)
