    My niece is turning 4 in a couple weeks and I'd like to get her a PC game appropriate for her age, but I haven't a clue as to what is good and what isn't. Any hints?

    i asked the same question here and nobody replied.
    my suggestion is to go to www.disney.com, find the section called playhouse disney. if you paid 50 bucks for a year, then you can let your niece play lots of interesting games. even my 19 year old enjoyed the games verrrrry much. yes they are that good. give it a shoot.

    Take a look at a Leap Pad. They are very educational and don't tie up the big computer.

    Alan,

    My daughters (currently 5 and 8) have enjoyed (and still do enjoy) the following:

    1) The Clifford games - Reading Adventure, Learning Adventure, Thinking Adventure
    2) Some of the Barbie Games - Barbie Veteranarian, Barbie Horseback, maybe one other.
    3) Reader Rabbit stuff is pretty good.
    4) LeapPad is pretty neat, also.
    5) Some others that I can't remember.

    My 8 year old is an animal fanatic, so anything in that direction is obviously good for her.
