2011 List of Nintendo DS games for ages 6-10

A Listmania! list by Jared Castle "Oregon writer" (Southern Oregon)
(VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "Great for kids 10 years and younger, the Nintendo DS is easier for them to hold and operate than a console controller.

This isn't a comprehensive list of all games available, rather it reflects the Nintendo DS games we own. Please let me know if you find this list helpful and don't hesitate to send me an email if you have more questions."

Super Scribblenauts
2.  Super Scribblenauts by Warner Bros

And before you worry about your children learning words you don't want them using, Super Scribblenauts' E10+ rating ensures there are exclusions from the dictionary."
