I know from the survey I did a few months ago many parents are looking for video games for the holidays that are kid friendly. With so many more adult and teen games finding something fun and safe for smaller children is a priority.
Enter the “Nintendogs and Cats” for the Nintendo 3DS.
These games are completely cute. You get to select the type of dog or kitten your child wants to take care of and they can handle it from there. The puppies and kittens need training, have outfits and can compete in challenges. The pictures are adorable (check them out on Amazon). One of the kittens reminds me of my cat when she was so small I could hold her in the palm of my hand.
If you have been trying to communicate to your child the responsibility of having their own real life pet, this would be a great first step. (Anyone having flash backs to Neopets? I didn’t have one but most of my friends killed their electronic pets pretty quickly!)
And best of all you know the game is safe and non-violent for your younger kids.

Since I needed to get a kid’s opinion I spoke with a friend who has two kids ages 4 and 7. They gave the game a try and both of them really liked it! The youngest kid used it in 2D on their machine and the 7 year old in 3D. They both gave it 2 Thumbs Up!
So if you are looking for a family friendly game for your children check out these games!
