What Are Some Easy Games For A 3 Year Old To Learn How To Use The DS?

I recently bought my youngest grandson (almost 3) a Nintendo DS.  I would like to get some games for him that would teach him how to use the DS.  He does not talk yet so it is difficult to communicate with him on something like this.  Are there any games that will help him to learn the DS and what would be some easy games for him to play?

Please note that these forums are for technical discussion only, not general game discussion.

 

I would suggest Super Mario Bros., which is simple and has a relatively low difficulty level.  Another simple game is Mario Party DS.  As he gets older, try things like Mario Kart DS, a Dragon Quest game, or a Zelda game.

i can suggest the games my son loved at that age, dora and diego games are good, and do not require reading skills, smart kids and smart kids 2 are excellent games for little ones, and dora puppy.  hope this helps.  mario games were too advanced for them at that age, and my 5 yr old stil has trouble with it.  but she loves the ones i listed and navigates them like a champ.

i'm not exactly sure you should let a 3 year old play a ds because there's a good chance you could break the hinge but if you must, Video games Rated eC or early childhood by ESRB are good

A 3-year old shouldn't be playing with a DS.

Give him a toy.

Early Childhood games, I remember one of my siblings got his DS when he was 4.. I lent him my old Cars: Mater National game. It helped him real good, whenever he didn't want to eat, we'd have to distract him to play the game and he'd eat perfectly. Dora,Diego,Thomas,Cars, games like that will help him. Don't let him play it that much! He can become very addicted to the game and when he gets older, this can lead to some vision/addiction problems.
