Does anyone have any recommendations for games on their iPhones for 3-4 year olds. I've got the 'Learning Touch - First Words' sampler but would love some suggestions.

there are quite a few different puzzle game apps. I got disney princess puzzles and a few others for DD .. all free apps.

My 3.5 son loves

Gigglebies (paid for but very good)
Toy story memory (pairs) game (free)
Doodle buddy (free I think) good for free form drawing
Alphabet tracing (free) as the name suggests
Angry birds (paid) believe it or not!
Pocket phonics (free I think)
Pepper pig (paid) games but you don't really win or lose if you know what I mean
He also likes the cake making ones like like sundae maker etc
I don't think the games you choose have to always be educational as I'm sure they'll learn something from whatever (even if it is just hand eye coordination for eg)

I generally just have a look at the kids games 'free' chart every now and then as children are so fickle I don't want to be buying too much!

Enjoy

DD likes Angelina Ballerina, anything by Duck Duck Moose, Monkey's Pre-school Lunchbox, Make me a Princess, Hatch!, Toddler Teasers, Animatch.

All small children seem to find Talking Carl hilarious (we had the talking cat one but she kept accidentally hitting the 'pay for upgrade' button so I got rid of it.

Mine (3 and 5) like:
angry birds
Cut the rope
Lunchbox
Sonic racing
Create a car (better on iPad than iphone though)
Steeplechase
The where's Wally app (me too!)
Doodle jump

And spend far too much time looking at old Muppets clips on YouTube.

Sheeplechase NOT steeplechase (predictive text....)

Ours (b1.5 and g3.5) both love 'talking carl' and 'smack that gugl' both by the same people. very fun and great graphics. 3 yr old daughter currently loves Angelina Ballerina app, and Dream Bride, a sort of 'dress up Barbie' type app. Also recommend 'Toy Story 3' matching game and 'Trucks and Diggers'.

my daughter loves the Paperdolly app. I think it's for the ipad only, but she spends lots of time playing with it. hope this helps.
