    Plucky's 3D Adventure on XBLIG is another one of those games that doesn't have that satanic cartoon violence that almost every other game does as well. It's basically just a 3D Mario with no enemies, you just make your way through the levels as fast as you can.

    Custer's Revenge is a good history lesson.

    I was fortunate enough to be born into a home that had an Atari 2600, and I always really dug Q*Bert, Berzerk, Pitfall, Space Invaders, Astroids, and Donkey Kong, from what I recall.

    I'd recommend Big Bird's Hide & Speak on the NES. The controls are insanely simple (the D-pad is one button and the A/B buttons act as the same), my niece has been playing it since she was 2. Its not the most exciting game, but its got several mini-games and each is a different difficulty, so they can start out really simple and progress into the more complex games.

    Also, if you have a Sega Pico, at the end of every game there is a coloring activity. My niece loves them, and make for a good game when they get bored with the simpler games.

    Er...

    I suppose it's also a morality tale and a sex primer. (Cactus do not make for comfortable sex platforms.)

    More than a decade ago I got Pinocchio on SNES for my nephews and later on my kids spend a few good hours on it. There's a bunch of platformers on the SNES and Genesis with Disney IPs with beautiful 2D graphics. Not always good games but what you are looking for is simplicity.

    My daughter is two and her favorite is Pictochat on the DS. She just loves to sit and draw pictures, and gets a giggle when I send her drawings from mine.
