Bad Piggies: build a cart to carry your pig to the finish line. Requires planning, theorizing, testing, refining - the basic scientific cycle. Is goofy and fun, but can get frustrating when you fail and aren't sure what to change. Kids, however, have vastly higher tolerance for that frustration than adults. To them, it's playing. Age 5+

Séamus is 3 and loves Bad Biggies.

I will note that he is not into winning, he just loves playing with it. That said, he has cleared a lot of it. He cleared a heck of a lot of Angry Birds as well.

But the iPad is a sometimes thing with him. We got lucky that way. He likes to play for a bit then puts it down and doesn't pick it up for a couple days. My wife's nephew is obsessed with tech. They finally got it into his head that not all iPhones are his. So we don't have to be as firm with boundaries and limits.
