I thought I'd get a list of games together that would be suitable for my young ones and the family. I've got a 3 year old going on 4 and a 19 month old, so I'm looking for stuff he can play with us that she won't destroy or ingest.

I based the list on the Children's Game top 100, filtered by user recommendations for ages 3 and up. Also listed for reference are manufacturer recommended ages.

Maybe I'll go beyond the top 100 someday, but it took me a surprising amount of time just to get through the first 100. I wish there were an easier way to filter a list based on more obscure variables!

Sorry, kiddo, Dad loves you, but we can't swing this one right now. $125 - $150 is a bit much...

I've heard great things, but given the limited availability I'm thinking about Froggy Boogie (see below) which seems akin to this one...
