I just found out that the designer of viva topo, Manfred Ludwig,
has designed many games for kids.

I found a BGG list of the best game board designers, is there a list of the
best children board game designers?

One of the best and most prolific designer of children's games that are fun for adults is Heinz Meister.

I don't think a list like that would necessarily be beneficial, because the best and most prolific designer's have done a range of games across all ages, and each child is a bit unique in the style and mechanics that are attractive to them. My recommendation is to introduce some the games that are designed for children but also show the simple games that interest you and see what they enjoy and appreciate.
