I know that there are other app threads which I have tried to pick though to find what in need but they are not really relevant to what iam after, so I am appealing to all you with young children to assist me in find some decent apps.

I have 2 young girls one aged 3 and another 5 and iam looking for some decent apps to pre load on their Vega’s so come Christmas morning so that they are ready to go. Now I have looked at a lot of the games/apps etc that they play on my iphone but these do not seem to be available on Android.

So what do you children play on?

Thanks

Angry birds - very easy to play.
Slice it - might be a little hard but will get them thinking.

Are 2 the do work full screen. I've been testing a few and a lot don't do the full screen thing.

I have all ready download those but thanks anyway. To give you an idea on what they normally play on things like Cut the Rope, Glass Tower, Cat Physics, Dora, Coin Frenzy, max injury and snap etc.

Not tried these on the vega yet so cant confim how they appear but these are some I have on my mobile and galaxy tab that the kids enjoy playing.

MagicMarker-Lets you fingerdraw in neon and save drawings to use as wallpapers etc.
Bubble Popper
Stadium Horn-very annoying but kids like the various noises
Connect4
Kids Paint- They love this and we would draw noughts n crosses,hangman etc or you can use photos and draw designs etc on them.
Santas present toss
Pool Break
Solitaire
Tetris
Spotify-do they like music?

Im sure theres lots more but not had a proper chance yet to search market for apps for my sons vega. One thing I am worried about is parental controls as really dislike my children having whole access to web.

I will give those a try thanks, but as for being worried about children having access to whole web i feel exactly the same. I have set them emails up with AOL which i am trying to get to work on the vega but these are set to only accept mail from people in their address book.

Is there any way to use parental controls on the vega?

Im not sure but will be finding out if their is a way so will update you if I come across anything.You can use google safe search and adjust what appears in searches so at least that will be a start.
