Kids is in This List

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Kids in the following list:

Nurture Child-Like Imagination in 3-6 Year-Olds

These games are for children under seven years old, who will, with some help, discover activities they want to try that will expand their imaginations while establishing the role of your guidance and engagement as part of the gaming world as they grow up. The more open imagination of young children lends itself to games that offer an open world. Rather than forcing the player in a particular direction open world games let players explore wherever they want. The games here offer unusual and age-appropriate experiences that are often educational but keep the emphasis on the sheer joy of interactive play rather than hard learning.
