On this list I will be compiling the best children's DSi games available on the market today.

The Top Ten Children's DSi Games
So without further ado, lets start with number ten on our exceptional list of children's DSi games!
Chicken Shoot DSi
10) Chicken Shoot
To start off my list of the top ten children's DSi games, I will be going for pure entertainment.
Chicken shoot is a great DSi game, which I even find slightly addictive myself. If you are looking for something to keep the kids quite (this is primarily a boys dsi game) then Chicken Shoot for the DSi will keep your children occupied at home, or on the move.
With several different game modes, scenarios, and 2-4 player co-operative modes, chicken shoot is a great childrens dsi game!
Chicken shoot DSi brings together a highly humorous cartoon based quick shooter, while it is mostly for entertainment it is also a great way to improve your child's reflexes with the Nintendo DSi!
Barbie Island Princess for the Nintendo DS
9) Barbie - Island Princess
Barbie - Island Princess is a great way to keep your daughter occupied with this great girls DSi game. This game incorporates quite a few puzzles to keep your child thinking, while at the same time boasting an impressive musical score and cute characters. This compelling blend makes Barbie - Island Princess one of the best girls DSi games on the market today.
Barbie Island Princess for the Nintendo DSi has a heartwarming story which is exceptionally well told in this adventure game for girls. The only downside is that after this has been completed two or three times it does lose re-playability value, a common problem with adventure games. I would not worry about this too much though, as this game will take a long time for your daughter to work through, even if she stays with her eyes glued to her DSi.
Playmobil Pirates on Nintendo DS
8) Playmobil Pirates and Knights on the DSi
While this is technically two games, both Playmobil Pirates and Playmobil Knights are some of the best children's DSi games to be released this Christmas (2009) They both have simple gameplay yet intricate plots to keep you interested!
The Playmobil brand has been taken from its inception as a hands on toy, to one of the leading portable DSi Childrens games. I have to admit I have spent more than a few hours on my old DS with the previous games from Playmobil at a friends house.
In Playmobil Knights for the DSi you go from a humble farmer to the weilder of magical weapons and controller of dragons.
Playmobil Pirates seems to aim for slightly older children on the DSi, with more complex gameplay, mini missions, ship upgrades, trading and more!
Both of these games make great children's gifts, and easily make it in to my top ten childrens DSi games!
Remember though, buy these games for your children and you may not hear a peep from them for weeks, these Children's DSi games can be addictive!
Pony Luv on DSi
7) Pony Luv on the DSi
For the young girls in your life who are pestering you for a pet, get them a Pony!
While this great girls DSi game may not be as good as a real Pony, your daughter will love this top DSi game. in Pony Luv DS you can raise your pony, enter it in shows, races and competitions, and eventually get your pony to the top dog spot.
While this is not personally my cup of tea, these pet care games are generally a great way to keep the youngsters entertained, and maybe they will learn a thing or two in the process!
Harry Potter DSi
6) Harry Potter - Years 1 to 4
While I am not usually a fan of games ripped from films, I was pleasantly surprised by the demo of Harry Potter for the DSi (The full game can be pre-ordered for Christmas with the Amazon Price Guarantee!). The Harry Potter game for the DSi boasts a long, humorous story line, regular plot twists and lovable characters.
While magic and wizards may not be every child's cup of tea, Harry Potter for the DSi will delight any child, boy or girl, who follows the wizards story. With it's enchanting play style and cut-scenes, not to mention graphics that really show the power of the DSi, Harry Potter is one of the great DSi games to add to your collection.
Looney Tunes DSi
5) Looney Tunes Cartoon Conductor
I have to admit being rather biased in this choice, I loved the Looney Tunes characters when I was little, and still love them to this day. Never the less, the Looney Tunes Cartoon Conductor is a great addictive game for your kids, mixing cartoon fun with musical mayhem to endear your children to one of the greatest artistic genres.
While Looney Tunes Cartoon Conductor (Also known as looney Tunes Cartoon Concerto) is a brilliant DS and DSi game, it does not fit all children, some do find it rather tedious or boring, fortunately once the kids have gone to bed you can give it a go too!
New Super Mario Bros. DSi
4) New Super Mario Bros.
The New Super Mario brothers game for the DSi might not be that new anymore, but it is an amazing game that any child will love. It's simple yet addictive gameplay shoots the new super mario bros. towards the top of my children's DSi games list.
New Super Mario Bros. DSi is a great game where you will have to stomp your way towards the end of the game. It also includes a whole raft of power-ups to help you complete the game with style.
This is one of my all time favorite DSi games, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for some pick up and play fun!

3) Th!nk Logic Brain Trainer for Kids
I have always been a fan of brain trainer DSi games, and this is no exception. Think Logic Brain Trainer for Kids is a great children's brain trainer. In fact Th!nk Logic Brain Trainer for Kids is one of the only children's brain trainers available on the Nintendo DSi.
Brain Trainers are very important to help young children's minds grow, especially with all the distractions in today's modern world. Since Th!nk Logic Children's Brain Trainer for kids is targeted just at children they will not feel overawed by any function of the Brain Training DSi game

Pokemon SoulSilver is the latest in the Pokemon series, and promises to offer a huge range of multi-player options as well as new Pokemon and regions.
