5 Great Electronic Games for Kids

Updated on November 24, 2012

Which Electronics Games for Kids are Good and Affordable? Here are 5 Great Choices

I love electronic games, and I've enjoyed my share over the years as have my kids. Before cellphones were more about apps and entertainment, before every home seemed to have at least one or two computers, there were the days of the old school game consoles. There were also a variety of electronic toys and devices. You'll still find some really worthwhile electronic games in the $20 and under range, and they are great as entertainment alternatives when you just don't have the money for the high tech stuff. Here are some recommendations from a family of 10!

Flash Cubes Games

Flash cubes games are modern interpretations of some older faves. Yahtzee, Scrabble, Boggle and Simon are among the choices. They are perfect for hands-on learners, and they challenge the normal approach to the known games.
