What are some good iPhone games for a six year old?

My six year old daughter likes to borrow my iPhone to play games, but she doesn't like most of the kids games she has tried. She like the motion-x poker dice game (I think she is the only kid in first grade who knows what a full house is) and also the GalagaRemix games. What else might she like? Nothing too violent, please.

3 year olds *love* the paint apps - not sure if that scales up to 6 years olds.

"What are some iPhone apps to amuse kids ages 4 - 8?" might be helpful.

I like Grabimo (http://www.apptism.com/apps/grabimo) and so does my niece.

My 7 year old son loves Flight Control, Blocked, Let's Golf, Virtual Pool Lite, and Peggle.

None of them are violent.

Oh, and Fantastic Contraption, but that may not be for every kid and at seven it's just a bit too advanced for him so I often have to help him out.

Sneezies. Very easy but fun to watch the effects of your moves. There is a Lite version you can try out.

Flight Control and Peggle for the win.

Scoops is totally fun. My slightly younger kid loves it. Doodle Jump, one of the iPhone's most popular games, is also great for both of you. Warning: Doodle Jump will eat your life in tiny, 3-minute bites.

Jelly Car. +1 for DoodleJump.

+1 for Scoops and its slightly more complex successor Sky Burger. Addictive!

Color is a great app for kids, especially when waiting for food to arrive at restaurants!! It is a coloring book application with simple, fun pictures for kids to color.

oh yeah, another +1 for DoodleJump

My 6 year old grandson and I play FS5 Hockey together but he really likes Skee Ball, Flight Control and HoopsLite by himself. He quickly loses interest in Paper Toss.
