Miss T was beside herself with excitement when we told her we had a new game for the Nintendo 3DS just for her - and Teddy Together has become a firm favourite over the past few weeks. Her older brothers have been getting into the game, too, as they've been helping her learn how to play - I think they've secretly enjoyed taking part!
In Teddy Together you are given your very own (virtual) teddy bear. You name him, care for him and get to know him. As you spend more time with him he will start asking questions about you - your name, about your family, your favourite foods. Teddy never forgets what you tell him (although you can change an answer if you need to!) so can talk to you about what you've already said.

Teddy Together is unique in that it really is designed for younger children to play. Teddy talks to you, as well as displaying the question on the screen, and the controls are really simple. Miss T had her team of scribes to help type in answers, but many of the questions had buttons to choose an answer from, which she could do on her own (and made clear to the rest of us that she wanted to!)
There are no in-game purchase options, and no wifi or internet connectivity, making the game a great safe place for your little one to play. Teddy will also only ask a certain number of questions each day, and only be interested in certain activities (like cooking) at certain points (when he is hungry!) so this is great for shorter attention spans.
