    Default Games for 3 year-old WITHOUT choking hazards?

    Looking for ideas for simple games to get DD1, who's 3 yrs old. Most seem to have small pieces that would be a choking risk for DD2, who's 17 months, and puts everything she finds in her mouth. So, anything with dice, marbles, small 'people' etc. would be out.

    We have a memory game and a large size animal dominos set. Any other ideas?

    Posted on another board game thread but repeating some ideas here:
    Uno Moo (haven't tried it but it looks good!)
    Spot It
    Cranium Hullaballoo (not a board game but no choking hazards and lots of fun!)
    Hiss (card game, good reviews)
    Cranium Caribou

    Have you tried playing games only at a table without dd? Busytown is fun if you can deal with choking hazards. Hi Ho Cherry-o too.

    The Curious George Discovery Beach game is all contained (except the spinner and cards) so no choking hazards and DD likes it.

    Life on Earth memory game
    large sized dominos
    Candyland seemed to be Ok around my 15 month old, although she did try and run away with various cards!
    Go Fish card game

    Stay far away from the "orchard" game - we've had to put ours away because the fruit are choking hazards!

    I think I'll take my Graco stroller and my Lucky Ducks and sit in a corner as the outcast. I like that game. eta- granted I haven't played it since I was little but I have fond memories!!

    It's a fun game, and we had 2 of them, but they're possessed. Randomly, in the middle of the night, it starts quacking.
