Some advice on selecting games for Kindle 3 & Kindle 4?

Hi all, I need some advice from the more experienced folks.

My daughter (8yrs) is getting Kindle 4 for Christmas. I've already prepared a folder with books for her, but I'd also like to get her a game or two. The thing is, she doesn't speak English and there are just few games for Kindle 4. Can you recommend me some good games suitable for that age that are not word-related (i.e. no Scrabble, etc.)?

I'm also getting my parents some games, they both have K4 and both wouldn't be very happy with word games, even though they understand English. My mom loves Solitaire&Sudoku, but it isn't available for K4. I think I'll get my dad the only poker game I saw available for Kindle 4, and my mom a Mahjong for K4, but I would greatly appreciate other suggestions too.

p.s. I'm also getting some games for me (Kindle 3) and I don't mind word games or strategy games; I'd love some recommendations of good games for the unexperienced user.

You can try Pixel Perfect (Holiday Puzzle and Puzzle), Number Slide, Pirate Stash (like Sokoban), Mine Sweeper, all is free. For paid Games, I prefer : Sudoku Works, Jewels and next.

I see that you're in Europe. Active content for the Kindle is only currently available for customers in the US.

True that! My Kindle is registered on a US address, one of the reasons being easier access to much of the free Amazon content, otherwise not available outside US.
I downloaded some free games and I was surprised to find out it is actually quite easy to play them on Kindle - I thought it would be much clumsier. Very nice surprise.
So I'm definitely investing some money in few games to have in handy when reading is not an option.
