I looking for recommendation on good games/apps for kids (7 - 10 year olds) for Google TV.
I asked this very question 3 months ago when my three year old got laid up in a cast. I got 0 replies. Still haven't found anything. But if you do, please let me know.

Jaroo has some good children's shows:

The Dolphin game from Magma Mobile might appeal to your younger child. My 6 year old likes it. It's available in the Google Play store. If you find any others here or on your own I'd appreciate hearing about them. Thanks!
Thanks for the suggestion. I did find that Frogger is also quite fun for kids (and me, love the old arcade games ). Someone should port Donkey Kong to Google TV.
That reminds me, there's a version of Space Invaders in the Play store that runs on Google TV. The Mrs. doesn't want my daughter playing it so I deleted it but I remember it from years ago as a lot of fun. Of course compared to modern games your kids may not think so!
I read that the developer of Mame4Droid was interested in porting it to Google TV, just imagine access to 2000+ games, but he requires NDK support which Google TV does not support.
If they're still young enough to enjoy stories being read to them, try out iStoryBooks. Nice colorful, full screen fairy tale stories, with optional movie mode (timed page turn after reading). It's in the GTV marketplace.
Yup! A great app for beginning readers. Highly recommended.
This was posted on the Google TV blog today about the Ameba app for kids:

Try the aporkalypse game. It is simple and sweet and you kids will definitely enjoy them. It features innovative puzzles with sixty different levels. The game is sure to keep your kids involved for hours. Try the aporkalypse game. It is simple and sweet and you kids will definitely enjoy them.

MouseArt is good for kids, it's basically a paint program that was developed for kids. Other than that, Aquatic 3D Aquarium is an eye candy
Even I've not been able to find applications that would interest kids. Do you have any recommendations?
