Last fall the Library announced on its webpage that ESRB rated “eC for Early Childhood” games are available as part of the Family Video Games section. The staff at the Children’s Desk thought it might be helpful to highlight the current and coming Early Childhood games in the collection.
The following list of games are all rated eC meaning they are intended for young audiences between 2 and 4 years old. Any and all ESRB ratings can be searched in the catalog by typing “ESRB Rating” followed by the desired rating. More information on the ESRB rating system can be found here.
As you can see, the selection at the library is fairly limited if you don’t have a Wii or are not a fan of Sesame Street. Please help us out by suggesting a purchase of a rated eC game your child has enjoyed!
