* The two ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3'' games plays this trope straight. Especially the NintendoDS title (see image). There's also the sole ''VideoGame/MyLittlePonyFriendshipGarden'' G2 title, in which you raise a virtual pony.
* ''Any'' title released for early educational consoles like the ''[=VTech=] V-Smile'' (especially it's SpinOffBabies-riffic ''V-Smile Baby''), the original ''Franchise/LeapFrog Leapster'', and ''Sega Pico'' (and it's spinoff ''Advanced Pico Beena'') tend to be this. They tend to use licensed cartooon characters to make up for it though. Averted in some later games for educational consoles: The MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic game for the [=LeapPad Exporer=] had Discord, a extremely dangerous and competent villain, as the antagonist.

* [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-Zagging]] with the 2003 StrawberryShortcake games. While the NintendoDS and the first GameBoyAdvance games are like this, the subsequent GameBoyAdvance and [=PS2=] games avert this straight. The first two PC titles are also like this, but averted with the third title (which was a port of the [=PS2=] title). Play straight, however, with the 2009 iOS titles.

* ''FarmVille''
* ''RobotUnicornAttack'' revels in its over-the-top SugarBowl-ness.
* {{Franchise/Barbie}} games tend to be about as unthreatening as you can get. There are surprising exceptions to this, however, and some of the games can actually be a legitimate challenge.
* An infamous commercial for VideoGame/{{Blur}} tried to market it as an "X-Treme and totally not kiddy" racing game with kart racer-style weapons by juxtaposing the game with the most SugarBowl-y kart racer they could conceive (and an obvious TakeThat at MarioKart.)

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. While the game itself is a standard, if a little goofy shooter, it's shown in the "Meet The Pyro" short that this is how the Pyro sees the world.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' games are infamous for being games that ''seem'' like this until you start to notice the little bits of EldritchAbomination and NightmareFuel scattered about, and then the final boss is always [[VileVillainSaccharineShow a refugee straight from Hell]].

* Any video game made by Fisher-Price. This shouldn't be surprising considering their target market tends to be for children under five. Anything deemed "too scary, too questionable or too objectionable" is changed or removed. Also, their games are primarily {{Edutainment Game}}s, which this trope usually goes hand-in-hand with. [[note]]The games are also developed by Knowledge Adventure- the folks behind the JumpStart series of Edutainment titles.[[/note]]

** Late 90's VideoGame/ReaderRabbit, especially ''Baby'', ''Toddler'', and ''Thinking Adventures''. ''Preschool'' through ''Second Grade'' are also this, albeit at a slightly lesser extent (in that you now have an ineffectual, bumbling villain named Spike the Porcupine to content with).
** Some VideoGame/JumpStart titles, those targeted at Kindergarteners or younger to be precise, also fits this trope.

* From the revived version of ''TheSiflAndOllyShow'', the episode "Olly's Top 3". Olly describes his three favorite videogames of all time. Numbers 1 and 3 are basically torture porn games, but his number 2 pick is ''Pretty Ponies Daycare''.

* ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' has the entire premise of being a human being moving to a peaceful village of cartooney animals and living peacefully while making friends. Resetti even ''lampshades'' it at one point if you keep hassling him:
--> How 'bout playin' a fantasy without any epic battles, no fightin' against the odds to save some magical realm? Wouldn't it be nice to just lay down your sword, pick a few pretty daisies, and just be... nice?
