Submission + - Programming For 5-year olds?

gers0667 writes: "My boss' son has become interested in programming video games. The problem: the kid is only 5 years old. His son also knows I'm the computer nerd at work and has told me he wants me to make the game for him. That's hardly an educational experience, so I looked around for something that would be suitable for a young child to learn and play on. I haven't found much, as most products, like the Lego Mindstorms, are for an older crowd. Does anyone have any suggestions in this area?"

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
