Flash Plugin

I have a toddler who likes the teletubbie games. They are all flash. I've downloaded the flash files and can play them offline through firefox or mozilla.

I'm currently in the process of setting up a user on my FC4 which is pretty much locked down only to the games I have posted for her. However is there a way to get the flash plug in to load these flash games from the command prompt? I tried swf_play but it's not interactive. Or is there a browser out there which is extremely light weight which can run the flash plugin?

For the browser, I think FIrefox is as good as it gets. It will run the flash plugin.

I was afriad of that. Firefox loads a little slow (at least for a toddler) on my computer. Not to mention too many other buttons to click... then I get that phrase... "daddy fix..."
