Our kids all have a Nintendo DS and it’s been one of the best purchases we have made. We used to take them everywhere (before the older two got iPod Touches). Our 6 year old still loves his and we take it on trips, to places where we know we’ll be waiting for awhile and sometimes we get it out and play each other in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. One of our favorite DS games.
Walmart is running a Cyber Week deal on a Nintendo DS Lite Bundle. Starting at $149 (used to be $179), the bundle includes your color choice of a Nintendo DS Lite, choice of 2 Nintendo DS games from their list and an accessory kit. I was impressed with their game choices.
Here are some of the features of the Nintendo DS Lite:
- Dual-screen game play, including intuitive touchscreen interface on bottom screen
- Play both Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance games
- Local DS to DS wireless functionality and online functionality via Nintendo Wi-Fi connection
- Comes in a variety of stylish colors
There is a constant stream of new Nintendo DS games that come out, so you will never be short of game choices. We buy at least one a month to keep their collection nice and fresh. We love the portability, the kids just love that it’s fun!
