Excerpt: Beautiful console, perfect graphics, affordable games available for it - made my daughter's year! Bonus is the long life battery power. After charging she can play for hours and hours before having to recharge. Highly recommended as a gift for your 7yo up...
Great for everyone in the family regardless of age or experience

Excerpt: The Nintendo DS has been sweeping the gaming world by storm since its release a few years ago. It sells more on a month-to-month basis than any other videogame system or handheld under the sun. Yes, even more than the Wii. The Lite version of the Nintendo DS keeps all of its features intact, such as backwards compatibility with GameBoy Advance (GBA) games, brighter screens, much better-looking, and more compact.
Excerpt: I've had every game boy since the original - in fact, I still like to play my original Tetris game. I loved the improvements that came with Game Boy Advance, so I was excited when dh gave me this as a gift. Unlike every other GB incarnation, this one cannot play all old cartridges - it can play most GBA ones. The new cartridges are TINY - literally a thick postage stamp size - and can be hard to keep track of. Some integrated storage would have been thoughtful.
Excerpt: I purchased my DS lite used less than a year ago, and I have to say, I love this little machine! It really is a lot of fun, and has a great many titles available for it. I never owned the original Nintendo DS model, nor do I have the DSi or DSXL. So I am not able to really compare the DS lite to the other Nintendo DS models, but I can explain what makes the DS lite such a great portable gaming device.
