Excerpt: My five year son got the Nintendo DS for christmas last year, this has been an awesome gift for him!! Well worth the money, he is learning new things every day. There seems to be alot more variety of games out there for this game system, than the psp that my other son has. He has definitely taken good care of this. He has a car charger, so he can take this on long trips or to the doctor's office, keeps them occupied if there is going to be a long wait somewhere.
Excerpt: What a nice little portable gaming unit. I wish I had one of these when I was a kid. It is expensive if you buy it new. But why do that? There are tons of these units out on Craigslist or Ebay with extras. I only paid $70 for my son's and it came with a game and a case. I also got a SuperCard DS-One for it so I can download roms from the internet. The touchscreen is pretty cool, works with the stylus or just your finger.
Excerpt: The DS is awsome, theres never a dull moment when playing a game. There are so many actions you have to do to play the games. The games are endless and most of them teach you something. Its alot more interesting than the gameboy color and the gameboy advanced. It has lighted screens which makes it alot easier to play.
Excerpt: My son received this for his birthday last year. He LOVES it...very easy to use for younger children. He loves to play different games on it....Like STARWARS (his FAVE)......bionicles, frogger, beanz and others. You can also play game boy games on the same system...one side plays Nintendo ds games and the other side plays gameboy games. I highly recommend this game for all children. It has a powercord to recharge it .
Excerpt: Its great for small kids but if your even close to age of like 10 .. this thing is just sad. The PSP replaces this with flying colors. I found one on the side of the road and in good condition and well im about to just put it back where i found it if you know what i mean.

Excerpt: The DS is great for gaming! Many people and in love with PSP instead but I sure miss my DS. The games are really nice and it's good for the young and the old. Most games come in the DS edition. If you have one don't give it up if you like it any. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: I asked my husband to buy the Nintendo DS for me for Christmas last year and he did. I love it. I'm more into the older games, but I have found that the new brain games are great. I like the idea that I can take it with me on trips, etc. I also like the fact that it's not big so that it's not in the way or anything like that.
Excerpt: My son bought me a red/black one and I just can not put it down. He got me 5 games for it and I am hooked! I would say buy one for everyone on your list. It comes in a great many colors and has more games than any one person could ever play in one lifetime. Each one I've seen is great and the grafics are great. Almost on level with PS3. The games are very affordable and there is something for everyone. From 1 to 4 players and added fun with the Wi-Fi connection.
Excerpt: I have one of the original DS units and I love that it also plays the SP versions of games too. There is an excellent selection of games from puzzles to adventures. The unit is a little heavy and the thin stylus gets hard to hold. So, marathon gaming on it is not fun. Those are the only detriments and I would buy it again in a hot second!
