What an awesome deal Nintendo has going on now for the Nintendo DS Lite! They dropped the price from $169.99 down to $99 and it is not for a sale it is now the new retail price of the DS Lite! How great is that now that it is summer time and people are traveling. This is a great price to pick one up for when you know you will be on the road for a long time and need something to keep the kids occupied in the car or on the plane.
When I was a kid we have Game Boy, then it was really exciting to go to the Game Boy Color, now that to me as a kid was like almost the most exciting thing! Now they have gone even more outstanding with technology and the price is a great one for a kid’s (or adult) handheld game system. I remember sitting in the car playing my Game Boy when we went on trips, even if they were just an hour or two down the road I had my Game Boy. My kids had the chance to play it a few times before it finally gave out completely which that lasted a long time I got it when I was about 10 years old and it lasted until last a few weeks ago, so almost 17 years is awesome! I want my kids to have the same fun as I did when we travel!
Have you checked out the games that they have for the DS Lite? They have so many of them! I would love to get my kids a DS Lite, it is looking like that is on their Christmas wishlists for this year since they have seen all their friends have them. These would be great to have in the car when we travel so the kids are entertained:) My favorite for Game Boy was Mario and tetras and they have the Mario Game for the DS!
They have a Crayola Treasure Adventure Game that I think my son would love! They also have a lot of educational games like Reader Rabbit (I remember using it as a kid on the PC how cool now the kiddos can play it on the long car drives)!
I can’t wait to get my kids a DS and with the price drop it is a great price for me to get one for the kids! Do your kids have one? What are their favorite games?
