Hi there !
LOL....he's not the only one. My son is 6 yo and doesn't have one, nor do I have
My kids have one... sort of.
Hey Sue ,Brianna does not have a DS.
We do have a game she plays on mine it's Personal Trainer Math, the only reason why we have it and she uses the DS is because it's a learning game.
She has a Leapster 2 that she uses and that's all educational. We also have a Wii and she does use that but the Wii isn't your average video game system it's actual exercise.
I let my son play Sudoko on my DS, but I figured it would help him learn to pay attention to everything around him to help him in his chess tournaments. Then daddy sold his hand-held Sony to get a DS for his 7th birthday.
I personally like having one for the parents & then letting the kids play with it ... I think you have more control that way. But hubby & I disagree I guess, LOL.
He only has 2 games and they force him to read. So in that aspect we like it. I do put it up high while he's at school so all of his homework & gymnastics are done before gets the DS.
Oh BTW, I noticed nobody explained what a DS is for you ... it's the new Nintendo hand-held. It takes over the Gameboy, but does allow you to play old Gameboy games on it as well. We play games that are about 20 years old on it.
Living in the past makes your life history.
Yeah that's exactly why I didnt get the new DS-i.
didn't need the camera and mp3 player, they have shakers and I've got an ipod. And we still have some of the old "gameboy video" cartages the kids like to watch.
Whew! Am I glad those came out a few days after my son's birthday. Daddy really had a hard time trying to decide if he should give it a little late or not. My son often goes back & play all the games my hubby bought when he was a teen.
Too bad. That has always been one of my favorite things with Nintendo.
