I was worried that my daughter might just be glued to the games, but she enjoys recording her voice the most. We also bought reading and foreign language games so it will be a good use of her screen time. Will be perfect for our summer road trip. I'll have to borrow it to look up stuff on the internet while we are away from home!

There is already a better version of the DSi being released next year with a bigger screen. This should be considered before a purchase for the holidays. The DSi itself isn't enough of an improvement over the DSlite. Plus the loss of the GBA slot you can't play Guitar Hero or help complete the pokedex in diamond, pearl, or platinum by sending pokemon from the GBA games to the new games.

The UK Nintendo Power equivalent has a european release date of the new version in the first quarter of 2010 so if you already have a working older model it might be a good idea to hold off this holiday season.

      It's not the best because it should have a car charger fot travel and they should have made longer battery life. It's good because it's great for kids and short travel.

        This is the 2nd handheld nintendo we had to purchase because the inside "collar" on the plug came loose. It definitly was not from rough use or yanking on the plug. It would have cost $80 to repair, so just decided to buy a new one
