Wanna make your kid be quiet for the whole entire car or plane trip? Get him one of these and a small arsenal of games...you're golden. On the day that I got him this (2 years ago), he disappeared for a couple of hours. Pros: Lots of games available. The joy of silence outweighs the price of the thing. Use it as leverage to get them to do the dishes. Cons: You might have to pry this away from your child.
I have one of these and it is the best handheld gaming systems ever!!!
This is too addicting to keep on hand- My boyfriend and I both got one about a year ago and went through games like maniacs! I was a total gameboy junkie growing up and had every one of the versions (b&w, color, advance, sp, ladeda), this is the morphed/grown up version- its amazing. You can connect and play another player wirelessly (SO FUN), dual screens may seem complicated, but they actually make things easier, and the controls are great. Definitely a buy for any 10 year old- or college student really, unless of course you want them to actually do their work.
