My son loves his Gameboy Advance. This came in really handy when traveling on a plane this summer because he was able to plug in headphones and play this on the plane and it really kept him occupied. I think the games available for this gaming system are great, there is a lot of variety and most are priced under 20.00 which is great. I like that they charge up easily with the charger and the charge seems to last a long time, I really appreciate not having to mess with batteries with this product. I do worry about him playing with long periods of time with the small screen, I don't want it to hurt his eyes, so we do limit time on this gaming system. My son truly enjoys playing his games and the fact he can plug in the headphones and play, it is nice having such a portable gaming system.
