The Nintendo ds lite beats all other Christmas presents in my daughter's eyes. It is small and easy to carry around, yet it does so much. I bought her the coral pink version and she was elated with that. The picture and sound are better than I could have imagined. First, the picture is so bright it lights up our car at night. No need to turn on any lights in the car for her to be able to play her games. Second, the cound is so loud that I can't listen to the radio while the game is on.
I give this gaming system a 5 all the way around except for the fact that the system only stays charged for 3 hours at a time. Normally that is fine for your everyday needs, but I recently took the kids to Florida which is a 17 hour drive from my house.
There are plenty of games you can buy for this gaming system which even takes games made for Game Boys. That is great if you already have a lot of Game Boy games and just want to upgrade your gaming system.
Two thumbs up!
