      I was in the market for a handheld gaming system for my 6 year old daughter. We had a Leap Pad 2 before, and we were not impressed by the longevity. After much research, we decided to buy her a Nintendo 2DS, since it was sturdier for smaller children, and we didn't want her to hurt her eyes with a 3DS. I decided to buy this product off of Best Buy since the website had the one we wanted (the Blue one with the Mario Kart game code) for the best deal. Both Amazon and Walmart had this gaming system, but were more expensive. I bought it at BestBuy.com, and opened it upon arrival. We will be giving this to our daughter for Christmas, and I wanted to make sure that I was happy with the quality and design. I was pleased with both. It is more complicated to use than the Leap Pad, but it is also much more advanced and high quality. I'm sure that she will love playing on it once she opens it on Christmas morning. I downloaded the Mario Kart game on it. It took me about 2 hours to set everything up and download the game, so I was glad that it did that ahead of time so she can play on it as soon as she opens it. I will update my review once we've had it for a longer period of time, but I am pretty confident that it will work well for our needs!

      Space between screens and DS transfer

      I have a 3DS xL that is gold and black limited. As nice as that might sound, I Wanted something portable without waiting for the "new" 3ds. Lo and behold--i loved the 2DS. Except for 2 things. Design and manufacturing flaws AND 3DS system transfer. Its amazingly comfortable even for hands as big as mine, even more portable because its not all flippy as its bigger brothers(still suggest a screen protector and a nifty case) and has all u need to enjoy the library of games already available sans stereo spekers and 3D gaming for a VERY reasonable price. The design flaw i want to address isnt a major concern for most people except those afraid of getting dust under their screens...Which is what i had. The screen has a few mm of space from the actual clear sheet of plastic that protects it. and that bothers me because it gives dust extra space to easily enter. Why manufacturer flaw u ask? Because the unit i received had some dust inside from the factory and i couldnt easily get rid of it. Second concern of mine is NOT with the 2ds but with Nintendo. They need to unify all accounts to have access to their content. i did not want to transfer my entire library from my 3DS xL to my 2DS as it was my intention to sinply use my cartidges on the 2DS. What did i find? Some games I tried had saves not in the cart but in the SD card of my unit. Bad news? Yes because SD card data is specific to NNID and DS. so sadly my plan did not work entirely and the only solution is to have transferred ALL my 30gb of games plus their saves onto my 2DS and scrap my Limited Edition Zelda 3DS XL. So what i say to this? If it is a gift to a child who has no knowledge of anything i just mentioned and it is solely for a local experience with no worries of multiple systems or downloads, then YES BUY IT its a great systen with great games. But if you are in a situation like mine, hold off until we finally get the "new" 3ds. Money is worth spending on those consoles. Same price as a full 3DS (not 2DS) with a plethora of techy upgrades.

      Make sure you buy the warranty.

      We have had a 2DS for quite some time now. We first got it for my oldest as a gift when our baby was born in the summer of 2014. My daughter LOVED it, and it worked great until the charging port went out in September of 2015. Thankfully, we had purchased the warranty and were able to get it replaced at that time. We had a lengthy discussion with my daughter about making sure that her toy was well cared for, and she has taken great care to make sure that it is safely in it's case when she isn't playing it since that time. Fast forward to February of 2016, and the charging port just went out AGAIN on the 2DS that we have only had for 5 months. Good news is that we bought the warranty again, bad news is that these things just aren't made like they used to be. I have an old GameBoy Advance from when I was a kid that still works wonderfully, but these 2DS systems are just not as well constructed apparently. I would recommend this product, as the gameplay is fantastic and my 7 year old absolutely loves it, but I would NOT purchase it without warranty coverage, as it appears as though Nintendo is no longer concerned with the longevity of their product.

      What a DEAL!!!

      I bought 2 units, one blue and one red, for my sons (ages 4 & 7) as Christmas gifts, and what GREAT gifts they were. I got these online at BestBuy.com a few days BEFORE Thanksgiving for $99.99, which was an excellent price for the MarioKart 7 bundle. I kept an eye on the ads from Best Buy and all of the competition, and NOBODY beat this price from Black Friday through the pre-Christmas sales. A note to Parents: If you are getting this as a gift for Christmas, Birthdays, etc. in situations where the recipient may want to play with it immediately, open it up beforehand and do the initial set-up, updates, and free-download of the game so it's ready to go when they're ready to play. I highly recommend setting the Parental Controls, as these things have an Internet browser built-in. It took me a total of about 2 hours to get them up and running (about 20 minutes to go through and set-up the user name, parental controls, and all the other initial set-ups, about another 20 minutes or so to do a system update, and around an hour or so to download the game, which is saved in "block" form on the included SDHC card. The fact that I was setting up 2 units at the same time may have increased the download time somewhat --- who knows. Had I known that it would take that amount of time, I would have taken care of all of that beforehand. All that being said... these things are GREAT!!! There are a lot of bells and whistles that your kids will figure out before you will. My 4-year old, after only a day and a half, already figured out how to use the front and rear-facing cameras. I might just treat myself to one for my birthday in a few months. Some kids just never grow up. Thanks Best Buy for making this Christmas extra Merry.

      My Son Loves It!

      This was a Christmas present from Santa for my 8-year-old son. He wanted a 3DS, but that wasn't in Santa's budget. When he realized that the 2DS could play the 3DS games (just not in 3D), he was all for it. Both he and his 6-year-old brother love this hand-held game. The graphics and sound are great, the battery life is very good, and it has a built in camera. You can access the internet through the 2DS if you have a WiFi connection at your home--which we don't. All in all, this is a great gaming system since it plays both DS and 3DS games. My only issue with this game was that it came with a free MarioKart7 game which my son wanted anyway. I thought this bundle was a great deal in order to get both in one package. We were under the impression that the game cartridge was included in the box, but it wasn't. It had to be downloaded. As I already stated, we don't have WiFi at our house, and my son had to wait several days to visit the home of a relative with WiFi in order to actually acquire MaroKart7. It was pretty disappointing for an 8-year-old on Christmas morning to not be able to play his new game. Now, over a month later, all is well. The 2DS is performing just fine, and everyone is happy. I would recommend this for your little video gamer.

      Perfect Nintendo handheld for anti-3d folk

      For those of you that can't stand 3d, not necessarily in a way that you think it is stupid and impractical, because it gives you headaches. Or you just don't wanna spend that extra $100 bucks, the 2ds is perfect. You can play all the wonderful 3ds games that you can on the 3ds and access pretty much all the same features, minus the 3d part, which it tells you this a lot by the way. You can even use amiibos, however you need to purchase a separate product for this, but even with that added $20 it is still a good deal cheaper. I would recommend getting a travel case if you want to take it around since it does not cold like the 3ds I would recommend top and bottom screen protectors as well. Though that is usually a given with any handheld device. It also doesn't hurt to get a bit of extra padding around the console itself because I was told, I have not experienced it, that they don't do so hot on a drop test. I purchased a silicon one for added grip and protection. This may sound like a lot, but my total was still bellow what a New 3ds XL costs. I hope this helps with your purchasing decision!

      i've been doing research on the nintendo ds for the last 2 most for my 5 year old daughter. She has had the original leaped since she was 2 . She's completely taken over my tablet with wanting to play games so this was the next best thing. My daughter loves Disney and everything that come's with it so i was elated to know that nintendo had princess games on top of My little pony, Barbie and LAlaloopsy . Just to name a few i'm going to purchase her. This gaming console is perfect for her little hands . It reminds me of the "game boy". Now to my parents, with small children like myself, I purchased a 3 years protection plan just in case any damages or malfunctions with this system. I would also suggest you open it first and set it up because that took about a half hour and if your little one is just as anxious as mine with new toys they aren't going to want to wait for you to do that lol. Other than that the system is very user friendly and i can't wait to see herself come Christmas morning.
