    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.

    Kids love the DS. I thought it would be sturdy since it was created without hinges that older models have. But if dropped the battery cover pops partway off. Also had volume lever break and another DS just quit working. Definitely recommend getting extended warranty. Additionally there are still no protective cases available that the DS can remain in and be played

    Fun system, tough on adult hands

    Nice little affordable handheld system, great for traveling obviously. My only issue is the size of the device, which causes some pretty severe hand cramps after an hour or so. I have medium-large sized hands for an adult male, and let's be honest. This was made for kids. I don't know how the 3DS XL would compare, since I've never held one. But hey, the games are good and the battery lasts substantially longer than I can play.

    Purchased this for my son for Christmas. The item was out of stock so the sales associate was very helpful with ordering it for in-store pickup. Item arrived, received a notification it was in and pickup was super easy! I can't review the product yet, but the process of ordering and pickup was great.

    Excellent Value. Poor ergonomics.

    Great price point and not short on features. I hate 3D screens and find this pretty easy on the eyes. Prolonged used hurts my hands. I prefer the smaller clamshell DS form factor for ergonomics. Screen scratches easy. Great for teens or adults but bad for small children.

    Broke my 3ds so picked this up for a temporary fix. But I still use it and don't really miss the old 3d which I always turned off anyway. Only giving a 3 because it's a bit awkward to hold and hit the triggers unless you are sitting in the right position.

    The Grandbaby first system. It's easy for him to use and actually navigate at such s young age however we were unable to download the game and had to make a trip to invest another $30 for the game that was suppose be free with the system.

    First off the size is very comfortable. The problem I ran into was I had a new 3ds XL and was not able to transfer my eshop purchases to this system. I could do it on a different new 3ds though

    If you want to play 3ds games without the 3D then this is the system for you. The appearance may not be great, but it gets the job done. Also it comes with a charger unlinke the new nintendo 3ds.

    This is a great handheld for kids as the size is small and the form factor is not portable enough like the small 3ds. Anyways, people can literally experience better graphics on a cell phone.

    I mainly bought this item to play games like Mario since they aren't widely available on other platforms. It's not the best out there but if you like Mario type games it is the best one for you!

    My daughter likes that it plays her sister's 3ds games. The screen is ok, but doesn't like that it doesn't fold like other ds systems. Overall ok, but should had bought 3DS.

    It was a good device while it lasted. within the first month, a 2 foot drop caused a wire to get lose on the inside of the device preventing it from turning on.

    This handset worked fine but the build quality felt really cheap to me, too bad the 3DS is so much more expensive, not worth it to me just to play Pokemon.

    Wish the store was locked down and all it did was play games like the older DS. Daughter keeps seeing ads for games and such which is very annoying.

    If you are looking for a great gift for a younger niece or nephew you can't beat the price. Perfect starter set for younger kids.

    I thought it would link to the wii u and that my kids regular ds would be able to play multi player with me on the 3ds games but it doesn't.

    It's kinda bulky for a DS system and the screen is smaller than the Nintendo DSi XL and it's hard to find cases for it

    I love nintendos but the screen was just way to small for me, I liked the extra large way better, better screen and easier to use

    Have replaced 2DS multiple times due to buttons/back cover breaking. System is for kids but does not withstand every day use by them.
