Although it can be enjoyed by children playing alone it's also great for friends to play with together

Six months later my daughter doesn't play with it that often

It's great that these have the wireless connection so that you can play against other NintendoDS owners without any cable connection getting in the way. Also, on some game titles, only one player needs to have the actual game, while others who are...

Not exactly a 'Bad point' but the DS game cards are rather small and quite easy to misplace (you know what kids are like)

Realistic looking dogs, can interact with other peoples dogs.

A range of interesting and highlky playable games. Great design of console with a bunch of great features e.g. WiFi and pictochat. All works brilliantly.

No real bad points, other than the perception that this is not as good as a PSP. In reality it is much much better!!
