Go here, be there, do this, there is always something on the calendar! Life is busy; schedules happen! With this being the first big year of homework, we have been struggling to find that balance. Between extracurricular, homework and just simply being a child, it’s been tough. Turning car rides into screen time, the New Nintendo 2DS XL (which is pre-installed with Mario Kart 7) keeps Ava entertained with the desired screen time she wants.
One of my favourite things about the New Nintendo 2DS XL is that it’s portable. This portable gaming system means that Ava has something she doesn’t have to share with her sister and it truly is the perfect entry-level system for kids as young as 6 years old.
Did I mention that the New Nintendo 2DS XL comes with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed and you could play with characters like Mario, Luigi, and Pikachu.
Nintendo has several portable gaming system options—from the Nintendo 2DS to the New Nintendo 2DS XL and New Nintendo 3DS XL your family can find a system that fits your needs and budget (prices range from $109.99 to $239.99). Both the New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS come with an AC adapter; however, you must purchase it separately for the 3DS.
With all the different options and features, it’s a matter of figuring out which personal portable gaming system works best for your budget. With 3 different personal gaming systems, your child will get that high-quality game experience they want, at the low price you need!
Those long car rides to soccer practices and games can be tiring. With Ava’s personal New Nintendo 2DS XL, we can still let kids be kids. We can avoid screen time all we want but for some kids playing video games is part of being a kid!
