I a looking for a idea for a birthday gift for my little girl who is turning 5

She loves watching her Sister play her Nintendo DS, and I want to get her something in the way of a hand held game. I want something that can help get her ready for kindergarten. I dont mind spending a little money, but I want something that will last her, and will keep her attention. Thank you in advance:)

  • leapster is good - my son loved it

    and if you think she is responsible enough, you could get her a ds, and get learning games for it

  • My daughter loves Cool School. She has fun and while teaching her school stuff it also teaches her how to use the computer.

  • Leapster! She'll play with it for HOURS. Just get a few of the games my daugher loves the Ratattouile and the princesses. Also backyardigans and Dora! They have so many different games and the kids relate to the characters they "know" from tv or movies.

  • I agree with a Leapster. Both my 4 and 6 year old love theirs. It's very durable, they're boys and drop it often, you can find many games for it. It will grow with her for the next couple of years, too.
