Okay, so I haven't played video games since I was a kid and we had the Nintendo 64 with Super Mario Brothers, Tetris, Contra, etc. Oh, and Atari with Centipede, Donkey Kong...well you get the picture. I'm old, lol. My daughters are 7 and 9 years old, and I'd like to get them a gaming system for Christmas. What would you recommend that would have appropriate games and fun for girls this age? I'm completely clueless. By the way, cost is not a factor, so just tell me what you think is best and why.
Thanks so much!
The top 2 choice for young kids are the Wii and a DS. The Wii is a blast. We got one for the whole family for Christmas last year and even my youngest (then 3 1/2) figured out the bowling and had a ton of fun with it. They also have 2 DSs (one DS Lite that my oldest got at 8 and a DSi that my son got last month when he turned 9 and my dad is sending another DSi for my middle dd who turns 8 today). All 4 of the kids love to play the DS and there are a ton of games for all ages and abilities. Even my 4yo has games for it (up until last month they all shared the one DS). She loves to play her Dora game.
Also a plus for the DS...the games are cheaper and you can get the older games from last "season" and the kids really don't care and they are like $10. Plus for the Wii is it gets kids up and moving while they play.
