How many of you have a 5 year old that owns a Nintendo DS?

I'm just curious because it seems like every 5 year old I see has one. My parents just got my 5 year old one as a late birthday present. I'm not sure how I feel about it.

  • We're going to get our 3 year old an Ipod touch. I don't see any problem with game systems. It's 2011. Kids like games. As long as it's not consuming their lives, it shouldn't be a big deal.
