  • My son is 4 and a half -- I got him the handheld system from Leapfrog -- Leapster. This young I felt like sticking to something educational?

  • My son is 8 and has been asking for one for xmas too. His friend has one and they seem to enjoy playing with it. I'm not sure if he's getting it or not. I think that if I were you, I'd check and see what type of games were available, in his age range, before I bought it for him. I think it might be a little bit too old for him yet. Just my opinion though.

  • my son just turned 6 in Oct. We got him a DS this year for Christmas.. i hope he likes it he has been wanting one... he has had a v smile for 2 years and still plays with it but the games are almost too young for him now... you can still get educational games for a DS also..
