I do to but yet still a little confused if I should or not.. I was thinking if I get them each one not till Christmas then my daughter will for 7 and my son will be 6... and maybe getting the older ones not the newest ones

My dd got hers when she was about to turn 5.  She started with a DS Lite and it was fine for what she was doing with it.  She has a Dsi now that she received as a gift, but the Ds Lite is still going strong 2 1/2 years later.  Just be aware that the newer 3DS games don't work on the older players.

What makes you debate if it's a good idea or not?

Personally I don't like them. You have to buy the games, carry around cartridges and the stylus. Too many things to get lost.

I much prefer tablets. You can buy oodles of apps that are just loaded on and stay there. Plus there are lots if educational activities.
