I have to say that our family absolutely loves Mario and all the new games that are popping up with a Mario theme! A few weeks ago we got our hands on a new Nintendo DS Lite (which by the way are now only $99.99 each) and 5 new Mario themed games! We love our Battle of the Wii days but with our new Nintendo DS Lite we may start a Battle of DS day!!
The new Nintendo DS Lite don’t just play DS games but if you have Game Boy Advance games and offers up to 19 hours of battery time! You can connect to WiFi and play other players with DS download! With just a 3 inch touch screen, this Nintendo DS Lite packs a powerful punch with a true 3D view and dual screens!

I remember playing Mario Brothers when it came out on the first Nintendo when I was younger and my brother and I would play for hours! Now our kiddos can take turn at finding the princess and rescuing her from Donkey Kong, racing through castles and jumping over all kinds of moving objects!
After a few hours of play time with our new Nintendo DS Lite, over the past few weeks. I have to say my new favorite games is Mario vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! It is so much fun racing around through different mazes and puzzles racking up coins along the way! I love the conveyer belts and springs to jump up to higher levels! So much fun!
My kiddos on the other hand have become even a bigger fan of Mario Kart. They love it on the Wii but love it even more on the Nintendo DS Lite because now they can take it with them where ever they go! There have been several times that I have had to snag it from my kiddos underneath the covers trying to play while in bed!
