Holiday Travel- Bored No More with Nintendo 2DS

Nintendo 2DS

Planning a upcoming family vacation or plan to visit family this holiday season? Then you need to grab the latest hand held gaming system from Nintendo to add to your boredom bag for the kiddos!

The Nintendo 2DS will play all 2000 Nintendo 3DS games and is backwards compatible with Nintendo DS titles. This is not the typical DS model since there are no hinges and looks similar to a tablet. With 2 screens, circle pad for movement and motion control by a move of the hand held system. This system has all the sale traditional gaming buttons for easy transition from one Nintendo system to another.

It has great features like the 2 cameras with which you can grab photos or record video. The pictures from this 2DS is similar quality to any other hand held gaming system and also allows you to add images and decorations to your images! You can also record your voice on the new 2DS as well, which my youngest thought was super cool!

As a mom of 3 girls, I tend to be over protective when it comes to internet access. Just like the 3DS, this new 2DS has the same wi-fi option to allow your system to provide more games, apps and features! But with access to the internet, this opens your child up to harmful or inappropriate content. This system allows you to set limited access or no access at all to the internet with the parental control settings. You must then have a 4 digit code to access any content blocked based on your settings.

All though this system is geared toward the younger age group, this system is great for any age!


Looking to share your data with other friends and players? StreetPass is a great feature on the new 2DS that allows you wirelessly to exchange game data with other Nintendo 3DS family consoles as you pass other players on the street, without having to lift a finger. Simply move the Sleep Switch to the right while the power is on and carry your system with you wherever you go! This is great for those friends that already have 3DS and want to share their game data!


Nintendo 2DS is available in two great color combinations, BLACK + BLUE and WHITE + RED – choose the one that suits you best! Everything you need comes in the box, including a 4 GB SDHC Memory Card and Nintendo 3DS AC adapter that can be used with Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.

At just a $129.99, the Nintendo 2DS is designed specifically for anyone looking for an entry point into the exciting world of Nintendo hand-held video games.
