    Ok get Kai a Gameboy SP

    Reasonings:- Cheaper, Easier Controls, Still an abundance of games and it gets them used to hand held computing.

    My little one is 5 he has a Vsnilw and every now and then he plays the PS2. For christmas last year we got him an older Game Boy Advance so this year he's upgrading to a GBA SP.

    He played with his ousins DS a little while ago and didn't use the pen. Infact many of the games do not requiire the pen, And GBA games do play on there too, so if you get the GBA SP. and then the DS next year he will stil,l be able to play all his games

    well thats what i am doing anyway :D

    Yeah OH and I have DS's we love them, and typical nintendo do aim games at kiddies a lot more than Sony and the others do. ore cutsy less violent. But the DSdoes have the whole stylus thing. Which I couls see a small kid losing stright away! Ihad my 4 year old niece have a go on my nintendogs, and she struggled with using a stylus. Plus if they try to use something other than the stylus they could scratch the screen.

    How about the new nintendo Wii coming out for Xmas? Were getting one and then its fun for all the family! (you will want to get on a waiting list though to aviod disapointment)
