and he's five. Is there something wrong with this picture?
My little girl has had one for months and she is four.
Only if you don't have one too.
Hand Eye Cordnation ftw? Doesnt matter at what age someone plays games, its just making them understand to know when to stop.
Nothing wrong with 5 year olds with a DS. A 5 year old with a PS3 is wrong though.
I don't know how much he'll enjoy it though. He's getting the new Pokemon and I got Blue Version when I was 8 or 9 and was having trouble with it.
pokemon might be a bit much for a 5 year old, but there's plenty on there that a 5 year old can love at the same time. i mean, if i could beat zelda 1 when i was 8, and my brother did the same thing at 7... games nowadays are way easier than that, so i'm sure he can have a good time. heck, my son is only 2 and a half and he's potty trained, sings his abc's, counts to 10, and has no problem playing mario party on my 9 year old's ds.
Jealous of a 5 year old?
yeah it is not weird at all for a 5 y/o to have a DS I have seen several kids with them.
No, not at all, I have my own DS. My niece and nephew demolish at Wii bowling. I guess I'm just old fashioned :-/
My gf's nephew has had one since he was 3. Crazy i know.
it's not too crazy. like i said, my 2 year old is probably better with it than my 9 year old is.
Nope, not at all.
2 of my nephews (both are 6 and 9) have one each.
How about we put it this way; is $130 plus $20-$35 dollars per game a hefty price for a 5 year old?
What happened to getting the latest Power Ranger/Transformer/Other random toy(s) for Christmas?
he'll probably get a few of those too, but kids have been getting video games for christmas since the 70s. i don't see what the big deal is.
Good point. I suppose I'm making a big deal out of nothing.
Depends. If it's the kid's mom, dad, or older sister/brother, or close auntie/uncle/grandmother/grandfather, it's not a big deal. But if it's not a close family member, that would be wrong. It would suck if the the mom and dad got him a nice $75 toy, and then some auntie's executive boyfriend get's him a DS with games.
My Brother was playing GTA: Vice City when he was 7 :S
Wow that would just be kind of creepy.
Almost has creepy as making a thread to tell the internet you have a 5 year old nephew to hundreds of strangers. Creepy is a relative word, ja?
