    Re: whats the difference between nintendo ds, and ds lite ??

    The ds came out first and then a year or so later they came out with the lite version. Lite is suppose to be lighter in weight and the light is brighter. It may cost more now too since it is new. Either one will be fine for your kid. My two boys, 10 and 6 have the first ds that came out and it works great. I believe you can still get those. Hope that helps you.

    Purchase the DS Lite. It plays both Game Boy Advance and DS games. My grandson has one, and it is definitely a brighter screen. A lot easier on the eyes. It is not as heavy as the regular DS. The DS has a lot of different games. My grandson carrys his whenever he can. It fits easily in his jeans. Funny, the kids nowadays have cell phones, iPods, and Game systems like the Ds in their pockets. It used to be baseball cards, and rocks, and marbles, and toy cars years ago.

    The cost should be about the same. Unless it comes down in price, it is presently $129.

    By the way, the first ds plays Game Boy Advance games as well. It is a bit bigger then the Lite. Depending on how much you can afford, you should always go with the new version. (Which would be the Lite.)

    thank you, both of you I got her what she wanted, a game boy advance and she got the color two, then she says mom, before you get the gameboy advance I decided I want the DS so now I have to trade the new one I got, and get her the ds lite now.

    Karla - sounds like our kids are thinking alike. I'm just happy to know that the DS lite will play the gameboy advance games.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    DS Lite tastes great but has half the calories of Nintendo DS.






    I'm sorry. I just couldn't help myself.

    Nintendogs is a GREAT game! My daughter just loves it! There are three different versions, but they are all the same except for different breeds of dogs.

    Yup, DS games will indeed work on DS Lite. If Rachal is interested in other animal games, she might enjoy Zoo Tycoon or Animal Crossing. Bailey has both those and enjoys them a lot. Also, check out Brain Age. It's an educational game for older children and adults. She might like that too!
