Great alternative to the normal designs and interesting design for Pokemon fans or even just Pikachu fans. It’s nice to have the option of a cheaper 2ds for those who don’t want the 3D effect

My 7yrs old son has saved his pocket money for the past year to buy this games console - He is happy-ish with it but for a child who has Dsylexia some of the games such a Pokemon are difficult to play as there is so much reading with the game. I have purchased easier games for him as he is a little bit disappointed with the game play. Saying that the controls are easy to use, my son loves the camera loves the design and I think my son will grow into the games machine. It would be nice to have some dsylexic friendly games for the console
