yes if it is a game made for DS then it is compatible with the DS lite and DS xl and IS supposed to work for DSi, BUT sometimes you will get an error message for no reason.

ALSO if it is a 3DS game it will only work for the 3DS handheld console.

I can only speculate that this bundle includes the small stylus that slides into the back of the console and one full sized pen stylus just like the regular DSi XL comes with. You can however buy a number of different stylus' in different colors and sizes for relatively good pricing.

For a regular D I personally would recommend age 5 and up. Keep in mind hand size of small children. The XL systems are heavier and larger so possibly age 12 and older.

I was wondering the same thing. I have a 6 and a 4 year old boy. I Know that if I get my 6 year old one, my 4 year old will want one also. However, I started to think about how my youngest has cared for his other handheld games like his v tech and leapster. He has dropped them, slammed them because he couldn't get the game in the right way, etc... I have decided to get my youngest a leapster pad instead. I feel it's more age appropriate and slightly cheaper! Hope that helps!

I bought a DSi XL for my oldest son on his 6th birthday last year. His brother is a year 2 years younger than him. A few weeks ago my youngest jammed the game cartridge in the system backwards and warranty does not cover this damage. All I could get was a discount because the system is still under a year old. It is expensive. Furthermore, my 3 yr old is a couple months away from 4, and every time he gets his hands on the Wii or my DS Lite he gets frustrated because he does not understand how to use it. He throws them. I would not purchase one for a child under 5.

i say go for it! my 3 year old has a ds lite and is able to work it on her on..the screen is clear! my stepdaughter is 5 in a half and has a dsi but it has too many options for a 3 year old.i guess it also depends on the kids bc my step daughter plays alot with the camera on her dsi so its perfect for her but my 3 year old is interested in actually playing the games not so much taking pictures and stuff like that. but these really are great to have on the road.

Because the DSi has the capability to access the internet, that is the only way any adult content would be accessible. You can manage the settings to restrict internet access and other features so that it is very kid-friendly.
