Can play both regular DS and 3DS games
Easy to hold
Bulky (Doesn’t fit easily into pockets, etc)
The 2DS is essentially a 3DS without the 3D. It is an odd wedge shape but it makes it easy to hold. The shoulder bumpers are easy to press. It can play both regular and 3DS games. Overall, it is a great DS for little ones. It’s durable because there is no hinge component and it’s small enough to fit into little hands. We’ve had no issues with battery-life. It isn’t the prettiest handheld but it does away with the unnecessary 3D (which I personally don’t like, anyway.) It functions just like a regular DS and 3DS as far as I’ve been able to tell.
Would I recommend it? Yes, for children.
