As all of you that may have been following me for a while, about a month ago I took my family to Niagara Falls, Canada. We had some great times visiting the Skylon Tower, Bird Kingdom, Ripley’s Believe it Or Not,Niagara Helicopters, and of course Niagara Falls as well.
Going on such a long trip you can bet that we needed to make sure that we had tons to do and Nintendo helped us along the way. They sent us the backpack filled with all of the items that you see here and let me tell you they were amazing! The kids were so thrilled to have all of these items and they were very excited to try out the new games that they sent and the new Nintendo 3DS too.
It was going to take us about 5.5 hours each way to get to Niagara Falls and back, and while we knew we could bring a movie, books, coloring and activity books and a bit more to pass the time, but with this and the Nintendo items we were good to go.
Keeping the kids engaged was important for me as I knew that if the kids were actively engaged, the time would pass quickly and I came to find that it worked.
The kids loved the Nintendo and its’ games. The games were so interactive and they especially loved playing the Mario Smash Brothers game as this was one that they had been wanting to play for some time.
There are so many great games to choose from Nintendo and beyond that can be used as a part of the Nintendo 3DS pack and there are so many great games that are action packed, but also ones that are educational as well. This mix allows a parent to know that they can actually learn while on the 3DS and have fun while passing the time too.
The battery on the 3DS lasted much longer than I thought it would which was great, but also, with the charger that we had, I was able to charge it along the way too in the car which was perfect.
While my daughters did not play the 3DS the entire time, the time they did spent playing it was enjoyable. The challenge of course with two kids is sharing, as both want the newest and best. We worked through those issues though and even now, when we are back to our everyday lives, they still want to play with the system which shows me that it is definitely technology worth keeping for the long haul!
If you are going on a long trip and are looking for technology that is long lasting and offers entertainment, engagement, action, mystery and so much more, I encourage you to check out what Nintendo can offer. Especially now before you may take that first family vacation of the summer, don’t wait, be ready for when you do!
