Nintendo DS vs Game Boy Advance SP

Help?

I need some advice please.
K & I have finally gotten G's blessing on a handheld game device for Kyle. Which one do you recommend we get??

Kyle is turning 8 on Thursday. He's played with at least the Game Boy in some form at his friends' house.

Pros & Cons would be appreciated.

Thanks!!!

The DS plays all the old games, as well as the new. The screen is lit better and the styli are cheap to replace if lost. It has a built-in rechargeable battery and you can play while plugged in. Also the newest version is much lighter--the first DS was really top heavy. As an investment the DS is the better buy.

However.


If Kyle is the kind that loses and breaks, buy a used system (the GBA SP would be good) as "Training Wheels" to teach him how to care for the system until he demonstrates he understands. Just a thought.
