Fun Nintendo 3DS and 2DS Games For Those Gamer Girls! Tomodachi Life and Animal Crossing™: New Leaf #PlayNintendoCG

Now that our kids have grown older they have taken on a similar interest to their father, video gaming! This is good becunase it shows they are able to read and understand more of what is going in life; as they have taken up a fascination of life simulation video gaming and have their own gaming systems and worlds to control, like toys. In fact their systems are the same line that their father had at their age, the Nintendo.

Nintendo’s are far advanced from the 1980’s, but none the less Nintendo is still delivering great titles for kids. From our Nintendo 2D and 3DS to our Nintendo Wii U now, we find ourselves to be up on the latest in games. The kids have asked for titles for the Holidays and Christmas, so it’s great because video gaming is a way to learn, not just waste time.

Whats also a great feature these days is the ease to connect to the internet to access online content. Nintendo also does a great job on keeping it very sensible and safe for kids, but being online is also cool to have access to Nintendo eShop allowing them buy classic and newer titles downloadable to their portable systems, so many great uses for this.

We were lucky to get Tomodachi Life and Animal Crossing: New Leaf to put onto our gamer girl’s Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS (also works for 3DS XL) using Nintendo eShop download codes. It was simple and after download the game was presented in a wrapped package to be opened! Great gift idea, load your kids system with digital presents to be opened on Christmas day!

I set them up each with their own game, and they both are having fun exploring, finding new quests, and just being free. Brooklin has always been fascinated with Kaila’s Tomodachi Life so we gave Brooklin her very own copy. She does need help, but has fun being in control of this little world she is creating. She has little character toys that she loves to play with, and in Tomodachi Life she gets to play make believe, but also is learning some real world lessons and activities. Brooklin is having a blast with playing and creating friends, family members and celebrities with the Mii characters all with their own personalities.

We hooked Kaila up with Animal Crossing: New Leaf for a couple of reasons. First and foremost is because it is a game she has been wanting, so we also scored parent points there and got her to do some extra chores! But secondly, she is also into this learning, exploring, and the growing up phase of life. She is responsible and even participates in helping out at her school to be responsible.

I think she likes to know she is creating and doing something other than just running around always and she does like to sit and just read or play a fun video game to pass the time. And with Animal Crossing: New Leaf she can do just that. Pass the time, create a world, read, and learn some new concepts and more. She is happy to be Mayor of her town and to take charge and to watch her personalized world grow as she designs her character’s life and the life of the town around them all!

Both girls are having so much fun with their games. Brooklin says she loves how cute the little Mii guys are and they are like her toys but real! Kaila has been doing all kinds of things in her world of Animal Crossing and is always talking about something new she has done. They can both pick up there games and play where they left off, even if its for 10-20 mins, they have fun.

I am happy we were able to find them both games that will help them be open to new ideas and trying new things to get ahead. My husband always says how video games have benefits, and to be honest they can be very useful to children as they grow older. Kids learn finger and eye coordination, problem solving, and having fun quietly!

Check them out for the Nintendo 3DS, 2DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.

    I didn’t realize they had more fun options for girls. My daughter isn’t a gamer, at least not yet but her BFF is hard core!!

    This is really great! I think people tend to forget that girls love to play video games too! They’re not just for the boys.

    I’ve been a fan of the Animal Crossing series since the first game came out. They’re so much fun. You can loose yourself for hours.

    We picked up Tomodachi LIfe over the summer and my daughter still plays it every day. She even got married in the game – made me super uncomfortable!

    Aww, these games look so fun! They sort of remind me when i used to have a Nano Baby on a keychain, only way better!

    We love our 3DS and 2DS. I like that we can use all of our games on the 2DS. These are really fun games to play!
