We bought Norah a Nintendo DS and the New Super Mario Brothers game. It's her first game console of any kind. After using it on and off for a day or two, she told me, "This game has changed my life. Before, when I was bored, I had nothing to do. But, now, I just play my game and I am never bored!" Exactly, Norah!
We're going on a very long road trip this month, so that's why we got it when we did (instead of waiting for her birthday next month). This will come in handy during the full days of driving in the car. She has been playing it quite a bit already... and so have I, to tell the truth. I had forgotten how fun these games can be.
