Nintendo DS Lite
The DS Lite has a few things going for it. It's primarily a handheld video game system with a vast library of kid-friendly games, including Pokémon, Nintendogs, and New Super Mario Bros. It also features a built-in wireless chatting function that takes advantage of the DS's touchscreen - kids can actually send each other drawings and notes in their own handwriting. The DS is a social experience that's perfect for bus rides, lunchtime, and recess on rainy days.
