Must-Have Nintendo DS Accessories Like most pre-teens, my sons absolutely love video games. They carry their handhelds with them wherever they go (except to school, of course), and would happily spend all day playing Mario Kart, Pokemon, and Lego Star Wars if I let them. I think video games are a mostly harmless habit, as long as the boys observe the strict time limits I've imposed and as long as they only play titles that are rated "E" for everyone. And since they consistently meet my two rules, I don't mind buying them all the Nintendo DS accessories and games they want for their birthday and Christmas. Actually, I would probably buy some of these Nintendo DS accessories whether the boys asked for them or not. For example, I insisted that they apply screen protectors the second that they took the device out of the box. These handheld systems aren't cheap, and the last thing I want to do is have to replace them because the screens are too scratched up to see anything. Next up on the list of must-have Nintendo DS accessories is a sturdy carrying case. As I said, my kids take their games practically everywhere, including outside or to friends' houses. This exposes their devices to lots of potential damage from drops, bumps, and other mishaps. Accidents happen even to the most responsible among us, so a solid carrying case is a necessity in my opinion. These Nintendo DS accessories probably extend product life by a significant number of months -- or even years! Another accessory that my sons wouldn't survive without is a car charger. Personally, I wouldn't be able to play video games in a moving vehicle without succumbing to motion sickness, but my children don't seem to mind it at all. With a car charger, they never have to worry about running out of battery power on a long road trip, and frankly, that helps keep all of us sane. And no list of Nintendo DS accessories would be complete without earphones. Let's face it, some of the background music or sound effects for kids games can be quite annoying after repeated exposure. I understand that it's no fun to play with the volume turned down or off all the way, so headphones provide a nice compromise. Parents don't get migraines from the incessant noise and kids can enjoy a more complete gaming experience no matter who else is in the room. It's a win-win situation for sure. If you're trying to figure out which Nintendo DS accessories you should buy, the ones I've listed here represent as good a start as any. Grab hold of these and set your device up for long-lasting, high-quality performance that will provide you with countless hours of entertainment!
