DS (11) has an Xbox - he likes to come home and do a bit of racing before homework. I think he sees it as a bit of a wind down from school. But doesn't play on it every day and when he does it's usually only for 1/2 an hour or so.
DD (8) has a DS. She's quite faddish and will play with it a lot one week and then not touch it for a month. She likes doing the brain training (particularly the Suduko) but best game is the dogs one!
I also have a DS (40)
- best present OH every bought me (almost)! I like doing Suduko or puzzles (I know, very sad).
We also have a Wii (and Wii Fit) which the kids use occasionally, usually with friends or family (great at Xmas, watching Granny trying to holahoop after a couple of Baileys
) However, I probably use the Wii the most for exercise. Currently on my 2nd 30 day programme with the Wii trainer - highly recommend it, my thighs are really feeling the burn!
OH fancies himself as a bit of a techno buff (we have to watch the Gadget Show every week) hence all the gear. Could we live without it? Of course but I would miss my DS, Nintendo that is
