Keeps the young ones busy :-),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Game Boy Advance SP: Silver (Video Game)
I bought this for my 8 year old son for Xmas. Along with 4 or 5 games. A vast improvement over previous generations of Gameboy, largely because it is backlit and has a more hand friendly form factor.
I'm pleased (unhappy?) to say that my son hardly ever puts it down, sneaking it to bed when we are not looking too.
The one down side is the games are typically £30 - hardly any cheaper than the PS2. Perhaps Nintendo have realised that they have a winner on their hands and subsequently are now milking the after sales market.
One final good point - you can buy games for this in the US and in the process save yourself 30-50%.
