    Not in my opinion, I think DS started playing at age 5. That's when he was first able to master the buttons.

    I believe so.
    My DS will be 6 by Christmas and he won't be getting one for a long time. He doesn't even know they exist!!

    Not too young IMO.

    My 5 year old was playing Lego Star Wars this afternoon and only took him a short time to get used to the controls.

    We got one last year and DS who was 8 at the time has barely played it. I am going to be getting him a Playstation because I honestly believe Playstation have more options for games to purchase for young children.

    It really depends on the type of games you intend to buy.

    Some games are excellent for hand eye coordination and problem solving.

    I reckon its okay depending on games. Eg athletics games, car racing, soccer would be fine or g rated games.

    We have an old Xbox and I bought a couple of Lego Batman games for the boys who are 4 and 6 (just, both had birthdays in the last month). They've played them for a couple of months now.
