Beat the Winter Blues with Nintendo


Tired of the snow and cold weather? Even us Southerners have been dealing with cool weather! Sometimes we need some entertainment to keep us occupied while we’re couped inside. When I lived in New Year, I looked forward to the blizzards because school would be closed and I got to play with video games! Nintendo has always been part of my childhood and now that I have kids of my own, they play too! I used to own the Gameboy, do you guys remember that? I had the kiwi Gameboy color. I loved, loved that handheld system! Technology has come such a long way.


  1. Have  a video game system – my family loves the Nintendo 2DS and Wii U. We get to be a little competitive! I love the portability of the Nintendo 2DS. Take it wherever you go! The Nintendo 2DS plays the same games as the Nintendo 3DS but doesn’t have the 3D capabilities.
  2. Games, games, Games – You know you love some Super Mario Bros! But if you prefer racing, role-playing, or fighting there is a game for you! They have some new video games that came out recently that my son has been playing. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon has been a favorite. My son loves collecting the Pokemon cards so he was excited to play the game. We’ve also been playing Yo -Kai Watch. The game is actually really fun! We also love The Legend of Zelda. I remember playing Zelda when I was a little girl. I loved it!
  3. Entertainment – Did you know you can watch Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube on Nintendo 2DS devices and Wii U? It’s true! So how perfect for those cold snowy days. When you get tired of playing just switch to watching some videos!

The next time there is a snowy situation be sure to have your Nintendo 2DS all recharged up! The perfect gaming system for kids who are on the go or just rather stay in! Nintendo 2DS also has web browsing capabilities and the Miiverse, where you can play against friends!

Do you have a favorite video game system or video game you love to play?

    I love the idea that you can watch Netflix and youtube on the Nintendo 2ds. We have the original Wii and I have been thinking about getting a handheld device for the kids. They need something for entertainment on long road trips and for errands that involve a lot of waiting.

    I love Nintendo! We used to play the GameBoy all the time. I loved the old Castlevania games on the GameBoy. I haven’t tried the new GameBoy yet, but I should. 🙂

    Wow, the Nintendo 2DS looks amazing and I’m dying to upgrade to the Wii U. We’re old school in our house and simply rock a Wii… but I have a feeling we will get a new system sometime soon. We use our smart TV to watch hulu and netflix now, but I think it’ll be nice to be able to watch with either of these devices in the future. 🙂
