2.0 out of 5 stars Does not stay on, October 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: dreamGEAR Comfort Grip for your Old Nintendo 3DS XL (Video Game)
I pre-ordered this for my son who received the 3DS XL for his fifth birthday. I was concerned about him dropping such an expensive piece of equipment and was anxious to receive this since it was the only protection I could find for the unit. Him and my daughter have had the DSi, DSi XL and 3DS and have used the Nerf protection case with it, which I love. This DreamGEAR case however is nothing like it. It looks cool and is nice and soft but the silicone is two pieces and will not stay on the 3DS XL, the top piece keeps slipping off which wouldn't be very good if this happened when being dropped. Thankfully we haven't tested that out yet but it still worries me!
I am sorry to say that I would not recommend this to other 3DS XL users and I will be looking for something else to protect the unit better and more reliably.

Um, you do know that a 5 year old should NOT be playing a 3DS, right? The 3D will damage his vision! It says so, right on the cover of almost every game. The 3DS should not be played by anyone under 7. Get your son something more age appropriate until he is old enough to use a 3DS this without damaging his eyes. He will thank you for it later when he doesn't need glasses. Cheers! (^_^)

I'm sorry, I thought this was a review for an accessory. Not a review on how I raise my children. Your comment is off point.

Right on, Crystal! On a substantive note, I will add that this item is designed more as a grip for people with larger hands rather than a case to protect the system. Hopefully the Nerf armor for 3DS XL will be out soon!

The warning is actually sort of like the warning on coffee cups stating that the coffee is hot. There is actually no proof that this causes any vision problems whatsoever, just a way to help prevent false legal claims. I did a little research and talked to my children's doctor. Nothing wrong with kids playing video games, as long as it isn't the only thing they do...

3-d games? Is there a doctor who has done research on the specific type of 3-d that the 3ds uses?

Frank Smith says:
That moron you're talking about is just repeating the warnings plastered all over every game and the 3ds itself. I guess you would know that if you would take the time to read the comment you're proudly declaring that you didn't read yet still feel obligated to judge.

Who cares about your kids? So instead of being "morons" they're going to learn from you to be snide? That's great...
