My 12 Year Old Daughter is the Expert Nintendo DS Game Player That I Consulted for This List of Games
Nintendo DS games are easy gifts to buy for kids for several reasons. Nintendo DS games are reasonably-priced gifts that can easily be packed in a suitcase for travel. Kids really love the Nintendo DS games and will start using them immediately, and they have long-term usage because it takes time for a child to learn the game, and play all the way through.
Most games also have side functions, and kids can spend hours playing them. Nintendo DS game players are a great investment for parents to buy, because kids can play them anywhere. My 12-year-old daughter plays hers at my job, in the car, and at home whenever she needs to fill in some time. Her Nintendo DS is just about the only thing that keeps her quiet, and sitting for more than a few seconds.
Nintendo DS players stay charged for quite some time. Our player is about 3 years old and it plays for about 3 hours before it needs to be charged again. My daughter loves the concept of interacting with her favorite characters from movies and TV shows, and really enjoys playing her Nintendo DS.
The purpose of this list is to separate out the games that girls like to play. The overwhelming majority of Nintendo DS players are boys, and some of the games designed for girls are not really that interesting. So I asked my expert 12 year old girl to compile a real list of Nintendo DS games for girls.
Pokemon is one of my daughter’s favorites because she loves to collect the Pokemon because they are so cute (her words).
Pokemon: X and Y Nintendo DS Games
I learned from my daughter that these games come in pairs, and each pair is basically the same game, so if your daughter has X, then don’t get Y, and vice versa. These are the newest Pokemon games for this year.
Monster High: 13 Wishes – Nintendo 3DS
There is no question that Monster High is one of the most popular shows this year, with all kinds of toys and games. This is a new game for Nintendo, and girls will love it.

Before You Buy Nintendo DS Games, You Need to Buy the Nintendo DS3
This toy is well worth the investment.
We went with the basic black for our daughter and the basic silver for our other daughter (who is now 20 and still plays with the Nintendo). Neither of them wanted the colored DS consoles.
Disney Pixar Movie Brave Nintendo DS Interactive Disney Studios Game
Great game for girls!
Brave: The Video Game for Nintendo DS is a Third-Person Action-Adventure game that is a companion release to the Disney/Pixar 2012 major animated release of the same name. Brave is Pixar’s first fairy tale release and features the adventures of Merida, the studio’s first female lead character in a movie. The game features: a family-friendly storyline, bow and arrow as well as a sword combat, agile in-game movement, puzzle play, characters from the movie as well as others unique to the game, and exclusive mini-games.

On this game, girls can own cats, feed them, train them, and play with them. This is a good game for younger children because it is fairly simple to learn and manipulate.
Phineas and Ferb Nintendo DS Game
Phineas and Ferb is a great Disney cartoon that is actually very clever and fun for both adults and kids. My husband and I love it. To read more about the show, follow this link. The game is like the show, so kids who like the show will also love the game. In the game, kids become Phineas and Ferb or Candace and play out each episode of the show.
This PokÃ©mon Black Nintendo DS is my daughter’s favorite Pokemon game. Kids can collect Pokemon, and take them on adventures, battle other Pokemon, and the Pokemon will evolve.
Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever and New Friends Nintendo DS Games
If your child is an animal lover, they will spend endless hours with these Nintendogs games. Each Nintendogs game features different kinds of dogs, but the games themselves are the same. This is a good game for younger kids because it doesn’t need a lot of dexterity, and it involves cute fluffy animals.
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl
With a girl as the main character, this game makes a great gift for girls. They can enjoy playing as the heroine of this game.
Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl offers two full length experiences: The expanded story mode takes players on a journey to unravel the mystery of the Yggdrasil Tree’s origins, and the classic mode updates the original Etrian Odyssey. Both versions feature the same gameplay conveniences, updated 3D graphics, and StreetPass abilities as in Etrian Odyssey IV. The biggest addition to Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is the story mode – a first for the series. The story mode gives players five pre-made characters, each with their own personalities and dialogue to explore a side of Etria not seen in the first game. Adventurers must brave new dungeon layouts, floors and enemies to find out the truth behind the Yggdrasil Tree, and uncover amnesiac gunner Frederica’s secrets.
Both my 12 year old and my 16 year old girls like to play this against each other. This is a game that can be played on two Nintendo DS games simultaneously even with one game. It is a silly and fun car racing game that would be a good choice for younger kids to play.
