Gameboy Movies


This is something neat that I just thought about. Did you ever see the movies that you can buy for the Gameboys? There's not that many, but it's a great idea, especially for the younger kids. We have a couple of the Cartoon Network shows and we have Shrek 2. My 14 year old wanted to take it on the ski bus for her to watch with her friend, but then ended up forgetting the earphones (you need them to hear anything on the bus). They also work on the Nintendo DS. It's a great idea if you have the Nintendo, but not a portable DVD player. It's so easy to carry around, too. My youngest just discovered it today, so she was busy watching it. She kept calling Shrek2 - Sharkboy and Lavagirl. I told her no, it was Shrek 2.

"No it's not mom. It's Shrek 8. I'm serious mom."

OK, whatever. But anyway, to take to a basketball game or for the ride on the bus, great.

Those are the best! I entertain my children with them as well. Great for car trips.

Nice to meet you!

Good idea, we are always looking for things to keep the kids busy on our 6 hour car rides to IL. :)

Good idea. We also have discovered that our kids can watch movies on their MP3 players.

We don't have game boys at our house...my girls aren't too into them...I think they will be eventually though. Busy kids are good kids, right?

I'm with the others. I had no idea this existed. My in-laws got Clever her Gameboy two years ago and Funny got a Nintendo DS this year. I would also like to know where you got the movies. Thanks!

We have the PSP's but they do the same thing, and they are great for the car because they can play games and watch movies...

What a great idea - I didn't know that at all! The kids both got a DS for Christmas. We are taking a trip at the end of the month and this will be perfect!
