About this group
Nintendo has been creating and innovating since 1889, when it began life as a company making Hanafuda Cards. It took the best part of a century for the company to move into the games console market and, when they did, they kept the emphasis firmly on fun and mental challenges.
Nintendo have always excelled at creating games which mix learning with fun. Many of their games are based around solving puzzles, such as the Professor Leyton games, others help to develop practical skills, such as drawing. The flexibility of the Nintedo DS and 3DS makes them popular with everyone - from the One Direction boys, to Julie Walters and Patrick Stewart!
Unfortunately, the same features that make the Nintendo DS and 3DS popular with games players are exactly the reasons why they are also popular with thieves. Additionally the consoles are designed to be enjoyed on the move, which means they are at greater risk of knocks, drops and spills.
