Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Belly pillow, butt pillow - photos by Yuji Mori

I wanted to post something sweet after sharing that mean vine, and then I remembered it’s been years since I last posted #handholding photos from Mori’s collection. Look at how much this kid has grown since that 2009 pic (these were taken in 2011)!

I don’t know how one could page through Mori’s photos and not want to be part of that family.

Playing 3DS in the bath

I saw this strange accessory last week that lets you play your 3DS in the bath/shower/ocean, and I remembered there were a few #handholding posts I had stashed away for such an occasion! These pics, left to right, come from Animal Complex and Stephanie.

So, how many of you have risked your 3DS already to play New Leaf while soaking the day’s dirt away? I kind of want to do that for hours, perfecting my museum rooms in the bath, until the water’s gone cold and my skin’s all pruny.

Tabletop gaming
This looks totally dangerous, but it’s how Margarita found her daughter Ruth’Anne playing her DS Lite when she walked in the room. Kids have a knack for finding odd ways/places to play portable games!

Real world video game scenes

I don’t normally get down with the thousands of photos for perler bead game sprites that I see posted online, but these scenes by 8bit_mario3 are tight.

BUY Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL consoles, upcoming releases

Handhelds in Havana, Cuba
Cuba lifted its ban on consumer electronic sales in 2008, when Raul Castro took over as president in place of his ailing brother Fidel. Kids there can now play GBA SPs and other gaming handhelds (though, on an unrelated but odd note, they can’t listen to Reggaeton on the radio — the country recently banned Reggaeton music from its airwaves due to the genre’s often sexually aggressive themes).
