My mother-in-law is planning on buying my 4 year old a Nintendo DSi for Christmas this year. I haven't ever used one or even played one and was wondering if it is durable enough to handle a typical 4 year old? I obviously plan on informing him that it's not just something you throw around and he understands that things are breakable, but things happen when you're 4 regardless.
I assume I will buy a carrying case or something for it if there isn't one already included with it.
If it's not durable enough by itself, are there bumper cases (like an iPhone or equivalent) that wrap it and protect it available that will help it last a bit longer in case it's dropped? If so, do they hinder play, and does anyone have recommendations as to the best ones to get? Would I need any sort of screen protector?
