Nintendo NY Store Back to School Celebration

To celebrate NYC kids return to school, Nintendo hosted a "Back to School Celebration" for families in their Nintendo NY store at Rockefeller Plaza.


Note: I was invited as media to this event and received a 2DS XL and video games for review purposes. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.




Arriving families received various school supplies including pencils, keychains, book marks and level up certificates. All to celebrate kids going into new grades.


I really like the idea behind of the honor certificates. It encourages kids to focus and be active during the first month of school. There's a check lists both parents and kids can go over to complete and return to the store for a reward!

Would you like a certificate or other branded items? Visit the Play Nintendo "Back to School" site where you can download


You can also take personality quizzes, learn how to get straight A's, make DIY pen toppers and other fun activities.




Once kids received their Nintendo branded back to school goodies, they enjoyed some game play with the varies Nintendo consoles in the store. My son joined other kid bloggers for competitive and supportive game play.




While my son was gaming away, I took the time to check out a few other branded items families could use during the school year. I saw a few products from back packs, notebooks, water bottles and more.


But soon the event ended and we had to head out. But before we did, my son received a special package. His very own Nintendo 2DS XL and 2 video games!

To say he was excited is an under statement. Of course he wanted to open and play it right away. After going through the setup, he started gaming!


I have to say at first glance I'm really impressed with the Nintendo 2DS XL. It very different then the 2DS we had before. I like both the look and feel of the device. It's a great size for little hands and the dual display really helps you get into the game. The game screen is crips, bright and vivid. Kids won't notice that the games are only in 2D.

I still have to get into the system and see how the parental settings and other features works. But just based on my first looks, I think the 2DS XL is a great option for gaming families.

Want to learn more about the 2DS XL system and video games we received? Watch the below trailers.

Nintendo 2DS XL Launch Trailer


Nintendo 2DS XL offers pricing and features that fit between the Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems. The new system will be available in a stylish black/turquoise color, and will use the same size large screen found on New Nintendo 3DS XL systems.

While the visuals are displayed in 2D only and the system lighter, it still packs the same power as New Nintendo 3DS XL, and has built-in NFC support for amiibo cards and figures. It can play the massive library of quality Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS games in 2D.

The Nintendo 2DS XL also features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access.
