A stylus with a bit more fun added.
Losing your stylus is an annoying thing to happen. Yeah, sure, they are easy and inexpensive to replace. But you can guarantee that it will be lost just when you need it. Wouldn’t it be great if someone created a larger, more pen like stylus, that was easier to keep hold of. Better still if it looked cute as well.
PDP have created a range of character stylus’ for the DS. They come in a variety of colours and each feature a 3D character, from the world of Mario, on the end. They also come with a coloured wrist strap that can be attached to the stylus through a small hole.
These stylus’ are well built and will stand up to the most stylus unfriendly children out there. But that is an important point, these stylus’ are designed primarily for children. The 3D character on the end makes them uncomfortable in larger hands. Smaller hands, however, will find these to be very nice to use and they can be used for without discomfort for much longer than a regular stylus. The contours of the stylus help with the comfort.
Another downside to these stylus’ is that, being the size of an average pen, they are obviously too big to fit into the DS for storage. But they are also too big to fit into most DS cases as well, making them far easier to misplace.
With a great selection to choose from, one of these will make a great gift for the avid DS fan. They are available from both Argos and GAME, with prices varying from Â£4.99 to Â£7.99.
