I have decided to keep suggestions for what I think are Nintendo Best 3DS Games for girls separate from regular DS games to avoid confusion. You can play DS games on a 3DS but you can’t play 3DS games on a Nintendo DS. Visit my Nintendo DS Games for Girls ( 8-12 years old) post to see my picks for best Girls DS games.
As mentioned several times in my blog I am a big fan of video games. I am always on the hunt in our homeschooling community for the latest and BEST video games. Recently I am seeing more kids withNintendo 3DS console.
I do find there is a difference between video games that appeal to girls than the ones boys enjoy playing. I have made up lists of Best Nintendo DS games for boys and 3DS Games for boys as well. Here are some Nintendo 3DS games that I think are a good play value for girls in the 8-12 year old range.
Best Nintendo 3DS Games for Girls
Updated January 2012
Super Mario 3D Land was just released and like most of the Mario franchise it is excellent and does not disappoint.
Great play value as the game is good for all ages and for both girls and boys.
Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever and New Friends is surefire hit. This interactive video game lets you train you r pet to do tricks and respond to your commands. You also need to take care of your pet- feeding, grooming and regular trips to the vet. Girls LOVE this game.
Other titles in the series:
Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog and New Friends
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is well designed and lots of fun. More suitable for older girls.
