Even if you have the serial number, NIntendo will refuse to help you unless you've filed a police report. Trust me, I know. Just go to the police if you can.

That said, if you have the original packaging, i think the serial number is also listed on the 3DS' box.

Doesn't the 3DS XL use the same DSi charger the normal 3DS uses? You could probably just get a DSi charger for pretty cheap.

none. Black Friday is an event made directly for hypocrites who are thankful for nothing on Thanksgiving. i take Thanksgiving very seriously, its one of my favorite holidays.

I like how you choose to observe the original theme of the Thanksgiving holiday — the large-scale theft of an entire continent's worth of land from its native inhabitants by invaders from across the ocean. How does your family choose to celebrate, by invading the neighbors' yard and using their land and trees to craft furniture upon which to relax? Do you build a fire-pit to roast their pets over an open flame since none of you will have eaten well for months beforehand? Or do you go straight for their living room to set up camp, watch their TV and use their kitchen to make a giant feast out of their own groceries, which you then serve back to them (along with the rest of your family, of course) in an ironic 'gesture of peace'?

Hey guys, just a heads-up — if you have no honest suggestions for a concerned parent, please do yourself a favor and don't bother commenting. Thanks in advance!
Don't worry, if your comment is still here in the thread, you're good to go. This is just for the ones I've had to delete is all :3

That said, @WingedSnagret's idea is pretty good — the DS' online capabilities are pretty screwed thanks to the insistence on WEP connections, but if you think she could get around even that somehow, there's always the GBA. :3

Thirding the Game Chat thing, plus it does give you the ability to put an image you've taken via your 3DS on your profile that would be visible to other people. Yes, there are parental controls you can set to avoid that sort of thing, but Pokemon X/Y in particular are very geared toward people being open and out there in order to trade and battle with others, to 'catch 'em all' as it were. The game does tell you when there are other players nearby (local wireless, not just over internet) and give you the opportunity to interact with them. If she doesn't have the desire to keep to herself and has a natural knack for getting around parental controls and other roadblocks, again, I would very much recommend you only allow her to play it while properly supervised so that you know at all times exactly what she's up to. if that's not an option, you may want to skip the 3DS this year.

I know she wants Pokemon X/Y very much, but is she at all interested in a Wii U? Perhaps a home console would be something more easily monitored/access controlled in the home?

@Knubbsai: That would only work if she was prohibited from bringing the 3DS along with her outside of the home — and also if the neighbors' internet was properly secured, and no one decided to run a hotspot off their phone while in the home.

@Cyb3Rnite: No offense, but the OP isn't asking about you. They're concerned with their own child's safety in this world where perverts hook up with children through Swapnote and get the whole service shut down. It's great that you turned out unscathed, though.

@ManicMommy: If you're planning to password-lock the system and you're serious about keeping your kid on internet-access lockdown, my advice would be to only allow her to play while at home or properly supervised (don't let her take it out to school or anyplace she could potentially get an unhindered wireless signal), and change the PIN every so often. There are tools out there to get past the PIN lock already (google them if you're curious, please don't link any here guys), and if she sounds mature enough over the phone Nintendo may accidentally be kind enough to do it for her (it preys off the idea that the parent or guardian may have genuinely forgotten the PIN and need access to the system again).

It really sucks that creepers out there can potentially ruin the simple fun of playing a doggone video game :( Best of luck to you, whatever you decide.

@Morpheel: I do agree with you on that one — Black Friday always goes by faster with more people in the store. The only time you don't want them showing up is right at the last minute when you're trying to close, haha. Last year was somewhat slow for us compared to years prior and they were sending people home early (of course not me though, bleh), so i hope that doesn't happen to us this year :3

i've commented quite a bit on this topic on Facebook lately — I worked in the Orlando theme parks for nearly a decade, and getting a holiday off was something that never happened. They'd pay us time-and-a-half and Universal and Sea World usually had a nice free lunch available for employees, but Disney made you pay. Hotel workers, airport staff, restaurant employees (yes, there are restaurants open on Thanksgiving!)... there are stores that never close on Thanksgiving like Michaels, places like gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores open 'til 3 or so in case you need that last thing you forgot the night before or you ruined the pie and need to pick up something ready-made to replace it. No one cared before this year, and now it's suddenly the most horrible thing ever. why do we need one special day to enjoy a good meal with friends, family, and loved ones? there are 365 in a year to be had, just limiting yourself to a handful because society says you must do (x) thing on (y) day is a sad thing.

all rambling aside, the bottom line is that If there wasn't demand for stores to be open on Thanksgiving, stores wouldn't be open on Thanksgiving. me, i'm gonna put on my best smile, milk that 'oh you poor thing you have to work on Thanksgiving' sympathy from every customer I help, enjoy how quickly the day goes by (time flies when you're busy) and rake in that sweet time-and-a-half. then i'm gonna go join the festivities and try to see if there are any 3DSes left over at Target. I don't fault anyone for shopping tomorrow or wish bad things upon them, and I genuinely wish everyone working or venturing out to snap up gifts a safe and happy holiday. the more they buy, the better it is for my store and everyone who works there, so I'm sure it's the same at other stores too. :3

Kung Pow is actually a god-awful, terrible movie that winds up being funny somehow. I guess it helps if you're a Muppets fan. a friend of mine absolutely loves it, and i remember we spent a while just playing with the DVD menu because we both found it hilarious :3

as for bad movies I enjoy, Judge Dredd has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I also love Babylon A.D. for some weird reason. and The Guyver is also pretty horribad, lol, but it's got Mark Hamill in it :3

i haven't seen any of Survivor Series, but everyone winds up with crappy storylines now and again, or parts in crappy storylines. i'm hoping Kane is just in there to wreak havoc eventually as opposed to just jumping whenever Stephanie says 'how high', but i'm also prepared to be disappointed :/

i miss the days of him and Bryan as a tag team... those skits were hilarious.

i am liking how they've got everyone hawking WWE merch, though. it reminds me of DX with H and Shawn cutting up. R Truth had me dying of laughter :3
