I've been looking for one of these for my son for a while, but didn't want to spend £80.
Now, they have the blue and pink ones for half-price. There are also games reduced!
Both my kids have the original v-smiles and they are great for letting them play games that actually are educational - so you don't feel as guilty that they're spending time on a games console.
