ds cant play gameboy or gameboy color games although it can play gameboy advance games or you could buy a r4 card and load an emulator up for all your gameboying needs

GBA was long dead by the time of Shrek 3 - so this sounds dodgy. Did come out for the DS but then what is GB doing in the title?

Looks like Shrek 3 did indeed come out on GBA, but only in the US. So the ones on eBay are all US cartridges.

There's no region locking on GBA carts as far as I know, so OP, yes you're fine to buy it. It will work on DS.
