Quoting wilde_mommy:" He is an ass for lying to you about it. Now it just sucks that your DS's hopes are up about getting one. ... [snip!] ... to buy him one doing payments? Or maybe just get him a more age appropriate LeapPad, those are pretty cheap and really durable."
I would get that but he's really into watching youtube videos. DS's hopes aren't up, since he said his dad wouldn't get it I didn't argue with him and I have just been telling him I'll get him one when I can, which I will but it won't be for now.
He got an innotab last year and wasn't very interested in it.
