    Plug and Play games I think? I think that may be what they are called. WalMart has a good variety, and probably the best prices.

    ETA...I just noticed our screen names are similar. Are you a figure skating coach too?

    We found them both at Walmart and Target. At Target they were in the toy section. At Walmart we found them with the video games and DVDs.

    I looked high and low for them when I didn't know what exactly I was looking for. I finally asked by the computer games and they sent me to the toy section in Target.

    My DS6 loves them -- almost as much as the real video games.

    I was just at Toys r us last night and noticed a bunch of them in the electronics section - they even had a Disney Princess one! Sorry, I didn't notice the price though.

    What a bummer! All of them were in stock when I posted. I found this deal on another board, so I guess the site got picked over quickly. I checked my status and the Ms. Pac Man I ordered yesterday has already shipped. Do keep checking the site - one or more may come back in stock - worth a shot! I've also purchased the SpongeBob handheld at Kohls.com when they were around the same price, so check there too.

    They just pulled them off the website. I don't seem to be winning lately. Thanks. If you see them anywhere else I would appreciate the heads up. Ü
