Nintendo DS Spring Bundle

I am super excited to introduce you to a fun new bundle, just in time for Mother’s Day! Nintendo has paired up two fantastic items that are a must-have for every mom – The Nintendo DS Lite and Personal Trainer: Cooking – and even thrown in a chic wristlet, perfect to compliment any hand bag! Check out the DS Spring Bundle and I’m sure you’ll agree that it would be a fantastic Mother’s Day gift.

Now, this is one bundle I wish I had been sent to “test-drive”… Instead I have one to give to a lucky mama!!

Here’s how to enter:

  • Head over and check out all of the great features this bundle has to offer and then come back and leave me a comment on this post, by 9pm on May 30th, telling me why you would be excited to win. Come on, be creative…. “I’m not a great cook, but would love to find a recipe, from my own personal trainer, to dazzle my hubby!”

  • For additional entries feel free to grab the giveaway button from below and place it on your sidebar, send a tweet, or leave the link to this giveaway on your blog or Facebook page. Be sure to leave me a separate comment with a link to your blog, tweet, or Facebook page.

Wow that game looks great, expecially for someone like me who is a bit challenged in the kitchen but has to cook for 4 people everyday. It would be great to get this for not only me, to increase my much needed cooking ability and variety, but also for my family so they won’t have to put on a fake smile and try to swallow my attempt at a meal. I know that with this cooking trainer and helper, my skills in the kitchen will flurish and my family will be happier at meal time. :)

Christina May 30, 2009 at 5:40 am

Toys and food are always a great combination! I’d love to win this bundle and try out a million new recipes!

Angela Palmer May 30, 2009 at 5:42 am

My teenage daughter is very health conscious right now and loves to cook. This would be ideal for her.

Deci Worland May 30, 2009 at 5:49 am

Wow, I prepare three meals a day, every day. I work as a domestic, plus feed my own household. This would really help me.

Deci Worland May 30, 2009 at 5:53 am

I have the button.

Marilyn Higgins May 30, 2009 at 6:15 am

I would love to have this to help me plan meals, it’s hard for me to come up with something as I’m having problems with my sense of taste.
Thanks for the chance to win

Jeanette H. May 30, 2009 at 9:48 am

I love to cook and try new recipes so I would LOVE to try out the personal trainer for new and exciting recipes.

Thank you for the great giveaway!


jjean May 30, 2009 at 10:29 am

I would be excited to win because it would coach me in making recipes from around the world. That way I could eat at home more because I wouldn’t crave international take-out. Thanks!

Susan@my2boyz May 30, 2009 at 10:30 am

How cool!!!! This would be a wonderful tool in helping me plan meals…i am always looking a the clock at 4:00 pm and wondering what the heck are we going to have for dinner? I am a bad planner!! Thanks for a great giveaway!

This technology amazes me! From the site: “Ready to take on the world? Now, with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, you can connect wirelessly, chat and play with Nintendo DS owners across the globe. All you need to play is a Nintendo DS and a Wi-Fi-ready game. There are no subscription fees — the service is free!”

Never thought I’d see the day when recipes would be available this way!

Ann May 30, 2009 at 10:47 am

My favorite thing is that it comes with a wristlet because it would protect it in my purse or tote!

Ann May 30, 2009 at 10:47 am

I have your DS button on my left sidebar.

Annette May 30, 2009 at 11:15 am

I love it! I have trouble creating a meal that all my picky eaters will eat, I’m sure that I could get some help from the Personal Trainer-Cooking. It would be great!

Lorie Shewbridge May 30, 2009 at 11:40 am

I love to cook, and all my recipes are on my computer. I have to keep going across the kitchen to my computer and put my glasses on to read them…. I love the fact that it can speak to you and tell you what to do – whithout putting on my reading glasses. Ain’t it heck to get old!! Thanks for the chance to win.

Leigh Nichols May 30, 2009 at 12:25 pm

I love the new color!! I’ve really been wanting to get one of these- there are so many neat games now for adult women- I love that they break the gaming stereotype!

Sandy Miresse May 30, 2009 at 12:55 pm

I’m even bored with my own cooking! And with a Nintendo DS I could also invest in a brain game and heaven knows I need that!!

Bob L May 30, 2009 at 12:58 pm

I’d like to win this for my wife because she wants the Nintendo DS – I’d never tell her that she could also use the cooking tips.

Robin May 30, 2009 at 1:07 pm

I would love to try the personal trainer cookbook, since I love trying new recipes

Susanne Troop May 30, 2009 at 1:31 pm

I love to cook and it would be great to try new recipes. I could also use the personal trainer!

Geoff K May 30, 2009 at 1:35 pm

I love that the DS Chef gives instruction for making food from more than 30 countries – my friends and I often have multicultural potlucks, so it would be terrific to surprise them with some new dishes with the help of this awesome game pack. Thanks!

I love the new wi-fi features and I’d like to be able to play wirelessly with my little cousins. I think i’d be most excited to get the brain age games to play on it.

Erin Cunningham May 30, 2009 at 1:42 pm

I’ve had the giveaway button in my events section of my sidebar for a while.

Ramonia Spain May 30, 2009 at 1:59 pm

This is great! Sometimes I wish I could carry my desk top to the kitchen and get my recipes straight off the internet, instead of running back and forth to the PC for the recipe. But I see with this little gadget it makes it easy for you to bring your own personal chef right into the kitchen. The features the Nintendo DS Lite and Personal Trainer: Cooking are even better then the internet and a lot easier then carrying your PC into the kitchen.

I especially like that it talks you through the recipes and has cooking demonstrations on it! Whoo Hoo! If I win this I will be more compelled to make a daring yet delicious dish with fool proof ways not to mess it up : )

Randy Bailey May 30, 2009 at 2:03 pm

I would love this because I am always willing 2 try new things, new technology. They just have a gadget 4 everything nowadays

Laurie C May 30, 2009 at 2:13 pm

How cool that they finally have USEFUL DS games for mom! I’d love to have recipes at my fingertips. Thanks for the contest!

DENISE May 30, 2009 at 2:23 pm

I like the personal trainer aspect. Thank you!

Brian E. May 30, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Thanks for the giveaway…The Nintendo DS is the perfect solution as a gift for my youngest daughter: it combines both her love of cooking & baking (she is already a pro at baking homemade oatmeal cookies…and her from scratch pasta sauce is nonpareil ) AND her other passion, computers…especially Interactive Gaming !!! We’ve got a 10 year old chef / computer wiz on our hands.

Cindy May 30, 2009 at 2:35 pm

This would be fabulous to bring out the inner cook in me which by the way isn’t there at all. I try so hard but I tend to work off memory and that gets me in trouble. To have this on hand right next to me to walk me through the cook would make me so much better in my cooking and my family would love you for it!

JoAnn L. May 30, 2009 at 4:04 pm

I am in the process of trying to lose a lot of weight 200 pounds or so. I am looking for new recipes to prepare at home, the Personal Cooking Trainer would be great.

Sandy May 30, 2009 at 5:18 pm

Impressive! I would love this The Nintendo DS Lite and Personal Trainer: Cooking. Love to cook and enjoy finding new recipes, especially from around the world.

Jayme Isaacs May 30, 2009 at 5:30 pm

I Would Be Really Excited To Win This Nintendo DS Because I Always Wanted To Buy One But I Cant Afford It

Angela May 30, 2009 at 5:37 pm

I want to win because I love cooking and my boyfriend has been wanting a Nintendo DS!

Pauline M May 30, 2009 at 5:46 pm

I have three kids, all of which have their own DS and I think it’s time I get a little splurge. I would also love to try out the cooking coach. My kids remind me that I’m a so-so cook and I’ll admit that the menus I prepare a pretty limited, though last night I attempted to cook german sausage last night and am finally willing to admit that I probably need some real assistance on learning to cook!

Crystal F May 30, 2009 at 5:54 pm

With 245+ recipes I know I could find atleast one that I could fix and the whole family enjoy. lol My youngest ends up eating something totally different from us due to her being picky about what she eats. With that many recipes I would have to be able to find something that she would eat with us. Thank you!

Sarah Z May 30, 2009 at 6:05 pm

This would be great because I need step by step instructions – I have been known to skip a step!

Brooke May 30, 2009 at 6:59 pm

OOO I love that you can pause while you are cooking along.. Plus they fact they give you tips and show you what to do.. My DH needs this…

Amy May 30, 2009 at 7:04 pm

I have seen the ad for this so many times I can’t help but want it! We love to try new things and the step by step instructions are ideal!

deborah May 30, 2009 at 7:08 pm

I’d love to have this because I’m not a very good cook and maybe this would help. It has many great features that would be so helpful. I especially like that you can just tap a box to mark ingredients you need to buy. The DS will automatically store them in your in-game shopping list. Later you can take your DS to the store and check off the ingredients as you put them in your cart. thanks!

Wow, great giveaway. I would be excited to win this b/c it would make a great gift for my gf. She loves to cook and I think that she would get a kick out of all of the recipes from around the world. It is like carrying around a portable chef instructor.

Janet May 30, 2009 at 7:51 pm

looks and sounds like fun:)cut back on cookbooks:)ty 4 the entry in your awesome giveaway:)

shar May 30, 2009 at 8:08 pm

wow, this looks great…I need more inspiration, I am becoming stale in my meals/cooking and this would help…plus it would eliminate the need for all the heavy awkward cookbooks that we have right now..
time for a reward for me, Mama mia!

Gianna May 30, 2009 at 8:35 pm

I would love to win because this would be a whole new way of learning how to cook. I love to cook so this is very exciting :)

Helen May 30, 2009 at 8:49 pm

Since the economy has taken a nose dive, we can’t afford to eat out as often as we used to and I have to cook a lot and my family gets very tired of my usual recipes so this would be perfect to try new recipes.

Heather May 30, 2009 at 8:51 pm

I’m not really the best cook, but I would love to see and try some of these great recipes

Marcy Strahan May 30, 2009 at 8:52 pm

I would be excited to win this! I love how it’s like having a personal tranier & can teach you how to cook.
It’s small & I can have right in the kitchen!

When I am done ~I have 1 game that I won & never had the game unit!
Money is just too tight!

So this would improve my cooking skills which means better meals for my family plus it would add a little fun too.
