Yep, I'd second that - if the kiddies already have a DS (Lite) then a DSi or even the DSiXL doesn't really add much, so if they need a 'tech fix' for Christmas then an 8GB iPod Touch makes a heck of a lot more sense.
Besides, if my sprogs are anything to go by then a DSi is a "gee, thanks" present whereas the iPod would have them jumping up and down with excitement.
Still pity the poor schmucks who ponied up the money for a PSP (or PSPGo). I bought one and I think that I use the DSLite about 10x more, so with hindsight it was a bit of waste of money, (and I'm not the only one who thinks this - see the first posting on this thread!). I stuck with the DSLite instead of buying a DSi and I'm very sure I won't be rushing down to Game to get a DSiXL when it comes out.
