  • Securing DS, The Nerf Way
    When it comes down to the Nintendo DS Lite, it has really been the best-selling handheld game system on the market. But, there have been very few products out there that really do secure the DS Lite from severe damage if it shatters or breaks when you accidently drop it. The people of Nerf thankfully have made something very extra special. This DS Lite Nerf Armor is simple to setup, and its absolutely durable from preventing the DS from damage. It also fits very snugly into the DS Lite and with a price of nearly $15, it definitely is worth every penny. This is the most protective case that you can use to help protect your DS Lite, and safely also holds your DS Lite stylus pens' with great ease and security. If you're looking for added protection for your Nintendo DS Lite, than I really recommend the Nintendo DS Lite Nerf Armor, which comes in any color, in blue, black, red, and white. It really is worth the wait.

  • A Must For Small Children
    I can't recommend this product enough.

    Last month my eight year old dropped his DS on our hardwood floor and broke it. So when he received another from his Aunt & Uncle for Christmas I purchased the Nerf Armor for it and I have to say that this is one of the best buys that I've made in a long time. Because wouldn't you know it, he dropped the DS again tonight. Only this time thanks to the Nerf Armor it still works! As for having a hard time taking it out of the case, well that's not even an option because there is no way that I'll ever let him remove it!...more info
  • Easy to use and works.
    Bought this for my daughters DS. It works as advertised and has no problems. Buy it - it's worth the price to have the protection....more info
  • Nerf DS Lite Case
    I bought this along with a DS Lite for my 10 year old son for Christmas. He's a very responsible kid, but hey, everyone drops things. This case is really sturdy. I would not try and remove the DS once the case is on becasue it fits VERY snugly, but we are glad about that. We don't have much need to remove the case. Several of our friends have bought this case for their kids on our recommendation afer they broke their first DS's by dropping them. It's a great case. I'd HIGHLY recommend it....more info
  • Excellent
    Great protection for the unit. Make it more comfortable to hold for extended period of time.
    Had it for 6 months and it is wearing well.

    Good quality....more info
  • Good protection, but hard to remove for Guitar Hero game
    It there is no need to remove the case, this product is great. My kids have guitar hero and they always ask me to remove it. I need to use tools to remove the DS from the case. I am afraid to break the DS. But if there is no need to remove it, it is a great product. ...more info
  • Great Product
    The Nintendo DS Lite Nerf Armor works very well. It cushions the DS against damage from dropping and general bangs and bumps. It is easy to use with the DS and does not get in the way of the buttons....more info
  • Not too pretty but it protects my DS
    This thing is nice to protect my DS but I just don't think it looks that great with my gold DS. It does help me grip my DS better though when i'm playing it....more info
  • Awesome
    This DS was bought for my son whom is 7 and he just loves it and the Nerf Armor Case makes it less likely to slip and feels very comfortable in his hands.

    Great product.

  • Nerf Armor... can you ever get it off?
    I recently purchased a Nintendo DS lite and after watching two games break; one, bottom screen had lines in it so I guess my daughter accidently dropped it and the other one the hinge cracked. So I knew I better get something that would offer protection as well as style. I love everything about this cushy suit of armor except I can't get if off and I have tried, there were no instructions so I had to guess. I almost broke my game trying to free it from this great idea of a product except for this flaw. If anyone has this product please let me know immediately how to get the game out, otherwise I will end up damaging the game as well as my kids with theirs....more info
  • Not a very good item
    I got this to protect my DS. I was very pleased with it at first but now it is falling apart. My screan is all scratched up so i went on to [...] to see what to do they said i shoulde send it in. All they needed was my product code. So I went to look at my product code but the case was covering it. When I tried to take it off my top screen on my ds almost came off!


    If you want to take this case off in the future don't buy it....more info
  • Nerf Case
    A must for young children. I have a 3 and a 5 year old. Dropping the DS is a regular situation. This is a must have for anyone with young kids!!

  • Could be better
    The case is strong so it really protects your ds but if you're like me and would like to have your hardware in perfect condition (and I mean, without a single scratch) don't buy it. After a couple of weeks of using the case, I decided to take it out to clean my ds and wasn't I surprise with the scratches I found on the top cover. The problem is that the case leaves a little bit of room between the ds and the protector so particles of dust get stuck between both and your ds gets scratched....more info
  • Good for it's intended purpose
    I bought this case along with the DS Lite Dura-Case. Both good cases, but designed for two different purposes. While I prefer the Dura-Case, the Nintendo DS Lite Nerf Armor - blue/white is also very good.

    The nice things about this case are the good fit, fun style and ease of accessing your game slots and stylus. The bad things are no additional storage and it still allows some dust/dirt into the case in between the armor.

    I ended up giving this case to my daughter who likes it. She usually doesn't carry more than one came and so this is perfect for her....more info
  • Great case for Nintendo DS.
    I bought this for my sons nintendo DS, and it has saved it in several occasions from falls and scratches. It bounces when it falls to the floor causing no damage. The only drawback in my opinion is how hard it is to get off....more info
  • The Nerf Case for Nintendo DS - Great Case Option! Check it out!

    The Nerf Armor NDSL case lets you protect your Nintendo DS Lite at the right price. Over time I've bought a bunch of these to use for myself and to give as gifts. Hands down, it has become my favorite DSL case. It has many pros and only a few cons.

    A case is really required equipment for any DS purchase, and this is one that should definitely be at the top of your list. The original solid color cases, such as the Nintendo DS Black Nerf Armor, are in short supply, but now these bi-color combinations are available.

    The biggest issue with this case has little to do with quality. It is simply impossible to consistently find the color combination you want, which is a bigger deal when buying this for your children. Try to be as flexible with the color as you can.


    Pros
    + Durable Nerf material provides a nice secure cushion to protect your NDS
    + A great worry free choice for kids
    + Great design leaves open access to your stylus, controls and game slots!!
    + Cool color options including black, blue, pink, white and grey
    + Affordable price point (although I imagine it might go on sale from time to time)
    + Light Nerf material feels good in your hand, a true play-thru case

    Cons
    - Adds a lot of size due to the thick padding
    - Somewhat difficult to remove
    - All available colors not listed here on Amazon, and are difficult to find

    This case fulfills the two biggest requirements in a game case for your Nintendo DS Lite.

    First of all, this Nerf material has some give to it. As such, this case is by far THE BEST when exposed to the drop test. Instead of cracking the case, the cushiony material will bounce slightly and in most cases keep your NDS intact.

    Second, this case is well designed with open areas to access ALL those controls, game slots, and key features of your game player. That includes open spots for the headphone jack, volume control, and stylus! My first game case didn't have this feature, and it's taken me 3 cases to land on this one.

    The main downside to this guy is the added thickness of the case. At this size, they could have added more extras. Additionally, some colors seem to not be sold on Amazon, namely the grey.

    Still, this case does the job at a fair price. The Armor-Lite case by Joytech also has slots for your stuff, and is a lot less bulky. Nintendo DS Lite Armor Lite Case However, that case doesn't provide the same level of protection as the Nerf material does.

    If you are like me and protecting your case is priority #1, get this case! If you need something more sleek and less bulky, the clear armor-lite should be on your list.

    Enjoy!!!!

  • Practical and safe
    This is a great case. I got one for my 5 year old to help with the inevitable drops and it has kept his DS in great condition. He can still access all of the buttons. His older brother and sister both want one for their DS' also. The cases look good and keep the DS from getting broken....more info
  • DS Nintendo cases
    The Nintendo DS Lite Nerf Armor cases were bought for boys who all have the DS Nintendos. They specifically asked for the cases after a friend got one for Christmas. The boys will get these cases for their birthdays, in May. They seem to be durable....more info
  • LIKE THIS PRODUCT
    Got this for my 4 year old. After reading other reviews, I put a tissue thin piece of foam packing wrap between the ds and the nerf cover to prevent scratching. It was a perfect fit. The only thing I did not like was that when putting this on the ds, the nerf comes off the plastic frame. It is only glued on, and if you pull on this or twist the wrong way, it will detach. Once this cover is on, it is extremely difficult to get off. I used the tip of a small scissor to push the lip back a bit. NOTE: you may damage the ds or nerf cover by doing this, proceed with caution. Other than that, it serves it purpose. My son has dropped it a few times and no bad effects. I am happy with this item :) ...more info

    The best protection for your NDS lite. Once installed, it is very difficult to remove from your NDSL. Be advised, Once installed, your NDSL will not fit any of the factory cases because of the gained size......more info
  • NOT Compatible with GUITAR HERO Accessories
    I wanted to love this case when it arrived today, and I did for a few hours. Then my son said, "Mommy, I can't play guitar hero anymore with this thing on."

    After some choice words, I was able to remove the nerf cover and my son was then able to play guitar hero with his unprotected DS. I am extremely disappointed.

  • Best DS Case out there!!
    I bought three of these for my all three of my son's nintendo ds's. We have tried other cases that either didn't fit right or some of the port's were not exposed. Needless to say, they were constantly taking them off. This is the perfect case for your DS. All the ports are exposed and once this case is on, it is very difficult to get off. For me, with three young son's, this is a good thing. The only problem with it is that my oldest son likes to play guitar hero and for this game the case needs to come off for the hand grip. I can't get the case off for him to play this game. Still for me, not being able to play ONE game is worth having the DS protected. We have already had to send two systems away for repair because of drops and we replaced one altogether. This is the strongest case out there and the boys like the "nerf" feel of it. They say it is very comfortable. If you have young children this is a MUST!!! I am very happy with this product!...more info
  • Very convenient
    This was a nice purchase for the price. It holds the Nintendo DS snugly, and it has great cushioning to protect it well. I prefer it to the organizer we were using from a protection perspective. The only thing I would prefer is if it had straps or some way to easily carry it. ...more info
  • A MUST HAVE IF YOU OWN A DS
    I CANNOT BELIEVE NERF ARMOR WOULD BE REVIEWED AT ANY LESS THAN 5 STARS. AFTER MY SON BROKE HIS FIRST DS FROM DROPPING REPEATEDLY, I PURCHASED NERF ARMOR FOR HIS 2ND. HE STILL DROPS CONSTANTLY BUT IT COMPLETELY PROTECTS THE DS. HE PICKS AT THE EDGES AND SOMETIMES PULLS OFF LITTLE CHUNKS OF NERF AND THIS MEANS I NEED TO REPLACE EVERY 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR. STILL, AT ABOUT 15 BUCKS, I AM HAPPY TO PAY IT RATHER THAN DROP ANOTHER 130 FOR A NEW DS. ...more info
  • Great case!
    We bought this case for our 5-year old son's new DS. I'm really pleased with it so far.

    The fit of the case is very good. It has a hard plastic inner layer that fits directly against the DS. That inner layer is surrounded by a thick layer of the nerf foam. This seems like it will give really good drop protection. It closes nicely, and the cut-outs for the various buttons and slots are nicely sized.

    The one drawback to virtually every case, and this one seems to be no exception, is around the hinge. There's virtually no padding on the hinge at all, and the plastic pieces to this case are also exposed. It would seem that a drop to this area will possibly end up breaking the case's or the DS's hinge. You'll find this problem on pretty much every case, though.

    The extra thick padding on this case really is nice for peace of mind. It also is designed comfortably so that when playing the DS, it still feels good (or better, if you have adult sized hands). The cut outs are also angled, so that they get wider toward the outer edge of the case. This is a good thing - it guides your fingers toward the button, stylus, etc, and it also ensures there's no 90 degree corners to get snagged or picked off. The overall thickness of the foam does make the DS more bulky than a hard case or just a silicone sleeve, so you probably won't be putting it in your pocket any more, but the benefit is that this case seems like it will protect against falls better than the other types.

    I do wonder about the long-term cleanliness of the case. It's Nerf foam, so it can get dirty or wear away. Nerf balls also tend to degrade in left in the heat or sun. Hopefully we'll be caring for the DS better than a Nerf ball, so it's not too much of a concern.

    Once installed, it's very secure. My son tried to put it on himself, but actually put it in partially upside down, I had a really hard time getting it back out to put it on right. Once out, it installed very easily and hasn't come off since. I highly recommend this case....more info

  • Not a game, Amazon.
    This is a cool little addition to any DS in my opinion, but my 7 year old wanted it off after 1 day. He wanted the shiny exterior of his DS to show, so I took it off because he couldn't do it by himself. So while I think it was a good idea, he didn't care for it. After his DS gets scratched up and dropped a couple times, he might go back to it....more info
  • Good armor, but BEWARE
    This armor does add a layer of protection around my kids' DS'es, but BEWARE of a couple of things that we didn't find out until it was too late.

    1) With the armor on, my son can no longer play Guitar Hero for DS as the armor gets in the way and prevents the guitar hero hardware from being plugged into the DS.

    2) Once the armor is on a DS, it will not come off without destroying the armor. That means it won't fall off accidentally, which is good. But it also means we can't get it off for him to ever play Guitar Hero. I guess we'll be selling Guitar Hero....more info

  • It protects the DS alright, but it's a nightmare to remove
    I got this case for Christmas, and immediately opened it up and stuck my crimson and black DS Lite in it. It has the nice feel of cushy NERF foam, and its metal silver insides protects the DS well. A little too well. When I tried to remove the case to play Guitar Hero: On Tour, it wouldn't come off. I searched the box for removal instructions; none in sight. I searched the Internet for help and struggled with the case for several hours before I got it off. When I did get it off, it left silver paint marks all over my DS. Thankfully, it comes off with a little water.

    ================CASE REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS===================

    1. Pull the hinges out of their holes on each side of the DS and push the top half of the case upward and off the DS. You should have the top half off now.

    2. Turn the DS to the side so the power button is facing away from you. Push up on the stylus hole and push the tab holding the DS off at the same time. A corner of the DS should come out.

    3. Push off the rest of the tabs and the DS should come out.

    4. Scrub off the paint marks on your DS if any with a damp rag.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So, quick pros and cons:

    ==PROS==
    + Protects the DS from drops
    + Cushy NERF foam feels great
    + All ports and buttons remain accessible
    + Usual aggressively-lined NERF design

    ==CONS==
    - A nightmare to remove
    - Leaves paint marks on the DS
    - Adds tons of bulk
    - NERF is only glued onto the metal inside

    A great case for someone who tends to wreck their electronics easily, and wouldn't want to take it off. Otherwise, DO NOT BUY THIS CASE....more info
