I gave my DS lite to my now 5 and a half year old son about 18 months ago. Admittedly there were some cracks in the case hinges when I gave it to him. The current repair list since stands at: 2x complete shells - both replaced due to the right hand hinge breaking off completely. 1x touch screen - replaced as the original would no longer calibrate. 1x touch screen ribbon cable connector - the original broke when replacing the touch screen so I installed a modified version which is a lot stronger and easier to use.
