    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. [​IMG]

    I'm right there with you..

    My 11 year old is on her second one (although she takes very good care of hers), first one had a broken hinge. Replaced with a ebay pink/black unit.

    My 7 year old is on his 3rd. One new white one until the hinge broke. Fixed with red and blue case, until the hinge broke. Bought new blue/black unit. Until hinge broke. Bought ebay ice blue unit. Until he poured pickle juice all over it. Just replaced motherboard and touch screen today..

    My 5 year old is on her 2nd unit. Her first was a hand-me-down from her older sister, I replaced the lower case's broken hinge. It eventually completely fell apart, and I scavenged a franken-case to get her by. Just bought a red/black unit for her last night, used her left-over motherboard and screen to fix her brother's unit.
