People of any age can use and enjoy the Nintendo 3DS system and Nintendo 3DS software.

However, the use of the 3D feature by children aged six and under may cause vision damage. Therefore it is recommended that:

  • If children aged six and under have access to the system, parents or legal guardians should restrict the display of 3D images using the Parental Controls feature.
