Scribble with your stylus to create a 2D or 3D image with a limited amount of ink, then add badges you’ve earned in Nintendo Badge Arcade***, or even attach a screenshot from your favourite game. Now, send it to a Doodle Pal via SpotPass** – when they open your note, they’ll watch your creation come to life as an animation, exactly how you drew it!

Stay connected

Whether it’s a little letter, a simple reminder or a cute cartoon you’ve drawn, your super scribbles are sure to brighten up someone’s day! You can even receive messages when your Nintendo 3DS family system is in Sleep Mode, so you and your mates can always keep in touch**.

Just in time

Is your best friend’s birthday around the corner? Draw them something nice and then set the Date Stamp to their special day – that way, your friend will only be able to open your message when the time is right. Why not send some seasonal greetings to loved ones, too?

Oodles of doodles

Up to four pages can fit inside each note, so there’s plenty of room for you to doodle away. You can even include secret pages – these sneaky slides will stay hidden from your friend until they reply, so you can always have the last word.
