Little Girls Writes A Letter To Nintendo, Gets A Free DS?

Illustration for article titled Little Girls Writes A Letter To Nintendo, Gets A Free DS?

That's what this letter seems to suggest, when a girl - forced to write a letter to a company for a school project - bugs Nintendo for a DS, and Nintendo obliges.


At least, that's what this exchange would have you believe. I have some doubts; there's no photo of the DS, which is weird, and if I worked for Nintendo I'd reserve the free handhelds for kids dying of cancer. Or who can at least come up with a better reason than...their parents wouldn't buy them one (even though they did buy a Wii).

We asked Nintendo of Australia to confirm this was legit and didn't hear back, so...bear that in mind before you start penning your own "Dear Nintendo" letters.


UPDATE: Cynicism be damned, it's real. Though Nintendo of Australia stresses that the DS was sent to her school, and is for the use of her entire class, not just "Helen".

Wait... she is 11 years old, look at the handwriting and then her signature. I don't believe for one second that she is actually 11 years old. I don't believe that Nintendo would send a free DS to just anyone who wrote in a letter.

I call bogus.

Maybe I'm just an old fart.
