to think that Nintendo are a bit out of order getting primary school teachers to advertise for them?

This is my first ever AIBU so a bit nervous, please be gentle!

But is it not a bit weird? I don't really have any strong feelings about Nintendo DSs per se - I have no particular problem with kids having them. I don't much like it when I see really little kids with them, or kids in restaurants, or friends of my DCs glued to them when we have gone to their house to play, but generally I think they look like fun.

This new ad, though, where the junior school teacher takes them into class and talks about what a great educational tool they are - really? I know DSs have some great learning programmes on them, but something about that ad doesn't sit right with me, I don't know why.

Could be, I'm not sure. Is Nintendo sponsoring that blog or something???

Clever marketing people at Nintendo, eh?

Isn't it similar to tutoring services bribing schools to send letters home to parents suggesting that parents might wish to consider using the services? Schools get a kick back from every response received.
