I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I bought one of these bundles for my son for Christmas. It's supposed to have a checkered wrist strap, decals and other such item specific things. Well, the wrist strap is plain black. I know it's not just mine either. I took the first one I bought back and exchanged it, same problem, plain wrist strap. So I took it back again, that store had no more so I went to yet another store, had them open every single one in the store and they ALL had the plain wrist strap, that makes 9 of them at 2 different stores. I know this might sound like a petty thing, but that wrist strap is a big selling point to my son, he talks about wanting the cool red mario ds with the racing wrist strap. Did anyone else have this problem? If you haven't looked yet, you might want to. I emailed Nintendo last night about it and plan on calling them today. I'm a tad bit upset over this as I doubt, even if they send me one, that it'll be here for Christmas.

That's interesting. I haven't opened the one I've bought for Christmas - might have to do that when I get home just to see.

I called Nintendo this afternoon, they are overnighting me the checkered wrist strap. I was not the first person to call about it either. At least I'll have it by Christmas and I can swap it so my son will never know! I urge others to check. I know it's not a big thing to us adults, but to a kid, it is HUGE.

I took my Silver DS back and purchased the Mario Kart DS today, because you got a ultimate spiderman and a gamers kit with it for 149.99. Since you guys have opened yours up, do you know if it comes with the pen? The Silver one shows one on the package.

What's the number for Nintendo? I want to go ahead and order, too.
Thanks you guys. You are so much help.

Mine also came with the plain black wrist strap, but it was no big deal for us. However, I only saw one pen in there, not two :(

The number I called was 1-800-255-3700, you have to go through some button pushing then hit 0 to talk to a real person. You have to specifically ask for overnight shipping, they offer ground, but if explain that you need it by Christmas they should upgrade it for you.
