He actually got me an XL with Zelda two months ago and I really wanted someone to play w/ me. And I found out a friend had a 3ds he never uses so he sold it to me. Only scratches on the outside :D Has screen protector, etc.

I'm worried though since he hasn't used it in years would the batteries be really bad.
Also how should I mess with my boyfriend? I want to mess w/ him with the present like trick him into thinking its something else. Totally suprise him. xD.

3DS only 1.5 years. Anyhow, the battery shouldn't be bad. Just charge it for a while and keep it on till the light is red. Then do the same 2 or 3 times and it should be fine.

Anyhow, fun way to mess with him:

- Big cardboard NES
- Inside a big cardboard SNES
- Inside that a big cardboard N64
- Inside that one a cardboard Gamecube
- Then inside it a cardboard Wii
- Inside the cardboard Wii the 3DS

Build-up for Wii U, instead he gets a 3DS. That should be good for a laugh :P
On the other hand, might lead to a lot of disappointment as well (since he expected a Wii U).

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

LOL. Where do I get those cardboard things?
Hm, I'm not sure if it would be nintnedo themed though. I'm scared he would guess what it is before he opens it. LOL

I dunno where to get those cardboard things, actually. You can probably ask around a few shops or look on the internet to get boxes with the right shape. Or in fact, you could also work with a scissor and tape to make them the right shape.

Gamecube is a bit off an odd fit though (N64 > Gamecube > Wii). So you could start off with the Gamecube (and then NES > SNES > etc). You 'could' paint them if you want, but you could also draw some stuff on it that makes it look like the proper Nintendo console.

That gave me an awesome idea too!

Since the guy gave me a small case with it, I cna't fit the actual 3DS w/ the carrying case in the actualy box. I can wrap two things and have box in a box in a box in a box. And say you can only choose one.

Go buy the box for something super expensive off ebay. Put the wrapped 3DS in there without wrapping the box.
