When you’re shopping for gaming systems, you want to find the best gaming console for your kids. Whether your kids are younger and this is their first console or you have teens who are seasoned pros, we found gaming systems that’ll suit them. We found one that you can take on trains, planes and automobiles.
If you’re the type of person who prefers to get not the latest gaming system, but the version before that, then you will definitely find what you’re looking for on our list. Xbox is launching two new consoles, Xbox Series X and Xbox S Series, on November 10, just in time for the holiday season. The Series S is supposed to be their smallest yet. Meanwhile, Playstation is releasing the much-awaited Playstation 5 on November 12, with a digital edition and a PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive.
But until then, you can browse models currently available from these two brands. We’ve also included a popular pick that both adults and kids love. Everything you need is included in this console sets, including the necessary controllers and plug-in sets. All you need to get is the games, a few extra controllers and some noise-canceling headphones (so you don’t have to hear sounds from the games constantly).

1. Nintendo Switch – Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition
The Switch has swept the nation with its adaptable design. The ability to connect the console to the TV or to play it hand-held with multiple players makes this gaming system the most adaptable. Just keep in mind that this Switch is Animal Crossing-themed with the pastel green and blue controllers, but this Switch doesn’t actually include the game itself. You’ll need to purchase that separately.
2. Xbox One S 1TB Console
You’ll be able to access and play more than 2,200 games on this Xbox, which means your kids will never get bored. But don’t worry, you can also limit how long your kids will play it for. You can also use it to stream Netflix, Amazon and your other streaming services. This Xbox comes with a console, a wireless controller, an HDMI cable, AC Power cable, one-month Xbox Game Pass trial and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial.
3. PlayStation 4 1TB Console with The Last of Us Remastered Game Bundle
Instead of buying a brand new PlayStation 4, you can get a mostly new one. It’s been inspected and tested by Amazon-qualified suppliers. With this set, you get the console, one dual-shock controller and the game The Last of Us, which is meant for older teens. Your kids will love challenging their friends in real-time and share when they have a big victory.
