This Holiday Wish Guide™ Special Feature is presented in collaboration between The Rock Father™ and Nintendo of America…

Despite the fact that we play games of many kinds here at Rock Father HQ, I’ve always made it very clear that I grew up a Nintendo kid and our girls are very much on that same path. We’ve got the 2DS, 3DS, NES Classic, Super NES Classic, and of course, the Nintendo Switch – a system that continues to surprise. Last year, I featured the Switch in my Holiday Wish Guide, and for 2018 its back again – with the release of Super Smash Bros Ultimate, one of the most-anticipated titles of the year (for any platform. There’s also Nintendo Labo, including the new Vehicle Kits, plus new Pokémon titles including Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!  But that’s far from all. Nintendo eShop Gift Cards make great gifts, and the gamers in your life can pick out their favorite titles from hundreds available, including many “Nindie” games (those from independent publishers). Beyond that, there’s a host of Nintendo toys and collectibles available – including Hallmark‘s all-new Mario Kart Keepsake Ornament and Hasbro’s MONOPOLY Gamer Edition that brings the excitement of Mario Kart to the table. 

One great thing as we enter the home stretch before Christmas is that most of these items are available last-minute this year, so there’s still time to bring some real WOW to your Christmas. I have a few big Nintendo memories from my own youth… the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), Super Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), the Mattel-produced Power Glove and the Nintendo 64 were all Christmas gifts!
