In New York, get your kids to go where you want—the opera, art museums—by trading them a visit to the tech mecca Nintendo World (10 Rockefeller Plaza; 646/459-0800; www.nintendoworldstore.com). At the company's ultramodern new flagship store, gamers test the latest products for free. Have a seat in the surround-sound rumble chairs and take a shot at GameCube titles like the bongo drum– controlled Donkey Konga. Gather around the retro circular coffee table to send hand-drawn messages wirelessly. Or just grab a stool at the Game Boy bar and order up thrills from an ever-changing game menu. —HILLARY GERONEMUS
