I love buying handmade presents for my loved ones – which isn’t always easy if you have sons that are not babies or toddlers anymore. My eldest son got an Nintendo 3DS for his birthday in February, and we soon discovered that it would be useful to have a case for it. Ha! Handmade opportunity! On Etsy I found Kickass Cases, a shop that sells awesome DS, PSP and Kindle cases. Seller Ki and his girlfriend live in Christchurch, New Zealand, and started their shop after losing their jobs following the devastating earthquake in February 2011. They did find new jobs eventually but the shop had become so popular that they continued to run it.
My son loves his case and it is sturdy and well made; so when my youngest son got a DS on his birthday last month, I of course bought another Kickass Case! (he loves Luigi)
His brother (yes, I have three sons) will get one on his birthday, three weeks from now! Better make sure he doesn’t see this blog before then… 😉
