Create Nintendo Accounts for kids to let them earn and redeem their own My Nintendo points.

If you’re a parent or guardian of children ages 12 or younger, you can create and manage separate Nintendo Accounts for them with a Nintendo Account family group.

This lets kids have fun earning and redeeming My Nintendo points on their own accounts, while letting you manage multiple Nintendo Accounts within your family group. Plus, you’ll get notifications at your registered email address any time something is purchased using the child’s account.

Parents, here’s how you can get your child set up:

Nintendo Family Group


Step 1:

Log in to your Nintendo Account at If you don’t yet have one, you need to create an account for yourself first.

Step 2:

Accounts.nintendo Family Group

Select “Family group” from the menu on the left. Select “Add member,” then “Create an account for a child.”

Step 3:

Enter the child’s date of birth.

Step 4:

When you create the first Nintendo Account for a child age 12 or younger, it will require you to provide verifiable parental consent. This is done by processing a one-time $.50 charge using your credit card. Once this charge is processed, you may add accounts for additional children to the family group with no additional verification required. (There can be up to 8 members total in a Nintendo Account family group.)

Step 5:

After the consent process has been completed, you can create additional accounts at any time.

YYour child’s Nintendo Account will appear in the “Family group” area of your account settings. You can adjust settings such as purchase restrictions for Nintendo eShop and for each account.

Remember to share the User ID and password with your child so that he/she can use the account.

Step 6:

You’ll receive an email notification any time a purchase is made on a Nintendo system, the Nintendo website, or via a Nintendo smartphone app using the child account.

A note about family groups:

Keep in mind that you’ll only see the “Add member” option on your Nintendo Account settings page if you are the admin of your family group.

If this option isn’t appearing and you are part of a family group already, check to see who the admin of the group is. The admin will need to either add the new member or transfer the admin rights to you before you can continue. To be an admin, you must be at least 18 years old.
