Can children under age 13 participate in My Nintendo?

A Nintendo Account is required to start using My Nintendo. As stated in the Nintendo Account Agreement, children under age 13 cannot create their own Nintendo Account. However, a Nintendo Account for a child under 13 (and up to age 17) can be created by a parent / guardian by adding it through the parent / guardian’s Nintendo Account. Once the Nintendo Account has been created for a child, he or she can participate in My Nintendo.
