Was the 2DS made for kids?

The joystick thing is to small. Is the one on the 3DS XL bigger? To bad Amazon doesn't sell the Old 3DS XL. Ahh well, got to wait till Friday, to see if the game I ordered really is crappy on the old hardware.

Also I'm already stuck in Zelda. I was able to buy a shield, but they don't sell swords, so I can't go to the tree.
