Market research and consulting firm Smarty Pants has revealed  the brands that kids and early teenagers love the most in its Most Loved Brands.

Nintendo's Wii and DS top the 2009 list of brands that kids have shown a thumbs up to.

Kids participate in more than $500 billion in consumer spending every year. Parents consider their preferences in categories ranging from school supplies to desserts to family entertainment.

''From Crayola to iPod, kids' most loved brands are familiar, iconic brands that delight kids and parents with variety, value, family-friendly content and simple pleasures,'' explains Smarty Pants president, Wynne Tyree.
