Broken doesn't stand a chance.
Use a small plastic opening tool to begin separating the colored front cover from the white rear cover of the device. With one hand on the front cover and one hand on the rear cover, start from the bottom of the device and begin pulling the pieces apart. The most stubborn tabs holding the front and rear together are along the top edge of the tablet around the game cartridge slot. This will most likely be the last area that separates, and it may require a moderate amount of force.
