Nintendo DS seems to be all the rage these days. From Mario Brothers to Zelda, kids are having fun with video games. Recently, my children received the Smart Girls Playhouse and Smart Boy Gameroom for their DS systems. These games are aimed for children ages 3 and up and at first I thought it was too easy, but they absolutely love ’em!
So, I was recently excited to learn that Southpeak Games will introduce the 21st century baby doll with the new My Baby Girl and My Baby Boy series for Nintendo DS. This game is designed to allow children to nurture, engage, and raise their baby at their own pace with their own sensitivities, instincts, and style. It’ll make it a very personal experience each day as the learn a lot about themselves and their virtual baby.
The really cool thing is each player can personalize the look of their child. They begin by choosing a name, ethnicity and eye-color for their baby. From baby’s first smile, to her first steps players learn how to help their baby grow physically and emotionally. Along the way, players get help from a pediatrician who offers advice on caring for the baby. From how to change a diaper to how to hold a bottle, children learn all the ways they can keep their baby healthy and grow. As the baby meets certain developmental milestones, new age appropriate activities get unlocked.
My Baby Girl and My Baby Boy are suitable for children ages three years and older and will be available starting November 10, 2008. We got a sneak peek at the game by visiting MyBabyVillage.com and you can too. Go check it out and tell me what you think! My daughter was thrilled to change a baby’s diaper and here the coos after she completed the task. This will be a must on our Christmas List.
