A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The instructions aren't always terribly clear, but for the most part, kids can figure out what they need to do in different scenarios. Some parts of the game require tilt-controls (rocking baby to sleep and feeding the baby a bottle), and those are sometimes tricky to get the timing right on.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Vague bits of anatomy can be seen during diaper changes. Diaper changes also involve the wiping and removal of brown poop.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that My Little Baby is a childcare simulator that lets kids experience what it's like to tend to a virtual infant. Players get to bathe and feed the baby, rock him to sleep, play with him, and eventually teach him to crawl and walk. They will also need to visit different stores in town to buy supplies (like sunblock and baby shampoo) -- all with virtual money. Be aware that the onscreen babies are anatomically correct, though what you'll see under their diapers is very vague-looking. There are several lessons about childcare here, but the controls may be a bit tough for younger kids to handle at certain points.

Is it any good?

MY LITTLE BABY has moments that young players will adore, such as giving your virtual infant new toys and buying new clothes for him or her. But it's also got moments that feel more like chores than games -- like mopping floors. It's a bit of a mixed bag in general. If your child is really into baby dolls and loves to play mother, she's likely to enjoy the detailed simulation at the heart of this app. But some kids might find it all a bit too slow moving. Some of the more fun elements come when you get to teach your baby to crawl and walk, but you have to wait a long time to even get to those parts. My Little Baby is a decent app, but would actually be better if you were able to skip some parts.
