My daughter loved this app. She kept saying mommy I get to change his daughter. Being a special needs momma (( daughter is autistic )) this makes me happy.

Playing with these super cute, highly responsive virtual babies can be fun and satisfying and offers both pros and cons over real-life pretend play. As is usually the case with Sago Sago apps, graphics are simplistic but appealing, and play is easy and open-ended. The activity types are right on for presenting realistic ways that caregivers -- and kids pretending to be caregivers -- interact with babies. As opposed to the passive baby dolls that slump over and take whatever kids throw at them, these babies make their preferences and needs known, and kids can practice reading those needs and acting accordingly. Yet when kids play with real baby dolls, there are infinite possibilities, and they're in charge; in the app, many things are scripted for them. Also, without a physical doll to hug, there's no coverage of that all-important basic need for love and affection between baby and caregiver. Still, Sago Mini Babies wins points for responsiveness and overall appeal and adds fun elements to pretend play.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
