Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

There are 20 houses for Stacy to visit, with more than 100 levels in total, meaning that you certainly get your money's worth with Babysitting Mania in terms of length. What's more, each house has a different layout and size, and on top of the regular levels, there are also special Birthday Party levels where Stacy has to supervise a whole herd of children. She can also give children a "time out," by clicking on them so that they'll sit down and won't move for a few precious seconds.

Babysitting Mania's biggest flaw is that it can get very repetitive. Once you've zeroed in on the correct strategy to use, it's quite easy to get a Perfect score consistently, and the levels can start to become a rather dull grind. The game still has its moments though, especially if you have a soft spot for kids and all of the mischief they like to cause.

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.
