Petz Nursery 2 is the sequel to Petz Nursery, which differentiated itself from other pet simulators with its focus on newborn baby animals. It is a great game for young players who want to own a pet but may not yet be able to handle the responsibilities of owning a pet in real life. The variety of animals is a highlight here: You may, for instance, get the chance to care for puppies and penguins side by side. This game also helps reduce the monotony that some pet simulation games have, by letting players care for numerous animals at the same time. It is a sweet-natured game that rewards kids for being great caregivers. And its open-ended nature is nice for young kids who are less interested in scoring points than they are in simply playing with a cute virtual animal.

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.
