Products & Purchases
There isn't any obvious "must buy" messages in this game, but it introduces kids to the entire range of ZhuZhu babies toys.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that ZhuZhu Babies is a video game that features licensed characters from a line of real toys, but there is no overt marketing. The game is incredibly easy to play, with voice-over instructions making it suitable for young children. It features both virtual pet simulation -- feeding and nurturing -- as well as tube mazes that kids take their pets through.
Is It Any Good?
ZhuZhu Babies features the license's new line of toys, which is composed of the tiniest ZhuZhu animals of all: Babies. Kids play the virtual pet nurturing game, then take their animals through tube-like mazes. With simple controls and voice-over help, even younger kids should be able to handle this game by themselves.
Our only complaint is that the game is very linear. Kids stuck on a certain maze will not be able to try another one. Assuming they don't get stuck, there are enough levels here to keep kids who enjoy ZhuZhu toys playing for a long, long while.
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.
