Weird, but clever!

This is my first time trying out interactive content. It was weird, but it was fun that I didn’t have to just watch and instead could make my own choices of how the story went. I would recommend this and the concept as a whole to families who want even more entertainment than just watching something. It is a way to get adults involved in something, too, since the audience is usually asked questions in kids shows. It is super cool!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Young fans of the feature-length film and the Netflix follow-up series will enjoy this special that lets them have a hand in the story's direction and draws them into the action personally. Step outside of this demographic, though, and Get That Baby!'s appeal is pretty lackluster. It assumes you're already familiar with the characters and their previous encounters and that you know the basics of Baby Corp's operations. Try to jump into the story without that background, and the experience feels kind of like a series of only slightly related happenings and murky chronology.

The Boss Baby: Get That Baby! is simple enough even for young kids to control. As decision points in the story arise, icons on the bottom of the screen (usually two or three) indicate the viewer's choices. If time passes without a selection, the story proceeds with a default pick. Viewers also can return to previous decision points to change their choices, and when the episode concludes, they're given the opportunity to start over entirely. As Staci reminds them several times, there are 16 possible outcomes, which invites numerous rounds of watching and selecting.
