Every little girl I know has an adorable baby doll they carry with them wherever they go. Some have little strollers, others pacifiers and bottles and each is gingerly taken care of by their "mommies". Growing up I had a baby doll of my own and I loved that little baby. I had quite a few accessories including different outfits, bottles, doll diapers, and even a stroller and bassinet for my "little girl" and absolutely loved taking care of her. My love for baby dolls peaked my interest in babysitting and when I became old enough I started watching the little girl next door to my parent's house.
With help from my friends at Ubisoft, I can now "babysit" right from the comfort of my living room couch with their new Imagine game for the Nintendo 3DS - Imagine: Babyz!

While this game is technically for young girls, there is something about games like this that I absolutely enjoy. One of the very first things I noticed was the fact that I was able to go all over the world to babysit some of the most adorable, virtual babies I've ever seen! This game is more interactive than any game I've played in the past. Besides using the stylus to change the baby's diaper, feed, play and even purchase clothing for the babies, you can also talk to the baby through the microphone on the console itself and it even has a facial recognition feature so the baby recognized me! By the time I had babysat a number of babies from all around the world I had the opportunity to open my own daycare which seemed quite a bit more work and concentration than before. This game really provides young girls with a chance to learn some of what it takes to be a great babysitter all while caring for adorable, virtual babies in the comfort of their own homes. Each baby has a different personality and ability and you'll be able to follow the development of the babies through 6 months up until 18 months! Bond and care for some of the most cutest babies around!
You're able to play this game in both 2D and 3D though I prefer the 3D mode and it just makes everything really come to life! I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game and plan on showing this to all of the little girls I know. I highly recommend this game to anyone that has a little girl that loves to play with baby dolls or anyone that is a little girl at heart. It's a very enjoyable game perfect for girls of any age.
