Some kids love playing the role of “mommy”. They love to take care of their baby dolls and stuffed animals, just like moms take care of their babies. With iMommy: Care, Play, & Dress Up Virtual Baby Game, kids get the opportunity to take on the role of a mommy in a virtual world. Despite this app’s very low quality and in-app purchases, it offers a surprisingly high entertainment value for kids.
- Customize your baby
- Feed your baby
- Play with your baby
- Give your baby a bath
- Earn baby bucks
While entertaining, the severe quality issues in this app are evident from the very beginning. Kids can customize their baby’s hair, eyes, and outfit with a selection of basic color splotches and outfit designs that are off-center and seem to have been just slapped on top of the image of the baby. The quality issues continue in the games. Kids can vacuum up the same black clouds of dirt and earn one baby buck, which is displayed through a pop-up box that lacks appropriate capitalization and punctuation. While most of the games are fairly intuitive, it is difficult to pick up objects on a few of them. For example, the picnic game seems to freeze up and makes it difficult to feed the baby or interact with many of the other elements on the screen.
This app is not being rated for education.
It doesn’t take much to entertain kids and iMommy has what it takes. Kids will enjoy customizing their baby, taking care of baby, and playing with baby in a variety of scenarios. They’ll also enjoy earning baby bucks for completing tasks such as giving baby a bath, changing baby’s diaper, and vacuuming. Those baby bucks can be used to customize the baby even more. Want a baby with orange hair? Purple eyes? A dog on its onesie? It’s possible with this app. The app also comes with a few coloring pages for kids.
If you’re looking for a quick way to entertain your kids and this app happens to be free, it may be worth a download. The app allows users to purchase additional baby bucks, but they come at a ridiculously high price, especially considering the low quality of many of the features they can be used to purchase.
The app offers kids a chance to pretend to be “mom” and take care of baby in a safe environment. There are in-app purchases in the form of baby bucks, but these are protected by a parental lock.
