BABYSITTING MAMA

505 Games
Wii

Damn, Mama! Do you ever sleep?! All that cooking, gardening, craftening and now babysitting – babe, you’re a dynamo!

Straight from Planet Freaky Peripherals comes this latest game featuring PETA’s favourite meat-scorcher. We love a wonderfully bizarre peripheral, and this time we have one that can love us back – a fuzzy widdle baby-waby! Just jam a Wiimote down its back and away you go! (Cue best Wiimote speaker use ever – gurglegurgleWAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!)

Prepare for many exclamation marks (!) as this just inspires them! From trippy Mama day-glo gingham rainbowness that makes M&Ms look monotone to the alarmingly vast array of minigames, Babysitting Mama is a ‘WTF?!’ of the highest order! Well, for adults...

So, we regressed to childhood mode and had an absolute blast looking after our darling fuzzy-tot! The games involve most any toddler-friendly chore you can name, from burping to nappy changing and feeding to distracting with noisy things, along with more bizarre challenges like bug swatting and, we kid not, Mr Hankie coming out for ‘Hankie tug!’. Then there are interludes where Mama deals with typical household emergencies – overflowing baths, hunka-hunka burnin’ meat patties and the like!

There’s never a dull moment! Well, unless you find basic minigames dull, which most little girls – the obviously-obvious audience for Babysitting Mama (although we reckon it would totally kick baby bottom at the next baby shower after a chardy or five) – won’t! They’ll adore this, and stuff the naysayers like Germaine Greer who’d likely whine about reinforcing stereotypes and whatnot! Little girls see Mummy looking after baby and want to be like her – simple!

With more positive reinforcement than a truckload of Dr Phils and oodles of wonderfully batty cheesy-Japanesey (our fave being Mama’s fiery-eyed, crazy arms explosion), Babysitting Mama knows its audience and pampers them!

take me back to the start...
