I was really excited to review this wonderful App called iMommy. I remember how my daughter would play pretend with her dolls and of course whatever game I could find for her Nintendo DS, that would have her take care of babies. Well this App iMommy, is an interactive app for kids ages 2-10 that allows you to personalize a baby and then take care of it. See how perfect that is! Using iMommy you get to choose the baby’s hair color, eye color, outfit and skin color. You then have to take care of the baby by feeding it, changing its diapers, bathing it and more.
The user can then choose clothes for the baby before starting off to play the game, which involves nine different “rooms” where baby-care takes place. Various photos/activity scenes rotate across the screen; to play your little one will need to tap on the image they like. You can just tap on the pictures of the items that you want to use for the baby and drag it over and release.
It is a fun, interactive, educational app. This app could serve as a good introduction to caring for something. Certain things in each scene make the baby happy or sad, and the player must determine what is necessary to please the baby. It would definitely teach them the responsibility that goes into caring for a baby. This game is ideal for kids ages 2-10 but of course all ages can play.
iTunes rated iMommy the TOP 100 app in the family category!
Kathy Shimmield is the creator of iMommy. She developed this game with her children in mind. Her two youngest kids were especially interested in playing ‘Mom’ and it occurred to her that such a universal game as ‘pretend’ parental play, would translate into a great app. After searching the app store, she was surprised to find no apps that addressed this type of imaginative play for young children. After many months of research and determination, iMommy was born!
iMommy is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
