Check out the latest game for the ever popular Nintendo DS, MY BABY BOY and MY BABY GIRL. These games are not only great for younger kids into pretend play, they are also great for teens to introduce them to the work involved in raising a baby.

As you are aware, the choices children make during their play time can have significant developmental benefits. Pretend play with dolls is known to improve a variety of early skills including language, communication, problem solving, social and motor skills. Next month, SouthPeak Games will introduce the 21st century baby doll with the new My Baby Girl and My Baby Boy series for Nintendo DS. The new baby doll is designed to allow children to nurture, engage and raise their baby at their own pace with their own sensitivities, instincts and style. How they raise and relate to their baby will be their very own personal experience.Players begin by choosing a name, ethnicity and eye-color for their baby. From baby's first smile, to her first steps players learn how to help their baby grow physically and emotionally. Along the way, players get help from a pediatrician who offers advice on caring for the baby. From how to change a diaper to how to hold a bottle, children learn all the ways they can keep their baby healthy and grow. As the baby meets certain developmental milestones, new age appropriate activities get unlocked. My Baby Girl and My Baby Boy are suitable for children ages three years and older and will be available starting November 10, 2008. (Beyond Pr)
