Baby and Me Special Edition for the Nintendo Wii has actual doll peripheral
by Mark R
It isn’t unusual that video games come with at least one odd peripheral to make much more realistic gameplay, but this Baby and Me Special Edition has to be one of the most unusual that I have seen.
The particular toy comes with an actual doll that the child straps the Wiimote to. Then the baby doll “reacts by giggling, gurgling or crying through the Wii remote”. From there, I would imagine a child can learn the wonders of being a mother as he or she can feed the baby and put the baby to sleep.
I am assuming that this game will take advantage of the Wiimote’s motion control feature for this. By the way, players can even get the Wii Balance Board (presumably the one from WiiFit) to rock baby to sleep, burp the baby, and teach baby to walk.
By the way, there is eight play mode games that include a rattle, catching, clapping, and playing with balloons. The player can dress the baby with new clothes, accessories, and customize playrooms.
By the way, the non-special edition has a strap so you can just put a Wiimote on any dolly and play the Baby and Me game. There is no word on a price as yet, and the initial release will be in Australia.
