Are your instincts maternal or technological? If you have a blend of both, there are virtual babies for sale. UBI Soft's Nintendo DS game Imagine Babyz ($23) offers gamers a chance to care for a child for the price of one pack of diapers. Players have to deal with the infants through developmental stages. The product's description boasts these features:
- As a babysitter, take care of up to six babies. Feed them, play with them, take them for walks in the garden, and keep them healthy.
- Spend the money that you have earned on items for the baby like outfits, toys and food, or on new furniture for your house.
- Customize and clean your house with mini-games: vacuum, paint the walls, mow the grass, and more.
Would you use this item to put your motherly skills to the test?
