Little Games

Admit it already. As much as you love your little bundle of joy, babies don’t do very much. Cuddle, change, feed, sleep and repeat gets old, doesn’t it?

We’re not saying you should ignore your basic responsibilities as a caregiver, but you should find ways to stimulate your mind and try new things with your child. To that end, Nintendo has released Sukusuku Parenting DS , which has 176 games you can play with your baby. The only drawback is that its in Japanese—but it does have illustrations that are fairly universal and there is a database of kids songs that you can sing!
