Nintendo DS Game Review: Zhu Zhu Babies (& US/CAN Giveaway Ends 1/13)

Zhu Zhu Babies

Developer: ActiVision

Released: November 1, 2011


Help ten baby animals find their friend Razzmataz in this mini-game collection and pet rearing game for Nintendo DS. ZhuZhu Babies has you traveling to various cities around the world in an attempt to locate Razzmataz, but before you can advance, you’ll need to complete a series of hands-on activities. You’ll also raise and nurture the babies in between games by attending to their grooming, feeding, and recreational needs at various times of day.

  • Complete an assortment of mini-games in cities around the world
  • Help the ZhuZhu babies find their lost friend
  • Care for each baby by giving it food, brushing its hair, and more

My boys love their Zhu Zhu pets and as new Nintendo DS players, I knew Zhu Zhu Babies would be a cute game for them.  It is a game where you can play with 11 different Zhu Zhu Babies that have gotten lost in mazes.  The levels get harder  and my boys did need help but it is still a fun game and with time I think they will catch on faster.  I like it because it starts out easy and gets more challenging.  You do have to work your way through the mazes going through obstacles and  picking up objects.  There are over 30 levels to explore each representing a different city.  I used the different cities as lessons to my boys about them.

As you collect all your Zhu Zhu Babies, you can also take care of them by feeding them, exercising them and loving them!  You actually have to take care of them or their meters will turn blue.  My boys like the mazes more than taking care of their pets right now, but then again they are only 3 and 4 years old.  The game involves problem solving and strategy but I think young kids can pick up on it quickly and there is something for different ages.

BUY IT: Look for “Zhu Zhu Babies” for the Nintendo DS online or wherever video games are sold!

WIN IT: (1) US/CAN winner will receive the Nintendo DS game “Zhu Zhu Babies”
