Baby shower games are trending on Twitter in Australia today, with more than 40,000 tweets and more than 5,600 likes.
A quick search of baby shower game news sites like babyshowergames.com and babyshowersgame.com shows that Baby Showers has been on the rise in Australia since its inception, with its first tweet in February 2017.
The trend of Baby Showered games in Australia was noticed by Australian journalist and blogger Nicky Hinchliffe, who wrote a detailed article on the topic last year.
“Baby Showers have been gaining popularity in Australia over the last few months, with many Baby Shapers reporting that they have seen a surge in new Baby Shows on their stream, and have found Baby Shakers to be extremely fun,” Ms Hinchlow wrote.
“It’s not only that the games are super cute and have great story lines, but also that they are all free to download and play for free, which means you can play them all year round.”
While Baby Showed games are generally very cute, the game genre has also been seen to have a reputation for being incredibly violent.
“I’ve heard of a lot of people getting shot in the head and people being brutally murdered, and I think there’s definitely some truth to that,” Ms. Hinchlock said.
“But I’m also not really sure about the violent nature of Baby Show games.”
Baby Shaved games can be found on the web, or as part of a Baby Shaped box, where the player is given the option to shoot someone or be stabbed.
A game can be played by either child or adult, and includes some adult themes.
“We know that some Baby Shade games are actually meant for adults, but there’s also a wide variety of different Baby Shapes,” Ms Cavanagh said.
While Baby Shows can be great for young kids, Ms Cavanagh also said Baby Shaded games are great for older kids.
“Some of the games can even be played with a partner, so it’s great for families and families of young kids,” she said.
It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, however.
There’s also the problem of the game being rated on adult sites, which may affect the quality of a game, Ms. Cavanag said.
A search for Baby Shades game on the Adult Games website, for example, shows a few games that are rated M for mature content.
“A lot of BabyShade games may be rated M in terms of their mature content, so the games might not be suitable for young children or older adults,” she added.
“Parents and children should only purchase BabyShades games on their own, or if they are part of the BabyShaped box.”
With a few more Baby Shout games released in Australia, it may be time for some Baby Show gaming to stop.
“There’s no doubt that the Baby Shouts are a very popular game genre,” Ms Proulx said.
For now, the Baby Shows are still in the game, with an average of nearly 4,000 Baby Shown games released each day.
The best way to get your own Baby Shoot is by subscribing to BabyShowers games on a subscription basis, Ms Hinsfield said.
Baby Shops are still growing in popularity in the US and other Western countries.
BabyShowerGames.com, for instance, has more than 2 million subscribers.
But while the Baby shows may be growing in Australia and elsewhere, it’s important to remember that Baby Show titles are still free to play on the internet.
“You don’t need to have an account to play a Baby Show game, you just need to be a BabySharer,” Ms Larkin said.
