Lucas Thomas of IGN writes:
"That's really the word for Baby Pals – disturbing. And creepy. And inappropriate. This is a game that succeeds in presenting a fair representation of taking care of young children, interpreted as DS touch screen mini-games. But it doesn't succeed at being a welcoming, inviting experience – instead, its "realistic" babies seem eerily lifeless and, even worse, it contains incredibly odd displays of child nudity that are questionable at best. If that sort of thing doesn't bother you or doesn't seem inappropriate for your kids, then take a look. But I'd really recommend passing this one by, and I'd hope that the developers of this one would think twice about including elements like that again in any potential future follow-up."
