     It's a moment that happens every day, in every country around the world. It's time to feed your baby. Moms and dads, sons and daughters, all share in this mealtime ritual. With the care of baby no longer viewed solely as Mom's Job, little boys and girls share in the bottle feeding. Dads come home from work and volunteer for duty, or even stay at home to handle the children's needs full-time.

     Wicked Cool Toys company has led the Cabbage Patch Kids (CPK) into a whole new world of technical wonderment. Their brand-new Baby So Real combines a Cabbage Patch baby with human-mimicking movement, sounds and urges. A simple touch of the CPK's anatomy and its expression changes into 20 different possibilities. It giggles; it plays peek-a-boo; it falls asleep. The CPK baby interacts with young wannabe moms and dads.

     One of the most distinctive parts of Baby So Real is that it couples hands-on, real-world play with the world of virtual apps. As a boy or girl cares for the CPK baby, the children earn "baby points" for their nurturing abilities. With the free app, they can see how well they are scoring as a caregiver. Plus, there are mini-games for parenting and baby-sitting possibilities.
