Some online pregnancy games promote interaction with familiar characters to encourage learning about maternity fashions, check-ups and associated pregnancy terms. Cartoon people and animals offer positive glimpses into the pregnancy experience, as provided by Girl Games and Pregnant-Games.
On the Girl Games website, princesses, mermaids and pets guide children through designing outfits or learning how to use a stethoscope. When a mermaid falls into some coral, the child can take x-rays of the injuries and provide treatments to help her heal.
Pregnant-Games offers category options, such as Doctor, in which each game represents pregnancy, from ultrasounds to multiple births and cesarean births. Barbie, Cinderella and Rapunzel share their experiences with young gamers.
