Meh Feb. 23 2010
By Zaharia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The games in here are pretty standard. What makes the book interesting is the language used-reminiscent of an owner's manual for any tech. The actual "Baby owner's manual" is totally worth it with great information in a vocabulary that geeks can understand and might actually read. Don't bother with buying this one, borrow it from the library for a quick laugh and reminder of a few fun games for kids.

Creatively funny and informative! Sept. 22 2011
By Zoey Sheppard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found out about this series of "Baby Owner's" by accident when first buying the Maintenance Log for a friend's baby shower. As a first time dad, who was an agency creative director - he loved it! It's written very cleverly to appeal to a male audience particularly since a lot of baby books tend to be female-skewed. It helps get a first time dad involved and informed about the basics of baby care.

Since then, this has been my favourite baby shower gift for all my first time parent friends.

Good for mechanically, technically minded Oct. 21 2009
By Sarah Kehayias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was creative in the way it was written, but not as informative as I would have liked. I got much more information from the internet sites I found about infants...and by just experiencing things with my son as we went. But it does help those who have never been around babies, especially if they are mechanically or technically minded. Great for laughs and for inside lingo when talking about your "model" (aka baby).

Great Gift for Guys Jan. 7 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a tech writer in electrical engineering and I buy this for every newly-expecting father in my group. It's a decently written tech manual complete with illustrations. It's humorous, but actually gives excellent information. There are other technical "baby manuals" out there, but this is by far my favorite.

I don't own a baby, but I own this book. I am going to be that aunt that knows how to properly operate a baby unit.

As more friends and family around me are getting themselves a baby of their own, I have made this book my go-to present for parents, even veteran parents with a new unit on the way (so spoiler alert, all friends reading this). As the premise of the book suggests, I will be mindful to whom I gift this book, as it does have a bit of a geekery slant to it to be approached with a bit of humor, but I'd like to think most who are friends of me must have that by default.

I originally bought this book as a present for two geek friends who were expecting and had this on their baby registry. I looked through the book before giving it to them. Having studied childhood developmental psychology, and am currently a personal trainer, I find a lot of value in this book, especially in an age of tablets and smartphones. This book is great for providing things baby owners can do with their babies to really help foster their cognitive development as well as their gross and fine motor functions, two things I worry is lacking with many children in this touchscreen age, during a formative time in their lifes. This also provides ideas to spend quality time with baby units, whether you own one yourself, or you're just borrowing for the afternoon. I also really like the age range of this book, going all the way to 3 years, so you get a lot of mileage with it.

I will now come prepared with things to do with them when one is handed off to me, and perhaps in the event I find myself with one of my own.
