What will your baby look like? Take a look into the future! BABYFACE™ will create a full-face cartoon-like drawing of your baby's face! While you listen to a beautiful lullaby, enter 21 facial traits from each parent (eye and hair color, skin tone, curly hair or straight...even freckles or dimples). BABYFACE then uses Mendel's scientific theory of dominant/recessive trait inheritance to automatically determine your baby's most-likely facial traits, and shows you which parent will give your baby each trait. This amazing app then creates a truly unique full-color cartoon-like drawing of your baby that you can easily share with your family and friends via social media (Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail). Whether you are pregnant now, thinking about it for down the road, or just imagining a world of possibilities...BABYFACE is flat-out fun for everyone!

For expecting parents: Heightening the joy of anticipation during pregnancy. For parents/grandparents/friends: Sharing a full-color drawing of the prediction of the baby's appearance via social media. For everyone: Experiencing the fun and fascination of seeing genetic trait theory in action.

Platforms this app runs on: iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, iPod touch)
