Wii Party


2-4 players


"Calm down your crying baby by rocking it in rhythm with the beating heart. That'll bring a smile to its face."

Cry Babies is a 4-player minigame in Wii Party. Its name is a common saying "cry baby" meaning someone who is weak or often crying or distressed.


All of the players' babies start to cry after a few seconds of looking sad, making the players shocked and sad.


The goal of this game is to make the baby happy. To do this, you have to rock the Wii Remote in sync with the beat of the heart on the bottom of each player's screen. The player who gets their baby happy first wins.

If the player misses the beat, the baby will cry some more, leaving them unable to do anything for about 2 seconds.

If the player syncs with the beat, the baby will turn happy and music notes will come out. By some time, the screen gets closer every time you do a certain number of beats.

If the player successfully gets the baby to calm down, the player will show the happy baby on-screen toward the player. Flowers will come out, and the player will smile. The heart will also disappear.


  • The Miis stand in different spots, shown in the picture on the infobox. See how in Midori's screen, the yellow crib is fully visible, while in Pierre's screen, it doesn't even appear.
  • The babies are actually some of the CPU Miis, those being Chika, Haru, Sarah, Mia, Anna, Barbara, Tomoko, Holly, Susana, Theo, and Stéphanie, because they don’t have any facial features or wear any facial accessories, Chika being the only exception.
    • Theo is the only male CPU Mii to be a baby in the minigame.
    • Stéphanie is the only Master CPU Mii to be a baby in the minigame.
    • Holly is the only Advanced CPU Mii to be a baby in the minigame.
    • Although Greg, Shinta, Emma, and Sandra also have no facial traits, none of the four appear as babies in the minigame.
  • The name is a pun on the term "crybaby", describing someone who cries a lot.
  • There is a glitch where the player Mii will be smiling while the baby Mii is crying.

    Yoshi is smiling, but baby Holly is still crying

  • The default time for the minigame is 5 minutes; the timer only shows up during the last 10 seconds.
  • When set to 16:9 ratio, the player can see out of bounds on the results screen.
