Out to prove that her talents extend well beyond cooking and gardening, Mama is taking on arts and crafts with a new game headed to Nintendo DS this fall. Majesco's Crafting Mama will have the minigame matron jumping into 40 different crafts projects as she puts away her wooden spoon and spade for scissors and a bottle of glue.

Mama will help players sew, mold, glue, cut, and paint a wide range of crafts: patchwork quilts, earrings, candles, birdhouses, and even mini-Mama dolls. Players can use their creations within the game, too, dressing up mama in a handmade apron or flying a folded paper airplane. Crafting Mama will also feature multiplayer support to allow gamers to make crafts together.

"Crafting is a natural extension of our most successful franchise," says Majesco CEO Jesse Sutton. "Much like last spring's Gardening Mama, Crafting Mama combines the award-winning Mama formula of addictive stylus-based activities with a popular pastime that has been underserved in videogames. We're looking forward to sharing Mama's newest hobby with her vast and diverse group of fans this holiday season."
