Synopsis[]

During a stop at the superstore Shoppë, Ben and Gwen are transformed into babies by nanny-gone-nuts Nanny Nightmare, who will stop at nothing to reshape the world in the image of her daycare.[note 1]

Plot[]

The Tennyson trio arrives at the Shoppë furniture store, they plan to redecorate the Rustbucket. Ben and Gwen runs to go get a snack, but they find a baby on top of a stack of boxes. Ben turns into XLR8 before he falls and hurts himself. While Max shops for pillows he walks past a bunch of babies. He finds Ben and Gwen fighting over a snack. He takes them to a daycare, where they meet Nanny Nightmare. Max leaves telling Ben not to pull any alien business.

Nanny Nightmare sits Ben and Gwen in a chair which ends up trapping them. Nanny Nightmare tells them a story on how she was a young biochemist, who was let down by her piers. She created a powder that turned people into a younger version of themselves. She plans to transform everyone, and retrain everyone. Gwen asks why she is working in a baby sitting room. Nanny Nightmare tells her that she's building a super weapon that can shoot her baby powder evenly across the city. A guy walks in questioning why Ben and Gwen are chained up, but she transforms him into a baby. She then transforms Ben and Gwen into toddlers. Nanny Nightmare summons her henchmen to take Ben and Gwen elsewhere. Ben transforms into Four Arms. They hop into a toy car and rides away. They make it to a ball pit. Four Arms takes down the henchmen. Four Arms throws Gwen up to the roof, and Ben jumps up. Ben reverts back to his human form, making it easier for Gwen to pull him up.

They arrive at the top only to see Nanny Nightmare as well. Ben transforms into Upgrade and tries to reverse the machine. Green dust shoots out and ages everyone. The dust turns Gwen and Upgrade back to normal, and Nanny Nightmare even older. The cops arrest Nanny Nightmare and her henchmen. Gwen and Ben wonders what happened to Max. They run inside the store to find him. They assume that he was turned into dust, but Max exits a tent, protected from the dust.

Allusions[]

  • The Shoppë is a parody of the real life IKEA stores. Both are large furniture stores with a Swedish sounding name. Kiddy Land is a parody of Småland, the small play area they have inside the IKEA stores. In some scenes, you can see a small café and a warehouse area, something that most IKEA stores have.
    • Kiddy Land also shares the same name with a popular toy store in Japan's Harajuku district, and a indoor playground in Brampton, Ontario.

Errors[]

  • In the scene where the baby security officer crawls by, Max incorrectly refers to the baby as a male.
  • In multiple scenes, Four Arms didn't have the black stripe on his back.
  • Before Four Arms tossed Gwen up to the roof, the henchmen were seen with multiple babies on them, despite the fact Four Arms only threw three at them.
