|Plot||We open our picture showing a little child's mother cooking the dinner, and a big pot of soup boiling on the stove. The little one, who is just about four years old, is watching her intently, and at the same time bothering her. The baby does not want to remain on the chair, but insists on getting down and pulling her mother's apron strings. The mother seasons the soup, using salt and pepper, which she takes from the stand, and in leaving the room makes a mistake in not taking the little one with her, for the moment baby sees mamma is gone she goes over to the stand, intent on putting something into the soup, but she does not get salt or pepper; she grabs the Tabasco sauce bottle and empties the contents into the pot. The next scene shows the family at dinner. Imagine the result when the soup is served. The baby is not finished yet. She goes upstairs to papa's room. He is dressing and has just one shoe on, and baby seeing the other one, takes it downstairs and gives it to "Rags," the dog. The shoe is ruined, and papa rushes down, seizes his little darling and carries her back upstairs. Baby next wanders into mamma's room and picking up her mother's hat, gives it to the dog, who immediately proceeds to make rags of it. Mamma comes rushing into the room, and finding the dog tearing up her hat, takes it from him with much lamentation. We now find the little one outside of her sister's room, playing with the door key, and she accidentally locks sister in. Sister is ready to go down into the parlor to meet her beau, who has been waiting for some time and trying to open the door, finds she is locked in. She shakes the door violently, but can arouse no one. Finally she has to break down the door, and finds the baby on the other side, sitting contentedly, holding the key in her mouth. Baby next goes into the library, and seeing the phone, takes down the receiver, and, of course, Central at once asks "What number?" The Central girl is seen at the switchboard, calling "Number, please," and is very angry, while at the other end baby is knocking the receiver against the radiator. The baby now wanders into the room of the nurse, who is sewing her new dress. The child gets under the machine, and when the nurse goes out baby begins working the pedal, sewing the dress in all directions. Nurse comes running in, takes the baby and ties her to the bed, then proceeds with her work; but "Rags," not being content that his little friend is tied, chews the rope apart, and baby is again free. We now find the child in the bathroom, playing with the faucets. She turns them on and the tub overflows, and papa, who is downstairs taking a nap, is awakened by the water dripping from the ceiling. Running upstairs, he seizes the little one, takes her to her room and puts her to bed.... search for Babies Will Play on IMDb|
