Urban Legends

Baby Blue

Blue Baby Blue is an urban legend about a strange game that kids play in bathrooms. If you perform the ritual, they say an evil ghostly infant will appear in your arms. This urban legend is related to the myth of Bloody Mary.

Baby Blue

To play “Blue Baby Blue”, you have to go into the bathroom on your own, turn off the lights and lock the door. Then you stare into the mirror, hold out your arms like you are rocking a baby and repeat the words “Baby Blue, Blue Baby” 13 times without making a mistake.

If you do it right, you will suddenly feel the weight of an invisible baby in your arms. The baby will get heavier and heavier as it grows larger and larger. You will feel it scratching your arms.

Before it gets too heavy, you have to quickly take the invisible baby, flush it down the toilet and run out of the bathroom. If you don’t do it fast enough, a hideous woman will appear in the mirror. She will yell “Give me back my baby!” and scream loud enough to break glass. If you are still holding the baby, she will kill you.

Some people believe the woman is Bloody Mary and she murdered her own child when she shattered a mirror and used a piece of broken glass to stab him to death.

According to the urban legend, a group of girls found out about the blue baby story and decided to try it out. They didn’t believe it would work, so they sent their friend Laura into the bathroom on her own. She turned the lights off and closed the door behind her. Laura put out her arms and started chanting the phrase “Blue Baby, Baby Blue”.

All of a sudden, a baby appeared in her arms and began scratching her. Laura was scared out of her wits and had no idea what to do. She wanted to drop it and run, but she was afraid of what might happen. She just stood there holding the invisible baby as it grew heavier and heavier. Suddenly, she caught sight of something horrible in the bathroom mirror and screamed in terror.

When Laura’s friends heard her screaming, they tried to open the bathroom door, but it was locked. Finally, they managed to run to a friends’s house to get help. When they broke open the door, they found Laura lying dead on the bathroom floor. Her eyes had been scratched out. They couldn’t move her body because something large and invisible was pinning her to the ground.


  • I played Baby Blue a year ago. I did everything corectly and I actually felt like I was holding something and it was getting heavier and heavier… I was soooo exscited and I didn’t want to flush it away because I wanted to see the mother!! I waited for a few minuter but she never appeared… So I flushed the baby away… I guess it didn’t really work, but still I’m totally doing a round two!!

  • some times when ppl are scared of something your mind just tricks you into hearing stuff or seeing stuff and that makes you scared so just face ur fear :p

  • When I was like 8 years old I was at my friends house and his brother went upstairs to the bathroom and stood in front of the mirror and did Bloody Mary and she scratched him up and literally dragged him down the stairs and I ran down the stairs as fast as I could and started crying…I will never forget this moment… that was the first time I ever herd of Bloody Mary

  • Some people believe that the mother of Baby Blue was Bloody Mary, but I think it’s just a myth. One of my friends claimed that she did Baby Blue for two hours on her birthday (I’d be bored after 10 minutes) and she saw the mother and the mother aparrently killed her hamster that night.

  • Well then that is kind of scary. When I first heard of Blue Baby I was so scared XD but that was years ago in the first grade it was all over school

  • Read THIS if you wanna know how to summon Bloody Mary and Candyman together:

    1) Turn off the lights in the bathroom and go in. Make sure you have some type of crucifix with you. Hold on to it tightly.

    2) Face the bathroom mirror. Spin around 1 time and say “Bloody Mary and Candyman are kissing under a tree” 13 times. Then spin 1 time again.

    3) This time when you finish your spin and face the mirror, you will see Bloody Mary and Candyman in the mirror, staring at you angrily.

    4) Now you must exit the bathroom in 30 seconds if you want to live. Once you’re out of the bathroom you can leave the crucifix.

    BTW, Don’t actually try this ritual. I was just kidding, lol.

  • OMG I never ever heard of this blue baby blue sounds scary and fun I will try it with my friends

  • If you ask me, Baby Blue is not as scary as Bloody Mary but there! You’ve got it! Just 7 more murders caused by Baby Blue and he would be as scary as Bloody Mary! GO BABY BLUE! GO!

  • I tried this but I couldn’t get the tongue-twister right so i got my brother to go in the bathroom and locked the door from the outside then passed a note under the door telling him to say this 13 times and then my friend turned off the power so the lights were off and then i heard a very loud scratch and then a girl’s high pitched scream. I tried unlocking the door but it wouldn’t open so i gave up… we called the cops and there was no way they could get in. The door is still locked today and it smells like a dead body is in there…

  • Who would ever try this sh#t? (Excuse my language). It’s interesting, and I want to try it, but there is NO WAY I’m trying this! As scary as it seems, I might as well just get an actual baby and rock it. Kids creep me out, soo…Idk 😐😐😐

  • Does this actually work cause too afraid to try. Might not flush it down the toilet in time. I DONT WANNA DIE

  • i tried this. i thought it didn’t work. so i tried this at my school. my friend went first. she didn’t do it fast enough. when i called he name she didnt answer. the door was looked i couldnt get in. i got the teacher to call the janitor. he opened the door. there was nothing there. two days later i went to the bathroom. there was blood on the floor. i thought someone was pranking me. in the mirror i saw her. she couldnt talk. there was tape on her face with bloody mary. she wrote help me. an hour later i was checking my hair (in a different bathroom) i saw my friend. she had no eyes and was red this time. she wrote your next. but nothing happened. then the next day she mistaked my twin sister as me and my sister kicked the mirror in the bathroom then we never saw them again.

  • I love this story.It’s awesome.I wanna ry it to.But how will we know it actually works?I think that that’s not like flushing a real baby.It’s just a ghost if this actually works bu the story is still awesome though.I so wan’t to ry this if it works XD

  • so my best friend and I were playing this game and we taped them every time our arms got heavy my i phone camera turned off and my phone turned off so we quickly flushed the babies down the toilet and ran out of the bathroom as fast as we can we watched the footage and our hands we no where near my phone and this was at least at 12 o’clock at night so my best friend and I were about to go to bed the power went off and we tried it again same thing my iPhone turned off and stopped….

  • Man I use to hear that story a lot when I was young I’m 22now an it change so much it even scaryer then ever now

  • Omg, me and my frend did this when i was little and and she fainted, and I had to drag her out of the bathroom she still has the scares and is going to a tharipist. And I’m still scared to go to the bathroom at night. That was 4 years ago and I still get asked about the scars on my arms. Don’t do this before trying the pencil game… But that’s ano story if you want to read it read the comments on the pencil game.

  • @loveemanimals I did!!
    @pyschadelicNinja didn’t comment after that comment. This might work. Warning. pyschadelicNinja died from doing this. Who agrees?

  • It is 04:23 in the morning now, and i am so scared!!!!!
    I am even scared to turn on the Music (I’m wearing headphones) beacuse my fantasy ‘plays with me’! I am thinking that if i turn on theMusic I’m gonna hear voices!! Aishhhh!!!!! I hate my fantasy and thinking!! D’:<
    Even thoughi'm really scared I wanna continue reading scary games! I just can't stop reading!

  • OMG about the description, I created a chant that says, Bloody Mary, I killed your baby….Isn’t that a little weird?

  • Guys I recommend you not to try this.We are all happy and fit and sound.What is the profit to disturb our minds?These all are dangerous and I strictly recommend you not to try the bath game!!!!

  • I really want to try this, it seems nice to carry an invisible baby. I must do it right though.

  • I did it once!!! Me and my BFF steph did it in our bathrooms at school. It’s soooo scary 😱 ok so that night after we did it I slept over at Stephs house and in the morning her mom came in and said Can anyone explain this?! And held up a baby doll with blue eyes and one eye is missing the other was halfway open and her mom said I found this at the foot if my bed it really creeped me out so don’t do it again please!!! Then at school steph found a blue pencil in her desk and on the pencil it said DONT and when I came home on my bed I saw a blue dress with blue eyes on them and I took the dress to my mom and she said where did u get that at? And I said idk I was gonna ask u 😳so yeah it was rlly creepy but its gone now 😃

  • me and most of my mates did this (sneakily) in the girls changing room and ran out screeching!! this works!! no joke!! please dont try this it stays with you for a few days :S

  • i did it… i felt it growing in my arms and sending this bursts of pain through my entire body. i was so scared. but i flushed it as soon as i felt it growing. i remember i walked out of the bathroom shaking and just sat there on the sofa while my friends kept on asking what happened. i was like in shock.

  • Stories like this one are why I am TERRIFIED of mirrors in the dark. I oddly love to read about these summoning rituals, but am too scared to ever try them. I never will. I remember hearing about bloody mary for the first time when was was maybe nine or ten in daycare, and the girls I was with asked me if I wanted to go into the bathroom and try it. I was like “No.”

  • kyuki yoshida is right, most of them are real, so don’t be stupid, its not worth it. candyman is the only fake one, it was invented by author clive barker for his novel. but yes, the rest are real.

  • A friend of mine tried this. When he was told to give the woman her baby, he taunted her and said ‘It’s my baby now!’, and he got torn to pieces. :/

  • La La La La
    Love, peace, nothing scary, La La La <3
    Elmo's world, Blue's Clues, nothing scary about this. La La La La La La <3 <3 <3 <3

  • what is with all the creepy bathroom stories…there is a lot i japanese legends (very scary btw make sure u read text at top b4 story)…i am gonna b so jumpy i spent hours last night and 2day reading these scary stories im gonna b soooooooo jumpy

  • do not try it i havnt tried and i never will it may sound fake but u never no..thius story is really creepy just like bloodymary i hear candyman is simuler (i may read it) but i would never try it.IT IS DANGEROUS!!!

  • This site just gives me idea after idea… Lol… Im inviting my friend over for a sleepover right now!

  • me and my best friend tried this at her house a few weeks ago i went first and nothing happened to me, then she tried and nothing hapened to her either so we might have done it wrong, or this game just doesnt work, but im not going to be trying again to find out.

  • dude, there are a lot of games like this (candyman, bloodymary) i even heard of one that instead of a baby, candyman,or bloodymary, it’s the devil! honestly i would NEVER try it. but i heard of a guy how did do it… and he went to the er. he had a stroke. CREEPY!!!!!!! for you who are stupid here is how to find out how to play it. There’s another one on scaryforkids called “devil face” take my advice don’t try it!

  • Lol, I wouldn’t do it. But if I did have the guts to do it i would probably yell at the woman in the mirror for yelling at me… She would be all “GIVE ME BACK MY BABY!! ” and I’d be like “IT’S NOT YOURS ANYMORE IT’S MINE. AND I ALMOST HAD IT ASLEEP!! LOOK WHAT YOU DID!!” lol XD

  • i thoought baby blue would actually be blue I am gonna dare someone to do baby blue in the school toilets but I dont want them to do I wonder if they will

  • My friend tried that and she was also scared out of her wits, but she lived. That all happened 2 years ago. But she still has two scratches on her left arm……..

  • The weight in your arms is the tiredness of your arms. If you keep swinging them they get tired and start getting heavier. If you drop Baby Blue you get a scratch on your arm… Twice you get another scratch… Three times and you’re dead.

  • I have heard so many people say they tried Bloody Mary and it doesn’t work, and at the same time I’ve heard so many people say that It does.

  • if you are connected already to the underworld i would suggest against these since the damage will be worse for you, if you were smart you would stay away from anything like this if weird stuff starts happening after you tried on of these find the nearest spiritual person and have them cleanse you of the evils within your spirit that want you to die

  • I tried a ghost-in-the-mirror type game before. There was fog or smoke or something in the mirror, and after chanting “Mirror, mirror” thirteen times and a sad ghost’s face appeared in the fog and smiled at me. I dropped that mirror and gasped. :’D

  • i did it :D i felt sumthin scratch me i just dropped it in the sink :L an came out the next day i went in the bathroom there were letters written on the mirror

  • I may try it today because I love a good scare. Wish me luck. I’ll post a comment if it works… and if i live. lol


  • as soon as i felt tht thing id b lik OMFG!!!! nd drop the thing on the ground nd start stomping on it hehehe babies scare mehhhhh

  • its all like “awwwwwwwwwwwwwww a child”, and the mam comes :”GIVE ME BACK MY BABY!!!” id be all like “OH, SH*T!!!!!!!” and chuck the baby at the mirror

  • I mouthed baby blue while doing the rocking motion and looking into a fogged up make-up mirror with baby blue written on it one time and my arms inexplicably got heavier. When I told everyone, they did it and new scratches appeared on their arms.

  • I played this at my friends house… This one actually worked. Candyman is fake and Mary never works but after I did this one there were distinct fingernail marks on my arm where I was holding the baby. Not scratches but the shape of fingernails. Stayed there for like 12 hours.

  • Just imagine putting the baby to sleep like a real one the the mom comes and say in whisper voice GIVE ME BACK MY BABY the u say SHHHH! XD lol

  • I don’t understand why anyone would want to play this. It’s probably not real, but still, I am NEVER going to try.

  • My best friend’s brother played this. He taunted the woman when she appeared in the mirror by saying ‘This is my baby now.’ She didn’t only tear his eyes out, she sliced his stomach open and tore his heart out. o.o

  • I tried this, for those who haven’t don’t it was FREAKING SCARY… I am alive cause I read this and knew what to do…. I have warned you

  • i agree with the first few ppl since the first few ppl actual hve sense nt to do this. i hve sense enough cuz i mma christian and u kinda right bout nt wanting mess with the devil cuz he wood ve sumthng to do with this

  • LOLOLOLOL I can see myself just throwing the damn thing in the bathroom sink and run out of the house!!!XD

  • I’m DEFINITELY going to do this at my sleepover Wednesday!
    BTW what is the best way to do Bloody Mary that really works? BTW what is Lady in White and Six Scratches?

  • I did a ritual with my friends which involved closing your eyes and putting your hands over them, then you had to rub your arms three times, as if you were cold. Then you had to call out “Scratch, Scratch, Scratch.” If u do it correctly, three scratches appear on your back. My mate did it and it WORKED!!!

  • My toilet is separate to the rest of my bathroom. I’m just imagining myself running hurriedly around the house with a giant, invisible baby in my arms.

  • Dude. This is so freaking Scary! I would love to try it but I would be wayyy too afraid that *I would mess up!

  • Kyuki,who is the lady in white?…i would like to talk to my mother’s deceased father…my grandfather.

  • my mate tryed this i closed the door so he was on his own in the bathroom and when he came out he his eyes where red i screamed when seeing in it he was shakeing crazy and the mirror was broken he had to get his eyes done so people i say don’t play this game ever

  • Don’t ever do any of these, no matter how unbelievable, cause oddly enough, they happen. The only one that is safe to do is the lady in white, as she allows you to see and speak to your deceased loved ones, she does not harm you. Candyman is fake, but the other two aren’t. I tried mary once when I was little, me and a friend went into the school bathroom at sally mauro elementary because of the huge mirror and, as there was an age old story that the school was haunted by her spirit. We turned on all the sinks and my friend started chanting her name, we didn’t even have to turn off the lights, after 3 times the lights cut off, the door locked, heard a scream, and when the light came back on, she was scratched up, and the item that I was holding was all the sudden gone. that was nine years ago, earlier this week I tried blue baby and last night I tried mary, I can’t even sit in daylight by myself now, and weird things have been happening all day. So please dont ever try mary, blue baby, or if youve heard of it, six scratches.

  • OMG this was so creepy i am not trying this. this is simular to candyman, bloody mary, and the ghost in the mirror legend. i wouldnt dare anyone to do this because if it works, i would feel bad and take the blame for whatever happens to them. TTLY KEWEL LEGEND THOUGH!

  • omg!!! im never doing that i dont wana mess with the undead cuz it will probably backfire. idk if its true but i dont dare find out and if anyone is gonna do it its not me i love my face the way it is cuz im beutiful an i don’t want my face coverd in blood so i agree with nightmare and daisy and chuckygirl they are so right so if u do it let me know if it works cuz there is no way im ever doing tht ever!!

  • oh wow…my friends tried this before. five minutes after they got in the bathroom, they ran out screaming XD
