Babycore involves "gentle", "pastel" or "cute" childlike innocence. This aesthetic leans toward softer, more Kawaii elements, and is distinguished from Kidcore through its usage of lighter colors and visuals typically reserved for babies and toddlers.


Visual

There is a small but significant divide in the Babycore aesthetic community between soft, simple, very light-colored visuals, and plastic, cluttered, colorful visuals. These two sections of the community are not different enough to become their own unique aesthetics; they are united as a community by their shared values of childlikeness, innocence, and "cuteness", and visually by the use of pastels, infants' and children's items.
