Variety wrote that although the movie "displays cute smile and antics of Baby Sandy, combining some elemental and slapstick comedy sequences by Hugh Herbert and adult members of the cast, but all on a rather inconsequential story that serves nothing more than as an excuse for the individual situations and that "as an attraction, Little Accident will suffice as supporter in the family houses, lacking story strength to get attention above that slot."
