The Sims Freeplay- Teenagers Quest


This quest unlocks the ability to age your preteens into teens! There is no time limit for this quest so I recommend you take your time and save up some money for future quests
How long does this quest take to complete?


Time may vary depending on the star rating an item has.

  • Be nice to Osiris- 1 minute

  • Talk to a tree on a housing lot- 5 hours 30 minutes

  • Be Nice to Osiris- 1 minute
  • Be Inconspicuous on a Park Bench (go to the park and click on a bench)- 2 minutes 42 seconds


You can now age your preteens into teenagers! This post explains all you need to know about Teens

NOTE: You will need a teenager for the Pirate and His Goddess Quest in two quests time

You can also adopt a teenage using the option on a phone for real money once this quest is complete:

Watch my step by step video of this quest here[updated version is coming!]:

The next quest is Higher Education which unlocks school for teens!


please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 18 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 18?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

The next quest is Higher Education which unlocks school for teens!

  1. I have done the teenager quest and baked the birthday cake but when i say have a birthday on my preteen it tells me that if i age my preteen i loose progress from the school. Now he is A+++ level 10 when will they be ready to age?

    • Where do you find a house or a tree? You will already have a few houses in your simtown so go to one of those, if there isn’t a tree there then I have already said that if you don’t have a tree you can find one in the trees, plants and flowers section of the home store.
      Have you watched my walkthrough video on this quest, it may help you complete this task:

  2. Hi! I want two teens to get married as adults. Is there anything I can do when they are teens? By the way, your blog is soooooo helpful!😄

    • There isn’t really anything you can do as teens because when they become adults they will go back to being a friendship rather than a romantic relationship so I would just wait until they are adults
      I’m glad it helps!

    • No, you still have to bake the cake, you have just brought the recipe for it at the supermarket, when you click on a stove it will say you have 1 cake free to bake as you have brought it already.

  3. For the higher education quest does it matter if you build the high school in town or the one downtown i don’t wanna waste simoleons

  4. Hiya! Thank you SO much for all your posts, they are so helpful! I just wanted to say, I don’t think I would enjoy the sims as much as I do if I hadn’t noticed your amazing posts! Not trying to be nosy, but do you find out the stages of quests that you haven’t done yet by emailing the EA? Thanks and have a merry Christmas! 😀

    • You’re welcome! I’m glad it helps! 🙂
      For new updates they send me the early access version so I can complete new quests and events before they start in the game and create posts to help you all, everything else I have completed myself and then I update the posts by replaying the game from the beginning when I can 🙂
      Happy New Year!

  5. Hiya!
    Thank you for all your help on your blog,, it is invaluable!
    Anyway, help! I cannot work out how to grow onions as my preteen is not allowed. I have started the teenager quest on the assumption that I have done the previous quests required beforehand. I had a look through your quest list I don’t know what my mistake is ( besides just finding out from the above comments that my precooked birthday cake is quite useless) :0/

    • You’re welcome!
      Preteens cannot use the garden patches but you can complete this task with an adult sim, only tasks that say to use a preteen have to be completed with a preteen, otherwise it is usually best to use an adult.
      Oh no! It won’t be useless though as you will still be able to age a sim with it later 🙂

  6. Thank you, I apologise for being slightly dim lol, I never though to try an adult as it was a preteen quest!
    Dim moment 2: Yes of course I will 😔 Still not looking forward to a 24hrs wait though as I’m SO impatient lol.
    Ps: one more glassmaking session and I’m in the wedding venue rearranging the furniture mate! 😉
    Pps: Don’t write off those Dark Secret plots too soon, I’ve made some great adaptions that work for me! ( I would send you some screenshots by email but I’m having access issues atm grrr….

    • You’re welcome! Don’t worry, other people have made that mistake too- it isn’t obvious that you need an adult 🙂
      Well done!
      Ooh I’d be interested to see what you’ve done with that plot if you manage to sort out your email

  7. I already finished the teenager quest but the prom quest still labelled as coming soon, it said that i have to complete the teenager quest. What should I do:((

  8. I am stuck on the talk to a tree part of this quest. I can’t get my sim to talk to a tree.

  9. I’m on the Talking to a Tree task but my Sims keep showing a cross out when I try to get them to talk to a tree. They just won’t do it. Is this a glitch in the game? Thank you for your help site. I’ve taken so long to get to these quests. I gave up for a while, but I came back to it.

    • I have heard this from a few people now so it must be a glitch, I have let the makers know so hopefully they can fix it soon. You’re very welcome, I know issues like this are frustrating but at least this quest doesn’t have a time limit

  10. I am stuck on the grow onions. I grew them once for the full 8 hrs and nothing happened so I grew them a second time and used lp to finish and still nothing. Any advice?

  11. Hi. I am doing the quest now and I reached the point where I should bake a birthday cake. I do not have a preteen, only adults, toddler and a baby and I do not want to age anyone of them right now. What will happen if I bake the cake? Thank you.
