The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Broomstick Flying



GLITCH: The issue with the Broomstick Closet has now been fixed

Once you complete the Spell Casting Hobby you will be able to complete this hobby using your teen or adult sims, to begin this hobby you need to buy the magic broomstick closet from the promotions r us store or  the sorcerous supplies store for S10,000 and place it in one of your sims houses:

I cannot place the broomstick closet, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the broomstick closet in one of your sims houses.

The 7 day time limit will begin as soon as you complete the spell casting hobby, if you complete the broomstick flying hobby in the time limit you will unlock the fantasian cleaning mop:

Your teen or adult sim needs to click on the broomstick closet and select one of the options:

  • Quick broomstick flight- 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Long broomstick flight- 12 hours 30 minutes

NOTE: the first time you complete this hobby you can only buy one closet so only one sim can complete this hobby but you can send another sim to a neighbours town to complete this hobby (if they have a broomstick closet) after the first time as many sims as you want can complete this hobby as you can buy as many closets as you want

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the broomstick flying collectibles. Every time your sims complete one of the options above their broomstick flying hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once they reach 100% they will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the broomstick flying collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL 4 hour 30 minutes 12 hours 30 minutes
1-2 49% 138%
2-3 24% 69%
3-4 23% 64%
4-5 19% 55%
5-6 16% 46%

NOTE: it says 138% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what broomstick flying collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Street Sweeper Ruby Dashing Spiral and Jade Dashing Spiral are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Nose Diver Sapphire Dashing Spiral and Ruby SuperSim are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Low Rider Jade SuperSim and Sapphire SuperSim are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Speed Needer Ruby Loop and Jade Loop are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 High Flyer Sapphire Loop and Ruby Corkscrew are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Broom Master Jade Corkscrew and Sapphire Corkscrew are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby  (and they can do the shortest option to try and find the collectibles quicker!)

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed broomstick flying collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection/restart breakdancing trophies’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):


You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

If you complete this hobby in the time limit you will unlock the Fantasian Cleaning Mop,  I personally gave up trying to complete this hobby in the time limit, after getting the same item 5 times in a row, the mop costs S888,888 from the sorcerous supplies store- it wanders around sweeping, although it does also clean up pee and vomit.

Thank you Torie for this picture!

  1. Just a tip, but I noticed you can have two sims practicing the spell casting hobby even on the first run as long as one of them is practicing at a neighbour’s house. It’s probably the same for the broomstick flying, although I didn’t unlock it yet.
    Of course it’s not so easy to find a neighbour with the hobby item.

  2. I have the broom closet, if you want to add me as a neighbor. Game Center ID jbs1382. It is located in the two story house behind the swim center.

  3. Hi, I have the broom closet and magic wand podium. I need neighbor with broom closet to complete broomstick flying hobby in time.
    Add me via Facebook, my profil name Bangkit Dwi Lestari.
    Note:please send me a message first at Facebook so I know you

    • Hi! I also need neighbor with broom closet. I have one at the first house too. Can you add me on fb mum gameon? There are 2 profiles with your name, so not sure which one to send message/add. Thanks!

      • Can add me Trista Humphries on fb. Pic is. Blue headlights. I dont have broom yet but still need neighbors

    • Hello, I’d like to add you on Facebook but apprently it seems like there are more profiles called the same :/ Can you add me instead? My name is Noémi Karbuczky.

    • Hi, I just bought the closet yesterday and I noticed that whenever I try to get my sim to do either a quick or long broomstick flight, the sim will act like something is in the way. Could this be a bug of some sort?

  4. Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows what the mop actually does? I’m deciding if it’s worth spending a hefty amount of LPs to complete the hobby. If it doesn’t serve any purpose then I don’t think I’d want to spend so much LPs completing this in time after the amount I had to spend on the last hobby.

  5. I spent a lot of LPs to finish the hobby with in 7 dad and was very surprised to see the mop costs §888,888!!!

    Does anyone with it find this price worthwhile?

  6. Are the new dragon pets and magic hobbies life quests for any of the sims? I haven’t seen them come up as options for any of the personality types.

  7. I should have read your posts first! 😦

    I spent so much LP on the owl, only to realise I needed to spend more LP for it.

    After the ordeal, it prompted me to do the new task and I clicked “not now” cuz I was so tired of spending my LP.

    I just read your post about the timer still running. I quickly went back and clicked “start new collection” in a hurry. But It doesn’t prompt me to do the Magic mop task anymore….

    Do you know how I can start the magic mop task now? Do I have to choose something special? Or will it randomly prompt me again?

    These time limit tasks are so annoying. 😦

  8. I went thru 200 LPs between the 2 wizard hobbies. I ended up rolling the dice in the end and had better luck which never happens.

  9. Wait! So _after_ you unlock the mop it still costs 888,888? That’s absurd!! And pointless. Yes it looked cool in the wizard’s house, but it’s just another pointless dust collector really. I was even disappointed with the owl after the spell casting hobby, all you can do is have a conversation? Really? At least the dragons are cute.

  10. Wow. I had no idea the stupid mop cost so much! I’ve been working sims in two neighborhoods with zero downtime and like weightlessmagic, I have gotten the same stupid tricks over and over. I thought the broom looked looked cute bustling about the wizard’s crib but no way am I going to waste a bunch of LPs on this hobby only to turn around and spend practically a million simoleons on the mop. Some prize! Thank you for keeping us updated with your blog. You are a lifesaver.

  11. Wow, EA have really reminded us that they’re out to make money! Why 12 hours 30 mins? So that time is always slipping and you use your LP to catch up. I blew about 80 LP last night on spell casting – can’t believe how many times I finished a session without getting a new spell – no way are they ‘random’! 😛

  12. Hi there. Just wanted to know where I can access the wizardly home builders kit? I looked everwhere in the home store but can’t find it. Thanks for your time.

    • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  13. I also have tried for the stupid mop. I spent only 10 lp today and didn’t even get any new pieces of the puzzle. I have completes 2 long flights between last night and tonight and also did not receive even one puzzle piece and have 3 days left to gain the remaining 6 pieces. I am giving up. At least i can get the wizards building kit without completing the 12 broomstick flights to get the stupid mop and i wouldn’t pay any stupid enormous amount for it anyway!

  14. I bought a magic mop. It seems to be useless, it just moves randomly inside and outside the house. I wonder if it can clean a pee pudle. It doesn’t interact with sims (at least the adult ones).

    • You need to buy them from the house section of buy mode:
      Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  15. Does anyone know what was actually supposedly included in the magic home builders kit? I finally got the last of the twelve broom tricks today (I used no LP, just let the “random” feature run it’s annoyingly long course, this was almost as bad as the fishing hobby), and then perused the home store but couldn’t see anything that hadn’t already been available – magic candelabra, magic bookcase, tomes of knowledge, magic spells stack, cauldron fireplace, magic mirror … these things were all available as soon as I finished building the magic store, so what am I missing?

    • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  16. I’ve completed the spell casting hobby but I dont seem to have a broomstick cupboard in the sourcerous supplies shop? How can I get it?

  17. I have unlocked the wizardly home builders kit but where is it??? I don’t see any of the items everyone is referring to ;-(

    • Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  18. After completeing all of the broomstick tricks or whatever, I finally unlocked the sorcerer’s secret room. Said it can be found in the home store but I can’t find it. Anyone know where it is?

    • You have unlocked the wizardly home builders kit:
      Aged floorboards- floors tab of house section
      Old stone wall- walls tab of house section
      Magic wall- exterior tab of house section
      Window (stone)- windows tab of house section
      Runic door- doors stab of house section

  19. You should put more information about this hobby up like how you can get 5 LP after you complete it the first time and where to get the wizard house after completing the hobbt the forst time even if you don’t finish it in time to get the mop.

  20. I’ve completed the spell casting hobby but I dont seem to have a broomstick cupboard in the sourcerous supplies shop? How can I get it?

      • hiya
        wondered if you might have any thoughts on an issue I’m having.
        I have completed the potion brewing hobby and the spell casting hobby, the broomstick flying hobby was then unlocked. I bought the broom cupboard and placed it (I’ve tried it inside and outside of a house) but none of the sims are able to use it. They go to it and no matter which option I choose the SIM gets the broom out but then shakes it’s head and footsteps appear in a bubble above it’s head, like something is in its way. Do you have any idea what I might be doing wrong? I used different sims for the potion brewing and spell casting hobbies as I didn’t want to lose their max level at each, but now wonder whether I should have used the same sim for all 3 hobbies.

      • That is odd, you don’t have to use the same sim. Have you tried moving the cupboard to a different room or even a different house? It might be that they can’t get to it where you have placed it
        If you are still having this issue you might want to contact the makers to see if they can fix it for you, this post may help if you are unsure how to contact them:

  21. I am so stuck on this book of spells… cannot find the wand to pick up for the second time. And I do not have the stand in my hobbies to find the wand. Can you help?

      • Hi I have a question.  I have a teen that is a musician.  His hobby has and is costing me a lot! I have tried multiple times to get him to compose the 12 songs to complete the task and I even spent 10 life points on the 3 star piano which is doing nothing more than the 1 star that didn’t cost me anything! He still plays and composes it takes less time 48 minutes vs 1 hr but the same old songs that do nothing to get closer to completing the task. Any suggestions?

  22. Please add me as a neighbor through facebook. I am in the Seattle, WA (USA) area and I am Daisy Valerie Williams. I tried to put most quest and hobby things in one house (back row far right before bridge) and all haunted and salsa dancing items in house in front of it. I have spell casting and broom flying in another house. If you need something particular, you can email me.

    And “girl who games” you are awesome! I am also a girl who games, just got started a little later in life! 😉

  23. Thank you so much for this! The mop is ridiculously expensive. People can add me if they like 🙂 my Game Center name is: raachel.k

  24. I love your blog! I need more friends who are well developed in this game so I can accomplish more….add me at miranda978 or add my Facebook at Mandy jones and send me a message saying its for sims! I can help a lot of people too! My town is very advanced

  25. I have a broomstick closet if anyone wants to add me, Game Center name is “Wayvern H”. My closet is in the house just below the art gallery.

  26. Hi, my sim is stuck in the Wizards house and I can’t go there unless I have another person but it says it’s to crowded for more people. So how do I get in there to get her out?

  27. fyi: mop DOES clean up pee (2015).
    I saw this at a neighbor’s. no idea about vomit or dishes, though.

  28. Hey, I’m just wondering if you know, does the mop clean up plates from the cooking hobby as well as pee and vomit? My floors are covered with plates that I’d really prefer not to clean up manually, but I’d rather not spend all the LPs and Simoleons to get the mop if it doesn’t clean the plates up

  29. I really wanted this mop if nothing else for looks! Well I ended up spending 150 lps and an extension and didn’t finish. I am mad and broke. If I didn’t love this game I would quit!

  30. Omg I cannot move the broomstick closet! Be very careful where you put it because I just tried to remodel my house and it just won’t move 😦 Deleting the room won’t work.

  31. Hi. I know this post is quite old now, but I just purchased the mop from the online store (£7.99, I think – I must have been mad!) Anyway, I was still annoyed to find out that when I tried to place it, it said it would cost 888,888. However, a few days later, I had another look, and when I tried to place it in a house, it had gone down to 88,889. I can afford that, so I placed it in the house, only to find it didn’t take any Simoleons from me anyway! Just thought I’d share this in case anyone else has done/thought the same!

  32. I just finished the broomstick flying hobby and unlocked the pack. Apparently, now the secret door is unlocked with the builder’s pack.

  33. I finished the spellcasting hobby and it said i unlocked the broomstick flying hobby. Went and bought the closet out of the hobby store but when i went to place it, i can’t because it says “limited object” …which i know but never placed it anywhere? help? i looked all over to see if i maybe accidentally placed it somewhere but nothin!

    • A lot of players are having this problem with the new items tab, if you go to the hobby and career items tab of your inventory you should be able to place the broomstick closet.

  34. I don’t see the broomstick closet in any of the stores? I’ve completed the quest but I can’t find the closet anywhere

  35. Does the broomstick cabinet need a certain amount of space to be used. I placed it in my house, the sim can walk up to it and open it, take the broom out, but then it shows the two footprints sign and puts the broom away and will not do the hobby.

    • I tried it out for myself and it seems to work fine on a standard house lot but doesn’t work on a premium, I will let the makers know about this issue but for now try placing it in a standard house and it should work.
