The Sims Freeplay- Sim Sign and Teen Mansion

Once the Teen Idol Quest has been complete you unlock the sim sign (located next to the estate agency in the town) you need to get it to level 3 by finding the resources to upgrade it.


What resources do you need?

  • TV Show Cameos
  • Radio Interviews
  • Magazine Photoshoots

How many of each piece do you need for each level?

  • Level 0= 5 of each
  • Level 1= 10 of each
  • Level 2= 15 of each

How do you find the pieces?
Each time you find all 3 notes for the drum kit, guitar and microphone you get a piece of each
Drumkit Notes= 1 TV Show Cameo
Guitar Notes= 1 Radio Interview
Microphone Notes= 1 Magazine Photoshoot

Make sure you restart the collection once you have found them all to find them again!

You can also get them randomly when you do actions but be prepared to spend LPs or it will take you a long time to complete the sim sign without them to speed things up!

How many LPs will it cost if you decide to speed up?

  • Level 0= 42 LPs
  • Level 1= 90 LPs
  • Level 2= 135 LPs

Total= 267 LPs

My teens are ready to age but they haven’t completed the sign, what do I do?

Just start a new teen on this hobby and keep going to complete the sign.
Once the sim sign is at level 3 it will be lit up, as shown below:

And then you can build the teen mansion on a premium residence, the first one free! After that they cost simoleons, the price varies depending on how many other houses you have but it is cheaper to build the teen mansion, than to buy an empty plot to build on (as you are paying for each floor)

What does the teen mansion look like?

Front of the house with 3 star
Ground Floor
2nd Floor
3rd Floor
Swimming Pool


If you didn’t unlock the volleyball net on the Its All Going Swimmingly Quest then don’t worry you get one in this house!

Personally I really like this house, I think it is well worth all those LPs I spent trying to complete the sign!

NOTE: teens cannot live in this house on their own even if they are the teen idol unless an adult lives there and they ask the teen to move in then you can move the adult out.

Anyone can live in this house, they don’t have to be the teen idol. It is just a normal house.

Want teens to live alone in this house? Watch this video to find out how to do that:

Thanks for reading!

  1. I have already done the teen idol quest, and I restarted to upgrade the sign and I cannot get the last piece of music for the electric guitar?????? I have been trying for days and it is not giving me the last piece. I have also spent 20 LPs randomly trying to get it and it wont allow me to either?! What do I do?!

  2. Is there anything else the sign resources are used for? I’m wondering because I have already upgraded my sign to level 3 and have my teen idol mansion built, but I am still receiving resources for random actions–in fact it seems I’m randomly finding them more often than when I was trying to build the sign!!

  3. Thank you very much for your blog πŸ™‚
    Im starting to build the sign and i dont understand if I have to find ALL of the notes of the hobby and finish the whole collection. Do I have to find them all and restart the hobby to keep adding TV Show Cameos, Radio Interviews and Magazine Photoshoots to the sign? I hope my question is clear. Thank you very much.

  4. I know level 1 was 5 of each resource. And level 2 is 10 of each resource. I don’t know if there is a level 3 to where I keep getting resources. Or does it stop at level 2? And then I’m able to build the house.

  5. You said when you delete rooms you get a few million. Are you actually deleting the walls in the room or just selling the items? I’ve tried to get rid of rooms before and I can’t delete the walls, only resize the room, which is why I’m asking.

  6. Hi I’ve been trying to unlock the sims sign at level 3 for months! Is there any other way to collect the items needed to do this? Or is the teen idol the only one who can collect them? Thanks.

  7. This is the part of simming that is no fun. Working on this collection for three months now and still have a ways to go. I want the house but I am frustrated with the process on this one. Just venting. Thanks!

  8. Hi weightlessmagic! First of all, thank you SO much for all of your posts! They are all really helpful! Second of all, can the teen idol live there with her/his family or do they have to live there on own? Thanks again for the really helpful websites! πŸ˜ƒ

  9. So after build the sign to level 3, You can build the Teen Mansion for free ?
    And how long the construcsion is ?

  10. I upgraded the sign and got the mansion. It’s awesome. Now what? There’s no point for my sim to continue practicing her hobby right? I can move her on to other hobbies. I only have 2 teens.

  11. I was wondering if they had to have adults/parents to live in the teen mantion or can the teens live there with other teens by themselves?

    • Teens cannot live in this house on their own even if they are the teen idol unless an adult lives there and they ask the teen to move in then you can move the adult out.

      Anyone can live in this house, they don’t have to be the teen idol. It is just a normal house.

  12. My favorite way to get items for the sign is to have one of my sims repeatedly change clothes, but… I have only gotten magazine photo shoots and radio interviews – no tv cameos! I was hoping to avoid using LPs, but it looks like I’ll have to, to balance it out. Two days, and I have 8 mag, 8 radio, and only 1 TV. :/

  13. I put all my sims in sleepwear, after I finished that event quest, just so I could enjoy looking at all the new stuff, and happened to notice a spotlight rising after one of them changed. Since then, I’ve been experimenting, and they get them from everything, it seems – just not very often! Lol! But I’ve gotten them from cooking, diving, figure skating, and admiring posters! πŸ™‚

  14. May you please help me? How do I level up “The Famous Sim Town Sign”? I’ve been trying for ages and I’m still on Level 1, and I’m WAY passed the Teen Idol/Road to Fame career/quest. I’ve got enough lights and microphones as required to level up, but I can’t seem to get the movie marker board. SCREENSHOT: And I’ve gone through 2 teens so far to try to level the sign up, but no luck. I’ve tried leveling up as my teen Sim plays various instruments, but it doesn’t seem to do anything anymore. Supposedly you can gain the items needed doing other tasks, besides your teen playing instruments, such as your teen using a study desks or interacting with other Sims etc, but I’m not sure. It seems like no matter how much or how many times you have your teen Sim play instruments and complete the collection to gain the resourced requirements I don’t gain anything. =[ Please help, this is driving me nuts! Thank you for your time!!

  15. i don’t understand what you mean by millions of simoleons from deleting the rooms & pool when i only got 300k from it. i basically lost money

    • previously you could make so much money by deleting everything because pools were expensive, in this latest update they have made pools cheaper so this no longer works and has now been removed from the post.

  16. Hi I was just wondering where to find the toothbrush and vanity that they have in sims freeplay. It says free in the home store but I can’t find it anywhere but I still get ads for it. Btw I love your blog I always read it!πŸ˜„

    • Hi! Your blog is my non stop reading material ever since I started lol. It’s like the SFP bible! Your readers are very appreciative of all your efforts and humor! We ADORE the masterpiece that is: The girl who games. You are talented! You have made this game fun to play, without spending $. It’s a long road but patience, and the cooking hobby, will get you everything in this game! πŸ˜€

      About the Phillips Vanity…You find it in the featured section, in the home store. Currently it’s only 1 toothbrush, but the vanity sink seems unlimited, and yes both items are free :p


  17. How many of each do you need on each level? Also how many lps does it cost for each and per level?

  18. I love your blog! Thank you for all of the posts, they help a lot! I was wondering how long it takes to build the teen idol mansion. Does the time vary depending on the amount of houses you already have?

  19. Hi, love your blog btw!
    Just wondering about the instruments in the teen idol house? Are they premium or three star? What kind?!

  20. I have completed the sim town sign and it is all light up, however there is no option to build the teen mansion, after the Scandinavian House I have the two story unfurnished home and the three story unfurnished house. What happened to the Teen Mansion

  21. Please help, I’m done with the town’s sign, but I couldn’t find the teen idol mansion in the house options? I don’t know what to do!

  22. Hi @girlwhogames, this was really helpful but one thing I noticed is that it’s hard to find information on how big the lots are. A lot of people say have info on the dimensions or the houses … But no info on the dimensions of the actual lot. I don’t know it just seems kind of important because you want to build on a lot that’s big enough for your design so knowing the size of the lot is really beneficial. SO I was wondering counting block by block how big with some of the lots were. I think that’d be good information to provide ! πŸ™‚

  23. Hello, a question about the mansion, is it free? Because i clicked on tap for details and it says 478,000 simoleons??? Can you help me? Thank you greatly appreciated 😊

  24. Hi! Do you know whether the teen mansion keeps its special fence on the mystery island? I remember reading somewhere that out of all the houses this one does keep its fence but I’m not sure and I don’t want to waste all that money on a lot and then just get the house when really, all I really want is that supercool fence πŸ˜‰

  25. I’ve had the mansion built for a while now, unable to use the pool because it is constantly dirty. Is there any way to clean it without purchasing the automatic pool cleaner?

  26. Hi! Love your blog! Everytime I have a question about the Sims, your post is the first to show up, and I appreciate the time you took to answer everyone’s questions. I was just wondering what exterior wall was used on the Teen Idol Mansion. Does it eventually come up once I hit a certain level? Because I can’t seem to find it. Was it only available for a limited time? Or is it strictly for the Teen Idol Mansion? Anyway, thanks for all your help.

    • Thanks!
      Do you mean the exterior wall around the house or the exterior walls to the house?
      If it is the walls around the house then that is only available on the teen mansion. If it is the walls on the house that is called Smooth Stone and it is available in the home store but I am not sure what level it unlocks at, sorry! Try going to a different house to find it as you won’t find it in the store when you are at a house that already has that walls.
      You’re welcome!

  27. It says that I can pay a number of LPs when I click on the sign varying on how much more I need to do, If I pay the LPs will it only give me one more of a certain thing or will it complete it

    • There are three resources and underneath each resource you have the amount you need and the LPs it will cost, the LPs it costs you is to complete one of the three resources, so you would need to use LPs on each resource if you didn’t have them all to be able to upgrade the sign.

      • So if for example I need to pay 30LPs to complete the magazine photoshoot, will it complete that whole magazine resource, like it will go from 5/15 to 15/15? Or will it just add 1 and just make it 6/15
