There are new time limited prizes when you complete the 9 day pregnancy event in the time limit and earn the baby bonus between the 15th-23rd May

Can’t put on the bikini? This pack contains bikinis- to put one of them on your sim select the bikini in the maternity section and it will add the green tick but you won’t see it on your sim (they will still be wearing their current maternity clothes. Save the changes and when they go swimming they will change into the bikini.

If you start the 9 day pregnancy event anytime during the time frame you have the chance of earning the maternity items in that pack if you complete the event in the time limit, for example if you start a pregnancy event on the 22nd May and complete in the time limit you will earn the items above

You need to have completed the first pregnancy event in the A Bump-y Ride Quest before you can earn the maternity prizes

  1. I really like the Star Wars costumes, however a Star Wars quest would be better. As a long time player I don’t have too much new in the game. I just finished the first Urban Developer event and it was the long, boring, annoying and impossible to win the prize. After I spent weeks to collect resources and spent approximatly 16 millions simoleons, I have got an empty apartman. It’s ridiculous.

  2. I feel like they’ve packed this update big time to cope with the unfortunate situation going on in the world right now. Everything here is very overwhelming. It’s so hard to enjoy this game at the moment.

  3. Is the update available to us on the 20th, or when the live event starts? I keep refreshing but no new update is showing in my App Store. Thanks!

  4. Hello! Blog is as woderful as always! I think that the name of post should be Gallery Francais Update though 🙂

    Love that SimChase is returning too! Did you know that when a prize is missed on SimChase we can get it using SPs after the chase?

    • Thanks! I agree it should be but it’s definitely called the Holiday Francais update- no idea why!
      Yes, I never complete simchase myself so I see this everytime, it’s far too expensive still!

  5. I like that this update has so many things, though I’ll have to make some choices on how to spend my SP. I haven’t done a Simchase in months, I feel they’re easier now, is it just me? I’ve managed to finish the first two days with about 7 hours to spare and without spending any SPs. I probably won’t be able to get the final prize, but I’m okay with getting some of them.

  6. I am (still) unable to download this new update. Once it arrived, google play now says that my device isn’t compatible with the app. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • Unfortunately every so often older devices become no longer compatible to play the game on, this is because they cannot cope with all the updates, you can still play the game but you will not be able to get any new updates and if you deleted the game from your device you wouldn’t be able to reinstall it.

  7. Hello! For the upcoming maternity pack event on 15 May, do we have to complete the bumpy ride quest before we can participate? Or will the pregnancy event in the bumpy ride quest qualify for the maternity pack too?


  8. Hello!! First of all, this is my first time commenting here so I hope I’m doing this correctly. Second I have a question. So, I been doing the winter wonderland quest (and I’m almost done btw!!). However, I’m confused bc I didn’t get the ice staircase…while my mom (who also plays the sims) did. We have both been doing this quest at the same time (helping each other out) and I don’t think it’s fair that we both are doing the same things and she got it while I didn’t. Do you have any idea why that might be the case?

    PS love your blog. I have been reading it ever since I started to play the Sims Freeplay again, and it makes things soo much easier!!!

    • Have you completed the multi story renovations quest yet? You will need to complete this quest before you have access to the stairs tab in the store, once you do you will find the ice staircase
      Thanks, I’m glad it helps!
