What paintings are there to collect?


What do you win?

The first time you have 7 days to complete to unlock the pop up bookshelf, which costs S9500 and can be found in the toddler section. Not sure its really worth it though!

If you don’t complete in time you still unlock the cooking playset once you complete the collection, which costs S5000 and can be found in the toddler section. It is really cute!

Complete the collection six more times to unlock a new outfit for a female and male toddler each time


Further times you receive 3LPs for completing the hobby

Storing Paintings

There is an added extra on this hobby where you can store and place paintings a toddler has created around your house, which is really cute! To do this an adult sim needs to click on the easel after a painting has been created and select the option to store painting in inventory. The painting can then be found in the decorations section of your inventory to place on a wall.

I can’t find one of the paintings, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs, it would be cheaper just to speed up the option instead of using a lucky spin.

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection on the list to start over.
