Preteens can look after themselves without an adult to help using the items below to increase their needs:

 

  • Hunger- use a fridge or eat a meal
  • Bladder- use a toilet
  • Energy- use a bed, chair or coffee machine
  • Hygiene- use a shower, bath or sink
  • Social- talk to another sim or use a phone
  • Fun- lots of things including watching TV or using a trampoline!

Activities for Preteens

What hobbies can a preteen do?

What school do preteens go to?
Simtown elementary- once built you need to enrol them the same way you give an adult a job, use the preteen study desk to increase a preteens grade faster.

Once the birthday cake is ready click on it to store and then you can click on your baby and select the option to have birthday, they will then age into a toddler.

If you have completed the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest then you no longer need to bake birthday cakes, they will age automatically.


Needs

and how to fulfil them

A toddler needs some help from an adult to keep their needs fulfilled using the items below:

  • Hunger- another sim needs to interact with your sim and give them food or an adult can cook food and they can grab a plate
  • Bladder- use a toilet
  • Energy- sleeping in a bed (there are cute mini beds for toddlers) or sitting in a chair
  • Hygiene- an adult is required to bathe the toddler (if it doesn’t work sometimes it helps if the bath isn’t against the wall)
  • Social- talking to another sim or animals
  • Fun- playing with toys including kiddie pool, blackboard and a sandpit!

👍 I love the way toddlers walk, they are just so cute!

👎 They do need looking after which can be quite time consuming, especially if you only have a 1 star bath as it takes 5 minutes. It would be great if they could use the sink- maybe using a little stool!

The Sims Freeplay- Birthday Cake Ageing

There are 3 ways of ageing a sim:

  1. Birthday Cake (which is what we are going to focus on in this post)
  2. Auto Ageing– once the life dreams and legacies quest has been completed
  3. Advancing age early– once the life dreams and legacies quest has been completed

Before the life dreams and legacies quest has been completed you will need to use birthday cakes if you want to age your sims but you can’t age every sim until a quest has been completed:

Once you have completed a quest for toddlers you will have unlocked the ability for your baby to become a toddler but you now need a birthday cake

A birthday cake can be found under the baking section on a stove, it is near the bottom of the list and will cost you 5LP and takes one day to bake:

Once your sim has made the cake click on the symbol above the stove showing the cake to store it, you can then use it straight away or save it for later.
image

Now you need to click on the sim you want to age and you will see the option to have birthday:
image

Click on this and a pop up will appear, it will ask you if you want to use the birthday cake to age that sim.
image

 If you do, click yes.

If you don’t, click no.

Once you click yes your sim will magically grow up to the next life stage.

image

And that is how you age a sim using a birthday cake!

Do you need a cake for each sim you age or just one cake?
You need a cake for each, once your sim has aged the cake will have been used.

How can I find out how many birthday cakes I have stored?
If you click ‘have birthday’ on a sim it will say how many cakes are available, just click no if you don’t want to use a cake to age that sim.

Once I complete the life dreams quest do I still need birthday cakes?
No you don’t, you can advance a sims age early for 2LP but if you wait for them to complete their life dream for that stage or wait until they are ready to age automatically you can advance them to the next life stage for free.

The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Infant Sims

Adding/Creating an Infant NeedsActivities for InfantsRelationshipsAgeing an Infant


Adding/Creating an Infant

To unlock babies you need to complete the Two and a Half Sims Quest first. Once the quest is complete you need to place a cot in a house, you don’t need two sims who are married anymore but there needs to be 3 or less sims living there (4 sims in a house is the maximum) When you see the blue add sim circle above the cot you are ready!

Add a Baby will be the first option you see but once you have completed the A Bump-y Ride Quest your sims will be able to get pregnant so when you click on a crib you will see two other options:

  • Add a Baby– costs 3LP (will cost simoleons once you have completed the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest, the simoleon cost varies depending on how many other sims you have in your town) It takes 24 hours for the baby to arrive.
  • Pregnancy– costs 5LP and your sim will develop an expanding baby bump, after 6 days the baby will arrive.
  • Pregnancy Event– costs 2LP and your sim will develop an expanding baby bump while completing daily goals and other sims can complete support tasks, if you complete all the tasks and goals in the 9 day time limit your new baby will receive baby bonuses, if not your baby will still arrive after 9 days.

Read my Guide to Pregnancy for more information on the two pregnancy options

Once the baby arrives you can change their name, choose their gender, eye, skin and hair colour and outfit.

You cannot change the name, gender or skin colour again unless you use the ultimate makeover which costs 12LP


Needs

and how to fulfil them

An adult, teen or senior is needed to help keep your infant happy (except bladder as they will go in their diaper when they need to!)

  • Hunger- adult selects Give Food on infant /infant selects Be Fed on adult
  • Bladder- the infant will go in their diaper when they need to, this will decrease their hygiene need
  • Energy- infant selects Go to Sleep or Hibernate on themselves
  • Hygiene- adult selects Change Diaper on infant /infant selects Have Diaper Changed on adult
  • Social- adult selects Cuddle on infant /infant selects Be Cuddled on adult
  • Fun- adult selects Entertain on infant /infant selects Be Entertained on adult

Activities for Infants

Interactions

Crib Interactions:

The first picture above is the interactions you get when a baby clicks on an adult and the second picture is when an adult clicks on a baby

Cry for Sim/Pick Up Infant– The baby will be picked up by the adult so they can get out of the crib (this option will only appear once you have completed the Nanny Knows Best Quest)

Have Diaper Changed/Change Diaper- This improves the Hygiene need

Be Cuddled/Cuddle– This improves the Social need

Be Entertained/Entertain– This improves the Entertainment need

Be Fed/Give Food– This improves the Hunger need

There is nothing you can do for the Bladder need, you have to wait for the baby to go in their diaper then you will need to change the diaper

Holding Infant Interactions:

You will only get these interactions once you have completed the Nanny Knows Best Quest

The first picture above are the options you get when you click on the sim who is holding the infant, the pictures below are the options you get when the infant is on the floor Pick Up Infant/Cry for Sim allows that sim to pick the infant back up

Ultimate Makeover- not relevant, this allows you to change the name, gender or skin colour of the adult sim

Let Infant Crawl– the sim will put the infant on the ground and then you can then control where they crawl by clicking on the floor when the plumbob is over their head:

Change Diaper– This improves the Hygiene need

Give Food– This improves the Hunger need

Practice Walking– This is the cutest! This improves the Entertainment need

Once the sim is holding the baby you can click on objects around the house to get interactions:

  • Bed- Quick Bouncies and Bounce Marathon
  • Bath- Bathe Infant and Bath Time Fun
  • Sofa- Sit with Infant and Relax with Infant

They can also travel to other sims houses while holding the baby (they will only count as one sim unless they put the baby down)

Having trouble using the highchair? Make sure your sim can stand behind the highchair so they can put the infant in it, if they can’t blue footprints will appear:

Once your sim puts the infant down on the floor (let infant crawl option) the infant can click on objects around the house to get interactions:

Interactions if you are the baby and you click on the baby:

Ultimate Makeover– this allows you to change the name, gender or skin colour of the infant for 12LP

Have Birthday– This will turn the baby into a toddler (you have to bake a birthday cake first and have completed the quest for toddlers)

Go to Sleep– This improves the Energy need

Hibernate– This improves the Energy need again by sleeping for 24 hours


Putting a baby back in their crib
A sim needs to pick the baby up then click on the crib and select put infant in cot. The other option is calm to sleep:
