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 teen is ready to age but they haven’t completed the sign, what do I do?

Just make a new teen the teen idol 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.

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Teen Idol

20140216-163459.jpgThis post will tell you all you need to know about the teen idol hobby.

I’m going to tell you a little bit about how to do the hobby and what you can unlock if you find all the notes.
Who can be a teen idol?

Only one teen can be the teen idol. (once your teen is an adult you can then turn a new teen into the teen idol)
How can I be the teen idol ?

By completing the road to fame quest (you complete the collection once during that quest) using the instruments.
Where can I be the teen idol?

At home using the instruments.

What are the options? (these are the 1 star, 2 star and 3 star times)

Keyboard- Write Song- 1 hour, 54 minutes or 48 minutes

Bass Guitar- Write Song- 2 hours, 1 hour 50 minutes or 1 hour 40 minutes

Drum Kit- Write Song (drums)- 3 hours, 2 hours 40 minutes or 2 hours 20 minutes

Guitar- Write Song- 4 hours, 3 hours 40 minutes or 3 hours 10 minutes

Microphone- Write Song (sing)- 5 hours, 4 hours 30 minutes or 4 hours

What are the teen idol skill levels?

  1. What’s an Instrument?
  2. Karaoke Specialist
  3. Support Act
  4. Triple Treat
  5. Virtuoso
  6. Em-TV Award Winner

How do I collect notes?

There are 3 notes per instrument, once the time is up click the exclamation mark to find the note

What notes are there to collect?

The pictures below will show you all the notes you can collect:



  • Keyboard- Basic Melody, Ballad, Tear Jearking Key Change
  • Bass- Slappin’ Rhythm, Finger Pickin’ Good Lick, Flyin’ Fingers of Funkstown
  • Drumkit- Drum Roll, Cymbal Choke, 28min Cowbell Solo (once found all 3- gives you 1 TV show cameo to use on sim sign)
  • Guitar- Bar Chord, Blues Riff in B, Heartfelt Solo (once found all 3- gives you 1 radio interview to use on sim sign)
  • Microphone- Vocal Melody, Backup Vocal, Vocal Overdub (once found all 3- gives you 1 magazine photoshoot to use on sim sign)

This post explains the sim sign and the teen mansion you unlock once the sim sign is completed!

What do I win?

1st time- complete during road to fame

2nd and further times- 3 LPs
I can’t find one of the notes, 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 3 LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start collection again at the bottom of the notes list to start over.
