The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Teenage Sims

This is just a quick post to tell you about teens.

How do I create a teen?
To be able to age a preteen into a teen you need to have completed the teenagers quest
You will then be able to bake a birthday cake on a stove which takes a day and costs 5LPs. Once the birthday cake is made click on it and then you can click on your preteen and select the option to have birthday, they will then age into a teen. This post explains in more detail birthday cake ageing

If you have completed the life dreams and legacies quest then you no longer need to bake birthday cakes, they will age automatically.

What is next?
They will probably look strange so take them to a wardrobe to change their hair and clothes.

How do I look after them?

Needs– teens can look after themselves without an adult to help using the items below to increase their needs:
Hunger- fridge
Bladder- toilet
Energy- bed, chair, coffee machine
Hygiene- bath, shower
Social- talking to another sim, phone
Fun- lots of things including tv, computers and trampolines!

If you click on the teen you will see the option to have birthday, only use this when you want to age them.

They can drive but they need to have an adult with them!

What hobbies can a teen do?

What school do teens go to?
Simtown High- once built you need to enrol them the same way you give an adult a job, use the teen study desk to increase a sims grade faster

Pros: Can look after themselves without help from adults, have lots of hobbies to choose from and can now plant too!

Cons: They don’t make a lot of money at school so I usually just have them plant beans throughout the day

Teens can interact with sims of all ages! Read the  Relationships post for more details.

Hope this helps!
