toddler month


Okay, here’s my first entry for Pools & Toddlers Month:

Mini-Tutorial: Building a Toddler-Pool

1. Define the space of your pool with floor tiles

2. Fill the cutout with the Nile terrain paint

3. Add some railing, but make sure you use one that Sims can route through.

4. Add waterworks from the fountains category. They’re also walk-through, so don’t worry about the footprint (and you can be far more creative than I was here :)

5. Open ‘buydebug’ (or purchase a toychest) and place some water-related toys in the pool.

6. Enjoy!

So here it finally is: The ceiling-suspended toddler swing!

..though it can also be placed under a tree. It’s fully functional, and therefore requires either the store-swing or an aequivalent to work. It has four recolorable channels (seat, poles, beads, ropes). This swing is specifically designed for toddlers - technically, you can also use it for babies, but they’ll be hovering in it.

Download: Dropbox / SimFileShare

The usual Warning: In real life, a swing of this type is not suitable for babies at all, and toddlers should only use it under careful supervision!

Fairy Nuff says ‘EA are gold diggers’! Fancy leaving out Toddlers from TS4?!

So this month - lets celebrate Toddlers, Pools, and heights in our Sims. After all, it’s the players and our imagination and love that has given this game the awesomeness and longevity.

To join in, use the tag 'july2014 sims toddler month’, and post something toddlerish, pool-ish, or height-ish. It can be screenshots from your game,  stories, CC Links , Downloads for any of the current games (1,2,3) Sims 1 has pools!

From 1 July  where-ever in the world it starts first to the last hour of the last 31 July 2014 on the planet - feel free to post those toddlers and other stuff that makes us go Awww!


A Habersham County grand jury has decided not to charge any of the law enforcement officers involved in the botched drug raid that disfigured a toddler.

Nineteen-month-old Bounkham “Bou Bou” Phonesavanh’s nose was detached from his face after a stun grenade landed in his playpen during the raid, carried out by a Habersham SWAT team in May. According to an incident report obtained from the Habersham sheriff’s office, deputies were told to anticipate a cache of weapons and armed guards at the home.

A search inside turned up neither guns nor drugs. Wanis Thonetheva, who didn’t even live at the house, was arrested later that day without incident and charged only with possession of methamphetamine.
Mawuli Davis, the attorney for the Phonesavanh family, said the family was “devastated” to learn no criminal charges would be brought.


Default Replacement: Sippy-Cup

  • Overwrites the basegame’s green baby bottle. You can have only one replacement at a time. (So if - like me - you have used a replacement for ages, remember to take it out first.)
  • Two versions: One has handles and solid color, the other has no handles and is transparent.
  • In a highchair, toddlers turn the cup 90°. EA weirdness.
  • Credits go the the usual crowd (s3oc/pe, gimp, milkshape)
  • Idea: Fleurdeprairie

To close out Black History Month ..YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS. Saw this and CRIED! There have been so many times as a POC I’ve been told I can’t do something. To see someone so small say I can learn, I can be strong, and I can change the world…..if you want to know why we have Black History Month…this is it.
