This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
************* MAJOR UPDATE - 4th March*******************

Please re-download. The files has the SAME name as the original release so it will simply overwrite you old file....

ADDED: New interaction for adults: now they can "Join" the toddler when he looks at himself in the mirror.

ADDED: The Toddler Mirror can now be "stepped over", like other small objects placed on the ground.

FIXED: The colour changing to pink at the end of the "Change Appearance" interaction.

FIXED: The interactions can now be correctly canceled.

FIXED: The message displayed when the Body skill point is gained doesn't mention any more the "Charisma" skill.

FIXED: The Catalogue Description now correctly displays the "+Body" tag (instead of "+Creativity").

(Also tested with perfectly!)


boblishman & Numenor presents:

The 'Gussie' Toddler Mirror

Once again, Numenor and myself have teamed up to create a 'brand new' object.

This time it's a 'toddler friendly' mirror, made from a soft outer non- allergic man made material and an unbreakable (polished non-toxic metal coated) plastic mirror - for maximum protection for your little ones....

As usual, I just made the mesh and textures and Numenor did all the 'magic' in making it a 'usable' object for Toddlers. The mirror has a fully working reflection surface, and can only be placed on the ground (not surfaces) - because the toddler need to crawl to it in order to use it.

There are TWO pie menu options:

1) "Look who's in the mirror!" - This allows your Toddlers to 'play' with the mirror... This included several animations, but, more importantly, playing with the mirror will slowly increase their 'body skill - because your toddler is learning to take care their face (:confused ... and you will receive a custom message once the toddler has gained a body point!

2) "Change appearence" - This works the same as the 'change appearence' for other Sims, and will allow you to change hair, makeup, accessories etc.

Whichever option you choose, your toddler will crawl close to the mirror...then change to the sitting position...and then 'scoot' up close to the mirror with their legs either side of it. Likewise, when the interaction is finished...your toddler will 'scoot' and crawl away from the mirror.

This new Toddler Mirror is only usable by Toddlers (other Sims will just get a 'There are no actions available' message)

Made with Milkshape SimPE v0.54 it has it's own unique (registered) GUID, is fully recolourable and is compatable with ALL games ( works with or without exapansion pack(s).

Polygon count = 624 (= good )

The single package contain two recolours....'Baby Blue'...and 'Pretty in Pink'. Deleting either of these colours will result in deleting the whole package and consequently the mirror itself.

You can change the colour at purchase time or using the design tool.

Price: 40 simoleons.

It can be found in the catalogue in Decorative/ Mirrors (for both Residential and Commercial).

The real thanks go to Numenor for making this such a wonderful object to please take time to thank him for those things (I just made the mesh/textures.

This has been tested extensively using the base (original) game, but will also work with any additional expansion packs. Please report any issues you may find in this thread, which will be checked by

myself and Numenor regularly.

Have fun with your toddlers....

Bob & Numenor

(Thanks and stars always encourage us to make more... and we'll share them of course! )

Wow! I like this object a lot! I want to change my toddler's hair and now I can. Plus they can play with it. Can you make a toddler tv out of this? That would be cute. It should have a custom made channels with images of other toddler's playing and laughing. Plus one channel that is a silly silly song.

And if you make the mirror into a tv you can have a video playing for the babies that looks sort of like this one. This is a video of a lot of babies laughing. One baby starts laughing and then his mother laughs and then the other babies laugh. The they stop and then they start laughing again. It is so cute and contagious.*http://u...laughbabies.wmv

Ahh, the object that Maxis should have made, but, didn't. Thank you so very much. I've been using cathair's toddler mirror from here at MTS2 for quite a while now, so I don't want to leave her out, or the original toddler mirror creator. I do want to say that this innovative new toddler mirror toy is just wonderful, guys!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! I always want to put custom hair on my toddlers but don't want to ruin the flow of DNA (or can't due to the fact that they are born in the family)
I KNOW I am not the only person who has been waiting for this! THANK YOU!

Default Love it! But...
I really like this object, but I appear to be having a small problem. The 'cancel' function does not appear to work, which means my toddler gets 'stuck' in the action for an extended period of time. Is this just a problem I'm facing?
