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! )

I love both of your other items I've installed...
Trying this one for sure.

Even tho in OFB toddlers can have their appearance changed without it, my toddlers need a break from the bunny.

Why didn't Maxis think of this?

At least your toddlers HAVE hairstyles - mine always end up bald! Therefore this will be invaluable, I'm sick of bald toddlers :P

Just letting you know that this object isn't compatible with my version of galmour life (I live in australia - not sure if that makes any difference or not). It isn't showing up in buy mode & it's being converted to a xylophone when already in play.

It works in my Glamour game... I don't understand why it doesn't, in yours... I don't think that the Australian version is different.

Please double check that the file "BobL-Numenor_ToddlerMirror_AllGames.package" IS in your downloads folder; if so, re-download and re-install it.

I didn't use it on their second. Besides, it's not a hack, it's a custom item.

It's awesome, and it worked before I installed OFB, but it doesn't work with OFB for me. Any suggestions?

Saferinpairs - I've tested the mirror right now in a game like yours (Base game + OFB) and it works fine... Maybe you have something in your Downloads that prevents it from working correctly? Try starting the game temporarily removing all the downloads (except this mirror) and check if it works.

I just downloaded your mirror tonight and I had a problem with my game. I only have Sims 2, no expansions. I had a toddler change his appearance in your mirror which worked fine. Later he became a child. As a child i clicked on "Change appearance" in a regular mirror, but once i looked through the different options i decided to keep his current appearance so i clicked the check box. The appearance box closed and the child disapeared. I don't know what happened to him, theres no urn in the room, and i adopted a child to see if he had somehow gotten sent to the orphanage but he hadn;t. Your mirror was the only object i downloaded. Has this happened to anyone else? Were you able to somehow get your child back?

I was able to get him back using boolprop. I still don't know what quite happened but i'm going to keep him away from mirrors, thats for sure

Rayneismyname - I'm sorry but I couldn't reproduce the issue; I made everything as you describe (a toddler changes appearance with the toddler mirror, then grows to child, uses a normal mirror to change appearance but exited it without any changes). My child is still in the game and didn't disappear...
I don't know the cause for this "disappearance" in your game, but as a general rule, whenever something like that happens, the best thing to do is to exit the lot without saving.
